0.84km from Le Vigne del MareI really wanted to love this hotel. Unfortunately it wasn’t the experience I had hoped for given the glowing reviews. Upon our arrival, we were locked out. We stood on the street ringing the bell for about 15 minutes before we broke down and made an expensive international call to the hotel to get them to let us in. The man who took care of us seemed very harried, in fact we never even learned his name. It appears as though he’s running the entire place by himself. The hotel is a bit out of town and advertises beautiful views of the countryside which is why we decided to stay there. Unfortunately our view was only of the hotel we thought we were staying in. We did not receive the room as pictured during booking, but were actually placed in a new addition across the courtyard from the original hotel, in a different, newly refurbished building. Don’t get me wrong, the room was quite nice. Everything is clean and white. It has only been open six months I believe he said? The bed is very comfy. The window is very large and has darkening curtains. The wallpaper and bed frame is gorgeous. There is air conditioning which is nice because you need the windows closed due to some street noise, however we couldn’t get it to work. It just feels very separated from the hotel and it seemed we got one of the very few rooms on the property with no view. The downfall is the shower situation. It’s not in the bathroom but in the hall? so there is ZERO privacy. There’s no light in the shower, so you need to use the hall lights. There are no shelves in the shower either. There are a couple hooks by the front door but otherwise no place to hang towels. But there is plenty of hot water and a very large rain shower-head. For toiletries you get some shampoo and body wash. A small bar of soap. A vanity set with q-tips and makeup pads. A shower cap. Standard affair. And there’s a towel warming rack. It’s just very basic. No fridge. No coffee maker or kettle. But the price reflects that. Breakfast goes until 10am and is fairly extensive for Italian breakfast. The tables are already set with plain yogurt, croissants, cakes, cheese, mortadella, bread and fresh fruit and juice. It just seemed that none of it was very nice quality. The man who runs the hotel will offer you coffee. The coffee isn’t good. They might be better off with a buffet. I was expecting a very personal experience and instead it was just very transactional. Check out was fine. They had raised the nightly tourist tax from .50 to 2€ each just before we arrived but we were able to pay by card. It was a very good place to stay given the price, just very basic. I would try elsewhere if I returned.
