    The hotel would have benefited from an F&B outlet on the property...it is true that it is surrounded by restaurants and bars but it would have been nice to have the option to be served an Aperol Spritz on their beautiful terrace...

    The hotel's location is the best! You can still get there by car( some other hotels are in a pedestrian zone) yet it is in the heart of the action. The hotel has a lot of charm in every detail. The staff are friendly and helpful.

    Difficult to locate by car in a one way street. There is public parking nearby where we were able to stay free, but we were travelling out of season and I imagine this may be a problem in high season.

    Huge villa bang in the centre of Tropea, large well appointed comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, excellent value for money.

    WiFi struggled feebly against the solid structure of the old building. The room was a bit gloomy and cramped/overfilled. Credit card reader failed.

    Very welcoming and helpful reception staff. Located perfectly between the station and the centro storico. The faded grandeur of the place gave it a charming and unique character.

    Where shall I start. Only thing good is location. Dark and dingy room, smelt of damp. Lighting very poor coming down steps out of foyer , missing light bulbs in bathroom. No lighting around the outside for night. We asked for an iron as we were going to a party whilst staying for 6 nights and it never came. Over priced for what it was. Parking is 30 euros then 10 euros on top every day.

    Area was very nice.

    The property is a very nice looking old villa in the town centre, but our room can only be best described as being in the basement. It was roomy enough but very dark (need lights on all the time), and the bathroom, although exceptionally large and functional was visually something to behold. We asked for another room but were told that this was not possible and we were actually in their 'Best Room'. Don't know what the other rooms are like.

    The property is very central, close to numerous restaurants and shops. Lovely hilltop town above nice sandy public beaches. Only stayed for one night but the town has a good feel about it.

    Well, the bedroom was dark with no table, desk or light suitable for reading. But there were lots of small tables outside amid trees and shrubs and walkways. So perfect slightly later in the year.

    The town was "out of season" but not this hotel. The service and breakfast were excellent. The bathroom was big and everything worked well. The heating and television were efficient. The breakfast room was very pretty with deep pink drapery and tulips to match. And they were anxious to provide whatever I wanted. Lifts to the beach down below were offered for E2. The hotel is on the main route to the station and easy to find. (next to the bank, on the right) The restaurants were all closed at lunch time, but the two ladies in the shop just down the road could provide all that was needed for a picnic. And the café in the square was wide awake. A day trip to Pizzo on the train was a good idea, too.

    The hotel itself is a beautiful house, 2 minutes walk from historic center. The owner is very kind and made our stay memorable, doing everything she could to make us confortable, happy and satisfied. I loved the room which was a suite downstairs, in a little garden, very quiet, spacious, cozy. And very unique too. Each room has a unique decor, very original. Lovely! There's a public park very close to the hotel.
