The location is great for wandering all around town and easy access to the beach. The hotel was clean and our room was medium in size with all neccessary teatures. We had a big rainstorm and had a little leaking from roof, but we were able to contain the water in a small wastebasket. It would not deter me from staying again. Staff friendly and helpful.

I chose this because of the location and garden and the reviews in TA and it was a great decision. The location is great, quiet and still in the old town. The room was nice and the bathroom small but modern and functional. Our room was on the ground floor but we there were only few rooms further so not many people walking by. I really enjoyed reading in the garden under the trees. We also enjoyed sitting out having some rose front of our room before going out for dinner. There was a fridge to keep your drinks cool.

There was a computer that we could use which came handy since the free wi-fi did not function well with our phones or iPad. I hope they make some updates to solve that problem. The breakfast was served upstairs until 11. and you could get almost anything you asked. I liked have my breakfast out on the terrace.

We needed to get the train station early in the morning and we got a lift from the staff. I think the staff was friendly and polite. I will definitely return.

We truly loved this hotel and it is by far the best one of our trip to Italy. It is located in an historical villa, while having the most modern facilities in the room, including home cinema big screen and hydromassage shower.
We had two twins room to accomodate the 5 of us in the nice garden of the hotel. It is very quite, while being only 200 meters away from the main square of Tropea.
What we liked the most was the breakfast. We are so used to the traditional self-service breakfasts in big hotels like Hilton or Sheraton. Here it was a personal experience. You still get your breakfast served at your table and it never ends, from home-made jam to french-style crepes.
The value for money is outstanding when going to Tropea off-season (we were there in May and at that time of the year it was already possible to swim in the beautiful sea at a 15-minute walk from the hotel)

After reading other reviews im stunned!
Hotel was ordinary, not the best hotel i've stayed in. We stayed here for 4 nights and the service was dissapointing, staff barely acknowledged us when we walked past reception. A little advice to the staff at Villa Antica, good customer service encourages return guests and on this occasion due to our experience, we won't return.

Room Tip: Room opposite reception can be very NOISY!!!

Location was good, in the heart of Tropea and within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Rooms were small and dated but clean. Breakfast in the morning was not appetizing. The major let down of the hotel was the service or lack thereof. Upon arrival television and phone did not work, after several requests we fixed the tv ourselves however the phone was never attended to. The Internet service did not work for the whole stay and from what we could gather from other guests had not worked for several days before our stay. When we asked for a restaraunt suggestion they could only suggest one place, which was affiliated with the hotel......

In a nutshell, the location was good, the service was less than ordinary bordering on unprofessional.

My husband and I travelled here last month. Although the weather didn't cooperate, the Villa Antica was wonderful. Valentina picked us up from the airport and thank goodness she did because our baggage didn't arrive when we did. She was able to communicate and had the gentleman at the airport contact her when our bags arrived. She then told us she would come bac and get us to take us to our bags. We met Giancarlo at breakfast the next day. We were upgraded to a suite and it was a very nice room. The bathroom was huge! Breakfast was wonderful and Giancarlo was an excellent host! We just kept getting more food! At the end of our first breakfast we were given grappa as a digestive. Thais you never had grappa before..well you must try. I would stay here again because of the wonderful host we had!
