Villa Roma Imperiale
Ranked #5 of 43 Hotels in Forte Dei Marmi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 September 2011

Hotel Villa Imperiale is a small and beautiful little hotel hidden away a few streets from Forte dei Marmi's bustling main streets. The villa has a gorgeous garden and relaxing pool area. The staff are extremely friendly and always looking for ways to make our stay even more relaxing. Like all hotels in Forte the prices are quite steep but this is easily one of the nicer places to stay in town.

We stayed 3 nights and absolutely loved the hotel. From the minute we arrived the staff were super efficient, beyond courteous, and probably the best encountered for a long while. Our room was perfect. King sized bed, small terrace, lovely bathroom with sumptuous amenities pack. This is boutique, charming,modern Italy not all singing all dancing flash. They only do breakfast - no lunch or dinner but secured reservations wherever we asked. They sent us to the best beach restaurant for lunch - bit glam for us for sitting on but food spectacular - Anneta. They serve afternoon tea with home made cake, plentiful snacks at 7pm for aperitifs and bed time drinks on return from dinner - all included in our room rate. The turn down staff are more than happy to be turning down your room at 9pm and later as people eat late there an no request was too much and service impeccable.
The pool area is delightful and it is really calm and tranquil but most visitors are out and about in the area. The location is perfect and our bicycles were great - if a little squeaky.
Couldn't recommend it highly enough. Not cheap but worth every penny. Oh and free wifi.

Room Tip: We had a classic deluxe - first floor

To us the Villa Roma Imperiale was like our own private villa but with the luxury of a top class hotel. A perfect place to relax and leave all our cares behind.
Some holiday accommodation does not live up to the marketing type. Villa Roma Imperiale is a gem and far exceeded all our expectations. This is a first class hotel.
All the staff were just lovely - friendly, very helpful and efficient. They made us feel very special. We would like to thank them all for looking after us so well, and putting up with my terrible spoken Italiano!
The food was excellent - breakfast was better than that of a top class hotel. Everything about the hotel is perfect: decor is modern and tranquil, the swimming pool is set in a beautiful garden (a little piece of paradise) and it is a safe place for children.
Our room with veranda was beautiful overlooking the gardens and pool. The whole of the hotel was spotlessly clean and very well looked after.
Access to the facilities of Forte dei Marmi was easy, just a short walk. We would, without reservation, recommend this lovely villa to anyone. We will return.

We have just returned from a vacation in Tuscany, we spent 5 days at Villa Roma Imperiale.
The weather was beautiful, it was a very pleasant stay.
The season at Forte is still quiet in the hotel we felt like the real owners of a villa by the sea.
The hotel has a simple style but very elegant, very refined in detail.
The staff is always smiling and polite, they was able to meet all our needs without being intrusive.
Beautiful pool area, surrounded by a beautiful garden full of flowers.
The breakfast there is a particular hit. It is served in a beautiful veranda overlooking the garden, with classical music in the background. In front of the porch was put an aviary where the birds can go to drink and eat. A haven of peace!
The choice on the buffet is very rich, we were surprised by the variety of fruit offered, from seasonal to all types of tropical fruit.
Forte dei Marmi is not an economic location, neither is this hotel, however, it is definitely a place I would recommend, especially during this season, it’s really romantic!
We thank all the staff of the hotel and we hope to return in September.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms surrounding the pool area

Just returned from a week's stay at this hotel. Over all a pleasant experience - in particular I would highly praise the reception and waiting staff....very pleasant, helpful and couteous.

The room was ok - a bit on the dark side as was the terrace which felt a bit hemmed in by the privacy of the hedging....but not as bad as the rooms on the side of the building where terraces literally 'looked out' on to a wall of high hedge....very dark and dismal looking. The best, of course were those with garden views....but at a much higher price.

In keeping with the rest of Forte dei Marmi, the Villa Roma Imperiale is not a cheap option either to stay or dine. Had one meal only in the hotel and for 2 mains, a half bottle of wine and water....totalled 53 Euros! Portions weren't particularly satisfying either. Breakfast ok - lots of fruit, cakes and bread.

The location of the hotel is about a 15 minutes stroll into the town and on the flat - so quite pleasant. The nearest railway station is 4kms - if you want door to door service, a taxi will set you back 15/20 euros each way....otherwise catch the once an hour Viabus from the Piazza Mateolli @ 3.20 euros return. Easy to access places like Pisa and Lucca (change at Viareggio) and very reasonably prices by train.

By mid September quite a few places are already closing down for the winter, so selection of restaurants a bit more limited - need to check each day, who is open. If you like great pizzas Freddies is the place in the Piazza Garibaldi....and if your budget can stretch the way - Bistrot, on the promenade will do lovely seafood options. 2 mains and a half bottle of wine + water = 100 euros.

If you dont want to pay for your beach access in the centre of the promenade - about a few kms north of the town there is plenty of free beach/access to the sea and some eateries too.

Staying at the VRI has many good features, but there are also some downsides with the location, vis a vis transport (if you dont have your own). If you can, I'd recommend a garden view room with balcony or terrrace.

I chose this hotel for our honeymoon based on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor, and because I wanted to splurge for the "nicest hotel" in Forte dei Marmi. I was disappointed in the extremely small rooms - we had to put our suitcases on the floor and tiptoe around them, the shower was 2x2 feet LITERALLY, there was no bathtub. The grounds were not more special than a $150 Napa B&B, the pool reminded me of my parents' San Fernando Valley backyard. I would recommend finding a hotel with a beach club and restaurant. Yes, the service was very good, the breakfast was quite a spread (for pastry and fruit lovers only), and the 7pm hors devours were impressive. But after staying at many luxury hotels with beautiful grounds, excellent amenities, worldclass service and dining, this one seemed about $500 overpriced. I wish we had just stayed longer at Villa d'Este in Lake Como! Now that was luxury!

This was my second stay at this hotel and yet again wonderful. I do somehow have to adjust my brain to the cost because the rooms were very small and not worth 800 euros a night! But then again you feel at home. Staff were just superb, always happy to help you and with a smile on their face which is always nice. Pool was lovely in the beautiful garden setting. A lot of russians now in resort who seem to think they own the place? Breakfast - lovely. Lunch we ate once there but very overpriced with 20 euros for a small portion of penne pommodoro and when i said i was still hungry got charged an extra 10 euros for a handful of penne. Anyway - wonderful hotel, very worth staying and you feel just at home! especcially with the free tea and cakes at 5 pm and appertifs at 7!!
