We were disappointed because no dogs allowed even there was a huge dog in the breakfeast room in the morning. So we had to leave our little dog in the car.I found the bathroom a bit too small. ... But well equipped. The room was also small but very nice decorated. The breakfast was indeed a unique experience of excellence!... More

Caffe' dell'Arte is a simply charming boutique B&B with very original zany decor and a friendly relaxing atmosphere. A perfect spot for a romantic get-away if you seek a total contrast to business hotels or impersonal hotel chains...but don't rely on communicating in English; we managed with French & German and have vowed to learn Italian. A wonderful feast of... More

The B&B is on the nice location in the old town, the people are kind, rooms are spacious and the best part - at least for us - was breakfast. Not buffet, but continental. We did not expect much, but what a surprise - served in style, excellent choice of everything, aestethically perfect, you don't get something like this even... More

We stayed there for one night and really enjoyed. The owner took her time to give us great advice on where to go out for dinner outside of the touristic places. Also a very good breakfast!

We stayed two nights in Caffe Dell'Arte. We found the rooms personal and cozy. Far away from standard impersonal hotel chains. Some rooms even have their own coffee machine. The personnel was friendly, service-minded and generous and the breakfast was really something extra. I will certainly come back to this hotel.
