This wonderful hotel has a perfect spot between the harbor and a big park that sits right on the sea. {2 stars}

Walking from the train station, go about 10 blocks until you hit the park. The hotel is on the left and a church on the right. You’ll pass a small amusement park just before the hotel. Best to let the hotel know when you are arriving as they need to buzz you in. One of the nicer places I stayed in Italy because of its position in an open space; affording views of the park, harbor and cathedral.

This family-run hotel, which was staffed only by the son Luca while I was there, is very clean and rooms are big with vaulted ceilings and are simply, but nicely decorated. My sunny room, a double with two single beds and a bathroom, was 50 euros/night and overlooked the lively piazza. The noise wasn’t bad despite hoards of people out filling the streets every night. It wasn’t hot, so closing the windows drowned out any noise and I enjoyed sitting in my window watching the activity when I wasn’t out wandering.

If you’re lucky, you might catch Luca playing guitar and singing on the balcony! They have a handy, mini folding map of the city which was really useful as the tourist office was closed while I was there. Cash only.
