Price starting from 59 .00
CHECK AVAILABILITY
The Hotel VIRGILIO is located only a short step from the historical centre of Tropea and in a few minutes you’ll be on the white-sand beaches.

This modern hotel is spread over four floors and offers its guests a restaurant, on-site garage parking and 24-hour room service.

They can make use of the complimentary shuttle to the beach, and sample regional pasta specialties in the informal restaurant.

Tropea is located in the middle of Calabria and 11 kilometres from Capo Vatican. Tropea is a wonderful place to visit: beach, sea, history, culture, a beautiful town full of character and history with breath-taking scenery. It is built on a steep cliff, which adds to its charm, so there are stairs leading from the town centre to the sea.

The hotel provides information on sightseeing tours and excursions.

Positive: Staff at Hotel Virgilio was very friendly; parking in the garage was possible (we were the only guests I assume and there are 4 or 5 parking slots (one used by the hotel), parking at the street is difficult due to much traffic) Negative: the bed was very (!) uncomfortable - we woke up because of back pain; bathroom was not really clean; the door to the balcony did not close completely what made you hear the noise from outside.

We spent 6 nights at Virgilio. The key features are very friendly reception, hotel in great position near the market and at the top of the town a short walk from all the action and yet in a relatively quiet location. The town has everything lots of great restaurants and interesting activities:- live popular music, plays, opera recital. Beach charges varied from 20-5 euro for 2 beds and umbrella. Only major downside was the poor breakfast.

This hotel is probably half way between the station and the city centre. Everything is walking distance because Tropea is so small. This was my second time staying here and again it was pleasant. Rooms were clean, tv available, good location, friendly staff.

From the train station, follow the street which curves down around to the left under the tracks, turn left at the petrol station and you will see the sign. 5 minutes walk. Centrally located, everything accessible on foot. European style breakfast with toast, ceral, youghurts etc.

Parking was a big plus. Directions to restaurants were very good. The room, though small, was adequate with plenty of hot water.

This was a bit of a disappointment, the bathroom was horrible, the showere had no shower curtain it used to you couls tell. the television did not work and the room was souless. The bed was hard and the decor of the room was very depressing. It was difficult to find and when i phoned up to find out where no one really spoke english. We did not bother with the breakfast i cant say the hotel was atrocious in anyway it just was not very welcoming as was Tropea i doubt we will go back to this part of Italy again or this hotel.
