“Clean, Modern, Close to beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

We stayed in an attic room which was new and comfortable with great air conditioning. Ceiling sloped to the windows but it was not a problem. Hotel was close to the beach and a short walk uphill to the lovely heart of Sperlonga. Parking was free. Breakfast was large and varied by Italian standards.

I've travelled all over the world and have stayed in great hotels and hovels.... this hotel was fabulous! At eight years old it seems like it opened two weeks ago. Everything is fresh and new... very well maintained. The design and decoration is beautifully done, with quiet little spots to relax and enjoy. A full service spa... had an excellent massage too. Food well prepared and plentiful. I ate out several nights and should have just stayed at the hotel for a better meal. I want to mention several of the staff that went out of their way to make my stay memorable... Rosa, Arina, Salvatore and GianLuca! I was a solo traveler and they did so much to make me feel comfortable and at home, like looking up time schedules and recommending places to visit or dine. I called the owner over to tell him what a great hotel I thought he had.

Room Tip: Try staying in the rooms on the top floor. They might be a little smaller, but are beautifully deco...

Hotel is clean, fresh, very close to the beach, supermarket and restaurants in Sperlonga. Really nice place to stay if you would like to spend few days at the coast close to Rome.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were cleaned properly and on time (in the morning)
Breakfast was too sweet to my liking - lots o pastries, but it seems to be common in Italy. Still it was possible to find less sweet alternatives - bread, muslie and so on. It's not complain, just a comment.
If one is on vacations, why not :). Doughnuts were delilcious though...

The Hotel is nice , taking into consideration that Sperlonga is not very big . Wireless available only in the lobby . Good breakfast but more italian style with not a lot of options . The rooms were very clean and new ! It was a very pleasent stay .

Room Tip: we book the room through booking.com and we got 135E/night double room in Mid july

The Hotel Virgillio is nice and modern but staff is extremely rude. When we checked in the two women in the office behind the front desk kept looking at us and talking to each other for several mintues before one of them finally got up and handled our check-in. It was like that our entire stay. The eye contact with them practically waiting for us to walk away and when we did not they finally talked to us. The staff at breakfast was warm and always had a smile. We felt unwelcome and for a 4-star hotel that is unacceptable.

please do not go to this hotel. the staff were incredibly unhelpful and rude and we had the worst holiday of our lives. on the 2nd day of our trip we were robbed of everything - the safe was pulled from the wall and stolen along with our suitcases. the management were totally unhelpful and simply did not want to know. go to the aurora instead.
