Within a stone's throw of the beach. Great location. The top floor's (6) Terazzo Ristorante has a wonderful view of the Adriatic. Had breakfast (included) up there both days. Stay away from the "American coffee", but the espressos and Cappuccinos are great. Very small shower, much like the elevators. Clean rooms. Ok bed. Lots of TV channels, but no English news station (that I could find). Nice bar next door. Within short walk of many very nice restaurants. The RE (forget what the "R" & "E" stand for) restaurant is only two blocks away is wonderful. So is Bruno's on the beach. Both brought out fresh uncooked fish (seemingly straight from the Adriatic) to pick from. Once cooked, they filleted them next to the table, enough for each in our party of 4 and 5. Montepulciano reds (Abruzzo regional red wine) and Pecorino whites (also from Abruzzo) are highly recommended. Hotel is hard to sleep soundly though the night even after a full meal and plenty of regional wine due to people in the streets until 2 a.m. and garbage collection at 4 a.m. (both nights) and street cleaners between 5 and 6 a.m.
The hotel is located at the end of a mall so it is very hard to reach by car, it took us three try's and lots of asking people who try to explain in Italian how to get there and most said it is very hard to get to by car. When we eventually arrived there were other English tourists who were walking in with there suitcases saying we did better then them to find the hotel as they left their car and walked to find it. Once we were there the hotel was lovely staff were friendly and the room was very nice, the location is great for walking around the city and overall we had a lovely
Stay we would recommend.
The hotel is in the centre of town, although it is not noisy. The room was very spacious and well kept. Staff were helpful and polite. Also, although we were there in early summer and it was 30 degrees celsius outside, the room never felt hot. We did not need to turn on the air conditioning.
