My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night with my parents. It's a lovely hotel, excellent staff and a wonderful breakfast. There was some live music outside the hotel until about 1 a.m. which was a bit of a nuisance but the area is well known for being a bit noisy, so 1 a.m. isn't too bad... More

Rather good hotel on the very edge of Borgo Vecchio: it is up to you if you consider it a positive feature ;-) 7 stories building of strange shape that defined also the shape of the rooms with nothing special to mention.

The Vecchio Borgo was booked for us by the civic group sponsoring our business trip. The two nights we spent here were comfortable and the breakfast was generous and tasty. Our room had a balcony, tiny, but with an interesting view of the neighborhood and the mountains. We had no issues with the cleanliness of the hotel. Transportation was provided... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and the rooms were lovely, a bit quirky ,not bland like many hotels. I loved the shutters , the arched cupboards and the fabric up the wall.
