Since I was researching a possible stay at Castello di Montegiove (the 800 year old historical preserved and restored CASTLE and town of Montegiove, located -- not surprisingly - in the actual town of Montegiove UMBRIA, Italy), I think folks can understand why the paid ads and general confusion in internet search for this HOTEL in a different region - Le Marche -was making it really hard for trip planning on the internet. They are over 150 miles apart (240 km.) causing confusion.
The medieval town of Montegiove is on the edge of Umbria near Tuscany, one hour north of Rome on the slower regional train. Confirming this part of the logistics was made difficult by the seeming conflicting information for two places, one old and one newer, on Trip Advisor when planning travel and transportation for our train and car plans. Fano is on the Adriatic Coast using very different trains, roads, etc.
I understand this hotel changed its name (to the same name as the original and separately owned castle in the town of Montegiove) in the mid 2000's and before that this hotel in Fano was called Villa Hagemann.
I am very happy that this hotel in Fano, Le Marche, has lots of nice comments. I am giving this 4 stars just so I do not impact their score. This post is just to help folks like me plan trips and avoid frustration. If somebody is going to Fano on the far east coast instead of trying to be near Orvieto, Cortona, Umbrian and Tuscan sites, then that is great to check out.
I can't seem to find a place on Trip Advisor to make this comment that should help both guests of the actual Castello di Montegiove in Montegiove, Umbria, and this hotel in Fano under different ownership know how to tell them apart.
Maybe a place for comments in the future on the "Maps and Directions" tab instead of a review space would help? I just know the obviously confusing names on trip advisor made planning my own trip more difficult.
Happy Italian travels to all, either in Umbria or the Just be sure to zoom out on the map and call the correct number and get on the right train or car rental site. :)
