The reception is not your normal reception: it's in the middle of the restaurant. Once we were inside, we were greeted very kindly, so we felt very welcomed. The hotel had reserved the really cute "apartment" on the top floor for us, which has two levels, connected by stairs. Even though it smelled a bit stuffy, the bathroom with a whirlpool bathtub, living room, and the bed upstairs in the attic were all very clean. The apartment and the stairway leading up to it looked more like a B&B or an Inn than a hotel.
We wanted to try out the restaurant inside the hotel, but the waiters were so busy, we heard them apologizing for the long wait at the table next to us, and after we still hadn't received neither our menus nor any water after 15 minutes, we decided to leave and walk to the nearby Tutto il Giorno - which was an excellent idea. But I'll save that for a different review. :)
At night, back at the American Hotel, we slept really well, with the window of our cozy attic bedroom opened all night. The bedroom faces the back of the hotel, not the street in front of it, so you are guaranteed to sleep peacefully (at least now, in the off-season, hehe). The queen size bed was super-comfortable and the sheets and comforter kept us nice and warm.
