This was my wife and I's trip through Italy and this hotel took the cake. Without writing a thesis which I would do for this hotel, if your looking for all of the above comments this is your place. We paid a little extra for this place but its way worth it. The Head Concierge Alessandro had great restaurant selections and advice. Everyone there will know your name if you stay for more than a day. In short, I cant say enough good things about this hotel I visited Venice and Rome also and this was by far the best.
