A lovely place to stay - great atmosphere, wonderfully friendly owner who went above and beyond the call of duty (including staying up all night to welcome us back in case we needed anything - we, together with many other guests, were at wedding).
Great site, atmosphere and sense of kindness. You will be cared for, sleep, tummy and food(!) and views. Something of what Italy was once like! Go for eating in, enjoy view and atmosphere and local speciaiities.
Only qualms I had were that it was cold and the blanket was thin. My girlfriend was shivering through the night and there was no heater. The place is a little old, and I didn't meet any staff that spoke English. My largest concern was that they kept my passport over our entire stay. The passport was stored openly right behind their counter behind the front door. I dislike this because a passport is not necessary, and is not important to them if they lose it, but extremely problematic if we don't have it when we want to return to our country. I don't believe they have the right to keep it. But the guy doesn't speak English, and he wouldn't let us keep it.
We spent four nights at this hotel as a base for excursions around the wine districts. We got a very nice room with lovely views over the valley and a small balcony. The restaurant deserves an extra score where we got a few delicious and affordable meals. Highly recommended!
This 3-star hotel is in a small village. The rooms were very clean, beds excellent and facilities included air-conditioner (not needed during our stay in September) and a bar fridge. There is a lift for all except the top or third floor, which has rooms in the roof space - watch out for the sloping ceiling - that required your luggage to be carried up one level. We did not dine in the Michelin-recommended restaurant attached to this hotel, nor did we use the swimming pool (not located at the hotel). The breakfast room has a panoramic view of the surrounding vineyards and you can see the other nearby villages from here. The breakfast is typical for Italian-hotels and we found the person (owner perhaps) helping the morning we were there to be very hospitable.
Lovely room, amazing views and a scrumptious meal. The owners were super friendly and arranged for us to tour a nearby grappa vineyard (?) The little bar next door was very local and basic but we coming and very relaxed. Loved it all!
Hotel Belvedere Review If I was booking here I would want someone to tell me the following things... * There is only one restaurant option (the hotel one) the only other options are I think there is one across the road that is only open on the weekend. Also by the Stazione Alice Bel Colle there is another restaurant across the road from it, BUT it's a solid down hill and even worse up hill climb after (if you don't have a car) * We used the bikes but it was a bad decision Hotel Belvedere is at the top of a hill so going down was fine but it was positively unbearable going back up (you had to walk the bikes) we are 30 years old and pretty fit too! * If you're looking for friendly helpful service...go somewhere else. I'm just being honest. The people working there were nice enough (the older gentleman doing brekky is very sweet) but really short and not helpful at all. They didn't give us a run down of the place at all when we checked in so we were kinda wondering about a lot of things. They have so much potential but just fall down in quite a few areas. * Getting there...it's about 9km from Acqui Terme. Woah and behold you CAN take a train! Even after emailing the hotel (never heard back) about how to get there we were left wandering around Acqui Terme wondering how the heck to get there. A lovely couple who own a mechanic shop we happened to stop outside lent us their phone and we called them, they just said 'take a taxi' which would have been 20€ but the couple ended up taking us for free which was amazing. Anyway the train is only €1.95! I'm astounded they didn't tell us about this (or even offer to pick their guests up?!?!?!) * Take your own snacks and drinks! There is a fridge (I'm assuming in all rooms) there is a small shop there but it's really limited with stuff so I would take your faves! * There was no explanation about the things you can do in the area like wine tasting or day excursions. * The WIFI wasn't that great in our room (we were in the top room) but we just sat in their lounge area and used the WIFI so that's not too bad. * Even as we were checking out the guy didn't even ask us about our stay?! I find that crazy! (clearly service is important to me) * They have a hotel van too so why don't they offer to the guests to pick them up from the stazione or take them there? We ended up asking him to call us a taxi which was fine but he just took the hotel van and charged us 8€ for a 2minute drive which I thought was a bit rich. Positive things (I don't want to be too negative) * The pool is beautiful, it's about 1km walk away but it's fine. We spent ages there they have a little shop too. * Dinners are yum. * Breakfast is good, lots of it! We just loaded up and took stuff for lunch too. * Rooms are super tidy and clean with air con. * Set in a beautiful and peaceful surround. So in conclusion it's a great place with lots of potential it's really just the staff that let this place down. If they were more friendlier, more helpful and in general made you feel really welcome it would make the experience better.
We got a surprise on arrival at the hotel. We could use a swimming pool at a nearby location. Based on temperatures ricing to 38 degrees, this was fantastic. Very nice hotel, swimming pool, great dinner, nice people and good service in fantastic surroundings.
Rooms are not the biggest or best, but are quite nice. However, the views and the area are magnificent! The restaurant itself is worth a trip - worldclass! Enjoy this oasis of calm and beauty, we sure did. Very friendly and nice staff too.
Spent onw night here. For the price I paid (43 euros for a night) I have no complaints. The room was small, but completely livable. Small tv with some foreign channels. Wifi was slow. Breakfast was typical Italian: cakes and toast, so despite the great view from the breakfast room I didn't linger there. Right next to the hotel is a hill with a tower, from where you have a great view of the surroundings.
