Very nice hotel set in a beautiful location within easy reach (driving) of plenty of beautiful countryside and quaint Italian villages however I found the staff less then friendly and wasn't advised the restaurant was closed until 8pm which was a major disappointment and hugely inconvenient. Room was a good size with balcony and I found it to be very comfortable. Breakfast was ample, public areas were populated by staff/owners family most of the time which wasn't very accommodating to guests wifi only worked in public areas.
Hotels.com has this property listed as 4star which I'd disagree with due to poor customer relations.

Visited during the off-season in summer and it felt like the hotel was clean and tidy, but stuck in 80s style. It was a fair walk to the town centre, and being the off season there wasn't a single restaurant open so we had to eat at the hotel, which in the end was nice and fairly reasonably priced

This hotel is a quite and nice place in the heart of the picturesque nature. It is located very close to beautiful tracks in the Abruzzo park (e.g Val Fondillo).
It has a very friendly stuff.

Hotel molto grazioso e piacevole, personale cortese e molto disponibile. Camere spaziose, pulite e ben arredate. Nulla di eccessivamente lussuoso ma molto piacevole e ben curato.

Pessima esperienza con prenotazione tramite Expedia: il numero delle persone inferiore a quello inserito, mezza pensione richiesta ma non calcolata nella tariffa totale.
Conseguenze: necessità di cambiare stanza ma possibilità di farlo solo il giorno dopo l'arrivo.
Importo totale per 1 settimana di soggiorno di gran lunga superiore a quello preventivato per tutti i costi aggiuntivi non specificati nella prenotazione e, cosa ancora più grave, costi troppo elevati rispetto ai servizi offerto dall'hotel, davvero deludenti!

Siamo da poco tornate da4gg nell'hotel sport daniel di pescasseroli molto contente della scelta.L'Hotel è situato in una posizione strategica ed è davvero un 4 stelle con vari confort:piscina coperta,spa(con idromassaggio,bagno turco e sauna),tv sky,palestra,giardino,WiFi gratuito,ed è convenzionato con vari enti turistici per escursioni a prezzi bassissimi(noi abbiamo pagato 1 euro a testa invece che 15 con ecotour).L'albergo è molto curato,ben tenuto,pulitissimo e si mangia benissimo(colazione abbondante).I propritari e lo staff sono disponibilissimi!non temete di chiedere nulla saranno ben lieti di aiutarvi anche per cose che non competono.Vi sentirete coccolati e avvolti da una favolosa positività/competenza della signora Laura e dalla disponibilità/simpatia di un vero galantuomo del signor Emilio(se non erro scusate ma in verità non ricordiamo il nome ma è una persona davvero splendida).Tengono molto ad ogni particolare senza MAI essere invadenti.ben accette le coppie omosex! L'abruzzo è una terra magica ma alloggiando all'hotel sport daniel ancora di più! CONSIGLIAMO QUESTO HOTEL A QUALSIASI FASCIA D'ETà..SANNO DAVVERO FARE IL PROPRIO LAVORO !! grazie di tutto sperando di tornarci molto presto!! :) saluti al cane :D

What a beautiful hotel in the Abruzzo National Park, had a lovely 3 days there while we researched family history in Sora & Cassino. Hotel was a little far for where we had originally planned to go but couldn't fault it, service was excellent and even though didn't speak much English they helped us in any way they could, giving us maps etc on how to get to places. Didn't really eat in the hotel as we was out all day but what we did eat there was very good, but the apartment we had was exceptionally clean and well kept, lovely kitchen area if you wanted to do food yourself , large bathroom and shower room which was very clean, bedrooms was lovely. Would highly recommend this hotel if your staying in the area. Would definitely stay there again.
We arrived in Pescasseroli without a place to sleep for the night and having read some reviews of Hotel Daniel, decided to stop and take a look. It is just a little ways out of the "center" proper of Pescasseroli, but perfectly walkable (about ten minutes).
There is plenty of parking and a spacious lobby (if you like to spend time in the lobby). The room itself was a bit smallish but very clean. Bathroom a decent size, and a good shower.
Breakfast was fine, not exceptional. Lots of windows in the breakfast room which was pleasant in the morning. Wifi was medium...not that fast and we weren't always able to connect.
The owners/managers were very kind and accommodating; they lent us wine glasses and a corkscrew as we had forgotten ours (although we hadn't forgotten the wine!).
Price was about average.
Just returned from a fabulous stay at Hotel Daniel. We were travelling with a new baby and they could not do enough for us. The room was clean, simple and extremely comfortable and the food was fabulous, with a menu that gave various options of fresh, local Abruzzo foods. The staff were very friendly and had great local knowledge of the area. The hotel was a short walk from the centre of the beautiful quaint town and the grounds and pool have fantastic view of the surrounding mountains and countryside. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.
We stayed two nights in this hotel to do some hiking in the neighboring mountains. In general the hotel is well maintained which offers good value for money. It's a bit out of the center of the village, but it's a 5 minute walk into town. Especially the service was remarkable: very friendly welcome and we received a lot of help in booking our next hotel as the owners didn't speak English.
We enjoyed our stay, with reasonably a comfortable room. Services were however very limited and the food was rather heavy and not necessarily very fresh. Worst note however was the price, largely out of line with the overall hotel and restaurant quality.
The cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in! Simple rooms, but nice and very comfortable.
This past September when we checked in we were asked "why are you here, this is the "off" season". When I explained I was there to look at the village my grandfather had emigrated from in 1915, the staff beamed! Laura the owner and the excellent desk clerk jumped into action and started calling people in town with the family surname. A couple of calls later they had located a possible relative as well as the village clerk who has signed the documents I had copies of.......IN1960!!!
That was not enough, they insisted that they would meet us in town at the commune office in the morning to do more research. Long story short, they found my second cousin, Angelo and provided translation for my limited Italian skills. To say above and beyond would be a shortcoming. They went with us to the village cemetery to visit my family's graves and spent time translating for us.
Not only was the room and breakfast very nice but the hospitality was the best I have ever had...I wish we would have been able to stay longer. While Pescasseroli is not on the list of many tourists, I cannot recommend the Hotel Sport Daniel enough!!!!
We stayed at the Hotel Daniel for five nights this August. This was our second visit. Our first was last October, in the quiet season, when on some nights we were the only guests. This time the hotel was full. Both times we have very much enjoyed our stay there. We would definitely return a third time. It is a small, family run hotel and the family are extremely helpful and friendly. Though the hotel was full we slept well at night. We had a fantastic view of the mountains from our room. The hotel is spotless. Great coffee at breakfast time.
Big room, big shower, nice breakfast, nice lobby, helpful staff , reasonable price, clean etc.
Liked it very much, slept like a log.
Go for it!!!
Located just outside the main village area but absolutely great hotel with wonderful food, loved the setting and the beautiful scenery around.
Have just returned from a week at the Villa Daniel Hotel Pescasseroli. This is a lovely family run small hotel. You get good hearty Italian food, a swimming pool, fantastic location in the Abruzzo mountains & staff that could not do more for you.
The hotel is located a short (10 minute) walk from the delightful town centre & is a great base for exploring the national park. I will definitely be visiting this part of Italy again & when I do I will be staying at the Villa Daniel Hotel.
