We stayed in the Miramare for 2 nights before our cruise on the Celebrity Equinox. The hotel is located 5 minutes from the station and close to a handful of restaurants and bars. The reception, lounge and hallways are a bit tired and as previously mentioned the hall lights on floors 2 and 3 dont work. Room 23, on the second floor was clean, large, bright and reasonably well furnished with a wardrobe, table and chairs and a fridge. The queen size bed was firm and you could watch the small flatscreen tv from there. There are over 500 channels, all in the Italian language on the tv. There is a clean shower room with it's own window.
The great bonus of this room is that the french windows open onto a small balcony and you have great sea views. There is an air conditioning unit and all the windows are double glazed. This is a bonus at the weekends as the promenade outside is lively and noisy. There is also a safe in the wardrobe.
The breakfasts are fairly basic but the coffees from the machine are first class. The reception is manned 24 hours a day and the staff are helpful and friendly. They insist you leave your hotel key at reception but will look after your bags after the 10am checkout. They will also arrange a taxi to transfer you to the port. This is important as our ship was docked a couple of miles from the hotel. The taxi cost 5 euros per person and dropped us yards from the cruise checkin.
We dined in the hotel restaurant with friends on one evening. There are inside and outside tables. The menus is mainly fish and pastas and the food and wine were reasonably priced. Some dishes were good and others disappointed.
Overall this a clean well located 3 star hotel which is ideal for 1 or 2 nights pre cruise accommodation at a fair price.
