“No Frills Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed at the Florenza Residence for a week in August. Unfortunately it was high season and we paid around €200 per night for a studio apartment. Our accommodation essentially consisted of one room with a tall ceiling which had a mezzanine space above with a double bed. There were absolutely no frills: no breakfast, no toiletries, no wi fi, no flat-screen tv, no essentials in the kitchen, or basic things in the fridge (water etc) when we arrived. The decor is rather dated and the furniture worn; the dark green colour scheme is a little gloomy. There is very little information about the apartment or the surrounding amenities in the accommodation and, apart from taking our passports, the guy who checked us in offered us no details or even asked if we needed anything. We had to enquire how the safe worked (the keypad is redundant and a key is provided instead) and how umbrellas/chairs on the beach are allotted (you need to register for one and are given a number for the entire stay). Our studio did not have a balcony and it was difficult to get towels (the Residence does not provide beach towels) and swimming gear dry. All the beds were extremely uncomfortable and had narrow mattresses. It was, however, relatively clean and it was serviced on a daily basis. The other thing to remember about Florenza Residence is that you need to have almost professional athlete fitness to negotiate the steep cliff on which it is located in the old part of Sperlonga (our apartment was also on the fourth floor of an old building with a narrow staircase). Sperlonga itself, however, is wonderfully scenic and there were stunning views of the modern town and the north beach from the room. It is a perfect town for a family holiday. Final analysis: the Florenza Residence is just about a step up from a youth hostel and not worth the money we paid for it.

Room Tip: Try for a larger space with a balcony if one can be had for a decent price

The view from our room was absolutely fantastic. I will be going back here and will more than likely book this hotel again. You have to hike up a small hill, but it works a being in between the city above and the beach below.

Sperlonga was a surprising spot on the Lazio coast to spend a week of late summer sun! Florenza Residence has a few great appartments with seaside balcony's to watch the sun set in the Mediterranean. Within walking distance of private beach and all the restaurants in the medieval centre.

Stayed September 2012
