“punches weigh above its 3 stars weight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great location for the centre of Forte and sea front; rooms [some slightly on the small side] are compensated by the overall cleanliness, quality touches, tasteful presentation with understated and restrained décor which is evident throughout the hotel. Two simply furnished and beautifully brick vaulted sitting rooms provide a tranquil setting for reading the provided and eclectic upmarket literature.
Everything in this hotel has been restored faithfully and the marriage of contemporary and historic has been thoughtfully blended
This hotel feels more like a family villa experience rather than a hotel one, and all the better for it.
The omnipresent owners, who obviously run a very tight ship ensure guests are well looked after. Breakfast is a simple but delicious self serve buffet providing a good selection of fresh and local produce including the best eggs I have ever tasted, coffee/tea etc. is served by attentive and friendly staff. The airy dining area looks out onto the small well-tended garden is delightful and meals can be taken al fresco under cover on the terrace. I returned long after evening dinner had finished on two occasions and on wandering into an empty dining room was given a seat and despite my protestations a meal was rustled up in the kitchen by the excellent chef who served me with local dishes including wild rabbit and vegetables. Drinks at the bar did not disappoint either, high end and unusual brand whiskeys were served in large measure in top quality glasses, at exceptionally reasonable prices. The owners read all reviews and take them very seriously so I hope prices don't increase post review!
Don't go to this hotel excepting a chain standard or highly polished sycophantic service, you will be disappointed. However, if you want to stay in a five star villa in the guise of a three star hotel with authentic touches, wholesome professional service with a dash of originality and great value for money then you cant go far wrong here!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I don't know why it is a 3 star, bu the service and the rest is really fabulous. We had a large room with a sea view. Our room was very quiet all the time. Smiling kind staff was helping for anything. Everyone working at the hotel was smiling. The breakfast was rich, not a typical again. It was so close to the sea, we felt like it was part of the hotel. Forte dei Marmi has no hills, every road is flat. It was pleasure to see that you can go everywhere by walking. We have a car but never had to use it during our say there. Forte dei Marmi has a restaurant, but unfortunately two days before our arrival it was closed. We definitely would like to go there again.

Close to the beach, clean, very friendly, rooms are quite but very small. Nice breakfast garden. Good choice and good value dor money considering in general the prices in Forte dei Marmi. The staff is not very well informed for recomendations to eat out, but they try there best.

I have been there with a friend of mine in May/June 2011.I made a wrong reservation, but anyway they found me the solution. If they didn't have a room for us they would contact some other hotel to let us stay during the week end.Very kind personnel, really clean and stylish bed room. I will highly recommend it!

Located just outside the busiest par of Forte Dei Marmi, and close to the beach, this is a good place to stay. It is a classic building and the rooms are in a very good state, with excellent materials and furnishings, although on the small side. The same goes for the bathrooms etc - high quality but small. Bar and restaurant are good, staff friendly. There is a hot tub/whirlpool on the balcony on the first floor, the sea is just visible from there but the trees in the garden have grown so much that they shield most of the view. If you like large, USA style hotels, this is not for you. But if you like genuine Italian character, this is it.
