“Great little hotel with friendly staff and an excellent restaurant”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at La Rocca for two nights. The hotel is right in the heart of picturesque Brisighella. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant was excellent and uses the freshest local ingredients which the chef explained to us as he talked us through the menu. The beef fillet with truffles, the fresh Porcini salad and the asparagus flan were exceptional!

The hotel also makes a good base for visiting nearby Faenza and Ravenna. All round a great stay.

This is my second review of Albergo La Rocca in stupendous Brisighella. I just returned from there! What can I say - perfect hotel, marvellous food in the restaurant, very kind Daniele and all the other staff! I have been all over Italy, stayed and eaten anywhere, but whenever I think of a PLACE, this is La Rocca, its restaurant and Brisighella. Would definitely return a third time. Thank you ever so much again for making me feel special!

Friendly and welcoming staff and owners, great restaurant, pretty and characterful village; ideal if you want a change of pace during a trip through the region's towns or cities, or a base to explore the local countryside. Have a glass of wine on the hotel's rooftop terrace while looking at the full moon rising over the valley hills and the castle on the peak above ...

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights on a weeklong trip to Italy. It was the best vacation I've ever had. I have stayed in hotels on 5 different contents and this by far was the best. We got there after driving from Pisa and were met by the owner. He took us to our rooms and waiting for us was welcome packet and a bottle of wine. He also moved his car so we could park next to the hotel with our luggage. We booked two rooms the first one was a large double the other was a quad room with a balcony. My in-laws and son stayed in the quad leaving my wife and me in the double. After a walk in the town we went to dinner at the hotel. The chef (who was also the owner) met us and talked us thru the entire menu. The food was amazing. The chef/owner is a great cook and the food was homemade, nothing frozen here. The next morning we got up and went to breakfast at the hotel (included). Our first night there was a festival there and we walked around and shopped with the locals. Buying wine/food/ antiques. The chef/owner was there again and made us fresh croissants and coffee (espresso and cappuccinos). We then went on a tour of the town. There is so much to see in the town we spent the entire day walking and seeing the sights. We didn't eat in the restaurant the second night and the food was still good. We did go up to the roof top terrace and had some wine. The view up and down is amazing. Our last night we were treated to a wonderful dinner, and when we left the chef gave us a bottle of the local wine to go. We left early and weren't able to get to the store.

There is a train station here if you want to go to one of the big cities. We took a day trip to Florence. It was nice, but it was also great to go back to the town. Now a word of advice, if you have only stayed in a big chain hotel in the US this is a very different place. There is no aconditioning, however we did have a fan and at night with the window open it was pleasnt to sleep. So don't expect US style AC, but you are in a place that AC is not normal, however the hotel and the town is truly a place that makes you feel welcome. If we get to go back to Italy we wil stay there. This was by far the favorite part of our trip and by far the most welcomeing. I would say stay here and base if you are going to travel.

We stayed for three nights at this wonderful small and simple hotel. They family who ran it were helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely large room with a small balcony overlooking a square. We dined at the hotel all three nights and the food was great - traditional Italian fare at its best.
We loved Brisighella too. The village and the surrounding area were delightful, and not crowded with tourists like Tuscany and Umbria.

Room Tip: It was nice to have a balcony

We loved Brisighella! It's a very peaceful and friendly little town.

The terrace on the rooftop of this hotel was very nice for looking at stars and the lit fortress and clock tower at night, and enjoying the view of the town rooftops and rolling countryside in the day. The breakfast was typical of Italian hotels (bread, pastries, yogurt, juice, cereal, etc.) The walnuts and cappuccino were very good. The rooms were clean with simple, older decor. The restaurant is excellent and open every night except for Monday. The family that runs the place is very kind and helpful and the son speaks good English.

My only hesitation in recommending Albergo La Rocca is that it was HOT when we stayed there in late June and a the temperature was a bit uncomfortable without AC, regardless of the breeze from the open windows and the nice fan.

Room Tip: Room 319 has a fantastic view of both the clock tower and the town! (No AC, though)

We booked a three night stay here for a country experience on our first trip to Italy, between Rome and Venice, Mainly just going on reviews and a shot in the dark, but after the first night we did not want to leave, wished for a longer stay, and will definitely return for a longer stay. The hotel takes you back to simpler days and is very comfortable and welcoming...being from Texas, the lack of air conditioning took a little adjusting for us, but being able to open the windows wide and take in the fantastic views and fresh air made it worth it. Be sure to check out the rooftop patio for even more amazing views of the hills, fortress, and clock towers... The family welcomed us warmly and tolerated our language barrier very well, even came out and translated the menu for us...and the food was the best we had anywhere in Italy, maybe anywhere ever, lol. Reasonably priced and a lovely outdoor setting. We even got to experience an Italian futbol win and celebration! Viva Italy! I can't say enough that would accurately describe this hotel and restaurant and village...completely safe and worthy of being the centerpiece to any Italian trip.

Room Tip: Just open the window and any room should be great
