Individual guest reviews

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Location - very close to the train station and easy walk to old section which was very nice.

    Room was very plain. Bathroom could have been cleaner.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    A very convenient location which suited our needs. Secure parking on site. Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable bed. Clean environment.

    Two minor points, the first being that the temperature during our stay was very high and the air conditioning was not in operation (reception advised that the system was not in use until June). The room was very hot! The second point relates to the sink in the bathroom. It takes an age to drain and this was a bit of a bore. Nothing serious though.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The location was a short walk to town centre, which was great as staying in town would have been too busy. The pool location is at the bottom of the cliff with a jetty were you can pick up a boat trip, or just watch the boats come and go. The rooms were tidied twice a day. Breakfast on the terrace with the view over the Amalfi bay was a highlight.

    Don't book the standard room and expect it to be ok, the superior room is vastly better. We were upgraded as I was dissappointed on arrival at the the standard which they did for the same rate.

  • Couple

    Good location, nice hotel.

    Water did not drain from bathtub properly. We got this hotel at a good rate however I do not think it is worth the usual rate (close to 200euro/night).

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    Ground floor common areas were impressive, albeit in gloomy lighting

    Corridors were incredibly gloomy. Room was incredibly poor - very dated and miserable. Price certainly did not reflect good value.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Great for what we needed. Good location, fairly central in Tours, very close to the railway station.

  • Single
    8.4

    Perfect location and great service, very nice hotel to recomend.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    the caring staff and the oldy worldy atmosphere

    air conditioning was too cold - but some people would have loved that!

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Excellent location. Just few minutes away from tourist office and train station. Staffs are friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The fact that we were right in the centre but with safe parking plus the comfort of a high quality hotel with discreet but pleasant staff.

    We were there from Friday till Sunday and would have liked the bar and restaurant to have been open more of the time. We felt that the hotel was there for the business people and just happened to stay open for those who wanted a weekend break. Arriving on Friday late afternoon, we had to go out to get a cup of tea or coffee, there being nowhere open in the hotel and no facilities in the bedroom.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The hotel was very central and suited our needs of being near the exhibition centre which was a pproximately a 10 minute drive away.

    The reservation was for a double room. The room was however equipted with two single beds pushed together, and were only separable by 30cm.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The staff were ready to help at all moments and were generally very friendly. The room, although a little dated (this is really part of the charm) was fantastic: very clean and comfortable.

    There were no complaints to be made apart from the price of mini-bar drinks - this is nonetheless something to worry about in all hotels, I am aware of that. But do stay away from the very costly half bottle of champagne!

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The hotel was full of history and the early 20th C ambience has been preserved. Loved the quirky bedroom with the window into the bathroom. Also the heavy period furniture pieces set about.

    The toilet cubicles are always too small!

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We loved this hotel for its historical charm and antique style decoration. We particularly liked the spacious bedroom and the lovely decor there. Much of the furniture has been there for some time, but it is all in very good condition and added to the charm. We booked the private car park and found that a super facility to have in the centre of the city. Fantastic location.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Very good location near to the station, and main shopping street, the old town area with the majority of restaurants and bars is good 15 minutes (as is the river) walk away but well worth visiting to see the old buildings and people watch. The hotel rooms and central reception area were large and comfortable, with a suggestion of faded grandeur.

    The bathroom is in need of a revamp. The traditional sink was cracked, and the tiles damaged over the bath which caused serious leaking when using the shower
