“Short stay in Tropea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Spent the night in Tropea. What a quaint village! This hotel was clean, friendly, located close to the water and the marina. They have a restaurant with pretty good food. The place is 60's modern and is spacious and airy. It was a near astounding bargain as well. The old village of Tropea is way up on a hill overlooking the water. It is a bit of a hike up the stairs to the town but worth it. Lots of shops and activities. The train station is at the top of the hill. Should you choose to walk, go straight through the village and down the stairs. Otherwise take a taxi.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side have a better view.

We weren't very well prepared for Tropea and got a bit spooked following Via Marina all the way down from the station, instead of going through to the old town and taking the stairs. The hotel is actually quite well located once you get there although it seems in the middle of nowhere, and was great value (we seemed to be there in the cheapest period). 5 minute walk to the beach, ten minutes to restaurants and everything else up the stairs, and while quite basic it's also very clean and friendly. No air conditioning though.

My husband and I spent two weeks at the hotel in May and had a great time. The hotel was very clean and the bedroom was a good size with balcony and adequately sized en-suite. The breakfast was good and the staff were polite and helpful. We booked direct with the hotel and they also arranged the transfer from and to Lamezia airport. The location is good, close to the beach and port and set back from the main road but the only disadvantage is that to get to the town up on the cliff you have to go up a fairly steep stairway so the location would not be suitable for everyone. We would defintely stay at this hotel again.

While Tropea is wonderful, stay away from La Pineta at all costs. My husband and I had booked an apartment from a website (homlidays.com), which turned out to be a disaster. The owner of the apartment was connected in some way with La Pineta hotel, and offered us a room there instead of the apartment. We saw the rooms but didn't stay. The hotel resembles a 1950's style concrete Soviet apartment block and is about the most depressing place you could imagine. The location sucks. The hotel is nowhere near the charming old town up on the cliff, or by the beaches down below. Avoid it like the plague.
