Staff were very helpful with arranging a late night check-in (even if we had a bit of a wild goose-chase to find room). The room was basic (and quite dated) but spotlessly clean. Got the room for a nice price so not too many complaints for a quick layover.

We were invited to this hotel for dinner with a group of local friends. Whilst the restaurant has perhaps not the most inspiring design, the quality and variety of food is outstanding and the service staff very nice and friendly. Will go back.

We were there with 3 children. Nice rooms and very kind staff. But you absolutely need a car if you want to see anything more than the city and poetti beach. Swimming pool in very bad condition. It is not four stars hotel.

The food is nice and varied, 20€/pers for a buffet where you'll have an appetizer, a soup, a first/second dish and fruit for dessert. If you want...

We've just returned from hotel Califfo. This hotel was chosen for us as a base for the European karate seminar. First and foremost it is definitely not a 4 star hotel. It is basic and old fashioned. Our room was on the ground floor with a view of an outbuilding. We kept the curtains closed as the view was awful....

I was there out of the sezon therefore the place was very quiet. The best staff I have ever met, very friendly. Nicola from reception team - very helpful! 20 km from the town centre. Difficult to commute without a car.

The hotel itself is perfectly adequate, the rooms are clean and the cleaning staff did an excellent job every day. The rooms have all of the basics (apart from tea and coffee making facilities) but overall the hotel is rather shabby and run down, the lift was broken during our entire week's stay and the lamp and TV were also...

Very nice hotel, 10 min. drive to a lovely clean beach with restaurants. Nice not too big swimmingpool with all sorts of chairs. Our room had a fantastic vieuw. Badroom was great with bath (shower), toilet and bidet (not to wash your feet in!!!). Staff was fantastic, especially Leno (bar, for my campari soda and our late cappuchino and cognac!!)....
