“Hotel is tired and needs some tender loving care”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

positives:
- nice views from the rooms (upper floors) and breakfast room (top floor)
- good location
- rooms are a good size
- staff tried to be helpful

negatives:
- hallways and rooms smelled a little musty
- air conditioning did not work well (and was not even switched on initially despite assurances to the contrary by the front desk until they realized I was correct)
- parking is on the street, not a problem unless it is market day
- the hotel needs some renovations as evidenced by the state of the carpets and walls, and the very dated room furnishings.
- breakfast buffet selection was limited

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2011

We stayed in this hotel as a part of a parish pilgrimage (visited Eucharistic Miracle at St Francis Church a few blocks away.
This is a modern hotel but had a great Italian feel - not just glass & steel, but stone, marble, statues in the lobby, etc.
The room was amazingly large and comfortable. Only challenge was finding a power outlet - not unusual in Europe (this is why we carry an European extension cord).
Separate bathroom was also spacious and nice.
Dinner and breakfast (both excellent) was in top floor dining room with great view of the city and distant mountains.
When I asked the desk manager where I could do internet, he pointed to his desk and said "Use my computer." After about 30 minutes we finished and asked how much we owed him, he just shrugged and said "No Charge!"
The festival for Pentecost was underway and there was a street fair just a block away which we strolled through. They had one street lit gloriously with a lighted series of arches - very beautiful.
I'm not sure why Lanciano is not on every Christian's must see list in Italy.
Google it and put it on your list for next time your in that neck of the woods!
As far as this hotel, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it for anyone traveling to Lanciano.

Room Tip: The higher you are, the better the view
