“a nice experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

hotel Byron , is an old but very authentic house . very well located . infrontof the beach and 5 minute walk from the town .it offers a combination of the old Italian villa and the modern fuctiontoinal hotel, nice garden , large outdoor pool, very friendly staff.
The beach infront , is a very nice beach , golden sand , about 100 meters width. you have to rent your seat and umbrella daily and it is worth it if you are a fan of the sea and beach.
the only thing i did not like in the hotel is the bed , bed sheets and pillows. the matress is harder than I am used to , also the pillows and the linen is a bit rough in texture.
Aver all experince was great and memeroble

I stayed with my husband for four nights in this hotel. It badly needs refurbishment. The AC is weak thus not effective on a hot day, the Internet was erratic at best and forever asking us to relog-in.
The toiletries in the bathroom looked like what a budget hotel would provide with a miniature box of rough tissue paper. I had to laugh at the audacity of the management to think this is what they think guests who pay top rates deserves.
I asked for an ironing board and iron and was informed I can send my clothes for pressing or go to the staff/stock room to iron them myself.
Breakfast was adequate but not what you would expect from a hotel that is claiming to be a top hotel. The cheeses obviously came from the local supermarket as I saw the label stuck on one of them.
What a shame, this hotel has great potential but needs a lot of work.
However, the staff were friendly and helpful which made our stay very pleasant.

When I stayed at this Hotel in 2008 the quality of the room I stayed in was far superior to the room on this trip. My room this trip was located on the 1st floor, facing the Main Beach Road. It is extremely poorly insulated with the result that it was very noisy. This is not what one expects for 5 star prices!!
Unlike "Ozijoe", (who I happen to know) who had stayed at this Hotel 1 month earlier I was generally happy with the the staff's attitude and service. I also thought the breakfasts were quite good although when I ordered eggs the one day they took a long time to arrive and the waiter involved was not too fussed.
I thought generally the food and service at La Magnolia Restaurant was very good and the wine by the glass selection was also pretty good.
In summary the main issue that disappointed me was my room. Little things make a difference and they do not even provide guests with a normal box of tissues in their bathrooms.
I wouldn't recommend or be rushing to return to the Byron Hotel. There has to be a better value for money luxury accommodation proposition in Forte Dei Marmi

Room Tip: Do not choose an Ocean facing room on the main beach road unless of course you don't mind plent...

As previously reviewed the Byron is a well managed, very friendly and centrally located hotel - rooms away from the road are to be recommended (they are quieter) and enjoy the poolside dinner (BBQ excellent, soufflé historic !). The key feature of the Byron is the staff - they respect their guests and cannot do enough to help. Other properties may be more opulent, more modern or even better appointed - but for a brief stay, this place takes a lot of beating.

The hotels in forte dei marmi are pretty small, quite old and basic. Byron is definitely one of the best, only just accross the road to the sandy beach (huge and great sand) and 5 minutes walk to the centre. Definitely one of the nicest hotels and the best location and very good food. The reception also gives very good advice on good restaurants in the area.

Paid for a suite and they gave me the smallest room for one of the highest rates and the AC didnt even work. You can here people showering above you and its very old. This is not even a 3 star hotel for the money you could go to a much better hotel than this.

We had a wonderful stay at the Byron hotel. European luxury at its best. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The front desk was extremely helpful and lovely. The breakfast was the best I've had! A bit of an extrvegance but well worth it!
