This hotel was very nice. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the staff professional.
The only issue was that it is next door to a church and the church bells ring every morning starting at 7:00am.
The Best Western Hotel in Pescara is just off Corso Vittorio Emmanuelle, right in the downtown area and within walking distance to the beach. The hotel is basic and clean. The staff is very helpful and got us a reservation to one of the top restaurants in town.
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.
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Victoria. The staff was extremely friendly, professional and helpful. They went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and make our stay enjoyable in every way. They were informative and knowledgeable. The rooms were comfortable, stylish and beautiful. We would stay here again any time we return to Pescara and highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area!
I loved everything about the hotel in appearance, cleanliness, hotel staff etc.
The cappucino in the morning was heavenly! Free breakfast for that price was an added bonus.
The problem lied in the child that cried relentlessly in the buildings near by. I tried to rest and seriously wanted to shout out the window to get that kid to "SHUT UP", but being a good Canadian I did no such thing, just burried my head in the pillow.
Also the doors to each room in the hotel SLAM shut automatically, so even though when I closed the door I did it gently, most other guests couldn't care less about others in the hotel that may be sleeping at 6am!!! and let the doors slam! So one morning I counted, 15 door slams from 6-8am Not exactly cool!
But I suppose beggars cannot be choosers, so for that price, I got a pretty good deal.
Would I stay there again, not sure. Facility was awesome, but the noise below was a bit too much for me- but maybe such would be the case anywhere I stayed in that area.
Stretching along the Adriatic Sea, the coast of Pescara is dotted with beautiful seaside towns ranging from quaint historic towns like Vasto to larger resort cities like Pescara itself. Filled with beaches and natural reserves like Pineta di Santa Filomena, visitors flock to the area for its scenic beauty and different atmospheres ranging from festive and modern to tranquil and historic.
