The hotel is located on the city center and within walking distance of all the attractions, check in was very easy and the lady very welcoming, in fact all the staff were great including the gentleman at the breakfast. The place is very clean, very organized and the room is exactly what we saw on the pictures and very comfortable.... More

I was very happy with my stay in La Grotta. It is a bit of a hike getting from the bus stop, up the hill with your luggage, that would be my only complaint. One you get to the hotel you have a central location with easy access to all the sights on Mr. Titiano. The rooms like the entire... More

Location great, beds great staff great but with paper thin walls the room was too noisy. Early in the evening, before dinner, we had to contend with the next rooms constant TV noise, but even with ear plugs the snoring from the next room woke my wife. I woke at a different time and had to put in my ear... More

I don't actually believe the phrase "the customer is always right" working in the service industry myself in the past. However, neither do I believe a host should argue with the guest and then walk away from them saying "bye" when being asked a question. This is what happened with us. It seemed like such as inconvenience that we were... More

Very nice hotel. Clean, modern, right in the center of the old town, and the staff were helpful and friendly. Would of given 5 instead of 4 if they had a courtesy golf car to pick up from the parking lot to the hotel, ( I saw that other hotels in San Marino center had this service). Walking through the...

I only stayed one night but really enjoyed my stay. It's right in the heart of San Marino - a bit of a climb from the bus station but doable. My room was clean and modern. It didn't have a view, but I think I chose a cheaper room - no problem for me. I was out walking around most... More

You can't get better for the views. The rooms are very large by European standards. Everything you need is provided. The bathroom is adequate with the big plus of having a stand alone shower. That is no bath to climb in and out at great discomfort. Beds rather firm but better than the other way around. Reception was very efficient... More

We had a triple room at a good rate, the location being right in the heart of the city was perfect for us. We parked at P6, and paid for a few hours there, then got a pass for 4Euros/day for the second day (from the hotel). It is a short walk down from P6 (through the old gate), easy... More

Prices reasonable, rooms clean. It is central enough but outside the noisy areas. Rooms are basic, quality of sleep is standard. Minuses: really hard matress and no elevator. But I would definitely recommend it.
