“Lovely hotel in a delightful town”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

Gerace is one of my favorite towns in Italy, and this is the best hotel in town, just off the main piazza. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable, and the restaurant is quite good. The best thing about it is the location. Gerace is a safe, serene town -- molto tranquillo, as the locals would say -- with lots of charm and a very interesting history. The people are especially friendly here, and I made several new friends during a short stay. I want to go back as soon as I can.

There are great views and the staff is very pleasant. One big issue is the lack of internet connectivity which needs to be addressed. As well, the rooms could be updated with flat screen TV's for instance and perhaps DVD players. There really is not much to do in Gerace at night, so a few more modern amenities would make this into a very good hotel.

The hotel is everything it says it is, from the moment you arrive you feel in luxury, tucked away in a side street off of the main Piazza it is charming, cool and you feel that someone has spent time decorating this hotel with style.

The hotel is superb but and there is a but, it is set within the picturesque town of Gerace which sounds wonderful until you go and buy a drinks or buy an ice cream when it becomes a question of how much money they can extract from you i.e.the same drink at the same bar at the same table at a similar time, three evenings with three prices ranging from 3 to 4.75 euros.

As I have said the hotel is wonderful but because of the other issues outside of the hotel I will not be returning.

We had a wonderful stay in this fairy tale village, which Flying Owl exhorts those willing to get out from under the Tuscan sun and explore the rest of Italy to visit. Whilst not undiscovered, especially by Northern Europeans, Gerace in late March was very quiet and pure magic. The undisturbed architectural fabric of this place is a wonder, and it has been spared the theme park feel of places like Cortona. Genteel dilapidation is the order of the day. Every meal we had, from the local wine bar to the restaurant at Casa di Gianna (with its selection of the best Calabrian wines) was delicious. The hotel itself is extremely charming, well cared for and well staffed. Simon was quite helpful and speaks excellent English. Be aware that English is not as widely spoken as in the north so haul out your phrasebook, roll your Rs and smile broadly. The locals are extremely friendly. We did not have time to delve into the lush, surrounding countryside or to see if there are any secret havens from the concrete sprawl along the shoreline, but I strongly suspect there are more travel treasures to uncover in this area.

Beautiful rooms, full of character, in an old house right in the centre of Gerace. Perfectly located for a romantic stroll to the city wall with amazing views to the Med. Pleasant service and very clean rooms. We didn't try the restaurant as it was a little beyond our budget. Would definitely stay there again.
