Spending a night in Bellevue house resembles a stay with your family. The owners are so warm and caring that you actually feel at home. The shared hall is well decorated, and it gives the place a great deal of it's charm. The room we stayed in was elegant, spacious and clean. Since it is not in the newest building, the tiles in the room were quite old, which on one hand contributed to the allure of the room, but on the other hand made it feel somewhat less clean (even though it was clean!). We had a comfortable bed and a great private bathroom, both clean and big, and the coffee/tea stand, big closer and mini-fridge in the room were very nice. The location of Bellevue House is very close to the train station, and yet not at all far from all the city's main attractions. In addition, Alessandro recommended us a great local restaurant which was excellent and not expensive that we really liked and probably would not have found otherwise, and they even gave us a free desert for being guests of the Bellevue house, so it was really cool. There is free WiFi in the room, which was very important for us but it could have had a stronger signal. In conclusion, we had a really nice stay. It wasn't so nice dragging the suitcases up the stairs 3 floors but: a) Alessandro offered to carry it for us so I really cant complain, and b) It was stated before we made the resevation so it was clearly our choice. From the value perspective, I think the price was fair, but if it was slightly cheaper it would have been perfect. We will remember the Bellevue house as an excellent experience, and mainly for Luciano and Alessandro, so thanks again guys and we hope to see you soon! :)
