“A Four Star Italian Cappucino Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Forte Dei Marmi is an upmarket beach resort that has lately been infiltrated by the rich Russian oligarchs and the high class shops of Prada, Miu Miu, Gucci etc reflect this in the range of shops that display their wares for sale on the main high street which is only a short walk from the beautifully manicured beaches with their deck chairs, sun shades and beach changing hits. August and weekends is when Forte is busiest and the Italians love nothing better than promenading down the high street in their finery.

The hotel is situated on a small side road about a 10 minute walk to the centre of town and is owned by two ladies who have tastefully decorated the hotel throughout in the colours of coffee and cream. Added touches are shell tassels on the curtain cords and parchment lampshades. Even the reception ladies are clothed in the same coffee and cream colours made from the curtain material.

This is a 4 star hotel charging 5 star prices. Forte has always been expensive and this hotel is no exception, but you do get excellent service, great breakfasts and all the comforts of a 5 star establishment.

The rooms are on the small side, most with balconies that have a table and 2 chairs to relax on. There are safes in the rooms although the one in room 24 is so small you could not even fit an
i- pad into it. The barhrooms are also small but have all the accessories such a slippers and bathrobes and a good selection of quality creams and gels. Towels are changed twice a day and there is also a turn down facitlity.

The breakfast area is comfortable under a fabric awning and is open to the pretty gardens. Freshly squeezed orange juice and home made jams can accopany a cooked breakfast if required.

A pretty swimming pool and comfortable sun loungers are surrounded by the 2 person four poster beds which are on the surrounding grass areas make the pool a pleasant and relaxing environment. We were unlucky as there was some building work going on nearby and the sound of drilling and road drills disturbed the peace and solitude of the pool.

The hotel does not have its own private beaches but you can go on the a couple of beaches that the hitel have an agreement with subject to paying their charges. The whole area of Forte Dei Marmi is flat and perfect for cycling and bicycles are available from the hotel and are sometimes charged for by the hotel, but be careful and the front brakes on mine did not work and some have o lights for nighttime riding.

If you want some great food and more individual shops, take a 10 minute drive to Pietrasanta where you will find art galleries and excellent restaurants at prices that are much more acceptable to the pocket.

All in all and excellent hotel, but you have to pay the high price to get it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the pool side

My husband, myself and our baby have just returned from a 10 night stay at this perfect, charming and lovely hotel. We had the best time. The hotel is very quaint, beautiful and v comfortable. The staff and service was excellent, couldn't fault it at all. They were all so helpful, happy, friendly, professional and charming. They were all so accommodating especially with my baby needs... Nothing was too much trouble and they couldn't do enough.
Lovely breakfast with beautiful gardens. The swimming pool is very relaxing, apart from the sun beds which are not the most comfortable (that's my only complaint)....
The little touches they did were lovely I.e. tea and cake at 5, refreshments at 7 and late night cup of tea..... It added to the excellence of the hotel.
5-10 min walk to the centre of town and 5 mins to the beach.perfect place to stay.
We will definitely book again next year and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to everyone...

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here.
We found it even better than the first time, with attentive and very
friendly staff who genuinely cannot do enough to make your stay with
them memorable and comfortable.

Room Tip: Book early as rooms get booked from one year to another by regular visitors.

My wife & I have just returned from a week's holiday in the most charming, delightful hotel; where all the staff had permanent smiles and couldn't have been more helpful.
Yes we are booked again for next year.

we spent one week at hotel villa roma imperiale from june18th till june25th 2012. We had a fantastic time. Everthing in the hotel was superb.Very friendly and professional staff, excellent breakfast, beautiful garden and swimming-pool.We had a classic room which wasn't very big but luxurious, with balcony and a small but complete bathroom. The atmosphere is cosy , chic, without being too posh. hotel is very well located to the beach and center of forte.Bike rental is a big plus because the region is very beautiful (Pietrasanta ...). Villa roma imperiale is a ****s hotel with ***** comfort and service. Many guests are guests who already have come several times to the hotel .When we are coming back to forte dei marmi , we surely will stay again in the villa roma imperiale. It's a real dream staying here!!!!

Room Tip: classic rooms are not big but luxurious( ok for us ); if you want a bigger room , choose a romantic...

Forte dei Marmi is very much loved by the italians, but also by the tourists. A small town at the seaside in the region of the hippest Marmara Marble. Hotel VILLA Imperiale is like a home away, cosy and - peaceful ! that is a true luxury in a touristy neighborhood. Rooms are clean, simple, not very big, but it's a real home feeling where everyone will find a place of his own - 2 living rooms, 2 terrasses, the swimmingpool, the garden lounge... Pictures on the website are giving a good idea of the house. The friendly staff is just perfect and will assist you with greatest care. Probably the nicest place in town.

Dear Madame,
thank you so much for your great comment.
"Home away" is the most beautiful compliment we could receive.
It's true, Forte dei Marmi is very much loved by the Italians but, in the last years, it's becoming more and more a destination chosen by people from other Countries .. for its tranquillity, for the beautiful beach surrounded by the Apuan Alps and for its delicious restaurants.
We hope you will visit us again in the future.
Thank you very much,
Elena Maestrelli e Beatrice Grassi

My wife and I stayed at Villa Roma for a week in May and can highly recommend a stay there. The rooms are small but luxurious, staff is friendly and very professional, food is high-end. The whole atmosphere of the Villa is one of luxury, without being tacky. It is what I would regard as a classy, high-end boutique hotel. Happy to come back!
