“Excellent cost:quality ratio and wonderful surroundings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We were guests of the San Nicola, together with a group. The hotel has a wonderful garden and beautiful pools, inside and outside, both with thermal water. We got to use the pools and sauna free of charge, rooms were clean though the furniture was a bit outdated - could use refurnishing - and the cuisine very tasty and plentiful. Hotel offered extra towels and robes for outside use (very reasonably charged), the staff was attentive and helpful and the director was always able to comply with any of our requests or to resolve any complaints we brought to his attention. Easy access to downtown as the city bus passes right outside the hotel grounds, and you can purchase bus tickets at the reception.....all in all, for what we paid we could not have asked for more!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We went as a group and had full board option. First of all, the same napkins we used for lunch was on the table for dinner. When the Maitre D was asked if we could change, he said we were to use the same napkins for dinner and they would be changed the next day. UNACCEPTABLE! I insisted that our napkins were to be changed and they finally changed them. My daughters napkin from lunch was totally soiled with tomato sauce and they expected her to use the same one? I even held it up to show him and he said no. Also, we wanted to exchange our wet towels from the pool to obtain dry ones for our shower and were told no by the maids? That was 2 "no"s. And to top it all off, they had 4 stars above their name displayed behind the front desk. I've been in plenty 4 star hotels and this one does not even make the star system. I would give it a negative star if I could. This hotel would not be recommended by me to anyone!

Thank you for your review. We have some clarifications to be made on what has been written by her. First of all we regret that some discomforts that she must have suffered, but surely we are talking about small compared to the many positive things that has benefited from free but did not want to describe.
Sorry, just a towel to have created many hardships.
  We apologize for this small inconvenience I should mention that we are not a 4 star but 3 star hotel, which list the hotels in the world is left to individual local governments and that you can find the differences between the various 3,4,5 star in the world.
  Regarding the issue of towels, I think you've read the back of the door of his room which is not allowed to use the equipment in the room outside, let alone use the towel in the room pool that has chlorinated water. These are simple rules in all the hotels, but often people do not remember them.
Sure to see you again as soon as possible,
Hotel Terme San Nicola

This hotel provides quite a unique holiday experience and is good value for money. The rooms are small, clean but quite dated; we didnt mind as the air conditioning was excellent and we didn't spend much time in our room. Hotel San Nicola is set in the village of Panza, quite an authentic Italian village with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops offering very reasonable prices. The hotel itself is set in fabulous grounds and has a wonderful terrace over looking the pool, a great place for relaxing and having a drink.

We chose the half-board option and this turned out to be a very good decision as the food was of a high standard, particularly the buffet for starters. On our first night the chef wheeled out a huge turkey and then carved it in front of the residents; the meat was delicious. The half board option was just a few euros extra so we would highly recommend it.

The hotel caters for mainly Germany and Italian guests with very little English spoken, fortunately we had some basic german and were able to communicate with only a few difficulties. The staff were generally fairly helpful and the service was very good and attentive.

The hotel is a 'Therme' and therefore has saunas and pools using the natural heat source of the now extinct volcano. There was no extra charge for these facilities and we enjoyed experiencing them. We would certainly return to the Hotel San Nicola.
