Great hotel with balcony & parking
We loved this hotel. Castro is a great spot to explore the coastline. Big room with fridge, and balcony with sea view. New shower , nice staff and on site parking, breakfast italian buffet was decent enough and wifi good. Hotel is within walking distance to Grotto zinzuIusa. You can walk up into the historic center in less than 1omin and a series of steps and shortcuts takes you to Castro marina in 20-3Omin.
