The room was very clean with a TV/ plenty of toiletries and towels [not fluffy] and was well lit . Short... More

The hotel has a great location, a little hidden from the main drag but still close to center. Rooms are nice and comfortable The breakfast room is adequate and seems at times a little crowded. The pool area is practical. The roof pool was not open but looks spectacular.

Grand hotel in fantastic location with lots of charm, the hotel retains the feeling of a time gone by with a few modern twists- the roof pool and wellness are great especially as we were the only people using them. Free bike rental and parking made a big diffrence. if you havent been to Grado parking can be a problem... More

The "Grand" in the name of this hotel is approved from my side: top location itself and in short distance to old part of town as well as to the beach! And in my subjective impression the guests seem to respect this flair. And I like the pool and the sun terrace on the roof deck. There are only very... More

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

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
