We stayed on a B and B basis as we were visiting friends. The breakfast was buffet style and suited everyone. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and English was spoken by mos, although we were the only English people there. The pool was beautiful and there were plenty of sun beds. It is only a short, flat... More

My partner and I spent 10 days travelling around Italy, and this hotel was by far the most spectacular. It is set against the most beautiful backdrop of mountains, with the ocean just a short walk away. The staff were friendly, rooms clean and furbished with airconditioning and balconies overlooking the terraces and mountains. We lounged by the most beautiful... More

Helpful service and good breakfast . But the room , 222, was very noisy , roadside and some kind of generator directly outside the window working all the time. Irritating! On the positive side, beach just 5 minutes walk and conero bus linea 94 stops just 50 meters from the hotel, final destination Portonovo baia.

The hotel is just average. Restaurant was closed and was told would only re-open in summer. As we were there for a conference, breakfast and lunch were served. The rooms were OK, quite big, but looks tired, and needs refurbishment. The balcony was not clean, with wet dead leaves unswept. It is definitely not very convenient if you have large... More

This is a good hotel, if you have no problems with thin walls (yes, you can hear what your neighbours talk and what they watch on TV) and rather avarage standard (beds, breakfast. bathroom, etc.).

“Room 303 is a corner room (only one neighbour!) in the third floor, balcony side. You will have to fight with floods in the bathroom after taking a shower, but a good chance of a quiet night. we stayed the first night in the ground floor, not recommended!”
