“Avoid.”
Reviewed May 24, 2008

Very bad taste decoration, mostly german clients with loud children. Too far away from town center to walk. Rooms without view. When a next door guest goes to the bathroom it s so noisy you think you have been yourself. You hear about everything being done or said in the other rooms. No sound proofing at al. Depressing, especially the dining room. But than again some people seem to like what we hate, that is probably what makes human contacts so interesting.

Stayed May 2008

I am the owner of the Hotel and very disappointed to see this comment. I have invested a lot of money and energy to totally refurbish my Hotel this year and have so many clients appreciating our new design and decor both in rooms and common areas. The hotel is located in a 10.000 meters park, in a quiet area next to the beach and all rooms have balcony with view over the park or the pool, pity you did not notice this. We are not located in city center but if you like walking it is just a 15 minutes away or if you prefer you can cycle and get there in a short time. We are infact located in the most exclusive area of Forte dei Marmi called Roma Imperiale, next to the Versiliana, surrounded by beautiful villas and parks. You cannot combine quiet location with the traffic and noise of the city center, it's anyway the guest's choice. One of the aspects most appreciated of Forte dei Marmi is to cycle around the pine parks and our clients usually rent a bicycle to enjoy this area. With regards to soundproofing, yes you may hear some noise from another room, but this is due to the fact the property was constructed in the 70ies but also because the hotel is so quiet and in the silent you notice even small noises that you would not in a noisy environment. I hope to host you again as our guest, if you come back in Versilia.

Reviewed August 12, 2003

We visited this hotel in June 2003 on a package holiday from the UK.All the staff were very friendly, although most only spoke limited English.For most of the two weeks we were there we were the only Brits but by the end of our stay their English had improved 100%, likewise our Italian.I got the impression they would love more English speaking guests to visit.
Food was excellent four courses at dinner and a good buffet breakfast.Wine menu had a good range of excellent Tuscany wine averaging 18 euros.Pool area and terraces very spacious with free sunbeds and towels.We had the pool area to ourselves every afternoon during siesta time. The only downside was the smell from the drainage canal of an evening round the perimeter but I would not hesitate to go back to this hotel.
