“Excellent and attentive staff but misleading marketing.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

We stayed seven nights at the Palazzo. As we booked it via SLH we had certain expectations. We would've left after the 1st night had it not been that we had paid for a package (not cancelleable). The staff was great and helpful and the location couldn't have been better. The entrance to the Palazzo is enchanting and cozy, very much what one sees in the images on their website. However, the breakfast was lousy and cheap, the wifi wasn't covered in all parts of the buildings, the rooms themselves were very spartan (flat screens don't cost that much anymore) and the reception of the channels very poor, bathrooms could be charming if they were updated and had some pressure in the shower. The rooms just lacked character overall and the lay out needs to be redone. One important point too, is that the mattresses were not comfortable at all. If one can't sleep well, the stay doesn't get too much more enjoyable.
Anyway, the entrance (foyer) definitely is 4 star but as for the rest it's at the most a two star hotel. We hope that the owners cherish their employees as they make up for the lack of investment into the rooms by the owners. I would not recommend this to anyone. While we were in town and did some digging, we came to the conclusion that you'll find better places to stay at for the same price or less. Definitely not SLH material.

Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming during our week stay at the hotel.

Breakfast was delicious, we were on the pool side, and the rooms were spacious and well equipped.

Nearby restaurants were great value and delicious

We enjoyed our stay in Palazzo Rimondi. The hotel is very charming and the rooms perfectly comfortable. Well located in the old city to visit the fortezza and walk in the animated streets, fine restaurants in the same street. We do recommend this hotel for everything especially the nice staff.

The pictures and reviews for this hotel are very misleading. It's not worth the money spent. We had two rooms and both had similar issues. The bathrooms are very dated and were small. The "shower" was less then 6 feet tall so if you are taller there's no hope. The beds were like sleeping on a board and the linens were well used. The rooms in general are in bad need of a renovation.

Pros:
Walking distance to shops, restaurants, beach, lighthouse, and historical site Fortezza.
The service here is super friendly and quick to please you.
Complimentary continental breakfast with everything for anyone's appetite which is from 8 am to 10 am.
Perfect sized splash pool for you to soak up the sun in OR just walk to the waveless beaches a few minute walk away.
Just around the corner is an amazing restaurant called La Rena Taverna which serves the best eggplant salad and Pasta Carbonara.




Cons: You would be a fool to see any cons in this place!

Stayed here in room 101 the first week in June and found it charming. The staff were friendly and helpful with good local knowledge . Breakfast buffet was fine and all was clean and tidy.
Our room had a mezzanine floor for the bedroom with quite steep stairs so care had to be taken especially at night. The room had a fridge, sitting area with writing desk with chairs and an oldish style tv.
The hotel is a Venetian building tucked away on a central quiet walking street so no problem with traffic noise.
The negatives -the shower was very small and our ground floor room overlooked the courtyard so no privacy if the balcony door was opened.
So to sum up it is a good place to relax and wind down.
