When: July 2012

Stunning views of Monte Conero and Conero bay from this small, friendly, old world hotel that sits of the edge of a mountain 300 meters up. {3 stars}

Traditional, simple, three star hotel with very clean rooms, great AC, small refridgerator and comfortable bed.

Our room had a shower and beautiful view of the mountain and bay. Some rooms have good sized balconies with chaise lounges and small tables to dine at. Our room had a table with two chairs which we used for lunch. There are several large decks or piazzas, all with spectacular views of Conero, the bay and tower. The hotel was a hostel years ago and was renovated in the early 80's I believe.

The beaches, white stones or pebbles, are a 15 to 20 minute walk OR you can ask for a ride down in the golf cart. We were told to call when we wanted them to pick us up, which they did very quickly. There are several sites to walk to, a Tower, church and area beaches rent chairs, umbrellas, offer showers, snack bars and restaurants right on the beach.

The staff at HI were very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Internazionale.

Breakfast consisted of a variety of offerings from yogurt, crossant, cereals, juices and coffee.

Perhaps the BEST DECISION we made was to eat dinners here. The food was superb and I would definitely recommend it. Tables were outside on the patio overlooking the amazing sea views. Zuppa di pesce - amazing, swordfish - excellent. All the seafood was great, but even the simple pomodoro sauce was one of the most delicious of our trip.

Porto Novo is more of a village than a town. Sirolo is about a 15 minute drive and has lots of shops. Ancona is 12 km from Porto Novo.
