Vander Urbani is a great hotel. It has an excellent location -- right in the center of the lovely old town -- but still only a 15-minute walk to the bus station. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the staff was friendly/helpful. The breakfast was good, with a nice selection of fresh fruit. The rooftop provided a great space with pretty views of the city. We stayed for three nights, and overall, I would recommend the hotel. However, there were some areas in which the hotel could improve. For example, we had some issues with the heating system; our room kept getting too warm even though we had pre-selected our desired temperature. And something was wrong was with our sliding bathroom door. It frequently got stuck and didn't open and close properly. We alerted the front desk. They apologized but said that it couldn't be fixed until Monday (after we were planning to check out). In a strange coincidence, we later found out that friends of ours had stayed in the exact same room as us, one week before, and they agreed that the bathroom door was problematic. So the hotel should have detected and solved the problem before our arrival. Also, the hotel only gave us one small tube of body wash the first day -- nothing on the second day, even though the tube was almost empty by then. On the third day, we had to ask for more. Such things should be replaced automatically. When returning to our room after sightseeing, we were also consistently surprised to see that our towels were crumpled (exactly as we had left them); no one had replaced or at least folded them. There are also no towel hooks in the room, and nowhere really to put your wet towel after leaving the shower. That struck us as a design flaw.
