“Great stay”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

The Reception staff were really great offering advice on parking (garage under hotel) and giving option of room with a balcony overlooking the sea. Great breakfast.
Not sure why this hotel recieves bad reviews?? Only stayed one night travelling through to Southern Italy.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a corner balcony overlooking the sea.

I just had to create a review after seeing the previous review !!!!..... We visited in September 2011 & it was our second time to the Hotel Waldorf Palace. I have lost count of the number of times I have been to Cattolica but I would say over 20 since 1981 !....

The Hotel is VERY modern & VERY clean, Breakfast is FRESH everyday.....I forgot to book a room on the lower floor (my husband does not like lifts - the next day after arriving we asked if we could move rooms - it was of NO trouble.....the beaches are the best I have ever seen......oh yes & your comment about the staff in particualar the manager.....well my son had a bad accident in a local restuarant & he had to go to hospital....the manager of the hotel drove us there in his car !...he helped to book us in as we do not speak Itailian.....once back from the hospital all the staff asked how my son was....even staff who were not presant in the hotel at the time !!!

Hoping to go back next year !.......

we wanted a 4 stars hotel, for a family holyday, but we have been very disappointed by this one : very expensive(917 euros for 5 nights) for a limit 3 stars hotel!! bad prestations, old furniture, bad quality of the bathrooms, far from the city center, poor beach, very very noisy room, bad breakfast, and A HUGE BUILDING right in front of the swimming pool!!!!! pooooooooooor poooooooooooor prestations, don't go!
only positive point : very nice girls at the reception (eventhough the ceo never said hello to us...poor education)

Dear Sir
My name is Edgardo Nonni, I am your "CEO with poor education".
Fortunately, in 470 b.c. (before Jesus Christ),
Socrates wrote the paradox "knowing not to know", so I can say thath I'm in good company.
I'm really sorry to have disregarded the legitimate expectations of your holiday. But I do not share your thoughts, so I am going to argue the following points:

"very expensive(917 euros for 5 nights) for a limit 3 stars hotel"
- 1 My prices are high in high season, my prices are lower in low season. By virtue of my large capacity receptive, and to fill my big hotel, I am forced to apply the lowest prices of the competition!

"bad prestations, old furniture, bad quality of the bathrooms "
- 2 The hotel is constantly restructuring and from 2005 to 2010, during the winter time (when the hotel is close) we had been used the following renovations:
-2005 all bedrooms renovated
- 2006 All bathrooms renovated
-2007, renewed all the exterior-face of the hotel
- 2008 the hotel has been adapted to European regulations on safety (smoke detectors, fire protection ladders, fire doors, safety signs....)
- 2009 all the common room hotel has been renovated
- 2010 all the coridors of the rooms have been renovated
I believe that our hotels can not be called pooooooooooorr!!

"bad breakfast"
- 3 - Help me please to improve my breakfast and I suggest something was missing. Perhaps missed....;
5 different types of meats? | 3 different types of cheese? | Eggs? | Bacon? Sausages?
12 different types of cakes? Chocolate cost? 7 different types of jam? Honey? croissants stuffed with apples?, cream?, jam?, chocolate? with candied fruit? 4 different types of corn flakes?|2 types of fruit syrup? |fresh fruit salad? 2 different types of yougurt?
5 different types of bread ?...etc.. etc..

"...and A HUGE BUILDING right in front of the swimming pool!!!!!"
- 4 - Just look at pictures of my hotel and found that the Waldorf Palace Hotel is not a "huge building right"

"very expensive(917 euros for 5 nights) for a limit 3 stars hotel!!"
- 5 She had not spent 917 euros, you had spent 880 euros for a 4 bedded room, but she was only 3 person, also you
hade chosen a room with a sea view that has a supplement, you've spent a little more because your mistake!

"far from the city center, poor beach"
- 6 The hotel is located in the tourist resort, opposite the sea and between the nautic club and the aquarium water "Le Navi"
The Waldorf Palace hotel is only 200 meters from the beginning of the pedestrian zone, and 1.20 km from the heart of Cattolica.
It 'a new area where there is a bit of greenery and parking facilities
Please check google map, to understand that I not tell lies

I am truly prepared to listen to complaints from my guests, because they gave me a few tips that you can solve problems of many, but I do not understand why she should lie so free. I do not understand its purpose!

I apologize again for not having spoken to you , but my problem is that I do not speak the French, which is why the pretty
girls (one of them is my wife) at the reception of endeavor for me, and is absolutely false that I don't greet!
When you speak badly of my hotel, and remains anonymous, because you are not signed, it runs the risk of being poorly
educated (like me). I beg you not to look like me!
Why you would two too many like me in this world so happy!

When they say that the hotel is dirty, I feel dirty my self
When they say the hotel is old, I feel old my self
When they say that the hotel is bad, I feel bad my self
For me because my job is very important, and is really a big part of my life.
I'm sorry to had made you angry.

I appeal to all readers of trip advisor and I invite you to attend my hotel, because the Waldorf Palace Hotel Cattolica,
has great value for money!

The Director
Edgardo Nonni

Reviewed 7 August 2009

We stayed there for about ten days during the month of July and can still not understand where all these good reviews come from. Firstly, the breakfast had a very low quality. From what we could see, the leftovers from the breakfast were then used in the appetizers for lunch and dinner. None of the courses could be described as tasty and this feeling is something we noticed to have in common with other guests at the hotel. We got quickly tired of the limited variety of food and appetizers. During the lunch and dinner, we usually had to sit for two hours to finish our meal, because it took so much time for the food to come and go. Even this experience was something our fellow stayers said to have in common with us. Secondly, the hotel rooms were never properly cleaned, during our whole stay the floor was never vacuumed. The rooms were very worn out.

In our opinion, the hotel needs an effective change in its cuisine and an investment in renovating and reviving the hotel and its amenities. At the moment, its 4th star is very misleading.
