I have been to Senigallia three times now, including my most recent visit. We stayed (my sister, nephew and me) at this hotel and all I can say is WOW! I'm not a fan of big hotels because I find them too impersonal, so this hotel is perfect with its 5 (I think) floors of rooms. First, the position of the hotel is perfect. It's on a back street about 30 seconds walk from the main strip. It's extremely quiet so no disturbances whilst sleeping. All the rooms have got a balcony and sea view so every morning I saw the most beautiful sunrise. And fancy sitting on the loo watching the sea?! Very pleasant! The room was very spacious with pleanty of storage. The bathroom was a wet room and was very user friendly. The room was spotless. There's a safe in the wardrobe - you pay a €10 deposit and get that back at the end of your stay. Food - well. I put on a good half a stone there. The food is limitless! It's never ending! And it's delicious. The chefs are fantastic, and the waiters have got to be the hardest working people ever - and always with a smile and the personal touch. They really were fantastic. The dining room is lovely and you get to know your fellow guests but keep your intimacy too. You choose your meals the day before, two choices per course. There's a starter from the salad buffet, then your pasta or soup, then your main, then your pudding. They always bring round seconds and even thirds of each course. Breakfasts have the softest pastries as well as meat and ham, cerial, fruit, and yoghurt along with breakfast cake. Yum yum! And on the August bank holiday they had a FEAST with more food than I have ever seen AND a singer AND a photographer. Fantastic! Now to Stella and Nevio, the owners. More friendly and efficient people you won't find. They can both speak excellent English, they're kind, funny, and accommodating. An American couple had visited the town to find records for their grandmother who was born there. They'd been to the town hall for help but had been fobbed off. Nevio wouldn't accept that and spent around two hours making phone calls until he got results and the couple got the records they needed which made their stay even better. Nevio didn't have to do that but he did! And that sums them up. The hotel's got a fleet of bicycles which guests can use free which is SUCH a bonus. My sister did an early morning cycle and saw all sorts of lovely sights like fishermen coming in with their haul, and families in the sea AT SIX IN THE MORNING! The hotel's got a lovely night porter who is just as friendly and helpful as the day staff. This hotel really is lovely - it goes above and beyond what you would expect from a hotel. I highly recommend it.
