I have a hard time reviewing B and B's as I usually stay in hotels, so to be fair to Il Barone, I threw out my expectations for a hotel before reviewing it. There are several negatives to Il Barone, but since I felt I would stay there again when I traveled to to Tropes, I gave it a five;... More

Although I am quite late on the review, current reviews indicate il Barone is still a fantastic place to stay. The excellent location and superior service make this a good bet to enjoy wonderful Tropea. The staff at il Barone are wonderful, Roberto is very helpful during trip planning and arrival. It was also great to have a computer in... More

Having stayed in another B & B in Tropea 3 years ago, we were disappointed that it was not available for our stay in November. However, IL Barone proved to be a wonderful alternative. It is situated centrally in Tropea, in walking distance to all local historic sites, many restaurants, bars and shops. The B & B has been furnished... More

Il Barone has been one of the best hotel experiences in Italy. My spouse and I stayed for 8 days exploring the region. The hotel is in a very old building that Roberto has renovated and managed to retain the charm of the old with the convenience of new construction. Roberto was wonderful to deal with and helped make the... More

This is an all round exceptional B&B. It's in a very convenient location right in the middle of the old town, and the beach is only a short walk away. The rooms are stylish, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast is delicious, and served on the rooftop terrace that must have one of the best views in Tropea. Drinks and homemade appetisers... More

The breakfast was good but the aperitif was even better watching the sunset. Awesome service from Roberto and his wife! When we "overslept" they served the breakfast in our room. High quality rooms but beds are a bit hard. Great wifi. No parking nearby although possible to find free spots.

We were safe, secure, comfortable, well fed, and well cared for at Il Barone. I asked Roberto to recommend a place where I could get my hair cut, and I received one of the best cuts of my long life. Grazie, Roberto.

Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The host invited us for rooftop cocktails including a great assortment of antipasta - great city views as well. Breakfast was also served there with a huge selection including custom omlettes. It is located in the heart of Tropea with easy access to restaurants, churches and the beach below. It was... More

We loved Tropea, a beautiful, charming town, perched high on cliffs above the stunning crystal blue meditteranean sea. Roberto is truly an amazing host. He is kind, genuine and generous and will go out of his way to ensure you are relaxed, happy and enjoying your stay. Roberto and his staff are also very funny with a good sense of... More

The location is perfect and close to restaurants, cafes, the beach and the train station. The building has a charm, the rooms are very clean. The staff is very helpful and smiling. Roberto knows how to make guests happy. He suggested many things and they were great and I have to admit I miss his aperitivo every evening on the... More
