Wonderful staff. Hotel up a very steep hill so be sure to ask for the airport shuttle. Out of season it is necessary to take the hotel shuttle into Ancona. They are very obliging but this can be an unforeseen expense. Portonovo is fairly lively out of season at weekends but dead during the week.
Hotel restaurant reasonable prices for excellent quality but you must enjoy fish because meat does not feature on the menu.
A very pleasant stay and my sister and I both felt fitter with all the walking uphill!

Stayed: October 2017, traveled with family

The hotel is located 10km away from Ancona, in a beautiful environment overlooking the ocean. The room is average, nothing to shout about. It has quite a good restaurant that serves pretty good breakfast and very decent meals. Service is not bad. As our balcony faced the front, there could be some noise at night. Overall, it's not a bad 3-star hotel and it's nice to enjoy the beautiful view at its outdoor ground.

It's been the second time we stayed in this hotel and we loved it even more. The splendid views, the spacious room (we stayed both times in the same room which is for 3 people) with a terrasse, beautiful design and all very clean. Fantastic restaurant with excellent service. Close to the lovely beaches, the walk is steep but the little hotel shuttle is a saviour when in trouble. And just a very special warm and friendly ambiance created by the staff. Thank you all!

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in the late October 2015. The location is excellent, quiet and picturesque, the grounds are bathed in beautiful vegetation, with many amazing flowers. The building itself is of high quality, the elevator is extremely helpful. The room on the third floor was of a good size with high ceiling, with the large terrace which turned out not to be private. The views from the windows and the terrace were amazing. The minibar/fridge was useful. The heating was excellent. Everything was clean. It was easy to visit Ancona, Loreto and Sirolo from the hotel. The driving through the region is very scenic.

There are however many downsides of this inn. The atmosphere at the hotel is rather of some peasant house, with family members around watching TV and just hanging around idle. The entrance is quite unappealing inside. The staff is too casual, offering no help with bags. The furniture in the room is functional but very low-end. The shower's side glass wall allows water to pour through a bizarre horizontal 2-cm opening, flooding the bathroom. There is zero soundproofing at the room and other guests are well-heard. Breakfast is very average at best, coffee is of a very poor quality. Wifi was not working in our room.

We chose this hotel over Fortino Napoleonico where we stayed last time to avoid noisy crowded late-night conventions and parties. It was not a problem here, but the place lacks any character or charm, it is somewhat Spartan and bare. It's only attraction is its beautiful location otherwise it is a hotel of no distinction, but OK for a 3-star place and its price. It is a pity that there are no more hotels to chose from in Portonovo, as both this Hotel Internazionale and Fortino Napoleonico are with heavy issues as described, being not truly comfortable.

Recommended only for one-two nights, perhaps it's better to find some private accommodations in the area as good hotels seem to non-exist.

Room Tip: Room with a terrace and seaview seems to be the best.

Very nice hotel. The view is stunning. Hotel is providing a shuttle to the beach. Room is clean and spacious. Receptionists are very friendly, nice people, kind and helpful. Restaurant waiters are working hard). And they are well trained.
The place itself if surrounded by flowers, plants and trees. But it is sunny, bright place.

Room Tip: Sea view, friendly staff, good service, sunny, large terrace
