We only stayed at Hotel Pelirocco for one night because we had the Betty room, which is a little pricey but we absolutely loved it! Being a Betty Page and all things vintage/retro fan I adored this room in all it's leopard print glory - not tacky, but kitsch and movie star!
I loved everything! The huge floor to ceiling window is beautiful and elegant, there is a small balcony outside to catch some fresh air (or a sneaky cigarette), a great central location just off the seafront which means all the attractions are within easy walking distance.
We particularly enjoyed the bathroom, whilst it's not the most beautiful bathroom, it does have a great double spa bath which we both enjoyed with a few glasses of bubbly and candles (that we provided) there's even a cheeky peep hole cut out of the bathroom door. The little touch's in the room are great not just for fans but for anyone! There's a dressing screen to emerge from in your weekend lingerie, a beautiful Chaise lounge with fluffy pillow, a leopard vanity unit to add a touch of glamour and beautiful framed Betty photos.
The room service isn't your typical service either, instead offering durex products including toys to make your stay special and safe!
The staff really made the stay for us - we had a few drinks in the almost empty bar which has a wonderful brooding but funky atmosphere. After quicky making friends with the barman we were partying into the early hours with him and some friends that arrived - the cocktails were brilliant and very hard to resist - which by the end the lovely barman was giving to us on the house!!!
In a nut shell, i think you have to choose your room wisely here, as some rooms on the website look a little small and tacky. Others are large and opulent, it depends on your budget. But the overall atmosphere, trendy decor and friendly vibe made this a fun and unique place to stay, much better than a bland chain and certainly an experience I recommend. I am definitely returning to the Betty room in the new year.
Thanks Pelirocco! :)
