Here only for two nights, but everything wonderful. Just a short taxi ride from the train station; located on a piazza across from a historic church whose lovely sounding bells will wake you each morning. Easy access to sites and the waterfront to the ferry service. Our room on the top floor was large, comfortable, a nice sitting area, large wardrobe and tall windows that opened to allow a lovely breeze and beautiful view of the alley ways, houses and a view of the lake; bathroom small, but had a sky light which was the best light I had for putting on makeup on our entire trip through Italy! Breakfast was simple, but good: meats, cheeses, melon, breads, juice & coffee, but quite plentiful. What we didn't eat, we made little sandwiches to snack on later in the morning as we were out and about. Francesco and the gentlemen at breakfast (sorry we can't remember his name), were always so hospitable and it's obvious they care about their guests. The restaurant is quite popular and a couple of the locals said del sole had the best pizza in town (they also have other items on the menu). Internet was intermittent and wasn't working when we tried to use a credit card to check-out, so plan to pay with cash, but this is not a complaint as it wasn't necessary for us to access internet each day. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
