1.66km from Garden Ice CreamProbably erring on the side of generosity with my rating, but here's why: hotel staff were friendly and helpful (our Italian is all-but-non-existent, and not all staff speak English). We didn't like the room we had for our first night and were moved to a nicer room for the remaining two nights. The taxi we had requested for an early Sunday morning departure was there in good time before we had to leave. Breakfast was ok (bit heavy on pastries and cakes) and coffee was made to order. We had one evening meal with a group of us and the food was nice. The hotel is clean and rooms were cleaned daily. Beds were reasonably comfortable (although the mattresses seemed dated if the "Agip Motel" branding is an indicator). The hotel must have had some sort of makeover in recent years. That said, the decor is a bit old-fashioned. It's clearly a popular hotel for groups - sports teams and an orchestra stayed there during our visit. A friend of ours described the hotel as "not luxurious but solid" - which sums it up. The location isn't great without a car-it's off a busy roundabout adjacent to the viaduct into Catanzaro old town.
