“Pescara Gem”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

I was very pleased with the hotel's proximity to the bus terminal...no last minute panic and an easy stroll with luggage.. Breakfast was good, the only negative is the 'juice'. I had what I'd call orange drink, something that I commonly find at hotel breakfasts.. It was a very adequate buffet and starts @ 0700.

In the evening, Wifi was weak and often got cut off or all my mail came back, undelivered (high use period?).

The day staff did an excellent job of printing out bus schedules for two day trips. All I had to do was buy the tickets and choose my going and return times from numerous options. With this kind of help history and all of the other positives, I would return.

The hotel is ideally situated for walks to the city and to the beach. The airport is only 10 minutes away by taxi.

For the price category the hotel has everything one needs. Staff are helpful and reliable (taxi booked for 5 am arrived dead on time).

The hotel is centrally located, cheap parking nearby, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is perfect, good coffee (even in Italy not always the case in hotels). Rooms are basic, but OK. The only negative point I had is the missing soundproofing of the rooms (one could hear the neighbors talk).

We had read the reviews and weren't expecting the 'Palace' however had we known we would never have booked! Travelling with 2 adults and 2 children the quad room is 4 single beds and adults feet hang over the end which makes it hard for children to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night  due to having no space to get through. 

It was relatively clean but the floor was gritty, the toilet roll holder broken, and towels terrible. The professed air conditioning only operates when the temperature outside is above a certain amount (we weren't told what that was) but in the 2 nights we were there, didn't have air conditioning either night. Our room heated up during the day and you couldn't cool it down with no air con. With the window open at night to try to catch some of the breeze there is a lot of noise, people, traffic, flight path, etc and sleep was difficult! 

The staff were friendly and helpful, parking easy at the public car park although someone has to be up and down to renew the parking ticket at 8am each day.

Breakfast was ok - but nothing to write home about. Handy location to beach and main street just a 5 / 10 minute walk.

With little sleep over the last 2 nights I can't wait to get to the next hotel.

Room Tip: Not sure there is one

have just returned and could not fault the cleanliness of the whole hotel and the rooms. We had one twin booked and one single (4ft bed) which are both comfortable rooms. Generous sized single. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much. Great for walking both to the shops and beach.

My husband and I stayed here with my brother and his wife last year. My husband booked this place as their website described something very nice and comfortable looking..... well wasn't that a LIE! We arrived and were completely shocked, it was NOTHING like the website at all. This place is old and dingey, the rooms are so small we could hardly fit our luggage in there. The beds were atrocious - we could feel every spring digging into our backs, our bathroom was still dirty and the service was very average. We were lucky that we had driven all the way from Milan, so we were exhausted and therefore actually could sleep on those terrible beds. If it wasn't for our exhaustion we would have found another hotel.

We certainly would never stay here again. Pescara is a beautiful place, this hotel isn't!

Well this is the place for you. Unfortunately some of the staff are also trapped in this time warp. The breakfast is limited, with a scary looking waiter. our air conditioning didnt work and the solution we were first offered was open the windows for fresh air in 39 degrees. Thankfully we were moved, but avoid it if you can
