Hotel Franceschi
Ranked #21 of 43 Hotels in Forte Dei Marmi
Reviewed 12 September 2009

I recently stayed at this hotel with friends having received a very good deal via tripadvisor. While the hotel is immaculate, central to the resort and in a very quiet location with resonably friendly staff the costs of the drinks from the bar shocked me. I have stayed in many three, four and five star hotels (remember this is a three star) but I have never been charged 20 euros for a gin and tonic, while my friend was charged 15 euros for a vodka and coke. There is no bar menu so if you just put the drinks on the room as I normally do, you end up with a v ery scary bill at the end of your holiday. Big tip to the owners of this hotel is to be transparant and have a bar menu. Tip to travellers, dont drink here unless you are happy to spend double the cost of what these drinks would be in town.

With the warmth of a private home, Villa Franceschi in tony Forte dei Marmi is a wonderful spot for a stay. Hotel accommodations are simple but comfortable, public rooms cosy and spacious. The kitchen is good but hotel is only a short two block walk from the excellent Bistrot restaurant. Rates are reasonable making the Franceschi an excellent choice for visitors to this attractive seaside resort.
