5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I stayed there in Byron on May 8-10, it was two weeks away from the beginning of the season. The place is really nice, staff is perfect, all you need is there. You can take a bicycle for free, there is a vast parking, pool, the sea is just second away from hotel, and you can see it easily from your room. The rooms themselves are a bit modest, but still very convenient. I had one on the 1st floor with shower. And the only minus was that if you have a sea view the main road is 10 m away from you, so somebody could have troubles with sleep... But anyway, it's a great hotel

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms, I believe

Warm, friendly and comfortable - great for a short break. As mentioned in other reviews the location is rather noisy but very well located for town and beaches. Excellent and caring staff who are keen to make their home your home. Worth a visit - you will not be disappointed !

Room Tip: Best rooms for accommodation overlook the road. Think about that before you book.

Unfortunately this hotel is a big disappointment.
It is close to the beach, but located on the most busy road and squeezed in between another road.
Only the worse part of the hotel has been renovated : the pictures you see on the website are only the few renovated rooms but, beware, these rooms ALL have a huge inconvenient: either they have NO lateral windows, either a door looking upon the parking lot, either a balcony but that is sooooo loud and dark that you cannot open the window and while these are closed, you will wake up at 4am because of the heavy traffic. The few peaceful rooms are very old and not attractive at all.

Room Tip: What you see on the internet is not what you get.

Unfortunately Hotel Byron was booked for part of my stay in Forte dei Marmi. I had the unfortunate experience of having to stay in what was touted as a five star luxury hotel several blocks away. First hand experience allows me to share with you, that Hotel Byron IS by FAR the best hotel in Forte. Shop no more. The beautiful decor, the CLEANLINESS, the MODERN touches with old Italian charm make one feel as though he/she is indeed in a lap of luxury. The hotel attracts the chic, sexy, hip, stylish crowd of this "Hamptons in Italy" neighborhood and the concierge was extremely helpful in guiding us to the best restaurants and nightlife that the area has to offer. I loved the "boutique" feel of the hotel, with its sleek pool and marble topped mini ping pong table. I have traveled the world and fully understand the difference between USA 5 star hotels and Europe's 5 star hotels. Trust me, this place is a gem. Here are three other hotels that exemplify my taste and standards. If you're not a fan of fabulous, then stay someplace else. :)
