Residence Arco Antico

Reviewed 7 September 2012

Located near the temple of Apollo in the center of old town, the apartment was very convenient - walking access to ruins, the puppet theatre, beach / inlet, coastal walk, the Piazza di Athena and grocery store(s).

No wifi which really sucked - even though it said it did have wifi. You could get it if you sat out the front in the alley, but not in the hotel. Weird. Anyway, Aircon blew loads of musty old air, tv didn't work and the room was generally not very pleasant - a step up from a hostel, I would say - with more security.

About an hours walk from the necropolis in the modern center - just keep in mind.

Fine all in all, but I'd really look around to see if I could get a nicer digs for my money next time.

If only we could have stayed longer.

Staff - just a wonderful friendly, happy young man at reception. When he wasn't there he wasn't too far away. Just a quick call and he was back as a flash.

Apartment - everything you would need. We booked an apartment for 2 people and we had kitchen. lounge and dining. Bedroom and bathroom so plenty of room to keep us happy for 4 days. The room was clean but the floor could have done with a good scrub.

We were there in Aug and the streets come alive at night...so much entertainment happening and people everywhere taking strolls. Its the summer break in Italy so everyone was on holidays and the streets were full. Our apartment overlooked the street (which is closed to transport at night) but once the windows were shut you couldn't really compain about the noise.

All in all a wonderful stay and would defintely recommend.

Oh and since your in the area take the bus (from the train station ) to Fontane Bianche...a beautiful beach...stunning water
