A few steps from the trainstation and the beach, right in the middle of the new town and only a few minutes walking to the old town. Spotless bathroom and room with balcony and streetview for 90 euro, breakfast included. Continental breakfast was ok. Staff ok. This certainly is a hotel I would recommend!!!

So, the bed is ok, breakfeast is poor (some of the breads from day before), air condicioned doens t works in cold temperature, the view is horrible from the window. Is ok for stay maximum one night in that place. The cleaners are very friendly staff and help in all you need.

Dear TiagoBG, we appreciate your wish to leave your personal opinion about Calypso. We are conscious about the fact we can't even compare ourselves with a luxury place like MonteCarlo and we are pleased to notice how much you enjoyed our staff availability for any of your request.

My husband, daughter and I were visiting the French Riviera and decided it would be fun to go to Italy for the night. We arrived with no plans and found this hotel in a great location to the beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. The price was quite high for what we got. €110 ($155 CAD) for an outdated musty smelling room....

Three Canadian couples stayed at The Calypso for three nights. We loved it!! Very convenient to everything in the town, especially the Friday Market, which is not to be missed. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms beautiful! Two of us had balconies, be sure to ask for a room with this feature. Breakfast was more than expected and delicious.... More

Just spent one night after a long train ride. The night lady was very nice and served a great cold breakfast. Price was a bit higher than we have paid for a shared bath but everything is spotlessly clean and beds so comfortable...great sheets! No problem with shared bath and very close by. Highly recommend the Calypso!

Deciding to break our journey between central France and central Italy, we picked Ventimiglia as it was on the beach only 20 minutes to Monaco and San Remo, was quiet and from what we had seen was quite interesting. When we looked at the available options for a hotel stay via the Internet (including reviews of Hotel Calypso), we decided... More

Location is the best thing about this hotel. Wifi was strong. We had a room with a balcony looking out at other apartments out the back, while nothing spectacular it was lovely to have somewhere to sit down outside. Room was basic but clean. The shower is a bit of a weird set up, a shower over a bath tub,... More

Found by accident. Wanted to stay a commutable distance from Monaco for F1. Simple hotel family run with charm and simple needs all covered. Breakfast is fabulous with lots of fresh food served from before 7 until 10. Perfect start for a busy day. Staff catered well for guests needs. Room cleaned every day with fresh towels.
