We stayed here for 2 nights on a surprise birthday road-trip along the coasts of France and Italy. Albenga itself is nothing to write home about particularly but the old town is nice for a wander for a couple of hours. The hotel itself is on the outskirts of town, right on the beach. The hotel is simple and feels...

We were not staying in the hotel, but at the beach-bar "Onda" for many times. We had some snacks, beer and longdrinks. For Italian measures, the drinks are expencive (7€ for a Cuba Libre), but you pay for the excellent ambiente directly on the sea. Sometimes, the staff was kind of overwhelmed with complex drinks or large orders. Some of...

Albenga is really not worth visiting, it is an ugly town, that once might have been nice. Hotel is not far from the centrum of the cit, however, since there is train railing on one side and you have to pass abondent buildings, I as women was afraid to walk even during the day, because of the people hanging around...

The residence is directly on the beach with a very nice outside pool and a private parking. Each studio has his own big balcony facing the sea a nd the "Gallinara"so you'll can enjoy unforgettable sunsets just outside your room. Buffet breakfast is very good but you have to find some discounted price cause their pricelist is in my opinion,...

Big studio with many comforts and daily cleaning, all with a breathtaking seaview ( most of them on "Gallinara Island"). Perfect for a short break far from the city life, directly on the secluded private beach and with a very nice outdoor pool directly on the beach. Good breakfast, but pretty expensive restaurant.

We've stayed in this hotel in July, 2009. The weather was amazing, so we enjoyed our stay very much, as long as we relaxed on a beach. The view is absolutely romantic and hotel is direct on beach. Location is very good if you want to enjoy beach and sun, but not very good if you want to explore surroundings...

We only stayed 1 night as a stopover on our way to Florence. The rooms were very spacious but very basic. They could use some renovation. Tip: The triple room can easily sleep 6 and the double 4. The best part was waking up to the view from the balcony. The rooms were a bit overpriced compared to comparable 3...

Hotel has fantastic view of beach and great pool, but the cheaper rooms are drab having not been touched since the fifties. Parking costs extra as does use of the kitchen (€30) which is poorly equipped. Located in scrub-lands outside of town, it's a 15 minute walk to the medieval old town. If you're just looking to lie on the...
