First: We arrived in Tropea, went to the hotel, was too early for check in so we did all the arrangements and said we were going to come back later at night. We arrived finally at the hotel around 11 pm with the kids and the hotel was closed. It took 15 min before the night clerk opened us the... More

Our stay here was really great. There was 4 of us traveling together and our. room was spacious, clean and had a great view. The hotel was only a 5 minute walk from the bustling centre of Tropea. The staff were extremely helpful, even helping us book our next lot of accommodation at the end of our stay. I would... More

Me and my friend absolutely loved staying at this hotel. the staff was super friendly! Simone the driver/director is a great host! he was very hospitable and charming and was very accommodating! The location is perfect because its not in the dead center of Tropea but a 10 minute walk from there. The property is very lush and has lots... More

My boyfriend and I just got back form this exquisite vacation in Tropea and we wanted to share our thoughts on TripAdvisor. I have to say I'm rather surprised by some of the reviews I've read on this hotel. One person said "No charm or character" (Vicky 76000), are you kidding me? This place is all about charm and character,... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night recently, mostly as it offered car parking, we thought this useful on our first visit to Tropea using a hire car. This was a mistake as better hotels nearer the centre can use the inexpensive public carparks nearby. I was glad we stayed for only one night. We paid a very... More

On arrival at this hotel, we found it to be practically empty and the staff uninterested at best. Rooms small, plain, tv not working, safe not working. Feels like a package kind of place, with no charm or character, an anathema to us as independant travellers. A 10 minute walk from town, longer to the beach. I felt unsafe here,... More

My husband and I stayed here the 1st week of September, 2006. It was a lovely place to stay. We found the staff very pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. They helped us arrange a boat trip to the Aeolian islands and even recommended the better company to use (there are 2 who have boat trips from Tropea). There is a free... More

The hotel is in a charming garden. The room was small but very clean, comfortable, the water hot and the towels fluffy. Nice breakfast. A short jaunt to town. One thing to be aware of, however, is if you have any specific needs for early morning or late evening such as taxis or tours, make arrangement ahead of time. No... More
