Very friendly and helpful staff - excellent value - breakfast on the terrace was delightful with viewws across the valley.
Very friendly hosts, very comfortable clean rooms, liked the Italian style furniture and enjoyed a lovely breakfast. Very good value for money also beautiful views. Thought the star rating should be higher. Thank for lovely stay. Didn't read the reviews ... can't comment on this question! Felt the shower was a litle small ... but okay.
Very nice hotel in a beautiful location. Clean and calm. The owners family is very friendly and responsive (although speaking no English). Breakfast was good enough with very tasty fresh croissants. The nearest town Dolcedo is amazingly beautiful with its' old buildings and a small river. No Wi-Fi at all.
Quite location, great views from room, within short distance of coast, motorway. A good hotel if you have your own transport. No bad points.
Very good value. Difficult to find. Needs map.
Quiet surroundings. Nice views and vista. Good pizzeria in Dolcedo serving also pasta and main dishes. Rather difficult to find. Couldn't supply us with ice for sundowners.
Clean and pleasant room, cleaned each day. Difficult car access to parking. Too many sweet cakes etc for breakfast!
Very friendly and helpful people. the room was excellent.The breakfast was superb, too much food, but of very high quantity, and service was excellent also.
staff ready to help you, Close to the bus station and ferry from Lussina, excellent rooms, quite place moscitos in nice garden
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Apparently a nice family business. Room well appointed, well serviced and good air con. Beach clean and well maintained and the swimming pool was large, clean and well appointed. Hotel close to restaurants and a wide variety of shops. A pleasant little community
stayed 2 nights, pleasant staff a lovely hotel by the sea
the locaton is not too bad because it is right on the beach and in the center of the villate....except if you have a road side room. These are very noisy! Very noisy road side rooms, old fashend hotel, unfriendly staff. They even offerd us a discount for paying in cash! We left the hotel at midnight, because we could not sleep and they were not able to give us a quiet room.
The view and location to town. Outdoor parking not gated
We got a very warm welcome on arrival . gracious hostess.A lot of the guests were quite elderely and seem to return annually.maybe not suited to younger travellers It was very comfortable hotel and very clean The breakfast was poor ,I expected plenty of fresf fruit only to get tin peaches and apples. The hot breakfast of eggs and bacon was in limited amounts.and you were waiting for them to be replaced .
Relaxing A little regimented regarding the poolside and sunbathing facilities
Staff and facilities for the beach and pool. Close to town but not in town
Excellent situation, good room, pleasant balcony overlooking the sea, quiet and interesting village.
It was the first time we were to Imperia and we loved it very much. The hotel staff was very kind (it is a family managed hotel), the rooms were very clean, breakfast was fair, we couldn't use the pool due to the mid-august rain but we enjoyed the hotel location vey much. If you are a couple looking for a GREAT vacation - this is your place ! in the evening you can walk to the nearest restarant or take a short drive to the ciry.
the owners went out of their way to be helpful. They stayed up very late the first night waiting for us because our plane had been delayed. the rooms were clean, the breakfast was delicious, and the grounds, though small, are lovely.
location, vicinity to sea, view from room balcony, local medieval town. Either be ready to dance along all night or take your earplugs; there are three disco bars next door to the hotel! Great location if you have teenage children.
The location is super ( 50 m from sea). the ownes is one family. They work every day in there hotel. Very luxury fish restorant. Very convinient for staing with small child
The pool was very nice. the rooms were very clean and there was amply storage. I will start with early morning - very early morning! The trains start. The line is no more than 20 meters from the hotel and there are about 3-4 trains per hour starting at least 5am. The hotel states it has sound proof rooms! mmmm. Breakfast is a poor affair. The staff have no idea whatsoever how to make a cup of tea - OK but don't advertise to British guests then. Hot!!! not really, water came in a variety of utensils ranging from a jug to a coffee pot. All are stained and not very nice. There is no bar, although they will serve you with drinks when the restaurant is open. Next door is a very busy crazy golf bar where the holes are made of metal - back to the sound proofed rooms! Generally - it is very noisy.
Quiet airconditioned rooms, even though the railway went just beside the hotel which could be irritating when outside A very nice pool that no one used as you had to have a bath cap on, even if you didn´t dive or had your head under the water.
The owners treated you like family. They were very accommodating. The food was excellent and all homemade Nothing
Very nice hotel close to the beach. Very friendly and serviceminded family who owns the hotel. Good value for money
During my stay at the Locanda del Mar, I enjoyed the cleanliness, the location (near the beach), and the hotel staff was very friendly.
Fabulous room and facilities - pool, restaurant, staff, food was first class along with service, Bit noisy at night from neighbouring bar although beside railway this did not spoil our enjoyment. The town of Imperia was a little disappointing but the hotel was so good it didn't matter
Very nice and friendly girls on the reception. Breakfast asortiments.
Marvellous view to beach and see. Rooms are quite small.
It was central and easy access to Beach etc Having to pay to park the car
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Constant noise from traffic especially mopeds did spoil our sea view room but worse were the late night beach parties that could last until 4 am. This did spoil our stay. The level of the noise was intolerable and impossible to sleep through.
Good location at beach side. Friendly image. Bad condition room. Too narrow and shabby. No good service and breakfast. It is make light of japanese, for example different from my request. (narrow sppace and not balcony.
The views from the room across the bay. My wife who has a slight back problem found the bed a bit hard.
close to beach and town no air conditioning, limited parking had to park 2 km away, loud party across the street until 4 am and high volume of vehicle traffic during the day
The location next to the beach was great and the option to rent a discounted beach chair was nice. The internet service stopped at 9pm. I would have been nice if it had been available an hour or two later.
Homely and friendly WiFI connection is availalbe in the lobby only
Fair location (just a busy street to cross to access the beaches and harbour) Staff was not at all welcoming - No help for luggage - Rooms, lobby, elevator and breakfast room very old-fashioned and cheap-looking - Hair-dryer broken - Restricted air-conditioning (we had to claim 3 times to have it working though the temperature of the room was very high)
Nice large room, breakfast was quite nice Staff not very informative upon checkin, I had to ask everything myself, from checkout time, to breakfast time, to how to get to the beach.
the view of the sea was the best feature lack of facilities
Room was very clean, air conditioning very effective, restaurant was wonderful. Parking spaces were very tight
Rooms clean and comfortable. Restaurant, very good food at reasonable price with friendly service. Pleasant location, watched sun go down over the sea while eating our evening meal. Parking very tight. We reserved a parking space with our booking but wasn't available. Shower cubicle very small, need elbow protectors!
I loved the panorama sea byy my windows, the big and confortable bathroom, the elevator.the breakfast was very good.the hotel is in front of the sea, and a 10 min of walking to the shopping center. There's a very little parking, that in the week end is full! All the forniture in the room are new, but doors are very old and the windows doesn't protect by noises of the street.
Great location overlooking the ocean.
The view of the ocean from our room
Great reception from friendly staff. Very clean and refurbished hotel with stunning views over the Mediterranean. Close to town centre. restaurant bright and clean with good menu. Waiter in restaurant was humourless and a bit formal.
The room was good, everything new and clean, perfect view from the balcony (note: not all the rooms have a balcony, but we were lucky to have one, but I guess all the rooms are with the sea-view). No internet connection in the rooms (but there is a free pc with internet in the hall); location-wise: there is a road leading to the city centre/port between the hotel and the sea, sometimes quite busy and can be noisy (but it doesn't bother at night, if you keep the windows closed).
Excellent location, with the stairs to the beach right in front of the hotel door. Beautiful view of the sea in the breakfast room. Staff was nice. The suite didn't look loke one: the furniture was old, there was no refrigerator. Generally, in some rooms there is good furniture, while others look old, with stains on the walls, and don't give the appearance of giving value for money. And hot water served during the breakfast had a strange taste, which made tea awful.
Excellent location, staff, rooms with air conditioning. The breakfast was always the same and not so delicious. And definitely a better coffee machine required in the breakfast area!
1. Nice view to the town and sea. 2. Helpfull and friendly stuff. 3. Recent repair, clean rooms with new furniture. 4. Good breakfast with free morning cappuchino on the sunny terace. 5. Close to the beach (3 min walking) Very good hotel! We definately reccomend to everybody, who wish to have a good vacation in a nice place! The railway nereby with an hourly going laudly train.
very nice hotel, helpfull staff, good location, clean room ( 208 ). everything was perfect. a little problem with parking around the hotel
It was spotlessly clean and friendly we will return
The location is good (easy parking,...). The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast is certainly OK. The hotel is nicely renovated, but there is a small negative point : the walls are quite thin (some noice is passing from the hallway and the other rooms).
I liked this hotel very much! We stayed there for a week and everything was perfect. We booked a room with ac and it was a very good choice as the weather was really hot! Staff was always friendly and even though we did not speak Italian we had no problems getting by with English! Our room was not too big but recently renovated with an excellent bathroom and very clean!!!! I liked that our room was cleaned everyday and we always had fresh sheets and towels. We had a half board and chose lunch as we wanted to go out for dinner and try local places and food. Restaraunt at the hotel was excellent and service just perfect. Food was very tasty and always had a choice of diferent fish. I would definitely recomend this hotel to anybody! I liked everything and price was very reasonable!!!
View, Friendly Staff Small Room / Tiny en-suite
Good breakfast and location, very close to sea. The room was really small. It's okay for couple of days only.
View form the balcony is very nice and room is clean and looks new. Good acces to the beach (short walk). Very friendly stuff. No refrigerator in the room and TV with poor reception. Small and noisy swimming pool (near busy street) with cold and half-salt water. Parking lot very small and narrow, we had problems finding free spot (despite we paid for reservation) or drive car out. During our stay there were only 5 bicycles available for rent (one of them had flat tire) and rather for short persons.
Family atmosphere, very good service, good food, nice staff, clean rooms, nice terrace to sit and drink coffee after the big dinner. The sunbeds and deck chairs at the beach are included in the price if you stay one week. During the night the trains were not going through so it was good. The size of the room could be bigger, but if you are the whole day on the beach or in town at the evening it does not matter at all. There are only showers in the rooms, but if you have a small child they provide a baby bath as well as a baby cot.
Hotel molto ben posizionato e confortevole.
It was interesting the place where is tthe Hotel Kristina.The service in the hotel was exellent .The hotel has a beautiful seaside. well, i could say that the elevator in the Hotel Kristina was too small.
no air conditioning, no elevator, skeleton staff, no window screens, loud bar across the way until 3 AM, street noise, HOT HOT HOT in August. Poorest choice out of 18 day stay in Italy.
Breakfast was quite good quality and plenty of it No tea/coffee making facilities in the room and nowhere to leave bags once checked out
the location is pretty good, very close to a nice relatively quiet beach the noise! It is so noisy in the room: the cars and motorbikes that pass through almost 24 hours a day! no double glass so impossible to keep the noise out of the room! I also missed an AC
Very friendly staff, low price, garage availability. Difficult access to the sea, very limited breakfast, some unrepaired things on the ceiling and balcony.
Very nice and helpful staff understanding needs of family with small children.
The hotel is in a pleasant environment near the beach and some very pleasant restaurants. The possibility of extending the hotel rooms for air conditioning.
Lovely pool and beach, reception staff were lovely. Rooms far too hot, breakfast appalling, serving staff at breakfast extremely rude.
The location,style and friendliness of staff could not be faulted.We only stayed one night en-route to our final destination,but we would definately stay for longer in the future. No.
not a lot See above comment
Nice to have a balcony and coffee/tea making facilities Choice of meals in the restaurant for dinner. English menu not Italian
The hotel is nice, adequate to a what a 3 stars should be. The staff is very welcoming (speaks perfect english). The rooms are clean and comfortable (try asking for a sea view room). Minibar, air conditioner.
I didnt like the cleaness of the room, the smell was very bad, and we had insects in the room, the ants were running all over
We liked the spacey room (Junior suite) and the overall cleanliness. Also the location of the hotel was excellent. We didn't like the carpet floor in our room. Floor looked dirty and we thought that the carpet floor isn't the best option to room with a jacuzzi. Hotel's breakfast could easily be better. Currently it's quite simple and doesn't include any vegetables or anything else fresh.
The room, the hotel facilities, the cleanliness. The hotel looks new, the suites are excellent. Very close to the beach - which is great. The breakfast and the staff involved in the process (waiters).
Very clean, nice staff, large room with nice design.
We liked that it was very close to the beach and we could see the sea from our window. The breakfast buffet was rather simple.
Supposed to be a suite but very basic with whirlpoolbath in the bedroom, very tacky! Clean family hotel not like the photos or description. Nice area for family holiday, not really for prof. couples.
It was more or less wheelchair accessible a proper accessible bathroom only outside the room in the hallway
Wonderfull room, Beach at 50m
staff was really nice, we enjoy our stay.Room were nice and clean, over all the hotel was really good, and really close to the beach.
on the reception know more languages, that mean was easy contact! Free parking, and hotel lacatoin is super!
Service and help from the personell. Unbeatable sometimes it was too warm...
Very good choice for silent rest.near to the beach, near to departure from the town, many typical Italian restaurants around. Very cleanly, fine attitude of the staff. The closed parking
The staff, breakfast and location suited our purposes very well. We enjoyed the old city of Imperia and Porto Turistico was very picturesque. Two thumbs up for Hotel Ariston! There were tears when we left.
I enjoyed the location of the hotel, which is very close to the beach. I also enjoyed the friendly hotel staff. For example, they offered to keep our car in their parking garage on the day of checking out so we did not have to go and look for a parking space on the last day of our vacation. The walls between the rooms were not very soundproof. Our neighbour was snoring most of the night, so that was a little bit annoying.
Location and help given
Comfortable and friendly
very nice and beautifull hotel, environment, very friendly staff, very good breakfast,which took place on the terrace.I can only recommend it, excellent. Nothing.It was very very nice.
Well organized family-owned hotel. Staff speaks several languages. Breakfast ok. Good base for exploring the Italian riviera.
Hotel Ariston is a Family run Hotel. They were very accomodating to every need. Best part was to find onsite parking at no charge and free wifi. I would definitely return when I am in the area again.
New hotel, excellent value for money. Staff were helpful but not very cheerful. Room quite small for a 4 star hotel. Fair walk into town and to restaurants.
Good location overpriced, air conditioning in room is not turned on until June
Excellent breakfast and the evening meal was very good value. Female proprietor speaks excellent English. Very helpful staff. We had a big verandah with a Mediterranian view and a drying rack for clothes. Installing a shower box would be money well spent. No space for parking outside the hotel for packing and unpacking the car. A light in the parking area would also be appreciated. Internet was only possible in the restaurant.
It was a good hotel for what we needed.......Very friendly staff , we arrived around midnight, 2am and there was no problems with this. We had our two dogs with us and again no problem. Standard but good breakfast.Everything what we needed. We like everything.
The location and all the facilities available. The manager was very accommodating and worked as part of the hotel. No Lift.
Vary comfterble and friendly could not asked for better Nothing
Simple but clean hotel, with nice location close to the see, not far from the highway. Although available - wifi was not possible to connect at the room.
Nice staf some speak english. In the restaurant englisch was a problem. Parking in garagebox five minute walk from the hotel
Courteous and friendly staff, good food in the hotel dining room, pleasant and clean room, close access to restaurants and beach. It was difficult to reach the hotel because of its location on a narrow crowded street.
Great staff! Very friendly & nice people! Great location! Hotel parking included!
Private car park, right next to the beach, reasonable access Hotel is at the sad end of Diano Marina. Our deluxe room with ful sea view was very small
Good room if a little small - excellent view of sea/private beach. Good facilities - lovely dining room/breakfast terrace and private beach facilities. Good food - would have liked the option to book half board. Too far from centre of Diano Marina - long walk on a busy road to get into the town centre.
The breakfast Room too small
The hotel was well positioned next to the beach and just far enough out of town to be quiet. The staff were very helpful and the room we had was just right. Breakfast was very good and the pool area nice and relaxing. The only real gripe is that when staying in a 4 star hotel and paying a fairly high price you do not expect to have to pay extra for sunbeds and beach towels on the hotels own private beach. At €3.50 for a towel and €19.00 for a sunbed per day this can soon add up. A beach chair and parasol is included in the hotel rate and the sunbeds around the pool are free.
The seaview from our bedroom (we booked a superior with full seaview) was superb. The hotel had a good swimming pool and garden beside the pool. The breakfast was very nice and there was a good choice of quality products. The a la carte restaurant was good. The bedrooms themselves were disappointing. Our superior room was very small and we spent one night in Suite 504 which had a very very limited seaview over the rooftops! Also you have to pay €3.50 per person per day if you wish to hire towels for around the pool/beach.
private beach facility, buffet breakfast, pool area, balcony
the pool area really set this hotel apart from others on the beach. Hotel was ok, expected a little more but was comfortable. Breakfast provided in cost of room was excellent. We arrived at 7pm and the pool and beach area was closed. We expected to be able to have a quick swim after travelling all day so that was disappointing. Also, this hotel is not inexpensive, but they still charge 3.5 euro per pool towel/day/person which I think is not right if you're a guest, as well they charge to lay on a chair on the beach. Felt like we were always being asked for additional money.
Very nice Hotel with excellent service
