La Loggia is really conveniently located if you plan to explore the city by public transport, or even on foot. The place feels like you are sharing someone's home as a guest, just as much as a paying client. You are made to feel really welcome from the moment you arrive and you are free to use the communal garden as much as you like. We were even able (dare I say welcomed) to check in early, as we were transferring from another property in the city.
Rooms aren't cleaned daily, unless you request it, the same goes for towel changes, this is nice as it does make you feel like it's your room, to make yourself at home in, but worth remembering to request, if you are looking for that level of service.
The standard of decor and upkeep feels very high and although there is no getting away from the fact that this is a converted residential property, it is done in an vey sympathetic and clever manner.
We stayed in the romance room, which is right by the front of the property and it is worth noting that there is a bar/restaurant next door, which has a street terrace that looks right into this room. We weren't disturbed by any noise from this or the street in general, but we also were not there at the weekend, when there may be more chance for it to get noisier.
While I think that La Loggia is a bit more pricey than other B&B's I cannot fault the location, decoration, welcome or level of service, so I think it does represent value. Nice touches included the printed list of eating recommendations (mot within 15 minutes walk), broken out by price & style, the al-fresco breakfast in the garden and the tea/coffee area.
Overall, maybe its a bit of a treat - but like the ladies on the L'Oriel adverts say - "You're worth it".
