“Great with kids”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

I tell you, we are becoming big Novotel fans. The few activities they have for the kids are great. Pool, ping pong, games, xbox etc. The rooms were spacious and clean. Very nice stay. Easy on off access from highway.


We had one problem with the AC not working and the windows wouldn't open to let air in. Someone came to repair about 7pm and it worked for a bit. About 1am I had to go to the front desk and let them know the repair didn't last. It was cooler in the hall way than it was in the room. They were kind enough to help us move to another room at that hour. It was a heat wave in July, so it was a big deal.

Great for Kids, two adjoining rooms. Pool was great, plenty for kids to do and eat for fussy kids.
Location a bit out of town, we hired a car, but be warned...do not drive into town as cars are not allowed in certain streets. Unless you can read Italian then you too might get hit with a few fines. Staff were very helpful, ask for Giada, she speaks English very well and can't help enough. Rooms seemed to be recently updated, although Air Con is not like usual. Would stay again

We booked a 4 beds room for one night. After arriving late to the Ancona port, we arrived to the hotel around 23.00, rather tired and anxious for our kids. The receptionist was fantastic, spoke excellent english. The room was spacious, very comfortable, exactly what we needed. The restaurant was closed but the bar had good options like pizza etc. The breakfast buffet had a much better variety that we anticipated and overall the hotel was premium. excellent for travellers and good to explore the area.

Tips: the toasted sandwich was dry like paper, avoid the eggs in breakfast. Choose lemon cake and pack a bathing suit for a quick swim in the pool. Parking is safe and controlled. Excellent for small kids

great value and a lovely swimming pool to come back to after a day sightseeing. Breakfast was excellent and service was friendly. The only downside was travel in and out of the city centre which was a bit of a hassle by bus - wish we'd had a car.

Nice out of town hotel, food OK but expensiver, pool great for the kids, asked for non smoking interconnecting rooms, had to be moved as one of the rooms although on a non smoking floor smelt of smoke..
Really helpful reception staff, great at recommending restaurants and booking them forus.
Good base for going into town and visiting surrounding area.

Lovely to be able to come back and have a swim..
