Beautiful room immediately overlooking the Med. Very quiet We would say forget the dining room. We ate dinner there one night and found our meal forgetful at best. Breakfast was very basic, muffins, and cold cereal. No fresh fruit, nothing hot.
location, panoramic view, access to the beach, sea water pool
The hotel owners and staff were nice and attentive. The location is very good in case you want to go to beaches in Liguria and in the French Côte d'Azur. Rooms were spacious for a small familiy and very clean. Neither the hotel's small beach or the swimming pool were appropriate for children under 5 years old.
we only stayed for one night, but the location was amazing, and the staff very friendly.
Friendly helpful staff and owners perfect location , brillient pool,town very near,lovely squares to eat in,and has very large indoor pool for out of season -- great place - the rooms are functional and clean.
The staff No sand
seaview, food at restaurant, friendly family running the place the description of the bathroom in the booking form was correct: the showers in the smaller rooms are tiny.
I like the location.
The athmosphere of this family run hotel was excellent. We really felt welcome. For the beach holiday the location is perfect including easy access (by car) the neighbouring cities. Very good fresh Tuna in the hotel restaurant!!!! Wireless internet was not too reliable but worked fair. Sound isolation wery weak between the rooms.
Position of hotel. Helpfulness of staff
The staff was friendly and helpful. Most spoke some English; one or two spoke good English, which was useful given our meagre Italian. There were good restaurants in the vicinity. We walked for many kilometres -- by choice -- and found the location very convenient for our interests.
There was no active bar but plenty available in the surrounding area.
Perfect hotel location. Easy to reach. Car parking posibility. Loudness from the hall in front of the room. Bad bathroom.
The hotel was very central to our needs.the family that run it were quite helful. Felt the hotel was in need of a refurbishment very tatty although as clean as could be in all areas.
Great room. Very Spacious and modern. Staff was very helpful and spoke english. Near to one of the main shopping streets. Many good restaurants nearby. Air condition, mini bar and safe in the room. Breakfast was open until 10 am but if you came after 9 it was a bit short of food. Be aware of the mosquitos if you choose to enjoy a drink in the back yard in the evening.
Nice big room. Friendly staff excellent location but best of all free off street parking
The Hotel is great for the price. The parking at the front of your room is an added bonus since there is no distance to load your car... and the showers, super nice multiple style walk in type. Its the only reason i'm writing a review - the showers were great...
Visit monaco, Nico, Sanremo
Car parking, ideal location for sea and historic centre The bed was extremely hard to our taste.
free parking, far away from the city. it is in the middle of nowhere. there was no other activities. only bed and breakfast. You eat the breakfast in a cellar. expensive on weekends.
Helpful and friendly staff Difficult to find without sat nav directions
The hotel is very clean, staff is friendly,very close to the beach, fair price for minibar and food. sometimes poor wifi signal on my room
the room was great and the parking also!
The location of the hotel was very good and the fact that the car park was just outside of the room.
Motel for trevellers with a car, easy access to the village and sea coast lobby is very small and poor, room space rather limited
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.
During my stay at the Locanda del Mar, I enjoyed the cleanliness, the location (near the beach), and the hotel staff was very friendly.
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
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 hotel close to the beach. Very friendly and serviceminded family who owns the hotel. Good value for money
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
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 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.
Actually nothing and moved to another hotel for 2 days! I wouldn't describe this hotel as a 4 star hotel more as self catered apartments and the building doesn't appear fully finished! The so called bar is situated by reception and has no ambience with only 2 seats. The food in the restaurant was poor at best and despite staying half board decided to eat elsewhere. Even breakfast failed to be provided with any degree of quality and cold coffee!
new and clean
Location and modern features Hot water did not last more than 10 minutes. This does clearly makes the hotel over rated – not four stars. The hotel staff knew of this issue, and stated that a new central hot water system would come in November.
Nothing Breakfast was really awful.
It was close to the rally centre The internet was not free,Very difficult to find parking
The stuff didn't understand noting even in italian language, the hotel is very old.Breakfast is three kinds of brioches.Only one good thing that is situated in the center.
Staff were friendly, but unfortunately they don t speak English (only Italian, Spanish and Chineese - most of the people working there are chinese). The hotel has a very good location (the beach is just across the street) and it is 2 blocks from the city centre. The breakfast was very poor, only various croissants. We couldn t get a tea for the breakfast, only cappucino.
The photos available on the website don't do justice to the rooms, in reality the rooms are very spacious and quite modern. A quadruple room meant an appartment with no kitchen, with air conditioning and TV in each room. The rooms were very clean. The hotel is 2 minutes away from the beach. Breakfast was very poor, make sure you have something else to eat afterwards. The staff does not speak English. Bathroom was very narrow, a larger man would have difficulty going in the shower.
breakfast was too minimal, penurious staff was drunk and dirty at recepcio ( dirty,dark fingernails ) smelly costume..............to park difficult terrible place breakfast was too minimal, penurious staff was drunk and dirty at recepcio ( dirty,dark fingernails ) smelly costume..............to park difficult
bathroom flooded when i had a shower.
nice weather,nice town,goof friends the breakfast
good location, surroundings, free parking, close to the sea not all of the staff speaks and understands english
The atmosphere of the hotel and price No
bathroom and brekfast is good
Too far from the station. It took more than 30 minutes on foot. The bath tub was so small that I have never seen before and its cleaning was not enough.
very clean bathroom, modern appliances in the bathroom (shower eg), staff was helpful and friendly the room was a bit small, the hotel is rather expensive
Polite staff, comfort living Renew numbers, add air conditioners, add new equipment
Spacious room, walking distance from the city center, parking facilities, nice environment.
Very pleasant staff, breakfast was a treat for kids, the decor is very charming, old world European, close to the sea, not far from center
Beautiful big room. Delicious breakfast. Extremely nice Villa with a balcony. Very well located.
extremely helpful, friendly front desk. very clean, and very pleasant environment . good location, easy access to market, beach, rest. it would have been nice to have cable tv, but not a deal breaker !
Luxurious hotel (didn't visit the spa area), few guests and very attractive "2 nights for 3" price package in the off-season Quite some noise from an event at the beach with loudspeakers reached the terrace and pool area all weekend (daytime). The pool restaurant was too expensive (pasta dish - no sea-food - 23 Euro!).
if something to mention - some areas could get some rework for a 5 star.
The position, the service, the pool, the decor and the valet parking and the fact that it met my request for a quiet room
A bit outdated, but well maintained old luxury hotel. Very beautifully located with a great view on the sea. Spaceous room, good breakfast buffet. the waiters are arrogant and unfriendly
Excellent private beach and terrace, air-conditioner working well, cleaning staff tidies up room regularly. Great location, just 5 minutes walk from the main shopping street.
First class hotel, all done up in marble and Italian charm with service to match. It wasn't in walking proimity to anything besides the beach. Unless I missed it, and If that's a negative). But the beach and pool are absolutely gorgeous.
Location is excellent, the service as well.
The hotel setting is glorious overlooking the sea and the pool area if fantastic. Having no iron or ironing facilities on a 5 day stay I only had ironed clothes for three of them and it cost a lot of money to have them done by staff.
The grandeur of the Hotel. It is very classy and chic. Some staff was very good, friendly and professional. Some staff, especially at the restaurant at the pool was absolutely not suitable for a 5 star hotel.
The hotel is an excellance envirnoment, friendly, genuin interacting with customers and on top of that it is a pradice over looking the lovely medetirenien. Thanks for every body. I should be honest and fair to say, nothing is negetive.
The Spa and the waiters/bartenders/room service. The rooms are disgusting. The furniture is old, worn, and smelly. The wallpaper is peeling off the walls. The carpet on the stairs is worn thru. The woodwork is broken and worn. The doors are scratched and in disrepair. The bathrooms are moldy. The ceiling tiles are displaced. The bathroom doors are coming apart at the bottoms. The wall plaster is in disrepair. The pool area is moldy. The pool bed cushions are moldy. The pool is horrible. The pool is missing large sections of tile. The wood decking near the pool is uneven and in disrepair. The paint on the exterior of the building is peeling and the upper floor is missing large areas of paint. The hotel is disgusting. DO NOT STAY HERE! FILTHY, DIRTY, DISGUSTING.
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
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
Hotel molto ben posizionato e confortevole.
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.
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.
Friendly and helpful staff. Expensive for what it was compared to other places we stayed. No onsite parking and getting any kind of parking nearby was a major problem.
The ease with which we found it, the friendlyness of the staff, and the super breakfast. The room was adiquate but the bathroom very small and noisy.
Clean and easy to get to. Breakfast was very simple and nice. Did not have our reservations correct and so had to get another room.
very friendly staff noisy rooms
nice and sweet hotel which has everything I need in the small room and with walkable distance to the centre. hotel staff is very helpful. it would be better if there is a internet access.
The staff are nice and helpful,breakfast is sufficient,clean and comfortable bed. No internet access,the phone does not work,no english channel on the TV
Very clean and quite Room decoration is more for a two star than three.Breakfast quite poor
location on sea and view superb-staff very nice
The location and view were phenomenol. The price of our room could not be beat and the breakfast was lovely - especially compared to the hotels we stayed at in Paris and the French Riviera. Our only regret is that we weren't able to plan more time for our stay in Sanremo. We would love to return again and would definitely choose Maristella for our hotel. We were saddened a bit by the rundown condition of the hotel but fully understand the cost of maintaining waterfront property and it would not prevent us from recommending it or returning. Our room was very clean and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff more than outweighed the exterior's appearance.
Good location, Nice room with sea view and large balcony. Continental breakfast was the same every day.
Sea view room
hotel maristella is worth the money you spend,
The position and the balcony. The room was very dull and the furniture was old.
on the edge of San Remo, so quiet location, but not too far to walk to town. Room small and bathroom small I would describe this hotel as a genteel old lady who had fallen on hard times. It could be great, but very old fashioned, no evening restuarant facilities, very basic and a bit shabby, but the price reflects this
The position and setting are beautiful,private parking,good powerful shower Furniture and decoration is rather tatty and tired
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very decent breakfast and excellent waiter service. Comfortable and spacious room. Convenient location and only a short walk to the beaches and town. Although the security of the hotel was generally excellent, I was slightly unnerved to notice that our passports, which we had left with reception upon our arrival, were stored openly on a book-case behind the reception desk (we would have expected these to have been stored a little more securely!) Apart from that everything was absolutely excellent.
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.
Marvellous view to beach and see. Rooms are quite small.
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
Homely and friendly WiFI connection is availalbe in the lobby only
It was central and easy access to Beach etc Having to pay to park the car
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.
Very nice and friendly girls on the reception. Breakfast asortiments.
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.
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)
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.
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!
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).
Great location overlooking the ocean.
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
The view of the ocean from our room
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 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.
Central location, great view from our room
Close to old City. Limited car parking
Very good personal, good location and free parking
The beds were good. TV Channel selection was poor. Shower water pressure was terrible and bathroom was not clean smelling. Power access was limited in the room.
Great staff. Room was nice and cool. Good price for location. Located on 4th floor and up with unreliable elevator. Only issue we had.
The hotel staff were friendly, the hotel was very clean & in a good location. The hotel were not able to provide an Iron, the bathroom & shower were very small. The bed was very uncomfortable.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was very central close to the beach and also the shopping. The view especially from the breakfast area was very nice. No the reviews were very accurate so there was no negative shocks or surprises.
Beautiful location with view of the sea. Very close to the downtown shopping area. friendly staff and very good breakfast. The shower stall was cramped and inconvenient.
It was very central to every thing It said that there was parking available, what it actually meant was parking in the ordinary street
Service and lokation was very good The breakfast was not the best, you have to ask for more bread and orange, make a tabel with orange, bread, a coffemacine, so the guest self can take what there want.
The owners or mgt. of the Hotel are very good people and provide you with good information and attention The decoration of the room is really very good Shower is too small ( 1 square metter ), in the Suite Orchidea ; Parking is Difficult
Charming hotel, friendly staff but not 4 star hotel. Needs "facelift"!!
Everything was great :)
Small, intimate hotel. Excellent breakfast. Rooms have names, not number what makes you feel like home.
Soaker tub, friendly staff, decor Parking was limited and difficult to enter.
safe free of charge. refrigerator in the room. sofa for a kid small pool in the open air (and his location was not coinside with the ad that we saw on TV: not in the roof or last floor). very noise outside (so, don't forget to close the window)
location,bed comfort too old facilities in noway a 4 star hotel
Friendly and helpful staff. Willing to store bags when we arrived early. Excellent restaurant suggestion. Exceptional breakfast. Public rooms more characterful than our room. The hotel does have other rooms with more luxe.Note, about 20 steps up to the front door. Porter available once you get inside! Very convenient to train station. Quite a bit of road noise. Fortunately, we could close doors to inside porch and bathroom with A/C on. Just a fact of life in an older hotel right on the main street.
friendly and helpful staff poor coffee at breakfast
The staff were very friendly and mad us feel very welcome. The breakfast was excellent. The bathrooms could use some upgrades
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.
Very good value. Difficult to find. Needs map.
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.
Very friendly and helpful staff - excellent value - breakfast on the terrace was delightful with viewws across the valley.
staff ready to help you, Close to the bus station and ferry from Lussina, excellent rooms, quite place moscitos in nice garden
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 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.
Clean and pleasant room, cleaned each day. Difficult car access to parking. Too many sweet cakes etc for breakfast!
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.
Friendly and helpful service. Cleanliness and convenience. Value for money. Nothing
The hotel ist situated comfortably close to one of the beaches, the old harbour, the yacht harbour and the ancient city centre. The staff is friendly and helps whre it can. Sometimes there is nobody at the reception desk. In this case you have to call at the adjacent restaurant. The breakfast buffet is good. From the restaurant you have a nice view to the beach. The rooms are very noisy, both from inside the house and from the street, which is one of the main streets of San Remo with much traffic all night long. There is only a very small parking place at the hotel (fee € 15,00) and it is very difficult to find parking space near the hotel.
The placement in front of tehe sea, te view over the city and the bay, the old style of the hotel in general, and also the personel. The night illumination of the room. It is too cold
Location. Breakfast service end at 09:45, a little too early for people on holiday and with jet lag.
Free Parking As all hotel rooms in Italy, the beds are back breaking hard.
No gym, rooms a bit over valued for the price
It was staying like in museum. Excellent place for relaxing.
A very good welcome having stayed before.Further improvement in the quality and service of breakfast and dinner.Sea viiew room with balcony was excellant. NO
Nice sea view. Poor breakfarst
This hotel was quite old and would have been splendid in it's day, it seemed rather eccentric but in a nice way, so if you like something a little bit out of the ordinary and not a big chain hotel then I would happily recommend this property. The front desk staff were lovely and upgraded us to a sea view room. The bathroom was large and well equipped. We enjoyed our night here.
