“Majestic views and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

San Marino is incredibly beautiful without a doubt, and Hotel Bellavista highlights its breathtaking beauty. Set in the center (read, top) of the old town, the hotel boasts unbeatable views of San Marino and surrounding Italy. We stayed overnight here and also enjoyed lunch outside when we arrived. The food was very good, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. A couple of cautions about Bellavista: first, if you have a car, know that it is basically impossible to drive directly to the hotel. You need to park just outside of the old town and walk to the hotel (up a pretty steep hill) -- then, they will give you a parking pass at a discount and direct you to overnight parking. I REALLY wish we had known this before we arrived because finding it out on the fly was very stressful. Second, the rooms are very basic and not very convenient -- as many reviewers have indicated, the hotel has steep stairs and no elevator. For one night in San Marino, you cannot beat the location and the majestic views -- just do a bit of planning ahead of time!

The hotel's location is exceptional. It is in the very center of the old upper town. In our room we had two windows which allowed us to have about 270-degree view of Italy surrounding San Marino.
Otherwise, the comfort was very basic. We had a shared toilet next to us, and we heard people flushing all the night. The room is quite small, and our bathroom was exceptionally small. They have no elevator, and it was quite a pain to bring all the bags upstairs.
They have quite a nice restaurant downstairs.
Despite some lack of comfort, it is a perfect solution for a one-night stay in San Marino (and you will hardly need more than one night).

We were visiting San Marino and unfortunately it was a cold, wet and windy day. During one of the downpours we stopped into this restaurant (which I now realize is connected to a hotel) to get something to eat and to dry off. Service was very good, prompt and courteous. The pizza and wine we ordered were both very good. Atmosphere was very quaint. We would return to this restaurant again, even if we didn't have to use it as an escape from the weather.

This hotel was recommended by San Marino tourist information and was so glad to have been signposted here. Friendly staff with the room having a nice bedroom and bathroom. Great views out of the windows from nearly the peak of the mountain. Plenty of hot water; a great breakfast and the evening meal was good too. No parking but this is available not too far away and the hotel can offer a 50% discount. Very close to the cable car station. Plenty of shopping and eateries close by, as well as the San Marino historical attractions.
