10.0 Excellent
Pros: Al Vecchio Pioppo was perfect for our stay - the hospitality and care we received was beyond expectations. We really appreciated all fresh breakfast and local recommendations!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Gaetano was a fantastic host. The B&B is truly beautiful and in a fantastic location in Praia a Mare. We were on our honeymoon and would highly recommend.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: From the time I first emailed Gaetano, I felt like I had found a kindred soul. He and his wife, Antonella, were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the local history, culture and events. We came to watch the Giro d’Italia and we left feeling like we had found a second family. The location of Al Vecchio Pioppo is ideal: right in the center of town where all the action is and still quiet at night. Lots of restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner and Antonella provides more food than you can possibly eat for breakfast. Our room was plenty big enough with places to hang up clothes, tables to put stuff on and chairs to relax in. We also had access to a balcony and a fridge for water and storing any food we bought at the market.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Really nice breakfast with fresh croissants, home made cakes and they satisfied also specific requests. The owner was very kind, he gave us a lot of extra information about what to visit and were to go.
Cons: On Saturday and Sunday night in the park in front of one of our rooms the playground is full of loud guys until 6 in the morning, so one needs to keep the window closed and rely on the air condition. The windows keep out the fun of the local kids.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Praia a Mare is a pretty little seaside town and Al Vecchio Pioppo is the perfect place to stay. The room is spacious and Gaetano is a great host. I was travelling with my daughter, who does not speak Italian, and Gaetano went out of his was to say things in both Italian and English for her. He was very helpful with suggestions for day trips and places to eat.

Pros: Location is great, in quiet village with fruterria in 10min and local pizzeria next door. My kids loved the pool. Breakfast was without eggs but with various local pastry.
Cons: Far from the see-definitely need to use a car. No ped routes to go to the beach. Nothing for kids at hotel - no playground/ games/ activities.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: The hotel is dated. The shower isn’t working properly (no sufficient pressure and changing warm to cold water without changing the setting). The airconditioning wasn’t working in the morning. The minibar was making a lot of noise. Breakfast was poor quality. The rate of 119€ is far above the comfort which is offered.

Pros: The hospitality was above and beyond. On arrival we where given a bottle of wine and glasses for our room. The food was the best we have had on our trip in Italy so far, simple but tasty. The maître d in the restaurant could speak simple English and could not do enough for us . Mamma , the owner was cooking in the kitchen . Front office was so accommodating and friendly .

7.1 Good

7.9 Good
Pros: Nice hotel at typical Italian three-star level. Nothing to complain about.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable and clean. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.
Cons: No negative comments
6.5 Good
Pros: Free parking
Cons: Unhelpful/abrupt staff at desk. Disappointed that, although there was a swimming pool at the hotel, there was an additional charge to use the swimming pool, and the beach facilities. We arrived late afternoon and were leaving the following morning, so spending the money for the day at the beach was not feasible but there was no smaller payment option to just use the swimming pool for a quick swim. The nightly rate for the hotel was not cheap and we had assumed this was because it had a swimming pool the use of which was included in the price !
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very nice staff. Breakfast was ok, nothing elaborate.
Cons: Room was too small, about 110 square ft. But it was the only one available. Functional.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Lovely breakfast - added bonus of "would you like scrambled eggs??" And they appeared with streaky bacon - result and well yummy
7.9 Good
Pros: facilities were excellent ... the swimming complex was out of action but it was out of season and it did not significantly affect our stay - food was "home cooked Italian" and the staff and owner were very helpful ... excellent location on the beach and only a few minutes from the railway station
Cons: nothing really
7.1 Good
Pros: Great place to spend a few hours at the beach. The historic centre is lovely at night and an easy walk from the hotel. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Great shower options!
Cons: Basic hotel facilities but clean and good location.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was spotless, our view was the ocean, the beautiful pool and the Talao ‘fort’. With the huge doors open, the birds, fresh air, and even the rain was wonderful on the little protected balcony. The management and staff are professional, they are quick to serve. I had laundry to be done and got it back same day, clean and folded. My husband and I are delighted and highly recommend this hotel. Be sure to find the time to visit the fort, the docent is enthusiastic and knows all about it. The ‘old town’ is ancient with great food and photo opportunities.
Cons: None, all was good.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, but a bit for noise from the street even though we were on the ocean side. Good accommodations and breakfast
Cons: Air conditioner not turned on
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were so welcoming to us and they even dropped us back at the train station the next day. The room was clean with a lovely sea view as requested. It was low season so the hotel was quiet. We enjoyed our stay.
Cons: Nothing!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: There was a lot to like. The staff were incredibly friendly and reception particularly helpful. A lovely swimming pool and very near their own beach club. The room had an awesome view over the beach. The hotel was neat and tidy, simple continental breakfast, we didn't try the bar in the hotel but the bar on the beach and the swimming pool were brilliant. It was a really nice non chain hotel. A final word, the aperol spritzers by the pool were the best we tried.
Cons: Parking could of been a hassle but we found a spot on the first day and didn't move. The air con could have been cooler.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location, private beach, beach bar
Cons: Was too noisy, and the doors for the balcony do not protect from the outside noise.
6.3 Good
Pros: Great location at the beach and free access to private beach with sun beds.
Cons: The breakfast was terrible: bad coffee, no fruit juice, almost no bread before 10 am and they could wait to close the breakfast room at 10 o’clock. The area around the swimming pool wasn’t maintained properly and the whole hotel is outdated (especially bathroom).
6.7 Good
Pros: Location
Cons: Facilities - everything from rooms to hallways looks old and smells cheap washing liquid. The breakfast had a broad selection of goods of the poorest quality. The checkin and checkout process takes about 10 minutes each, because they would like to write your name/room information in several paper journals and lists (who does this in 21st century?). Unfortunately, there is nothing “grand” about this hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really lovely. The staff are super friendly, the pool area is very clean, the beach is just next to the hotel and the room we had was perfectly cleaned with an amazing view.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The best place in Scalea to have a rest. Not far from a charming centre with cafes and shops, but at the same time in peaceful and quiet corner of the town. Well-equipped beach near the hotel with comfortable seabeds. A bit old-fashioned room, but clear and rather spacious. Modern bathroom with all the necessary. A balcony with fascinating view is an unforgettable place to have dinner. As for breakfast it was pretty sufficient.
Cons: To my mind public places of the hotel might be a bit cleaner. And it would be great if breakfast was a bit more delicious.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view from the room and really great beach area and bar.
Cons: The accomodations are a bit dated
6.3 Good
Pros: Great Location with easy and secure access. Fantastic Swimming Pool. Very helpful and friendly staff.
Cons: The hotel needs a general freshen up/clean up. There are areas that have a musty smell & the outdoor areas need more maintenance & care.
7.4 Good
Pros: Staff were very friendly and welcoming, views!!! location is excellent and pool is really good.
Cons: It needs a makeover to be classed as a 4star hotel and charge 4star prices (which we didn't pay) the rooms are lovely but a little tired, bathrooms could do with a makeover, breakfast could be better and air conditioning doesn't work reliably.
5.8 Okay
Cons: Everything is quite outdated
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel has an ideal location for the beach and the town. It's only a short walk from the old town. There is plenty of parking and it is very secure.
Cons: There's nothing to dislike.

Overview Reviews

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is centrally based and all amenities are within a 5 minute walk. The owners of the hotel are the most friendly people you could wish to meet,they also own the bar at the side of the hotel,where breakfast is served. The bar owner is the brother of the hotel owner and again very very nice people. I don't want to sound like I'm going over the top with praise,but believe me it is all warranted. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Cons: The wifi is lost at the further rooms away from the hotel reception,however all wasn't lost as it gave us another reason to sit in reception with another cold beer.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Nice small hotel near the beach. Free parking. Good on-site restaurant.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location with onsite pizzeria walking distance to other café and restaurants free parking, clean and bright, near beach, would stay again next time in the area

Pros: Lovely staff and family owned. Nona Teresa (Gran) takes care of everyone and loves to sit and chat about your day and get to know about your family even if your Italian isn't very good. They made fresh, amazing vegetarian pasta for me as well. The star of the hotel is their beautiful horse, Achille, who loves being fed in the morning alongside the bar and breakfast area.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful setting , wonderful staff all very friendly. You will need basic Italian and I do mean basic as there are not too many English speaking staff. Google Translate saved us on numerous occasions

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The atmosphere and the kindness of the owners.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Basen bez wody ;) swimming pool without water :)

6.0 Good
Pros: It was nice to cool down in the swimming pool. The elderly couple we met at breakfast were very sweet although neither of us could speak each other’s language.
Cons: The air con didn’t work properly nor the television. The facilities were basic and the communication was not very informative about amenities on arrival. There is also no WiFi in the rooms
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfy beds, helpful staff, nice grounds.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: What a nice hotel and even better - run by a family that clearly care about looking after their guests and looked after us well. Pretty easy to find at the south side of Scalea in the countryside. The rooms were fine, the standout was the hotel evening meal - simple but plentiful and really, really tasty. We shall come again.
Cons: Very little. Pool was not open yet but we didn't really have time to use anyway.

Porto di Mare bed and breakfast is a 10-minute walk from Praia a Mare Train Station.
4.6 Okay
Pros: The location was excellent. The property is directly on the main road in the city and just two blocks from the Praia A Mare beach. There is plenty to see and do within very near walking distance. The town and property itself is very dog friendly with trash cans and dog bags throughout the city.
Cons: The property itself was very dated and could use a whole lot of sprucing up. The shower was super tiny and the water would not drain, it was literally overflowing when we showered. The water was brown when we first turned on the tap and eventually cleared up. The bed was very old, cheap and uncomfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was extremely overpriced (tourist prices due to them being #1 on tripadvisor), and the breakfast literally just consisted of croissants and coffee, not the buffet that was quoted when booked. Also, they do not speak a word of english...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super location, very clean, clean room and bathroom. Bathroom is was not inside of the room but it was a provate room and next door. Breakfast is a continental. The B & B has a restuarant Porto di Mare in which you take the breakfast. 2 blocks from the beach and 2 steps from the main street shopping area.

Pros: Location excellent! Staff very welcoming.Very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was a great stay. The most comfortable bed & pillows of our 7 month Italy tour. The owners were delightful, sweet & great cooks. We ate at their ristorante- terrific. Breakfast was also plentiful & very good with homemade torta - yummy. Hope to stay here again. 1 short block from beach & room located on main street.

San Matteo Palace Hotel - Scalea - Building
15
7.7 Good (211 reviews)
C$ 65+
Overview Reviews
Just 350 metres from the Tyrrhenian Sea, B&B San Matteo is in Scalea, on the west coast of Calabria. It offers free WiFi and air-conditioned rooms with ingredients for a self-service Italian breakfast. Set in a renovated building from the 19th century, each room at San Matteo Palace has warm colours and tiled floors. They all come with a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, and most have a balcony overlooking the street. B&B San Matteo is a 15-minute walk from Scalea Station. Cosenza is around one hour away by train.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Scalea was a very slow-paced town or maybe it was just off-season. Very relaxing after leaving Sicily and Napoli. Room was clean.
Cons: The room barely had enough space to get around the bed to the terrace. It would not be suitable if you had an interest in spending time in the room. I don’t think you could even pull the desk chair out.
7.9 Good
Pros: Nice place in city center. Room kind of small. It needed some paint. Good for a night. We had a quiet night and rested well.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: It was close to the beach
Cons: The room wasn’t great
6.7 Good
Pros: Great location very clean rooms.
Cons: No staff on site breakfast was included but it was coffee making facilities in your room with pre packaged crossiants and snacks. When you read breakfast included to expect to go to a general dining area have a freshly made cappucino and crossiants with staff but this wasnt the case.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice, clean and pleasant staff.
Cons: It is in an odd place, rather scruffy residential unlike the hotel, which is immaculate, parking is just on the street
7.5 Good
Pros: Room was spacious.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Not far from the beach, only several minutes walk distance, though there is no ocean view from the hotel. There is a busy street just behind the hotel, where you can stay at any coffee shop in the evening. It's quiet at night, can't hear any noises.
Cons: Limited selection of breakfast. The receptionist keeps our passport until we check out and pay. We need to hand in the room key to the receptionist when we go out
7.9 Good
Pros: Spacious and very clean room and building, pretty modern amenities, bathroom seems like new. It felt safe, and location was good, close from pedestrian street, restaurants and beach.
Cons: Only 1 room key was available which was very annoying when I wanted to get out of the building while the rest of the family wanted to stay in the room. You need that key to get back inside the building but you also need it inside the room to have the electricity/AC work.. (I didn't have a phone available to call my family to get back inside, so this was a real problem for us). So not suitable for a family. Breakfast was not great, just stuff bought at the supermarket, nothing fresh and you have to eat it inside your room, pretty uncomfortable especially with a family of 4 and when there is no real table, no chairs to enjoy a family breakfast. Overall there is no friendly service as in other B&B, it feels like it's just a clean/secure room: there is nothing personalized, no charm, no friendly host to chat with. I guess for the price I paid I was excepting a better breakfast and no issues with keys.
4.2 Okay
Pros: Close proximity to the town and Castle and eateries / bars
Cons: Room tiny, no safe, no parking after advertised as free parking and poor breakfast
6.7 Good
Pros: Location
Cons: No parking, we asked for secured motorcycle parking and they didn’t respond. Quiet location not a lot in the small town

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff
Cons: Crazy loud concert until Mid Night. Dog in next room barking all night. Hallways echoed like a cave with people walking and yelling until 2am. After breakfast our keycards were cancelled and a couple were waiting to check into our room when we had not checked out yet! Staff were friendly and helpful but that was unacceptable in the am! The pool was not cleaned yet and that was a highlight we were looking forward to....
6.7 Good

Cons: Restaurant experience very strange, no information or menu given,,,,also no cash payments, preloading money on a card system not convenient for guests or staff, needless complcations
4.6 Okay
Pros: Nice location
Cons: If you don’t speak Italian it is very hard to communicate. Facilities are pretty ordinary. Bring your own beach towel. Cleanliness of the rooms is not the best.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The position and the stunning view in front of the Isle of Dino. The seafront is very nice and you can stroll around in the evening. The restaurant offered delicious fish and the position is very convenient, not isolated from local shops. Good value for money. The swimming pool was heated at a really pleasant temperature.
Cons: Extra-fee not mentioned in the booking; the card, compulsory to buy anything in the village, should be included in the price. I didn't like all disposable plastic used for breakfast, instead of glass and ceramics.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Good view of the sunset
Cons: Dinner was appalling and overpriced. Had to wear a wristband to show what category of guest we were. Needed to preload cash card to pay for extras rather than charge to room as would be normal. We have used Booking.com about 20 times: 19 excellent and then this dreadful experience.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel- located right beside the beach
Cons: Check out time was 10.00 and they were checking people in at this time too- queues were long and slow moving- it says 5hat check in time was 17.00
4.6 Okay
Pros: The beach
Cons: Staff was rude Breakfast buffet was just okay Dinner buffet was terrible
