My friend and I stayed here for three nights this July. While we were initially worried after reading some of the angrier reviews, the place exceeded our expectations. To the person who said its like staying in the haunted mansion, you are right. But only for all the right reasons. This hotel is full of fantastic antiques! Our wardrobe was... More

This hotel is centrally located, walk 20 minutes straight up the road to The Duomo. The manager is very friendly and helpful, the room was large, airy but well heated (we stayed in April). Bathroom is clean modern and well appointed. Security is great and there is a lovely family run restaurant across the road and about 100 metres away.... More

Small rooms, but an excellent location within walking distance to the centre of town. It was a very welcoming hotel and good food locations nearby. The rooms are small but clean and there is a bus into town from the same road.

2nd time felt even better than the first time. So to some it all up: 1) great great location, cca 15 min walking from city centre (meaning the Cathedral), and you can really go straight all the way from the hotel, following 1 road, no turns, so its almost impossible to get lost, big shop where you can buy all...

Mostly I stay in international kind of hotels traveling for bussiness, but it was the first time when I came to Italy with my family and we choosed this small pansion-kind hotel. And we found it was really nice and cozy. Location: if you take the same street and walk along it you'll be at the central square in 20-25... More

We are surprised to read the negative comments from other guests of Hotel Casa Lea. We stayed for 9 nights and thought it was good value for the price. The people who run the hotel were very helpful to us, providing us with bus timetables and useful tips on places to visit and eat. They explained the office opening hours... More

What they do not say on the website, is they feel within their right to move people from one room to another without any prior notice I arrived and was put in room 5 and was given no indication that there may be a reason to move me. I was happy and comfortable in room 5, but shocked when I... More

After reading some of the responses to negative reviews from management, I fear writing what I REALLY want to write about Hotel Casa Lea. I booked this location after reading a lot of positive reviews (which I now believe are written by the hotel managers themselves). I risk being seriously slandered after writing this review, but I owe it to... More

I pulled my original review after receiving threats from the proprietors. However after seeking legal advice from an Italian lawyer, I was counseled that it was actually illegal for the establishment to threaten me as I was civil in stating my original opinion. So the following is the original review in its entirety... Stayed for three nights in July and... More
