Hermitage Hotel

Reviewed September 26, 2009

We picked this hotel based on other reviews but did find it a little isolated when it came to eating out. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the sea, but all we found there was a pizzeria which was disappointing. We later discovered there's a very friendly nearby trattoria called (I think) Trattoria Anders (the hotel staff know it) which serves good food and specialises in fish.

The hotel has an institutional feel to it (I could believe it was once a school as another reviewer mentioned) but is clean and spacious. Breakfast was good, and there is free off-street parking. All in all not a bad bet but I don't think I'd go back.

Hotel located in a quiet location in the east of the city in a residential area that appeared safe. We arrived by taxi from the Brignole station for about 10 Euros. There are frequent buses (approximately every 15 minutes during week days, although the frequency is decreased in early morning and in the evening) that run from near the station to a stop about 100metres or so downhill from the hotel and another busline runs from another 100 metres or so further down the hill to the railway station's bus stop (check with hotel reception by email for the bus numbers prior to arriving if you are considering this option).

It is a good 15-20 minute walk (without luggage) downhill into the city centre from the hotel.

Helpful Reception staff (recommened a great Gelateria - see below).

Clean room with a good shower although small shower cubicle.

Basic breakfast (cereal, yoghurts, bread / toast, breakfast beverages).

The hotel room was quiet except for noise from the corridor (laminated flooring) and the lift (even though we were in the furthest room from the lift).

The hotel has a nice lounge area containing a large screen plasma tv, comfortable looking sofas and a pool table.

I highly recommend the gelateria (Cafe Italia) which was recommended by the hotel reception staff, which serves unusual flavours of gelati, such a violet, as well as more traditional flavours. To get there, walk down the hill from the hotel until you reach the coastal road (about 200metres) then turn left and after approximately 500metres on the left is Cafe Italia. Enjoy!

Clean well functioning hotel in a very quiet neigbourhood. Within walking distance to restaurants etc. on the water front. Enjoyed the old style building. Was told it was actually a school in the old days. Spacious and very clean rooms and bathrooms. I have been staying in this hotel 4-5 times within the last year when travelling on business, and the only thing I missed was being able to go on-line. Not even the reception area has a computer available for guests.
