We were called to tell us that the pool would be closed - fair enough. We were not told that the restaurant would also be closed. After returning from off site dinner there were no on-site secure parking spaces meaning we had to park off hotel in the street. The bar was closed whenever we were in the hotel -... More

This small, recently refurbished hotel is situated at the top of a hill. It's a sttep climb us on foot but is driveable and there's a courtesy bus provided by the hotel which runs into town four times a day. The hotel is modern with a spacious 24 hour reception with English speaking, helpful staff. Our room had another room... More

This hotel is up the hill away from the main road leading into San Remo town centre and as such enjoys stunning views towards the sea and peaceful surroundings; but needs to be accessed by car. The hotel though offers a free shuttle service at pre-set times for those who need it. Rooms are airy and clean, shower cubicles on... More

This hotel has a lot of potential, but for now is an interesting mix of the good and the awful. First the good, the rooms are clean, the pool is great, some of the staff are excellent. But things do go wrong. The rooms (like most buildings in Italy) have an iron curtain to keep the heat out. Unfortunately ours... More

The hotel is nice and clean. Great atmosphere and nice staff. The breakfast could be definitely improved. Really bad location - we had to use taxis and it's really difficult to find some on the way back to the Hotel. I wouldn't say it's a good value for money. I think it would be more suitable do families with kids... More

Fantastic place for the money! If you can live with the usual casual style of the Italians, and like to sleep sound at night, but still be close to the city, with a spectacular view, the Modus Vivendi is something for you! I was there with my family for two nights and we had a blast! The hotel staff was... More

We're glad we stayed there! The room was good with a small kitchen and free TV. Nice view from the balcony. Good service. Elevator access. The pool was alright with an ice cream bar. The hotel is located high up on a hill and it takes 20 minutes to walk to San Remo and 10 minutes to the beaches. If... More

We stayed at this hotel in July 2012. I know previous reviewers have complained about the road, yes its bumpy(caused by tree roots) but its not really a problem, just take it slow. The hotel staff are very friendly, we arrived when Italy were playing a major football game, (they lost!) but were made very welcome in the restaurant and... More

I stayed at La Rosa dei Venti in May 2012 and my entire experience was positive from start to finish. The staff at the front desk were always smiling and willing to answer any questions we had, the cleaning staff were friendly and accommodating and the hotel was close enough to all the action, while tucked away to avoid all...
