We spent two nights at Relais Ridola in the room pictured above. It was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff member who checked us in was very friendly and helpful providing us with a map of the city and several good restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was good with lots of variety. For warmer weather, there is a nice swimming pool.
One of the advantages of staying here is that secure parking is provided if you have a rental car. It's not a difficult walk to the city center--it takes about 15 minutes but the return trip is entirely uphill. Not a problem for us but perhaps it could be for some not in tip-top shape.
