“Everything needed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

A very good place to stay. The room is not really big, but nice, and it had a balcony, from where you can see the sea.
The stone floor is pretty cold, but I think it's for advantage in summer.
The hotel is close to the beach and center of Marina di Massa, where beach restaurants and shops can be found.
Very good breakfast with huge selection of food, which is really rear in Italy. They have fresh different cakes every day :)
I guess, there can be some problems with the parking in the high season, 'cause there is not so much space, so you'd better arrive before it's taken.
We actually didn't spend much time in the hotel during our two nights stay, because we only used it as a base for our trips, and for this purpose it was very good.

The Hotel Michela is not easily accessed by public transport - from a distance at least, but that is its only real disadvantage. It is a modern detached building, among others of similar attractive style, which put me in mind of Austrian guesthouse accommodation. Lots of trees around made it a very pleasant area.
Let's start with location: this is ideal. To get to the sea you'll need to find an entrance to a 'free beach'. For the nearest, turn right out of the gate and go to the sea front road. Turn left here and it's only a short stroll to the free beach. There's a bar which does snacks and you can sit there and enjoy the sun. There is a restaurant nearby . Walk a bit further and there's a pier for a sweeping view of the bay.
If you want shops, other bars and restaurants and a supermarket, turn left out of the gate and walk through a little copse to the next road. There, turn right and you'll soon come to bars, shops, restaurants, a supermarket and a little park. If you want to make a round trip you can turn right off this road and end up at the sea front and the pier.
The hotel itself welcoming, with a lounge and a dining room. Rooms are very modern and spotless, and mine had a large pleasant balcony. The big snag for me was that there is no lift. I find stairs difficult, so they moved me to a lower floor and took all my luggage for me. This is typical of the service there, which is helpful and pleasant. I had the impression that it was family run.

The restaurant isn't public, so guests book and choose their menu each day at breakfast. I'm very glad that I did this as the food was very good. I can't remember how much they charge for this 'half board' option, but it wasn't a lot and was very good value. You can also book lunch, but after a good breakfast you probably wouldn't bother.
There is a terrace to the restaurant but it wasn't really the weather for it when I was there.
There is plenty of outside space to sit if you just want to relax in the garden, and there is a car park.
In summary, a good location once you've got there, and a pleasant and comfortable place to stay. Elderly travellers note the lack of lift and specify first floor when you book. The stairs do have handrails.
