“Beware!”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

I unfortunately, like my fellow travellers, had no choice in being deposited in this sad, run-down hotel "in" Urbino. Please know "in Urbino" is a euphemism as it is a bus ride away. I was travelling with 4 British friends within a larger group for a total of 40. Let me start with the positives of which there are two-the views are lovely and the staff, few in number, were hard working-that's it. The first thing that struck me as we located our rooms was the odor of disinfectant. The rooms were small and dark, mine had no air-conditioning and a 10-12 inch television-vintage 1952 I think-granted I do not travel to Italy for the TV but it is an amenity nevertheless. The beds, in every room, are nothing more than "camper-cots with springs"-either separated for twin or pushed together for doubles-they are not proper beds with mattress, box-spring, etc. The shower curtain in my bathroom was darkened, on the bottom, with mold and mildew; towels were rationed on a one-for-one basis. One of my friends was assigned a room with an odor, most foul-it clearly was the bathroom and, more specifically, the bidet-now IF anyone had inspected the room BEFORE we arrived, this would have been apparent. She was reassigned to the HANDICAPPED room-certainly not what she wanted or paid for. The dining room was large, but cheerless with insufficient staff to serve a group as large as ours. The food was adequate and to say that for the region of LE MARCHE where the food should be excellent is NOT a compliment; we swore that many of the vegetables served were "tinned" and not fresh Also please know that the swimming pool, although adjacent to the hotel, is a PUBLIC pool-the hotel does not comment but leaves it to be assumed that it is theirs. .To have stayed in this hotel for 4 of our 8 days in LE MARCHE was depressing; I cannot imagine anyone choosing this place voluntarily. Make no mistake that the company I used will be receiving additional commentary on their thoroughly unacceptable choice,
