An old palazzo that was turned into a hotel. Some rooms are nice, some other are tragic. I even found a moulded wall in one room. The interior is rather dated. Nice breakfast and a great backyard though...

This is a charming hotel in a beautiful 200-year-old refurbished palazzo. The staff in reception were very friendly and helpful. and Francesco in particular was always ready to help with any problem. The rooms were clean with nice traditional fittings. It did surprise me to discover that they don't change the towels everyday, so I wouldn't throw your towels on... More

I visited this hotel in October 2013 with my girlfriend and niece. The hotel is a little gem, very close to the heart of the city with nice grounds and real charm. The staff were fantastic especially Francesco who recommended some excellent restaurants and could not have been more friendly and helpful. The location is a short walk from the... More

Our bible and rating standard is the Trip Advisor. This particular hotel had not rated as highly as others but could accommodate 5 rooms at a reasonable cost and looked OK. One of the main criticism that we could find in the reviews appeared to be the unhelpfulness of the staff. Our experience was a pleasant surprise. All the staff... More

Me, my wife and our one and a half year old daughter had booked this hotel much in advance for a night in September 2013. We reached the hotel at around 12:30 pm only to hear that our room was not ready in spite of the fact that the check out time for guests is 11 am. Not sure what... More

Great location - 10 minutes walk to city centre, 15 minutes driving to highway. Nice middle-age building, renovated. Pool, privat parking (bit costly), a/c, garden with chairs and relax area. Good restaurants in the same street, minimarket 100 metres far.

Lovely hotel in a beautiful building. The corridors and stairwell make you feel you are in a very posh hotel. Room was spacious and bright. There is a charge for the pool but you know this upfront and we used it one afternoon after a hard few days sightseeing. Is a bit out of town, but quiet do s good... More

Hotel Royal is a lovely vintage building, with crystal chandeliers and paintings. Especially the lounge/Wifi area is beautiful. The hotel is situated at walking distance from the main attractions of the city and in a relatively quiet neighbourhood. This is all good. But still... The breakfast buffet had coffee from a machine, no eggs and fruit from a tin (in... More

Nice premises, nice location but poor result. Should be well maintained, much more cleaner. Better not to offer breakfast if this is the quality. Should also avoid taxi cheats when hotel calls for taxi.
