“NICE VIEW”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

If you book a room with a balcony you will have a lovely view of the ocean across the narrow street. The owners were warm and welcoming, the breakfast basic but good, and the room just fine. It is not fancy but suited our needs for a one-night stay. We would stay again if we are ever in the area. A drive up into the old village of Falerna was a treat for us travelers from the USA. I think you would really like this place if you want to spend time on the beach.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

We had the pleasure of dining at the Lion's Hotel Restaurant. The restaurant was recommended to us by some residents of Falerna during a recent stay at Falerna . The presentation of our dinners was excellent and the food was very well prepared. Overall it was a very pleasureable dining experience at a reasonable price. We highly recommend the restaurant whether you stay at the hotel or not. We did not stay at the hotel since we rented an apartment in the old town of Falerna however we would definately consider staying at the hotel in the future.

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 !!!
