    Good things: big room, huge terrace, beautiful view, breakfast ok Not-so-good things: the borderless shower platform was higher than the bath floor and the water leaked out, the furniture did not match with the switches and lighting fixtures

    the room i booked did not look anything like on the pics. i booked "double or twin room" which is more expensive than the economy double. we got economy double. the pictures need to be changed or they need to upload more pictures to be able to see the options. very disappointing. staff did not speak english at all so she did not understand when i asked her to change our room.

    Friendly staff, and super value for money
    We booked this hotel for a really good price and it turns out to be probably the best value hotel we have ever stayed in. The hotel is easy to find, situated a few minutes walk through town (passing restaurants and shops) from Santa Domenica train station. On arrival we were immediately given a room upgrade. The room was nice, with access to a very large balcony with sea views shared with the rooms either side. Breakfasts were included and these were good, and we liked the hotel and the staff so much we ate our evening meals there three nights - delicious food and good value for money. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the Riaci beach (part of it down quite a steep hill) and a 30-40 minute walk to nearby Tropea, a lovely old town with its own beach. It is also worth taking the train to Ricadi and walking to Capo Vaticano and the Grotticelle beach, plus take a trip to Pizzo as that is very nice. Note that Santa Domenica station doesn't have a ticket office or machine and they charge 5 Euros extra on board - we were let off that and had to jump off the train at another station to buy tickets. After that I downloaded the Trenitalia app to buy tickets in advance. In summary, we recommend the Hotel Umberto and would like to thank the staff there for being so welcoming.

    Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
    the room is dated - the shower is so small
    Right from the start - bad customer service. No elevator. My wife and I had to carry luggages 20 flights of stairs up. They did not offer to have anyone assist us. Suite very dated. Shower dated and very small. Could move to get to my shampoo. Dirty.
