Nice hotel with good location and fine room. The weeks best Aperol Sprits mixed in the bar by the pool. However, the visit at the reataurant was disappointing. Combination of italian buffet and main couses was good, and the food was served quicly. Unfortunately we discovered theat the wine glasses were dirty and infomed the waiter, At this point the...

If you have not been to Grado, Italy, you are missing something special in life. After my first visit, I think I'm now up to 10 visits, as it's only a 4 hour drive from Salzburg, where I live. Of all the hotels I've tried in Grado, the Grand Hotel Astoria is the nicest. It's got probably the best location... More

Clean hotel with reference to classic style. Great meals: wide selection at buffet breakfast (probably the best we had in Italy) with full choice available from start to end + fresh espresso and tea; and very delicious dinner (again, variety and quality of starters' buffet is among the best in Italy). Very friendly, helpful and nice staff, convenient garage parking.... More

Although Grado is under construction, and you have to drive down sidewalks to find hotels (not popular with pedestrians), Grado is one of the most beautiful, secret Oasis in Italy. Trapped in the 50's and 60's, you feel the charm of the beach chairs, the umbrellas, the wonderful water, the incredible architecture, and of course some wonderful local hotels. I... More

3.5 points would be correct. Very helpful staff, rooms acceptable. I avoided meals. Looked to me like the best place in Grado, but a lot was closed in the off season. Position very convenient, and they have a covered car park.

We stayed here for five nights in early September and were very pleased. The room was large and spacious, the air conditioning was fine, as was the bathroom. A balcony gave us a rather banal view of a nearby apartment block, but with a splendid open air pool on the top floor, and a beach five minutes walk away, the... More

Great location. Very nice roof-pool with great view. Parking is at groundfloor and parking manager is very helpful. No WIFI in our room, I had to go near to the elevator middle of house to get WIFI. Fortunately was a Sofa next to the elevator.

It was like stepping back into a different time – I just waiting for lords to walk trough the swing doors. The decor of the rooms and the hotel are somewhere lost in the 30’s to 70’s but are more on the larger side. Breakfast was pretty good for an italien restaurant, just to be sure to order the coffee... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Grand Hotel Astoria was built at the beginning of the 20th century, when Grado was the Habsburgers’ and Middle European aristocracy’s Summer resort, with the name of Hotel Lido.The Hotel knew glory and smartness being the seat of the local casino. It was completely rebuilt and reopened in 1991, continuing its role of hotel with style, quality and elegance, like an island in the island, for its completeness and quality of its services.Tradition and modernity, this is the philosophy of the Grand Hotel Astoria, a 4 stars hotel located in Grado historic centre, few kilometres from the beach, exactly between the historic area with the ruins from the Roman period and the wide boulevards of the city centre, ideal for a completely relaxing seaside holiday.ITALIANOL' Hotel Astoria, splendido Hotel 4 stelle di Grado in Friuli Venezia Giulia, nasce all’inizio del 1900, quando Grado era ancora meta delle vacanze al mare degli Asburgo e della nobiltà Mitteleuropea, con la denominazione di Hotel Lido.L’albergo conobbe fasti e gloria, essendo tra l’altro, sede del locale Casinò. Ristrutturato interamente nel 1991 prosegue il suo ruolo di albergo di stile a Grado, ai vertici della qualità e dell’eleganza, che si distingue per la completezza dei servizi.Tradizione e modernità, questa è la filosofia del Grand Hotel Astoria, Albergo a 4 stelle, situato nel centro storico di Grado, a pochi metri dal mare, proprio tra il nucleo storico con i resti di epoca romana e gli ampi viali del centro, ideale per una vacanza al mare di tutto relax.Le Terme Marine del Grand Hotel Astoria sono un Centro Thalassoterapico e fisioterapico a direzione medica, dove vengono praticate cure che si avvalgono essenzialmente dei benefici terapeutici dell'acqua di mare e della fisiochinesiterapia. L'acqua marina è pompata da circa 150 metri dalla costa, ricchissima di iodio, fitoplancton e zooplancton, viene riscaldata a 30-35° ed utilizzata per i benfici trattamenti thalassoterapici con notevoli propriet� rigeneranti su tutto l'organismo.Affiancato ad esse il rinnovato reparto Wellness & Beauty, sfrutta anch'esso, ove possibile, gli apporti salutari dell'acqua di mare; di qui la trasformazione di SPA (Salus per aquam) in SPS (Salus per sale) per risaltare l'uso dell'acqua marina. ... more   less
