We stayed in the dependence which is a very nice and spacious apartment, including a little kitchen. Breakfast was very nice in style of a buffet. We also enjoyed dinner a lot which consisted of 4 courses. Quality was high and the personnel absolutely friendly and good-hurmored. Absolutely recommendable also for bikers as there is also a storage for bikes. Car parking is problematic but within 400 m, there is a parking area free of charge.

Excellent staff, very friendly and helpful. They helped us with car parking, getting pizza, finding supermarkets. They were also very helpful with bike hire and making suggestions for uplifts. They also had an excellent bike storage facility. Excellent views of the sea from the room and right on the beach!

If you have traveled around the northern lake region of Italy and some other popular destinations, Finale Ligure is totally different...not so much the old world charm and elegance but more a commercial/modern congested city surrounding just this charming little area where the Hotel Medusa lies on the seafront, but the seafront is totally blocked by buildings, and beach houses, not like the north where all the promenades are mostly open for strolling. We found the same in Alassio, and for this reason would never return to this area of the Riviera unfortunately. There should have been ordinances or regulations to stop all the blocking of the seaview, a shame. So this area has very little charm left to it, and the city streets were not the cleanest, nothing you would dream of for a vacation in Italy. But the review of the hotel is next... The Hotel staff is charming and they work very hard, to please everyone. Exceptional job by the front desk and excellent breakfast service.The breakfast that is included is good, except for the coffee which is all self serve out of machines, it was hard to make a good coffee. The juices were also out of the machine - so quality of coffee and juice needs improvement. The breakfast was good, exceptional cakes and cheese. It was nice that they had scrambled eggs, these were very watery, not fully cooked. A nice addition would be tomatoes at the breakfast buffet, this would give an alternative to all the sugary sweet items. The rooms are older and quite crammed in the bathroom, which was not a problem. The showers worked perfectly, and towels were nice. I was surprised on arrival to see there are no bars of soap given in the bathrooms, only a filled dispenser on the wall and the same in the shower. We luckily had plenty of soap with us. The cleaning staff does an exceptional job, rooms are kept clean. The hotel is a main attraction for families with children, a huge playroom is on the first floor. Many many young children at this hotel. The location of the hotel is prime, it backs up to the few charming medieval streets which provide a nice small area to walk to shops and a few good restaurants. The seafront across the street in front also has a few good restaurants. If you walk to the end of the little streets in back of the hotel you will find the most beautiful piazza, which has the best cafes for cocktails and aperitif. This was a great way to start the evening each day. Located just one street behind the hotel is the most beautiful church - maybe one of the most beautiful in Italy for its outside baroque style, this church is amazing. (it took 55 years to build, Basilica (Collegiate Church) of Saint John the Baptist) The construction of the basilica started in 1619 and lasted 55 years. The Temple was inaugurated in 1674. It is one of the most beautiful churches in Liguria, traditionally ascribed to Bernini, but probably planned by local architects of his school. The façade, rich in artistic emblems and stained-glass windows, is the work of Finalmarina architect Nicola Barella. It was completed in 1762. The statues of St. John the Baptist, of Saints Peter and Paul and those symbolizing Hope and Faith with their beautiful decorations are the work of Bartolomeo Bagutti.

Hello friend, Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate you liked our facility. We just suggest, for the next time, to give two different reviews (one for the city, one for the hotel) so as not to penalize our efforts with a low vote. Come back and visit us again soon! Andrea
