The rooftop pool really makes this hotel. I was told that they are studying how to extend the elevator to give easier access to the pool and bar. I am handicapped, and it was a struggle. They also need to put a handrail next to the stairs in the pool for handicapped; people were kind enough to help me, but it is dangerous without a "corrimano".
Anyway, I came here to refresh my Italian while my wife is on a tour that I could not do. The staff mostly has English, but they would tolerate my weak Italian. Mi ha piaciuto molto!
