We stayed at Locanda l'Elisa in July 2012 for one night. We had read the not so positive reviews in advance, but thought we would give the hotel a chance anyway..after all you can always find people who are not happy about something.
But the reviews were right I'm afaid. If I was to rate the hotel I would say 3½ star. No more.
It seems very old and worn out. From the days when wall to wall carpets were a sign of class and good taste.Those carpets were still there.
We stayed in their best and largest room (they called it junior suite), because we were two adults and our two children (age 9 and 13), but even so it was very worn out. The decor was I would guess 30-40 years old, wall to wall carpets, heavy curtains, floors made a squeeking sound (like old England) etc. The room was actually clean only you do not get that feeling when walking barefoot on a carpet you think has been there for 30 years.
The pool was old too with a wooden frame around it. Some of the would frame was loose so you could not sit on the frame with your toes in the water. There was a small pond next to the pool with a lot of frogs but also a lot of musquitos. So many in fact, that you were not able to dine outside, but had to dine in the gazebo restaurant (which was actually pretty cosy).
The staff was very friendly and helpfull though. It was actually a nice hotel only the rating is wrong, and thereby the pricing wrong as well. 3½ star at the most.
