We stayed 1 night. There is free parking in an outside car park or in a garage under the hotel. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was really nice. WiFi was a bit sluggish at times. Shower was good and bed very comfy. Breakfast was very good too. Its only about 10 minute walk into town. The only... More

Lovely location with a view of beautiful trees from the balcony. Our room was a good size. Sparse in terms of features, for example no mini fridge or welcome book with info, etc. All clean. Breakfast was great in terms of selection, including some delicious hams and cheeses. Most staff were very friendly.

Clean rooms, nice breakfast and very friendly staff! The breakfast table is good with lots to choose from (and excellent coffee!). Perfectly good. Easy to drive to the hotel and they have a parking lot for the guests. About 10 min walk to the old town (or what remains after earthquake).

My stay in this hotel was just a couple of days long. Room was clean, well furnished with a rather big bathroom and a comfortable shower. The bed was big and soft, with nice sheets. Continental breakfast is served, with a good selection of juices, cold cuts, cheese, and cereals for any taste. I will probably stay here again, next... More

My husband and I spent two weekends in this hotel in November. We also spent a weekend there in November, 2014. We chose it because it is a few blocks from where our son and his family live and it is also just a short walk up the hill to the center of town. Our rooms were clean, quiet and... More

Staff were very friendly and a good breakfast was offered. The hotel is within walking distance of the old town of L'aquila. The floor of the room was dirty and hadn't been swept for a while and the mini bar only had 1 small bottle of water in it and the fridge was dirty. Good for parking.

Hands down this is the worst hotel experience I had in 2014. I'm always travelling for work so I literally live on hotels and this place is a real dump. I booked 10 rooms for our tour group and paid 20 Euro, around 27 dollars a head for a dinner that I wouldn't give to a dog! The pasta was... More

Below average service, room furniture/decoration, cleanliness, breakfast. Parking was free and easy. Extremely over priced. It seems impossible to me that this is a four star hotel.
