“Great quality for price”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

This nice hotel is located in the very center of Sestri Levante, which for me is one of the best places in the Liguria coast.
The hotel is nice, the room spacious and comfortable.
And it is so convenient to just walk put and being in the town center
They also have beach facilities, which is very good for families, especially if they have children.
And, last but not least, it does not have the indecent prices of lots of place nearby. It is very good quality for money.
The staff is warm, professional and friendly.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

We stayed here for 2 nights in late September 2013. We had a nice room overlooking a park in back of the hotel. The bathroom was done in very pretty tile, but only had a shower. And the towels were really thin. After drying off from a shower they were soaking wet - and for whatever reason they did not dry overnight. (Obviously our clothes did not dry either; thank goodness we were staying 2 nights because it took that long for the socks & underwear to dry.)

We had a very good group meal here, one of the best we had on a week long tour.

The hotel is located directly across the street from the beach.
Beautiful location indeed.

Check-in was swift and the front desk staff were friendly and professional.
The main lobby was nicely furnished with plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs.

Our room was clean and comfortable but somewhat dated.
It appeared as if the room had been remodeled sometime in the past and is due for an up-date.
The bathroom was very narrow and the shower was a step up with glass folding doors.
This presented a potential safety hazard when stepping down.

The breakfast was well stocked and nicely presented.
The Grande Albergo is conveniently located close to everything including the train station.

We were traveling with a tour group and most of our fellow travelers had a pleasant stay at the Grande Albergo Hotel.

I spent seven nights here - the Grande Albergo has style, character and a wonderful position. The staff were very helpful, the breakfast superb. Drawbacks were the towels, which were not much use, and the dinner menu. I was on a tour and we ate out every evening, but for a vegetarian like me the hotel dinner menu was not at all appealing - the only possible main dish on several evenings was fried egg! Sestri Levante is a fascinating place and the hotel staff had helpfully left some tourist information booklets in the room, which I found invaluable as a supplement to my guide-book. I would gladly stay in the Grande Albergo again.

We stayed here for a week and were really pleased given some of the other reviews we read beforehand. The reception staff were helpful/friendly, the room was great (no seaview but then we weren't expecting one), the bathroom had everything we needed and the breakfast was an adequate start to the day.

The hotel's location is ideal - close to the promenade and the town centre and the public rooms were very comfortable.

Some of the lower-floor occupants complained about early morning street noise and late night disturbance from the function suite but - on the 4th floor - we were completely unaffected.

A couple of quirks: Our wardrobe contained a large collection of empty plastic bottles (which was even larger by the time we left!) and the wifi didn't seem to have much range. Neither of these detracted from the enjoyment of our stay.

Room Tip: Surprisingly, I would avoid the lower floors, particularly at the front. (see above).

The Grand Albergo is situated in a prime position on the sea-front road in Sestri Levante. Check-in was swift and efficient, and the pleasantness and efficiency of the reception staff was a feature throughout our stay.
Our room was small but adequate with a pleasant balcony. There were some surprising omissions. There was no in-room guide to the room itself or the hotel. There was a small piece of paper stuck near the telephone with some extension numbers and a few television channels, but this in no way compensated for the absence of the more comprehensive guide which has been a standard feature of hotel rooms for many years.The other unexpected omission was the absence of any facial tissues/paper hankies in the room or bathroom, again a standard provision for many years. The bedroom was air-conditioned, but the air-conditioning unit itself was extremely noisy. After two nights of very disturbed sleep we discovered how to turn it off - I'm sure the non-existant room guide would have told us this.
The bathroom was a problem. It was very compact with little space for toiletries etc. The shower cubicle was quite small, and this exacerbated the major problem with the shower, the complete lack of stability of the temperature. This would vary at random from cold to dangerously hot, and the small size of the cubicle made it difficult to avoid. This is a major problem because of the safety implications. The step down from the shower was also quite high and there was a significant possibility of slipping.
The breakfast was of average quality, but sitting in the outside part of the restaurant made it a pleasure. Unfortunately although breakfast was scheduled to start at 07.30 the restaurant was only partially set up at that time and attempting to go outside was rebuffed quite rudely.
In contrast the service in the bar was always friendly and excellent, and the prices were reasonable.
Overall this has the potential to be a good hotel but its drawbacks are very obvious at present.
