“Good hotel for local getaway!”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Me and hubby stayed over on a "date night" and to see a show. The package included dinner at the Araya Rest which is the hotel's restaurant and the food was very good (portions huge so be warned - we had a light lunch and we could not finish) . The rooms are small yes, but they are tastefully decorated, clean and comfy so it suited us perfectly! The breakfast the next morning was a good selection and adequate. The GM greeted us on the way out and he is super friendly and it really added a special personal touch to our stay. I would not hesitate to rebook or recommend this hotel to anybody.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room overlooking the main road. The music at the opposite centre's Billy the Bums...

First off, the rooms are VERY small. Which normally is not a concern if you don't plan on being in the room much. The entrance was very underwhelming, I usually like the hotel feel when you walk into the lobby, but this hotel has one little desk with one person behind it.
It wasn't too bad, but I did expect better, given the location.
The location was great, I love that you walk right onto the piazza, and works for a short stay.

Stayed from 6 to 9 Aug 2013 again in this very nice hotel. Booking and check-in fast and covering all my special requirements (Frequent Guest 6975081). The staff at any place very friendly and helpful. The room (538) well equipped, clean and maintained. The breakfast offers a very broad range of choice, including individual prepared eggs, omelettes etc. I didn't have a opportunity to visit the restaurant - there's a huge choice of any kind of restaurants in Montecasino, starting at the exit of the hotel... The bar offers a broad range of choice, this is a perfect place to relax from challenging business days. Will come back as soon as possible.

Stayed one night for an event nearby.
Check in very good, just a concern about parking. The front of the hotel was packed with cars. No parking upstairs so asked the porter where to park, told to go to the basement. Then had to pay for parking, not happy. Reception fixed this and paid me back.

Used the taxi service at the hotel, run by Europcar. Very friendly, just the driver didn't know the area very well so had to do some directions from the internet.
Breakfast was packed on Sunday morning, be warned, you will wait for 20 min to be seated.

Great location and friendly staff, get a room facing the square. Lots to do in casino and restaurants without driving anywhere. If you're on business the ideal spot, for wife and kids to be entertained while you work.

Room Tip: Face the Square on the 5th floor.

Stayed over for business on 2 occasions now. Fantastic vibe and nice sized rooms. Great entertaining in Monte Casino ranging from Theater,Casino, Restaurants, Shops and a bird Garden. Lots of local attractions nearby.

Staff is super friendly and always willing to assist.

Room Tip: Take a birds eye view of the area by jumping on the Monte Casino - Hyundai Baloon!

Had a couple of issues regarding my room but I think if you choose one on another floor (see below) you may get lucky.
