Nice looking hotel, but there were a few issues. Firstly the offhand attitude of reception staff, secondly we were offered a double room when we had booked a twin and most serious of all an ancient air con system that barely worked at all. There is no lift and no help offered with luggage.

The room was pleasant enough and had a good sized bathroom, there was also a nice balcony but some noise from a nearby amusement arcade during the evening. We investigated the restaurant, but were put off by the high prices. Breakfast the following morning was an odd affair with pretty crockery - but plastic knives! Usual Italian fare heavy on cake with the waitress/receptionist urging us to try some bright pink meringues.

After checking out I was pursued by the waitress/receptionist for a security card as she resolutely refused to believe I had already handed it to her colleague. Extraordinary behaviour.

Good sized car park and a short drive to the famous temples, it is also close to the sea, so on paper a good choice, but the faulty air con was a real problem in the summer heat.

We stayed at this hotel in June after staying here numerous times in previous years. On previous visits we were not particularly impressed but returned here again as close family who live close in the area are friendly with hotel managers and booked us rooms for our 4 night stay.

Greeting on arrival was initially quite pleasant and we were very surprised given our experience in previous years! We were offered drinks whilst we waited for our room to become available which seemed very out of character.

For breakfast the options were very limited; the toaster didn't work for one (you'd have to wait your week stay to get a decently-cooked piece of toast), the 'hot water' for tea/coffee was luke-warm and staff watched over us like prison guards, as if examining every piece of food we chose to eat.

The rooms were relatively clean albeit the beds were rock hard. It felt like a table with a bed sheet over it making it near impossible to get a good nights sleep. Wi-fi connection in the rooms was good (and probably the best thing about this hotel).

On check-out we went to the front desk and the face of manager, Rita, had completely changed. It's as though as our stay went on she became more and more abrupt and unfriendly. We were charged €80 more than was stated on initial booking, and after checking the room rates on sites such as booking.com and Expedia found that we had actually been charged more than their most expensive room for a stay in the start of June! I was completely disgusted to say the least!

Overall our experience at this hotel was terrible and we were completely had over by the management of the hotel. I will never ever stay at this hotel again and would really recommend you avoid it like the plague!

Lovely hotel with great staff and fantastic food. Breakfast is buffet style with homemade cakes and local produce. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Right opposite the beach. Easy couple of minute drive to the ruins at Paestum which are well worth a visit.

The hotel is very close to the water front and the atmosphere inside is very elegant, but at the same time not too kitschy as many other hotels in the neighbourhood. We staid for 3 night during a business trip. Usually I go for business in Paestum several times a year, as I travelled by car i booked this time this place to stay near the sea.
The room was nice and clean, with a little balcony and sea view. We also liked very much the breakfast witch was mostly mediterranean, but with some continental selection too.
As the breakfast was great, we decided one evening to try also the restaurant in the hall, but it was a disappointment! They serve mostly fish, but the tastes are nothing special, the portions are very modest, and the prices definitely far too expensive for what we got! There are many other lovely places in Paestum, where you can really have fantastic dinner and pay a fear price!

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Mandetta for a couple of nights in September. Really nice family-run hotel on a clean sandy beach. You can walk to the Paestum ruins in twenty minutes or borrow a hotel bike to get there. The restaurant serves up great food and the rooms are clean. We found the staff to be very kind and welcoming.
