I found this hotel by luck and am in LOVE with it I felt so relaxed and at home, I am going back, often. Great beach weekend getaway from Rome, just 1:45 minute drive or 2.5 hr train ride south east of Rome to Formia, which does not seem such an exciting town apart from its fantastic windsurf and kitesurf...

Stayed there for a conference in October. Really great place. Nice staff and fantastic food. Simple but clean rooms, good mattress. A place with a great history as well. Went swimming twice in the sea below the hotel. Definitely a recommendation!

While visiting family in Formia, we stayed at this beautifully preserved historic hotel. It was a compound consisting of several buildings. This hotel was actually the home of the Italian Royal Family. It is said that Queen Elena loved this place. Our room was immaculate and well-appointed. The bedroom furnishings were provincial style while the bath was ultra modern and... More

I discovered this hotel almost by mistake at the last moment. I arrived in the dark so could not appreciate the looks of the hotel not the history. Only with the sun the next morning and a chat with the sweet receptionist I strted to realize what I had discovered......this hotel was previously the summer residence of the Italian Royal... More

We stayed for three nights in the Grande Albergo Miramare in late August. This hotel is lovely, it has a certain old style glamour about it in everything from the palm trees to the terraces to the furnishings. The biggest draws are of course the views and the beach. The views across to Gaeta are beautiful. Many of the rooms... More

The location is beautiful with a nice view and nice maintained little gardens. The pool is not that big but very nice (even if it closes at 18.00) and the beach is just some steps away. The difficult part is to get back up from the beach. The rooms are nice and spacious either with balconies or terraces but ask... More

The hotel has an impressive entry with palms and the feeling of an old palace. It is directly on the beach and has a bar and a restaurant. The rooms are old but clean and well in shape. The whole hotel has an aura of a glorious past. However: Breakfast: as they were preparing the restaurant for a wedding we... More

I have been staying at this hotel for over 20 years... my father who is Italian and lives in Rome has been coming here for over 50 years. This hotel is absolutely beautiful and a true hidden gem. I am sure part of my enchantment with this hotel has to do with my emotional attachment to Formia.... it is equidistant... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights at the end of September. The rooms themselves, albeit old fashioned, were clean as was the bathroom. The hotel has a beautiful location on the beach so if you are a sun worshipper this would be ideal. For the elderly there are a number of steps which you have to use to... More
