We stayed here in May 2012, a couple - We had a lovely stay. Room wassimple but clean - the bathroom could have done with updating but it was fine - all clean and worked. The bedroom and tv were comfortable - not glamourous but good enought for a watch of TV and a night in but all in all it was a pleasant room with a view over the gardens.. the hotel gardens are lovley and the breakfast was good. The hotel is in a nice quiet district which is a close promimity to beach - about 7 mins easy flat pleasant walk, and in lovely area next to a canal and near to a few little restaurants and cafes and deli's... The hotel rents out bikes at 7euro a day - and the bikes are great! we cycled into forte dei marmi - about 8 mins easy cycle ride - Forte dei marmi area is lovley to cycle around - flat - sunshine and makes you feel young and free again! The staff were lovley here ! they are characters and smile and are nice to us everytime we ask yet another tourist question...! free parking, and nice sitting under the trees in lovley gardens. The reception and breakfast room are modernly decorated with a nice style... Excellent value for money.. So good we are returning with 10 of us in September! Bedrooms 3 star / but overall experience there is 4star.. happy place.
