Holiday Hotel
Ranked #30 of 55 Hotels in Fiuggi
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Despite initial worries about the hotel set up (ie 2 single beds, bathroom door problem), we had a lovely stay here and the staff were both friendly and accommodating. We too travelled with Leger. The hotel itself is simple, but each day we awoke to the most amazing view... a wonderful hillside, clad in bright green trees and bushes. It must have on of the best views in Fiuggi, a sweet and quaint town.
The breakfast was simple but fine, and we ate out nearly every evening, so I am unable to comment on the other food; certainly the bar gave generous slugs of spirits at a reasonable price.
Our room was spic and span when we returned each day, and our mock-up double bed kept as true as we made it, with clean linen. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: If you have the choice, ask for a balcony.

Just got back from a Leger Holiday. First thing to remember is that this coach holiday covers over 3,000 miles. We were unable to fly for health reasons so this holiday seemed like the best way to see Italy. This was our first leger holiday. Our two drivers were excellent and so was the Silver Service on the coach - you are never short of drinks, snacks and entertainment. However we were disappointed with the leg room, on the coach and as this holiday consists of 4 days travelling (overnight through Europe) anyone over 6' tall will find the long hours of driving uncomfortable. having read reports of Hotel Holiday we werent expecting too much and it certainly lived up to previous reports. It is up in the hills about 2 hours from Rome - there was very little to do in the evening and we struggled to find any decent restaurants in the town. The evening meal in the restaurant is 18 euros each with very little if any choice - the portions are poor and dessert was ALWAYS a bowl of ice cream. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room (common in Italy) Breakfast was self-service and the dining room would not open until an hour before the daily coach departure. We had a large leger group and as the group would crowd around the one toaster for 40 people the queues were as long as the Vatican. Group members took to taking away a selection of croissants and cakes to eat on the coach. The hotel said this had to stop or we would all be charged 20 euros each. The cakes and croissants didnt appear again that week!!!
Leger organises excellent excursions but we discovered that many were "optional" that is a hefty euro charge to pay on the journey down to Italy. To be fair Leger send out an excursion form a week before you depart so we knew we had to find an extra 284 euros. You do not have to do the "optional guide tours" but unless you have a magic wand the queues into the Colesseum and Vatican are extremely long. with the guide you are fast-tracked into these areas. The Colesseum and walking tour of Rome was cut short because it took 3 hours to get into Rome (traffic) but you do get another day later in the week. The Vatican was an absolute circus. Here we were in one of the holiest places on the planet and we shared our Sistene Chapel experience with over 500 people sandwiched in like sardines. St Peter's Basilica was more spacious but still very very busy.
The Pompeii tour again was rushed but the excellent guide certainly made up for it. Leger have a habit of "organising" a lunch costing 12-14 euros which is difficult to back out of. These lunches take up about 90 mins.
We also had a lot of early starts. The Sorrento day we had to be up for 5.30 breakfast leaving at 6.15 you could either stay in Sorrento all day or take ferry to Capri. most did this and although it was the most expensive optional tour - the Capri experience was not one to be missed. The most disappointing excursion is Frascati and Pope's Palace on the last day. Nothing to do in Frascati - no wine tasting as we expected. One to stay behind in Fiuggi and rest up before the mammoth drive home.
To sum up Leger offer excellent value for money , very structured but an ideal way to see Europe if you are not a confident traveller. Overnight travel is not for the faint-hearted - our large group did fantastically well but there can be problems - ladies always queueing at the toilets!!!!
On to the last point........Toilets...... very few public toilets in Cities. Many not improved since Roman Times - the ones at Sorrento ferry were the worst any of us had seen in our lifetime.
We would do it again but differently.

Room Tip: The rooms are not too bad - clean and spacious. The problems are with the restaurant.

With Leger, as other reviewers. They covered all the points pretty accurately. Owner works very hard and tries to give good service, but without much other help, it would seem. Breakfast was rather dismal but there is a toaster now! And fresh fruit appeared after our first day. My room not too clean and not too sure about the bedlinen, but too tired to complain that first night. Nice place but pretty far from Rome, Pompei and coast. Trips proved pretty gruelling with long journeys and early starts but good opportunity to see lots of places in a short time at low cost.
Not sure I'd bother to return.

I stayed at hotel holiday with leger group. This hotel is better than most hotels we stayed with. It says when your given info about your hotel that you may need take your own towel because the towels may be smaller than usual. But there is no need the towels are a great size. Only little problem was the bath which kind has a step in it and if you have a shower the water may go every where due to no shower curtain. The rooms itself are clean and tidy, there is a tv and closet. We wasnt expecting much so was better than expected. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is what you make of it.
The hotel is in a lovely locaction not in the centre of town and not to far out. The little town of Fiuggi is lovely there is many shops and few places to eat. You may see the locals carrying around flasks, mugs and cups and that is because in the park there is a fountain which they believe has healing qualities, so they keep stocked up on the fountain water to drink.
I personally would love to go back to Fiuggi it is a great base for going to Rome, serrento and pompie and this little town is beautiful. The hotel itself is a great base and has some lovely views and its great place if you want some peace and quiet.

Like others that have reviewed this hotel we arrived as part of a Leger group and we were the only occupants of the hotel. Warning for people with mobility issues the location is at the bottom of the hill and all restaurants/bars are up hill from this hotel. The walls are painfully thin not only could we hear conversations next door we could hear the gentleman opposite snoring. Breakfast was so-so could do with 1) a hotplate to keep the water/coffee hot (which were in stainless steel kettles) and also 2) a toaster. Breakfast was continental type. Our room did not have a bath. We took a travel kettle and the only place we could plug it in (we took an adapter) was on the bed - others in our group did likewise. Hotel has the feel of a lack of investment. Bar was fine as was the lounge

Room Tip: All roooms have shutters - views are of rolling countryside

Went on a Leger Holiday, the Hotel made a very good centre to go to Rome. Serrento and Pompie, the rooms are basic, with beds and bathroom utility, a well run family hotel, with an excellent breakfast, if not much variety and an evening meal, with which the soup (starter) and ice-cream (dessert) was excellent.
The hotel was five to ten minutes from the centre of town, where you could go if you didn't want to eat in.
The only problem we had was sleeping in the heat of the room

This hotel is a family run hotel and it has a pleasant friendly atmosphere. It sits in a very scenic location. You are surrounded by beautiful hills. The room I had was very clean and more than adequate. The bathroom is large with a shower as well as a bath. There is not air conditioning but you can get a fan and there were plenty. The food is home made and reasonable in price. It was quiet but not that far from the town a 10-15 minute walk. I would recommend this hotel for an idyllic peaceful holiday. It has a 3 star rating and certainly deserves it
