Having travelled several times to Italy from the United States, I have stayed in a variety of hotels varying from 6 star Villas to 2 star pensiones. When booking a 3 star hotel, it's difficult to find that few that are special in terms of what 3 stars have to offer. OK...we can honestly admit that Americans may just be a little spoiled, in terms of amenities, air conditioning, internet.etc.
Having stayed in two different 3 star hotels during the same 10 day stay, Hotel Hermitage was by far the best choice. (I won't mention the other)
The simple conveniences that make your stay easy were all there:
1. Free wifi...no daily or hourly charges...ok, we are Americans and tend to work too much.
2.REAL Air Conditioning with a thermostat! Not a poofy blower that many hotels claim to be air conditioning.
3.Meticulously clean...the cleaning crew was ready and working as soon as you left the room.
4. Al Fresco buffet breakfast with real waiters, fresh fruit, fresh cafe, cappucino, cafe americano, eggs, the works.
5. A Large POOL with plenty of towels and lounge chairs.
6.Balconies are even larger than the rooms, with lounges and bistro tables to relax.
7.One block from beach so you do not hear cars speeding by all night.
8. SERVICE!!! Very special people who actually cared about your comfort. Anna, the gentile front desk lady waited on our every need, from creating our American ice coffee, to speaking english to accomodate us.
9.Finally the wait staff and ownersElena and Lucca, took time to be sure we were comfortable...Lucca even popped me in his Porche Carrera to drive me to the open market!! Now that's service....Definitely better than any other 4 star hotel I've stayed at in the last 20 years.
OK...I guess it was all good!
