We spent 3 nights here and chose the hotel mainly because there was no road between it and the beach. Lucky choice! The lobby area is small and doesn't set the tone for the marvelous rooms. We felt transported back to the 20s or 30s when we entered our elegant corner room with 15 foot (about??) and floor to ceiling...

I really wasn't sure about this hotel when I booked it but enjoyed our two nights here. We booked a superior room with dinner bed and breakfast for a really good rate direct off their own website. We emailed requesting a corner room with balcony on the top floor and much to my surprise we were given it. The room...

This hotel has some of the 1920's elegance build right in to it. At dinner you even have a pianist playing and if you are lucky some of the lady guests will be dressed accordingly to the tone of the hotel. The hotel stuff is nice, the rooms are clean, the meals are excellent and the view... Ohh.. The View...

Old hotel in Lovran. Small room. No airco, no fridge, very old bed (terrible). A 3 minutes shower turned the bathroom into a small swimming pool. Parking your car near the hotel will cost you another 5€ per day/night. The private beach is a joke. Friendly staff. Great view from the room. Noisy environment. Too expensive (100€ for one night...

Room has all "the grandeur" of the end of the 19-th century. Terras of the restaurant "Belvedere" has'nt stolen his name. Breakfast offers a large choice.

We stayed here for a few nights in June. It is a large old fashioned hotel that has recently undergone some renovation. Our room was spacious with lovely high ceiling and view of the sea.

A beautiful old fashioned hotel in an elegant building reminiscent of a large villa in the South of France, set on the sea front in the delightful town of Lovran.
