The hotel is located in the heart of the old town and was built in 1626. We dispose of a few lovely furnished rooms, a comfortable restaurant and a romantic courtyard, where to enjoy the summertime under the shadow of an old vine. All our 9 rooms are accessible by using different stairs and located all around the building. We have rooms towards the cortyard (quite), towards Via Borgo and to the little lane. The rooms are all furnished with affection and equipped with shower /WC, TV, W-Lan, hairdryer and a little safe. The rooms to the lane's have soundproofed windwows and a ceiling fan."Friendliness conquers hearts"With a lot of passion for your profession and a lot of care for details we could create a friendly and courteous ambiance, which is very appreciated by our guests. Relax and enjoy our hospitality!
