The Vittoria is one of a small chain of up-market hotels in Pesaro and Urbino, including the Savoy where we had booked a suite for four days. On arrival, as no suite was available there (do any exist?), we were transferred to its posh sister up the road. We were offered their best suite for the same price, so we gladly accepted. (We later discovered that its rate is nearly three times higher than what we had paid.) It has sea views and a small balcony overlooking the Piazzale della Liberta. Not a huge room, but elegant, with a comfortable seating area, a good king-size bed, Jacuzzi bath with power-shower and no less than three TV’s – including one in the bathroom! Apparently Pavarotti slept in this room, and though the bed would have accommodated him, the bath would certainly not!
The building is a small converted palazzo, dwarfed by two huge, ugly blocks on either side (one of which is the Hotel Metropol), but it adopts a lofty exclusivity, with its elegant balconies and curved steps leading to a small outdoor swimming pool at the front. In April it was quiet and, frankly, understaffed. The receptionists were friendly, keen to please and spoke excellent English. But the bar area and restaurant were dark and deserted for most of the time, and it was difficult to even get a drink. Twice, when we asked in desperation, the receptionist stood in for barman. On other occasions we simply gave up. There are plenty of good eating/drinking options in town.
Breakfast (not included in the rate) is the typical Italian cold spread – in other words, nothing to justify the hotel’s five-star status – so again, after the first day we took our custom elsewhere. But we enjoyed our stay here – and not just because of the bargain upgrade. This is certainly one of the classier options in Pesaro, in a prime location.
