The Grand Hotel Astoria was built at the beginning of the 20th century, when Grado was the Habsburgers’ and Middle European aristocracy’s Summer resort, with the name of Hotel Lido.The Hotel knew glory and smartness being the seat of the local casino. It was completely rebuilt and reopened in 1991, continuing its role of hotel with style, quality and elegance, like an island in the island, for its completeness and quality of its services.Tradition and modernity, this is the philosophy of the Grand Hotel Astoria, a 4 stars hotel located in Grado historic centre, few kilometres from the beach, exactly between the historic area with the ruins from the Roman period and the wide boulevards of the city centre, ideal for a completely relaxing seaside holiday.ITALIANOL' Hotel Astoria, splendido Hotel 4 stelle di Grado in Friuli Venezia Giulia, nasce all’inizio del 1900, quando Grado era ancora meta delle vacanze al mare degli Asburgo e della nobiltà Mitteleuropea, con la denominazione di Hotel Lido.L’albergo conobbe fasti e gloria, essendo tra l’altro, sede del locale Casinò. Ristrutturato interamente nel 1991 prosegue il suo ruolo di albergo di stile a Grado, ai vertici della qualità e dell’eleganza, che si distingue per la completezza dei servizi.Tradizione e modernità, questa è la filosofia del Grand Hotel Astoria, Albergo a 4 stelle, situato nel centro storico di Grado, a pochi metri dal mare, proprio tra il nucleo storico con i resti di epoca romana e gli ampi viali del centro, ideale per una vacanza al mare di tutto relax.Le Terme Marine del Grand Hotel Astoria sono un Centro Thalassoterapico e fisioterapico a direzione medica, dove vengono praticate cure che si avvalgono essenzialmente dei benefici terapeutici dell'acqua di mare e della fisiochinesiterapia. L'acqua marina è pompata da circa 150 metri dalla costa, ricchissima di iodio, fitoplancton e zooplancton, viene riscaldata a 30-35° ed utilizzata per i benfici trattamenti thalassoterapici con notevoli propriet� rigeneranti su tutto l'organismo.Affiancato ad esse il rinnovato reparto Wellness & Beauty, sfrutta anch'esso, ove possibile, gli apporti salutari dell'acqua di mare; di qui la trasformazione di SPA (Salus per aquam) in SPS (Salus per sale) per risaltare l'uso dell'acqua marina.

We arrived by car, and after negotiating the streets of Grado arrived at the garage. The staff were amazing they unloaded the car. All the bags were put on a trolly and we only had to use the lift to reception. The staff here were very helpful and we were soon in our room with a large balcony. The breakfast was superb and dinning in the evening by the pool was great.The indoor pool was large and warm.

We were there in Oct 2021. The hotel was great 10-20 years ago. Although the rates are moderate, everything cries for renovation. The staff is friendly, no question. The restaurant on the top is so so. Nothing great. Generally I recommend to buy a copy of "Osterie d´Italia" and visit nice restaurants in the vicinity.

If you are looking for a convenient location in Grado you will not do better. Rooms all quite basic but very clean. Comprehensive Spa with salt water pool. Breakfast food selection however is limited. Would return to this hotel in the future.

This hotel is way past its best and the customer service is something they should be ashamed of. The check-in process was underwhelming as we were not provided with any information about the hotel e.g. times for breakfast / wifi etc. or the local area. We were simply given a key to our room. Upon arriving in our room we were disappointed that it was a little old-fashioned but it was at least clean and spacious and had a nice balcony. We noticed it was an adjoining room but there was no noise from the next room so we assumed there was good sound-proofing. It turns out this was completely incorrect and the couple were simply out! Upon arriving back in our room at approximately 9.30pm we realised that, when the adjoining room was occupied you could hear every sound from the room including the couple’s conversation. They were not being noisy but this room is simply not designed for two separate reservations – we could hear their conversation, their TV, even when they moved the chair. We therefore spoke to the person at reception and complained that the noise was unacceptable. The receptionist (I do not know his name but it was a man with a bald head) was abrupt, offered no real apology but told us we could move to another room if we wished. We were instructed to follow a porter to look at the alternative room. This room was smaller, even more outdated, had a ‘balcony’ about 1m squared which faced a wall and had no natural light. We again spoke to reception and said that, while the room was quiet we were a little disappointed with the downgraded room and asked if any other options were available. The receptionist was very dismissive and told us that was the last room, we could take it or leave it. We were told we were ‘lucky’ to have had the first room with a nice view. I understand of course that if this is the only room available, this is our only option but it is not necessary to be rude and make no effort to make up for the inconvenience of unpacking and repacking on our first night on account of being placed in an acceptable room in the first place. The rooms in this hotel are clearly very old-fashioned and need an update. This is not about the fact that the hotel is old – we were not expecting a modern hotel but we did expect a hotel that had been painted and decorated recently, had good quality bedding and furnishing. There is no excuse for not updating these rooms. The double bed was actually two singles pushed together which I realise is common in Europe but I will never understand how this benefits the customer who falls down the gap, only the hotel who can sell as a double or twin. On our second day we decided to visit the spa. This was one of the main reasons we booked this hotel and we were hugely disappointed. To reach the ‘spa’ you walk down a corridor and enter into a small room with a small sauna and steam room. There are some beds that face a wall. There is a swimming pool with a couple of loungers but it is very much just an average hotel pool. We spent about 30 minutes in this spa in total as it was not a relaxing environment at all. At the end of our stay we came to check out and there was a 20 Euro fine on our account as we were accused of breaking the air conditioning button in the first room that we were given. We absolutely did not break this button and had noticed it was broken upon entering the room but did not think to raise this with the hotel as it wasn’t a concern for us. This clearly was not noticed when we were given the room and then it was assumed we broke it. In any case I am not sure how a guest could be accused of breaking a button – if you press it and it doesn’t release that is presumably because the mechanism is old! Either way, we did not cause this damage and were outraged to be charged further money. The receptionist who dealt with this was pleasant and helped us resolve the issue, but it is a disgrace to have placed this charge on the account in the first place. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was decent, hence we have given this hotel 2 out of 5. But overall it is tired, outdated, customer service is lacking and is it grossly overpriced.

Response from ASTORIAGRADO1, Vice chief receptionist at Grand Hotel Astoria
Responded 11 Oct 2019
Dear Family Mills-Webb We refer to your e-mail of 07.10.2019 and are very sorry to learn that you did not like the stay in our hotel. We would like to go to he different issues as follows: Our hotel was built at the beginning of 1900 in Liberty style. It was completely renovated and reopened in 1991 and through the years smaller renovations were steadidly applied. Furthermore new rooms were built. When arriving at the front desk the guests find a plastic frame showing free WIFI with its net as well as its password on it. Then, all our rooms are provided with a desk and on it a folder with several pieces of information which can be useful to our guests as well as a plastic frame with the different times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the second hall, before reaching the elevators, you’ll find a column with informations concerning our hotel (the different areas with pictures) and our restaurants, the local area and shops. - For remaining questions our staff is always at disposal of the guests directly at the front desk, at the phone or by mail. All our 124 rooms are similar, but different. I.e. our standard rooms are on the courtyard side and have a simple window. As an exception only two have soundproof connecting doors, a small balcony with lagoon view and are situated on the 6th. floor, the highest floor with rooms. We are surprised that the noise coming from the other room with only one guest was so disturbing that it was not possible to stay there. As a consequence there was the change to the only room still available, a newly built standard room. The SPA and the indoor swimming pool (with heated water), both situated on the first floor were built following the wishes and needs of our guests and about 3 times larger than the former ones situated on the 7th. floor. The sauna, the Turkish bath as well as the indoor swimming pool are complimentary. For all other treatments which are on demand, the secretary of the SPA is at disposal for explanations and making appointments. Before giving a room to a guest, there’s always a general check, not only of cleanliness, but also of all technical equipments. The latter to avoid unpleasant inconveniences that could force us as a consequence to make changing room to a guest who’s still using it. - Unfortunately small accidents may happen to everyone, but if informed, we’ll resolve the problem immediately. It’s since a few years that we are working with the dynamic prices, which can change daily, depending on the offer and demand. The dates of your stay were is a period when there were hardly any rooms available. As a consequence the price was high. We do hope to have been of help with our explanations and would highly appreciate to welcome you again as our guest in our hotel. In the meantime, we remain. Yours faithfully, Grand Hotel Astoria Valentina/

In Grado, you do not have a lot of choices for great hotels. There aren't any hotels beyond 4 stars, and 4-star hotels in Grado (or perhaps in Italy in general) are more like 3-star hotels elsewhere. So considering all these aspects, the Astoria is probably one of the better choices, and I would stay there again. On the upside, the hotel is at a great location, only minutes from the historic downtown area that is worth a trip alone. The hotel also has a parking garage, which is great if you travel by car, and by no means a given in that area. (Driving to the hotel is a bit tricky as you have to go through the pedestrian area, but it's no problem really). Generally speaking, the hotel is fine. It is certainly much better (and cleaner) than any other hotel I have ever stayed at in Grado. With that said, I would still say it is a 3-star at best by any other standards. The hotel is old. And I mean OLD. The decor looks like it is 80 or 90 years old. Old wallpaper and small rooms. The bath is OK, but small and old. Almost to a point where it is cool again as it can be considered "historic". But not quite. The "shower" is built into the bath tub, and it was clearly built at a time when people weren't as tall. I am tall, but not excessively so, and I could not manage to take a shower without setting half the bath under water. Truthfully, it just needs to be gutted and renovated. The double-bed is two small beds put together. To make matters worse, they are on rolls, so you are in danger of falling down the crack as the beds tend to slide apart. The mattress needed replacing years ago. The sheets even more so. But at least they seem to be clean. Still not great. The Internet never worked while we were there. So all in all, not a great experience, but still among the better ones you can have in Grado.

The hotel is clean but everything is old and tired. The aircon doesn’t work effectively so I wouldn’t want to stay here in Summer. Everything shuts early but maybe this suits the clients who are mainly elderly. This hotel will suit some people but could improve Customer Services and facilities.

Response from ASTORIAGRADO1, Responsabile reception at Grand Hotel Astoria
Responded 6 Apr 2019
Dear guest, thank you for your review. Our Hotel is an old Hotel with flair in "Belle Epoque" style, and his building date back to the early 900'. For the guests that expect a modern Hotel, is not the right address. But our location near the beach and the old city make out hotel the best place where to stay in Grado. In April we don't have air condition but heating; in summer the air conditioning works for sure! We hope you can change your opinion abot us. Kindest regards GRAND HOTEL ASTORIA Francesca S.

Stayed there over Xmas with a group tour. Excellent room, spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were buffet style, very well presented with a very wide and interesting range of choices. Hotel in a good position for enjoying the town, beach and lagoon. Reception efficient and friendly. An enjoyable stay.

The hotel is in a superb location, very near to the beach and the town. It couldn't be better located. I used the car-parking which, luckily, had valet parking attendants - because the garage was absolutely jammed with cars. Quite a high cost though, at 18 euro's per day. The hotel is lovely inside with marbled floors and walls. That extends also to the rooms. The bar area is very nice and there is also outside seating, which we used. Breakfast is also ok with a decent selection of items. Overall, a very nice hotel, but perhaps a little expensive.
