I've had a read through some of the more negative reviews on this site, and am genuinely miffed. There's no musty smell, the decor doesn't look tired, the staff weren't aloof. We didn't see bugs anywhere... We found Hotel Palumbo totally intoxicating!
We stayed in the main building and couldn't get enough of that view. Unlike other hotels in the area, the rooms with the best views open out onto the gorgeous gardens, which just makes everything feel so much more tranquil. The gardens were so green and beautifully maintained - lots of climbing vines and potted flowers. There's no pool, but there is a hot tub - the perfect place to sip limoncello and watch the sunset over the ocean.
The biggest highlight was breakfast. Honestly, you will never find a more perfect place to wake up. The buffet had everything you could ask for - fresh pastries, fruit, hot coffee, meat, cheese - eating on the sunny terrace overlooking the mountains and ocean is just something you won't forget.
Our bed was big and comfortable, the air con worked, the windows were big and spotlessly clean. Some of the fittings in the room - like the minibar fridge and the hairdryer - were a bit on the old side, but this is part of the hotel's charm. Remember - this hotel is a 12th century building! Come here for a spectacular, central location, a memorable view and a comfortable stay.
