This is the second time we stay at this hotel and we will be back again for sure. Easy walk into town and a beautiful beach right outside your door. The breakfast is great. Giorgio not only take care of the reception but he also makes breakfast and the best Cappuccino in Italy. He is always friendly and helpful and we would come back again and again just to see him. The rooms are beautiful and the bed's are very comfortable.
The dependance is next to the main 5 star hotel but is less luxury, only 3 stars. Well, the room was very clean and cozy, the bed was made every day and the towels folded also. The view from the room was very nice and the bathroom was nice. The only point that was too bad was that we must pay for everything... Okay we can use the pool for free (with a room at 150€ per night it is the minimum...) but to have a long chair it's 35€ per person, 28€ each for the breakfast or even 15€ per day to park the car... So it is a bit too much!
Let's be objective: the room was perfectly clean and comfortable, the location is great, parking is free, and there is good free wi-fi, and the breakfast was very satisfactory. Also the staff are friendly and helpful. And for the price, it was all quite good value. However...... This place has fallen through a time warp from 1975, which is probably the last time it was re-decorated/furnished. And if you did a "StreetView" of the back (sea-side) of the place you'd never book here, because it looks awful. I'm sure that in the heyday of Sanremo, this was a very smart hotel, not any more sadly. If you really must go to Sanremo (a different question!) then there are certainly better hotels around.
We like the Maristella very much, we like its location, the friendliness of its personnel and the amazing view you get from your room. We like the fact we can walk to San Remo in 10 mn which saves dealing with the city traffic in your car. Where else on the Italian (or French) Riviera can you get a room with a spacious bathroom and a large terrace overlooking the sea for this price? We have been around a lot in the region on both sides of the border and can give you the answer: nowhere else! I personally do not understand some comments here (especially the person comparing it to a "twilight zone", if you have never seen simple furniture like the Maristella's then you have clearly never visited Italy). Please compare what is comparable and if you expect the services & facilities of a 4 stars do not choose a 2 stars. The Maristella is a modest hotel with budget prices located a few steps away from a lovely sandy beach, it may not be in excellent condition, yes the building would need a lick of paint indeed but you get plenty for your money in terms of comfort and service (the beds are good, the rooms are clean, the service is excellent, the continental breakfast is very good and it is generally very quiet). For us spending a night in this hotel is a bit like staying with family, it is that kind of feeling, and you do not get this in many places nowadays.…
It is unbelievable facility. By our opinion it is not hotel but some bizarre place lost in time. You have feeling that you are directly in twilight zone. Room is from ancient times. I have never seen so old furniture. Bathroom is a little bit younger than furniture in room but also from some different time and place. Breakfast is included in price and in the time of breakfast we had a chance to observe stuff fighting with pigeons to force them outside. But some of those fellas kept coming inside – and you are eating your breakfast. Good position of hotel. Free parking.
We found this hotel by just looking as we drove into San Remo early in the evening without prior booking. It was excellently located for sight seeing the town with its private parking, always a problem when you are driving. It is not luxury but very reasonable and adequate in every respect. at 65 Euros for a double room including breakfast it was a good price too. Very friendly staff.
Fawlty Towers should describe the hotel overall. Although at the end of the Imperatrice, the noise from the Via Aurelia still comes through, which makes it hard to sleep with open windows as there is no a/c. We thought it was overpriced considered the poor choice of breakfast, dinner and the definitely passé (to put it mildly) decór. Access to "a" private beach nearby means payment for the facilities, as anywhere along Sanremo coast and beaches. You can share, by paying, facilities of nearby hotels belonging to the same "owner". If you are up for a laugh, although locals, expect any moment to hear "I know nothing........"
This hotel need lots of work,no wifi food was very poor .only staf very good .you will find more good hotel in that area .I really never stay again...
The hotel is not very nice looking, and for a 2 star in Europe you get what you pay for, there is free parking, but no free wi fi . The towels in the hotel has dish clothes.
We stayed 4 nights. Hotel is dated but super clean. Staff were excellent - thank you Sabrina. The breakfast was good and the lemon chicken was one of the best meals that I had in Italy. For a 2 star hotel you get your money's worth. The hotel is an older hotel but location is great. Remember it is a 2 star hotel with older rooms but I would recommend this hotel. If you are traveling on a budget and are using transit, the No. 100 bus is a couple of blocks away. A taxi ride to the train station was about $15 eur. Short walk to the casino and a bike/walk path runs right in front of it. Thumbs up to staff and location.
