For a single room it was better than I expected and the view was spectacular.
Though the menu in the restaurant was limited the food was good and the staff helpful. Breakfast was also good. With a four lane toad and a main line tailway between the hotel and the sea it could hardly be called a seaside location. Equally these features detract from claims to a good view as did the Lidl supermatket next door. We would have liked to walk into Ancona but a 4 lane road with no footpaths I would not risk with English motorists, never mind the Italians. If I had been there on business it would have been reasonable, but not on holiday.
free internet, A/C, view of the sea, good free breakfast no internet in rooms, location
very friendly restaurant staff cost of any hotel in italy
Free parking. Room. Location is acceptable only if you travel by car. Payable internet.
The personnel was polite and friendly. Nice breakfast. The room and especially the bath was not very clean. The room was kind of uncosy - it was large and empty and the ceiling was pretty high.
Cleaness and staff helpfulness There is nothing to complain about the hotel has it offers an excellent price/quality ratio.
easy car parking bit expensive for what it is
Location and comfort None
No charge parking
Easy to find location, outlook on the harbour Room 127 very tiny ugly and not very well cleaned. I arrived at 1 a.m. very tired to call the staff and claim or ask to change room. At checkout staff did not say neither thanks nor goodbay.
It is not walking distance from the hotel and walk on the hill was very tiering with the luggage
Beautiful sea view. Ideal location to take a ferry from Ancona. Rooms with sea view are somewhat noisy. Shut the window and switch on the air conditioning is necessary.
I was shure it is hotel. But it is motel. It is not easy to get this hotel without a car.
Excellent restaurant and in the center of city Internet expensive, did not work properly and not convenienent linked to TV. Could not connect portable DVD to TV for children entertainment
Beautiful location on a hill overlooking the sea. Very convenient position to take a ferry in Ancona. Rooms with sea view are somewhat noisy. Shut the window and switch on air conditioning is necessary
The hotel has a lovely view over the harbour. The breakfast dining area is pleasant. The staff were very friendly The hotel bedrooms desperately need to be upgraded.The basin had two cracks in it. The shower unit was tacky. The shutter tapes are nearly coming off the wall. The rooms are pokey
We particularly enjoyed the friendly staff and as we met our friends here from London had an excellent stay here. Internet charges exorbitant. We have been traveling for 4 weeks around Italy and to pay E20 for one hour is certainly avbout 4 times more than we have paid anywhere else! Probably needs some minor upgrades to decor.
Location (quiet, close to city center, close to ferry departures) Poor road signals
Nice and quiet room. Better breakfast
Ease of checkin/checkout. Politeness and courtesy at front desk.Cleanliness and housekeeping in the room. No room service and no facility to make a cup of coffee on rising from bed. No hot breakfast. The lack of a restuarant in the room was offset by restuarant closeby.
Very clean and quiet Located a ways from the train station
Easy to find, quiet place, clean and comfortable rooms, free parking, even you can find places only if you arrive in the afternoon... No WI-FI at the second floor and the front desk receptionist says "maybe there are too many users at the same time..."
Interconnecting rooms were excellent for a family. Staff were pleasant, spoke English fairly well. Buffet breakfast was fine and unlimited, and open for 3 hours each morning.. No restaurant and only one local place to eat. You need to be prepared to travel to Ancona for food.
possibility to check out at 3 o'clock, to use internet for free, to have the car parked by the staff, to have cookies in the room at arriving and cookies in the lobby at any time. old and not very beautifully arranged, the colours, the floors, etc.
Very pleasent place to stay and convenient to ferries. Great breakfast room atop the hotel.
Gentelman at the reception extremetly helpfull.
Lovely lady on reception - extremely helpful at all times and secured our room until very late the following afternoon (at no extra cost) as we were taking a ship from Ancona to Turkey that evening. Excellent service thank you.
I thought that the hotel were fully justified in using the descriptor Grand in their title. This was a very elegant hotel with beautifully proportioned rooms and very tasteful decor. All of the staff were delightful and extremely helpful and efficient - I cannot speak too highly of them. My bathroom facilities were fine and spotlessly clean. Not only was breakfast included in the rate (and free tea and cookies available in the Lounge at all times), but also free Wifi access - and this was a high speed connection and I had no problems with the signal. No, nothing.
a real pleasure
It was a life saver to have staff that spoke English. The hotel itself was beautiful and worth every penny.
I chose this hotel for it#s proxiomity to the port of Ancona. The breakfast was good. The bathroom was incredibly antiquated - the shower and plumbing were not good and there was a lot of noise from unruly guests during the night. There were no real facilities except for the secure parking.
The staff were extremely helpful and the location very good.
the hotel's nearnes to the city centre we had trouble with english channel television for most of our stay
Dejligt værelse - men personalet var udsædvanlig afvisende og taler ikke spor engelsk. Var ikke klar over, at beliggenheden var så ucharmerende. Trafikhelvede og ingen restauranter i hele området - kun barer og pizzarier. Egner sig kun for gennemrejseophold, hvor man hurtig tager toget videre..
The room was very clean, the furnishings pleasent and comfortable. Breakfast included is always a plus. There is no designated parking for this hotel. Although the hotel is dog friendly, there is no grass in the immediate vicinity, you must walk to Piazza Cavour, a few blocks from the hotel.
The proximity to the city centre and port area. I stayed in a good sized room, very clean and relaxing. The buffet style breakfast was well presented. The front door has to be opened each time by the staff, so there is no sense of freedom to come and go.
Staff were helpful and pleasant, the hotel had recently been refitted, modern and clean and worked really well. Location easier with a car (otherwise steps awkward for luggage) for which a parking permit was provided by the hotel.
good staff we had to leave early, train. coffee but no breakfast
it's very clean warm and comfortable, staff are very polite helpfull ; i had a pleasant saty and i would recomend it the are a few steep steps to reach the hotel , i didnt mind the steps but to some people they might find it difficult specially elderly people and when you have to drag your travelling bags up the stairs and down
The hotel is clean. I did not like the location, with a cafe on the street below which played loud music.
Exceptionally clean and comfortable
Easy to walk to town and good restaurants , suggestions provided were very pleasing. Access and parking require leg muscles! Handicap access no. Fresh fruit for breakfast please
Everything was good, except the location of its lobby. The lobby is situated in the middle of steps on the hill. It is definitely not convenient for wheelchair or people with a heavy luggage.
Proximity to the old city and restaurants Car parking space close to the hotel difficult to find (even though hotel provided a daily permit)
Central location a little expensive for what you got.
The staff were extremely helpful with bus times and numbers to get to the Conero Peninsula. They also could recommend a restaurant during Ferragosto that had stayed open. Breakfast was more than just a pastry and the service was impeccable. The hotel was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Just the location. The location was however close to a main bus stop. Walking up to the hotel it gave a bad impression, but once inside it was a completely opposite feel.
Very good service from hotel staff (however, they do not speak much English, so some knowledge of Italian is good). The hotel is pretty new so everything is fresh, clean and nice. A little bit outside of the city center, but close enough to the train station (10 mins walk or 3 mins bus).
hotel's location is good for transport links (nearby bus interchange), the girl at the reception desk-very helpful, inside of the hotel much better than the outside-nice surprise! clean and tidy, breakfast ok neither fancy nor pretty area to be frank, and its outside appearance not very exciting, would obviously do with some major refurbishment
Small but clean rooms, good sized bathroom, friendly who we assume ran the hotel tried to be helpful It would be useful to know Italian if you stay here, as his english was very, very limited. He was lovely though.
Nice family run hotel close to the Ancona Port. Service impeccable.
