I arrived about 8.30 pm and despite the air conditioning, I had a sleepless night due to the very loud music. I tried to complain without success. The following night I was given a new room which was very quiet. The hotel has a private beach and a very pleasant terrace overlooking the beach. The rooms are large but dated.

When we first arrived and surveyed this 3 star hotel in Formia (2hours south of Rome on the west coast) I said to my daughter" good call" to which she agreed, we were soon to be disappointed. The hotel. was indeed at sometime in history a palace.The décor, furnishings (although some are reproductions) and ornaments in the common areas are... More

We stayed here in off season, October while traveling with friends. The hotel is of the Grand Old Dame type. It seems to be used mostly by Italians for special occasions and the dining room is absolutely gorgeous with an outdoor eating terrace also. Our rooms were large, clean, comfortable, pretty and opened on to a beautiful, huge terrace directly... More

"a 3* italian experience", good price, rather clean and comfy. pretty far away from center. what I didn't like was the hospital feeling, with ceramic floor, iron bed and so on, white furniture... pretty far from center.

Although the hotel abd rooms are quite outdated, the staff and food make up for it. Also the price is not that high

I recently spent time in the Fagiano Hotel as part of a wedding party. The hotel itself it lovely, with large rooms, many of which have terraces with either sea or mountain view. The sea view rooms were fantastic and the terraces were surprisingly big with lots of room to stretch out and relax. The main hotel terrace where meals... More

We loved the view from the restaurant. We had 2 separate rooms with 1 bathroom for 2 adults and 2 teens. The a/c worked well. There was a balcony looking over the entrance and gardens. It was very clean. A filling breakfast was included. There was a private beach for the hotel guests and the lifeguard set up our lounge... More

Not even in the local language - 'riscaldamento'. When examining the hotel, we explained that my wife required heat due to her health. The desk clerk said that he would turn it on while we were out to dinner... which he did. The radiator was nice and warm when we got back to the room, and we figured that the... More
