“Excellent family run hotel”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This was an excellent family run hotel. Our 4th floor room with balcony overlooked the sea . The room was spacious and clean. Mini bar prices were cheap unlike many other hotels. Good free WIFI reception. Lunch and breakfast was great. Owner gave us a lift to my uncle's home. Could not ask for anything more. Will definately return.

I was in Italy on a business trip and Hotel Lion's was highly recommended. I stayed there 3 nights, the food was excellent the rooms were clean with a beautiful water view balcony. The staff was very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. I highly recommend the hotel ans will be returning soon.

friendly hotel across road from beach with on site parking
. I was having problem with internet and they called a technician to come and solve the problem right away.
We had a room overlooking the ocean . Breakfast was typically italian with a little too many sweets. All types of coffees was freshly made for clients.. Would definately stay here again.

Looking for a basic place for an overnight stay before checking into our rental villa, we were won over by earlier positive reviews. Not only were we not disappointed, we were welcomed and allowed to relax. We arrived late, after a six-hour drive from Rome and were touched that the owner was perfectly happy to accommodate our teenagers' need for a swim before we were served a very late and delicious meal. We were never rushed.

In the morning, again we were not hurried, despite being a bit late checking out. We then discovered that five sun-loungers were waiting for us on the beach. The staff provided send us armed with croissants for the kids who were not interested in wasting beach-time on breakfast. We had coffee on the terrace. The owner and his staff were lovely without being intrusive so we had a great time. Definitely recommend it. A great place to start the holiday.

We stayed 4 nights over a 4 week period and each visit we were very happy with the staff and rooms. The hotel has on site parking, beautiful views of the water, beach access with lounges etc., and a pool. The price of the rooms is excellent. Our beds comfortable and any request met with a smile. I know Italians have coffee and a sweet for breakfast but international visitors need more....some fresh bread, cheese an egg even would have made our stays perfect!

Room Tip: We had 6 different rooms, all good with lovely balcony looking at the sea.

Gentilissima lolly61, Thank you very much......,
per la splendida descrizione di quanto di buono offre il ns hotel.
Sarebbe bastata una sua semplice richiesta e non avremmo avuto difficoltà a servirle quanto da lei desiderato. Sicuramente la prossima volta che sarà nostra graditissima ospite, troverà sul buffet anche le uova.
Grazie ancora e arrivederci a presto !!!

I took five minutes of my time to write this review; usually I don't do that, but for this place I had to do an exception. I'm back in NY for two days now, and I already miss Falerna and this beautiful hotel. My wife and my two kids (6 and 9) felt blessed during our ten days vacation. The hotel is very clean, the staff is nice and friendly, the views are breath taking. Realy nothing else to ask!
Mario made us feel like home, and even better! We definitely be back next year!
Thanks for everything,

Robert and his family

After only 15 minutes of having sent an email to check availability we were sent a full email of the hotels availability, services and respective prices!

Needless to say, we were impressed by this and along with the prices we were quoted we couldn't say no! We were greeted at the main reception by the very friendly Mario Bartelotto (general manager we guessed) and he gave us the entire rundown on Falerna and Falerna Marina. This city, although we visited in the sleepier months of the year did not disappoint. we had spectacular views of the ocean, the town was charming and the people were friendly, we also were given a free car spot! There isn't actually much 'to do' here, but if you want to witness authentic italian culture and food and just relax, this is perfect!

Mario even helped us find a historian who gave us copies of our great grandparents birth, marriage, death and communion certificates, along with travel documents from when our grandparents emigrated to AUS.

Overall we had a great experience with this hotel and its staff!
