We expected a balcony as was mentioned. Balcony was only 10 centimetres. Parking was full and we had to park 800 metres away from hotel. Rooms are great and spacious. Good bathroom. Location is good near harbour and many restaurants.

We stayed 3 nights at La Vecchia Fonte in a 5th floor room at the front (harbour view). We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. The hotel is in a great location; shops, bars, restaurants, market and the harbour all on the doorstep. Our room was large, clean with a lovely view and we didn't have any... More

We stayed for two nights. Our room was spacious and clean. We had a view of the harbor. We did have to look past a good-sized parking lot to see the boats. The staff was nice and breakfast was good. The only downside was noise. One night the neighboring restaurant had live music from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Not... More

Breakfast had good variety but room was to dark. night was noisy because of outside music concert and market. You could also hear the neighbours snorring because of thin walls. Parking infront of hotel €11 or in the... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks and it was so beautiful! The hotel is very traditional which is nice as you get a taste of Italy. The staff are very friendly and helpful as they try their best to speak English. The continental breakfast was lovely! The beach isn't far away either, about a 10 minute walk and it's a... More

We stayed for a week mid July, in a room facing the front. We had no problems with the noise from the night market, in fact when you shut the windows, with the air con on, which by the way was a must and very proficient, you could not hear any thing. All the staff we came in contact with,... More
