This hotel was the worst by far of the 5 we stayed in during our recent vacation in Italy. Apparently the hotel is going to be renovated, that is good because it badly needs renovation. "Shabby chic" had its quixotic charm in the public areas, but our room was awful, simply awful. Shabby chic would have been a vast improvement. The room was large and not decorated at all....just bare walls, twin beds (we booked a double which turned out to be "2 adults" which does not mean "married couple" and was annoying). Also, one small table with small inadequate lamp between the beds, one dresser with a useless mirror, so low it stopped at my shoulders (I'm 5'3"). Also, a wardrobe and two chairs from the breakfast room. That's it. Huge room, bare. The beds were made up with sheets that were too small and became untucked easily to reveal the mattress cover: a bathroom towel! It looked like the convent we think it probably was, although I would suspect that the nuns might have thought this room was part of some larger plan of penitence and accepted it on that basis. The bathroom was tiny, not super clean. Thank goodness for the wide windowsill, otherwise there would have been zero place for bathroom items. Where to put the luggage? On the dining chairs, which were much too small really but were pressed into service. In short, the room was cold in feeling and was pretty much a dump. We would never stay there again or recommend it to anyone. Yes, the people were nice (they're in the hospitality business....) and yes the breakfast was okay, no different than any other hotel. But the room was awful. It also overlooked an area that is populated late into the evening by lots of young folk having lots of fun....nice for them but the noise level was bad until about 1:00 AM. The worst hotel of our trip, by far. We were glad it was only for one night.
