We stayed at the Hotel Ovidius for 4 nights. The thing that struck us most about our stay was how extremely helpful and kind the staff was. I had made a mistake in the booking, and we were facing a near doubling of our charge. But, they worked out a nice alternative immediately, without fuss. But, their efficient kindness continued...

Located near Sulmona;s beautiful medieval center...nestled in a dramatic scenery of surrounding mountains and comes alive with confetti shops displaying their wonderfully colored confections. The confetti are produced tin the area and exported throughout Italy and the world. Park yourself at a cafe around Piazza Garibaldi and enjoy the lively passigiatta in the late afternoon.

The room was large, clean, comfortable and far enough away from the road to be peaceful and quiet. From a UK exchange rate perspective we received good value for money for the quality of hotel with the price per night being about £95 inclusive of a normal continental breakfast which consisted of a range of fruit juices, tasty croissants, good...

This evening we returned to our hotel from a long trip to sights and hilltop villages in the area, we were out for about 4 or 5 hours: it has been a hot day and it was exhausting and we just wanted to put our feet up. We arrived to the sound of very loud pumping music. After a glass... More

Mrs. Brogan, We are very sorry about this review because we really did not expect this. The “Aperitivo Party” with the photo exhibition has been perfectly organized in an elegant atmosphere, soft lounge music and has been attended by many hotel guests and people from Sulmona and around areas.
