    « Just Okay »

    This hotel has a great location and probably in its time was an excellent hotel; it is need of refurbishment although they have tried to make some improvements. Overall the rooms were okay a bit small but clean. If your visiting the casino then this is the place to stay. Breakfast can definately be improved !!

    The hotel location is the perfect place if you like it the center of everything. This is a kids friendly hotel, great breakfast, very nice staff and most important to me this is a very clean place. I will go there again

    « Ideal location »

    Ideally located at the end of the excellent pedestrian shopping zone in Sanremo, this well run and comfortable hotel has its own restaurant, cafe bar, roof terrace and hot tub...........plus plenty of facilities for business groups. Two lifts supply the different levels and our room was spacious, well equipped with airconditioning and a special mention to the comfortable double mattress on the very large bed. The restaurant has a good menu and attentive staff, and there is seating inside as well as outside where you can people watch. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of cooked or continental, but the dining experience on the roof top open air terrace was shades of Alfred Hitchcock.........the resident flock of pigeons are totally brazen and will land on the table whilst you're eating, making the first meal of the day an unwanted and unnecessary fight as you fend off these flying vermin. My only other comment would be that first timers to the hotel should be better warned that the best way to access the hotel valet parking is to abandon your car in the area of the casino.............you can then wheel your luggage to reception and give your car keys to the valet. It's a tried and tested system. We'll come back here and will also recommend it to others.

    « Clean and Classic »

    The hotel is old fasion classic but has a beautiful roof terrace and you can have a nice sea view for both sunrise and sunset. At first the gave us a small room on the 1st floor (which is too nousy at nights due to its closeness to the nearby restaurants) but when you move to higher floors (as we requested) the rooms became bigger and if you ask for the rooms at the left side fasing the casino then you have a terrace too. And they dont have pool, just a jacuzi. Overall 4 stars...

    « Drinks and nibbles »

    After shopping, we stopped here to share a nice bottle of Rose in the afternoon. The wine was delicious, and nicely chilled, served in lovely glasses. The waiter brought out a platter of delicious savoury snacks, as well as nuts, crisps and pretzels. It was enough to describe as lunch! Will definitely return on my next trip........

    « As good as usual »

    We have now returned to the Nazionale four times and always find it to be a great hotel. Rooms always clean, bed comfortable and we always receive a warm welcome from the staff. We have twice had rooms to the side of the hotel overlooking the casino which we find to be great as they have a little balcony that you can sit out on and watch the world go by. The slight downside is that there is also a church whose bells strike the hour in the morning and on Sundays call the parishioners to church but these did not disturb us and actually added to the atmosphere. The hotel is situated in a great place, over the road from the beach and at the end of the Main Street where evening 'promenading' is a must. Breakfast was good value at 5 euros and is served on the roof terrace with an excellent view over the Mediterranean. Car parking service very good, the Hotel is situated on a pedestrian only road, however it is at the end so there is a little area to pull in to and off load luggage. Keys can then be left with reception who arrange for the car to be parked in their garage. At the end of your stay they very quickly arrange for the car to be returned and when it does the porter will take your luggage to the car. There is a charge but parking in San Remo is a bit of a nightmare so this service is worthwhile. One point I would mention - The hotel does still allow smoking in some of its rooms and I think this is arranged on certain floors. Of course depending on whether you smoke or not depends on whether this is a positive. We don't and forgot to make a specific request. The air conditioning must be linked to other rooms as on one of the mornings we could smell cigarette smoke. For us this was mildly annoying but if you have strong feelings make sure you request non-smoking. We love this Hotel and San Remo and look forward to returning.

    Best Western Nazionale ? (Sanremo, IT) ? San Remo is a coastal town in western Italy. The Best Western is not on the seaside but is close by with some views of the Mediterranean. The hotel is clean and comfortable with good sized rooms and A/C. There is a good breakfast in a roof-top room with a sea view. Staff were helpful and spoke English. It is a good choice for a few more Euros given the added cleanliness and comfort.

    « Central hotel with a lovely terraced roof restaurant »

    Ideal for discovering Sanremo, right in the centre of everything and only 5 mins walk to the beach. Rooms were nice and the staff were really helpful. We really enjoyed the roof terrace and the breakfast was very, very good.

    « Superb location. Supercilious staff »

    This property is an absolute jewel in spite of its awkward reception and coffee shop.The disappointing negative is the pretentious and condescending staff. Overly impressed with their own importance ........

    « You can't get there from here! »

    We booked two nights! Never found the hotel which is "somewhere behind the casino." They gave us a credit for one night cancellation and charged us for the first night. Not fair if you can't find the hotel! We called the hotel THREE TIMES to try and locate the street -- even google maps couldn't put us on the right path! Personnel told me I never called. I am sending them a copy of my phone calls! At any rate, San Remo is for walkers and motorcycles and 17 to 25 category. Sorry we missed the sites. Best Western not on our most popular "go to" list right now. San Remo is a mess to navigate by car. Bring your boots made for walking!

    « Amazing location, amazing hotel »

    Best Western in Italy???? Were we ever surprised. The Hotel Nazionale was superb. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The hotel was well situated with their downtown area and beside the local Casino. We are not casino people, but we walked around and enjoyed the atmosphere. The pedestrian roadway out front, came alive at night with everyone out for a stroll. The food in the evening at their restaurant next door was very good. We did have our meals picked out for us. The breakfast upstairs on the roof top was good too. The views up there were lovely. The hotel is not far from the Mediterranean. We had bus trips to Cannes, Nice and Monte Carlo.

    « Great 4 Star Hotel in wonderful location »

    Thanks to Easyjet delaying us by 2 hours at Gatwick, we did not arrive until 10.30pm. We were starving. Asked at reception if the restaurant was open and he went into the restaurant and asked the chef to stay open for a short while to allow us to quickly freshen up before eating. Great service all round and the food was excellent. The Hotel is situated at the end of a pedestrianised area which has some really wonderful shops. My wife had a ball going up one side and down the other, with me in tow, trying to convert the items she was buying from Euros to Pounds, and wishing I had forgotten to bring my credit card. It is about 400 metres to the sea front and there is a pleasant promenade leading to the Marina to the left, and the beach to the right. Our room was clean and comfortable with a an en-suite which had a good sized shower. We also had a tiny balcony overlooking the pedestrianised area which meant that there was no passing traffic. A buffet breakfast is served in the rooftop restaurant so you can sit either inside or out, depending on your preference. There is a limited choice available but the area is nice and clean and the staff are very friendly. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was really very good and cooked to perfection. It was always very well presented plus they have a decent wine cellar. The fact that every evening there were a number of locals in for dinner is always a good sign. I would certainly recommend this Hotel both for comfort and the excellence of the staff.

    A fabulous location for good restaurants & cafes. Walking distance to the old city & good for elderly family members. The room was comfortable for a twin room & the bathroom was a good size with a walk in shower. Friendly helpful staff who went out of there way to make us comfortable.

    « My mistake recued by The Nazionale »

    Previously stayed at the Nazionale in Porto Fino- great hotel,location and unique harbor. I try to avoid booking companies so booked myself long before our trip.As we drove into Italy after several days in France ,I retrieved our reservation confirmation and then realized I had booked the Nazionale in Sanremo not Porto Fino!Result? Great well located hotel,great restaurants, and a bustling waterfront town that suited us just fine,(I mean Fino).

    « Enjoyable Stay »

    This hotel has a great location. Some rooms have a balcony overlooking the main pedestrian street. It is a short walk to shops and restaurants and the charming older part of the city. Our stay included breakfast on the 7th floor where there is a roof top patio and wonderful view of the city both during the day and in the evening with the nightlights. Internet was free throughout the hotel and very it was very dependable. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « Wonderful stay »

    What a beautiful hotel , everything about this establishment was so perfect . Staff were so truelly friendly from the cleaning staff to front of house and could not have done more for us or anyone else there . Such a relaxing and friendly atmosphere day or night. Food was excellent in my mind and there was no rushing at all be it from breakfast to evening .What ever you asked for, staff did their utmost to provide. Such a comfortable bed , with a lovely spacious bathroom , lovely bed linen and lovely white fluffy sheets which were changed twice a day. Also a mini fridge in room filled with goodies but I did resist ! Centrally placed for access , especially to the casino almost next door !!!! As I did not have a car am not able to comment on this facility but there is parking so you would have to look into this aspect .So enjoyed staying here and could most definitely recommend for a relaxing and comfortable stay. So nice to see dogs were welcome.

    « A great stay »

    We stayed at Hotel Nazionale for 2 nights as part of a touring holiday and had a fantastic stay here the only thing that was a little disappointing was we were booking hotels with a car parks they say they have one but its a valet parking at 19 Euros to park on the road as far as we could work out, the on road parking we did which was safe was 12 Euros for a day and a half which you purchase from the marked shops. All this said we would stay again in a heartbeat.

    « Good Location »

    We arrived by car and the hotel took care of our car and parked it for us in their garage. We had lunch in their restaurant and was happy with the food. The room was quite big and also had a small balcony overlooking the Casino. Breakfast was on 7th floor and we sat outside enjoying a normal Italian breakfast. Wifi in room was good.

    « One of our favorite places in Italy »

    We travel to Italy almost every year and stayed in BW Nazionale several times. Hotel is perfectly located on a central pedestrian street where you can see walking orchestras and other performances. It is next to the Casino and is very close to the beautiful seafront boardwalk. Hotel is very clean and well maintained. Front desk stuff always ready to help and answer your questions. Restaurant next to the hotel is excellent and gives 10% discount if you are staying in the hotel. Breakfast on a rooftop of the hotel with breathtaking view on a sea is an experience by itself. This year we are planning to come to this hotel again and even convinced our son, who is graduating from the college and usually does not like going with us on vacation, to stay in this hotel for a week.

    « Great place in Sanremo center! »

    We had a weekend stay in this lovely hotel right in the city center of Sanremo. Staff was very helpful and professional, told us a lot of useful info to discover the best of this town. Room was big enough for us (2 adults) and with a lateral view over the famous Casinò. The breakfast room at the rooftop was really the top: magnificent view over the town and great food! A little expensive the private garage (you've to climb up a steep road to get to the parking with a member of the staff) but absolutely needed because in Sanremo find a parking place for the car is very difficult!

    « Terrific Hotel and location, ticked all the boxes »

    Six of us, (one double, one twin and two singles) stayed 4 nights in this excellent hotel. On checking in we were greeted not only by the front desk staff but also by the hotel manager - Direttore Christian Feliciotto - who's fluent English, charming and helpful manner was a real bonus. Our rooms were very good. Comfortable beds, clean and well equipped bathrooms, all unobtrusively serviced. The rooms were well situated with views over the Corso Matteotti, the main shopping street. The free wi-fi system was reliable and fast. The hotel bar and coffee shop on the ground floor provided great and friendly service. With many good restaurants in the local area we were spoiled for choice. We dined one evening at the Quintessenza on the ground floor of the hotel. Breakfast is served on the 7th floor with choices to suit every palate. Adjacent to the breakfast room is the roof terrace giving superb views over the sea and town. On our last day Christian got us grandstand tickets to see the San Remo Carnival. We sat in great comfort watching the floral floats and marching bands. Fantastic. As the parade went on beyond the normal check out time we were allowed to hold our rooms until 2pm. Such kindness and consideration is not so often experienced. Thank you Christian and the Nazionale staff. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to you.

    This hotel was well located in the main shopping and restaurant areas, and is also very close to the Casino. The hotel lobby staff were extremely polite and our rooms, although a little outdated, were very comfortable indeed. We had a fantastic evening meal in the hotel restaurant downstairs, and enjoyed being seated outside under the balmy Mediterranean night sky. Really lovely hotel

    « Beautiful hotel with great location and unfortunatelly awful breakfast... »

    Situated near the Casino and on the main walking street, the hotel is made with lots of taste. We`ve stayed couple of nights there and were welcomed by very friendly and helpful stuff. The lobby is very nice and the restaurant downstairs is just great. The rooms are spacious and clean, but need to be renovated. Everything is a bit worn out, but this is not that bad, as the hotel is very good located, clean and nice. Our dissapointment was the breakfast. It was simply awful. The choice of the buffet is very poor. The croissants tasted like several days old, the eggs - over boiled, there was a juice, which tasted as the cheapest possible dissolved juice... there were no fruits at all and no vegetables as well... even the capuchino was not that good (a person would think, that`s impossible in Italy). We suggest, that if you normally pay good attention to the breakfast, it would be better to choose a different place for your stay.

    « One of the best hotels we have been around Europe »

    Such a good experience, thank you very much! So nice hotel, everything was just perfect! We got an upgrade from superior rooms to junior sweet so we were very delighted. The premises are in such good condition, room are in Mediterranean colors, the bed was so wide and very comfy, enough pillows, blankets, towels.The room service was very good. Hotel is just couple of steps from the sea front on the pedestrian street with all that shopping, wining and dining.

    The Best Western Hotel Nazionale is situated in a convenient location, within walking distance to shopping, the old town, the beach, eating establishments, and the casino. The hotel is clean and secure, with comfortable beds and comfortable pillows. However, the bath tub is extremely deep, making getting into and out of it to shower very dangerous. The desk staff is efficient and helpful. The breakfast buffet included a variety of good quality fresh food, which guests may eat on the outdoor terrace that is located on the roof of the hotel. Both evenings, our dinner was included in the hotel restaurant. The generous portions of food were good. The first evening, the servers were attentive and efficient. Except for one male server on the second evening, the servers were apathetic and rude. For example, at our table of four females, a male server boldly told me, ?give me that,? as he pointed his nose toward my plate. I responded by telling him that he could take the plate, to which he expressed disgust by intentionally tipping over a glass. Had the glass had anything in it, the contents would have splashed all over me.

    Hotel location is perfect. Hotel has been renewed lately and offers an excellent stay if You come for business or You come for vacation. Hotel is locating on walking street but it is in corner of small city street in where You can easily park Your car. Cost is only 8 euros for 24 hours. Hotel has excellent restaurant in the 7th floor in where You can have beautiful view to sea and to city. We recommend You to have evening view and enjoy excellent kitchen at the same time.

    « Fantastic hotel »

    Very well located next door to the casino close to the restaurants, bars and shops. Great service by all the staff. This has to be the cleanest hotel I've stayed in in many a year. Lovely big room and a comfy bed, still firm but not like the usual rock hard Italian beds. Breakfast on roof terrace is great as is the rooftop sunbathing area. There is also access to a private beach area over the road. Valet parking in secure garage for ?18 a day. Very popular bar and restaurant areas. Not a quaint or characterful hotel but very well run, clean and comfortable base to explore the area.
