Perfect location right within the fortifications of the old city. Previously a Palazzo, evidence of which is still apparent with the stunning frescoes, high ceilings and grandeur all round. Only 50 something bedrooms but public areas feel like you are in a much larger space. The bedrooms are a great size with large windows and a decent sized bathroom. The bar and restaurant are very good too and breakfast is extremely varied & fresh. Traditional style so not for you if you prefer minimalist and contemporary. Only negative is that there is no gym or any exercise equipment. However, Highly recommended
