Appia Grand H, consulente marketing at Appia Grand Hotel, responded to this review, October 27, 2011
Once we have received this complaint, suddenly we were surprised by negative
notes, which appear to us to be untrue and here following we'd like to
explain why.

The Customer was a participant of a group of "budget travellers" and none of
the other participants has expressed negative opinions.

1. Bad hotel is a personal opinion because we have several groups organized
by the same travel agency and often we receive congratulations for the
service.
2. Close to the train. Behind the hotel there is the passage of the trains
leaving the station of Formia which is located at about 3 km. Room windows
are soundproofed although you may feel slightly the passage of the train.
3. Prohibition to eat in the room has been forced by the travel agency.
Customers have been informed by the tour leader
4. There is no kettle in the room because in Italy it is not commonly used.
However the hotel does not offer this service also for children safety
reasons.
5. Get dirty the towels with the makeup does not seem very fair !

We are sorry that Customer has expressed their dissatisfaction also if we
feel this complaint to be untrue. We try to always offer our best and
sometimes we can also make mistakes and we apologize for any inconvenient,
but this was not the case.

Thank you

We stayed 1 night and then moved on to a hotel across the street. The room decor was old, needed to be updated. Not too clean. The bed was uncomfortable-too soft with springs protruding. The walls were paper thin, we heard the people next door. The pool was ok as was the breakfast that was included. There is no beach access, you have to walk a ways. The stereo by the pool was blaring. This is a great hotel for singles.
