This was one of the most fabulous hotels I have ever stayed at. Everything from the views, to the service to the rooms were perfect. The hotel looks unassuming upon arrival however once you enter it is transformed into spectacular interiors.
CROWD: Chic Italians, well travelled couples and families, individuals looking for an escape to the countryside. Very quiet, peaceful and enjoyable group of people.
ROOMS: state of the art rooms. Every hotel room goes above and beyond in it's finishings and interiors. The bathroom is pristine and the furniture is contemporary chic. Very tasteful. There is not a bad room in the entire hotel and every room boasts a perfect picturesque view of the valley of temples. It is truly breathtaking waking up and falling sleep to such splendor
STAFF: very friendly, polite and professional. Willing to help if looking for suggestions. My only critique is that a tour of the valley of temples does not cost 120 eur per person - that's quite absurd.
COST: we spent 300 eur for one night. Definitely on the expensive side but worth it for the fabulous hotel and pool.
Con: the only tealy crtique i have is that the hotel has a fabulous view of the temples and will not serve you a glass of wine while admiring the view! The pool is spectacular and it would have been wonderful to enjoy the views w a glass of wine. The only place you can get food/drinks is a little cafe behind the hotel which does not have a view or anything.
Thank you for a fabulous stay! I will definitely return!
