“A hidden jewel in Calabria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2011

My wife and I traveled to Calabria to visit her family's ancestral home of Falerna last month.
We had no idea what we would encounter in this quieter and more rural province of Italy. What a wonderful surprise to find the Lion's Hotel, which was home to smiling faces and helping hands. This Hotel in the absolute quintessence of "Euro-class". It is immaculately clean, and absolutely comfortable and inviting. The common areas are lovely, the restaurant is excellent, the porches and grounds are relaxing...I could go on and on. What really sets the tone at this property is the pride that the Barletta family takes in seeing to its daily operation. Mr. and Mrs. Barletta built this Hotel about 10 years ago and have not overlooked any detail. The staff are wonderful and it truly feels like a family establishment in the very best sense.
I would enthusiastically recommend the "Lion's" to any traveler. We look forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: our 4th floor room looked out onto the ocean and was absolutely lovely
