A work colleague and I shared one of Rita's apartments for one night whilst attending a conference at the nearby Albergo Sextantio. It was just what we needed and extremely good value. Comfortable, warm (we had unseasonably cold weather and Rita didn't hesitate in jacking up the heating for us) and welcoming with some uniquely Italian touches. For those from the UK and elsewhere who are unfamiliar with the B&B apartment concept, you do your own breakfast with provisions left in the kitchen for you - there is no communal dining area. This means that you can do your own thing in your own time and in your pyjamas. Note that local legislation dictates that all food served must be 'pre-confezionato' i.e. in sealed packages so don't be disappointed if this is what you get. It's a hygiene rule designed to protect the guest against food prepared in an unregulated kitchen and perhaps seems a little strange to those of us who expect a full fry-up. It's just the Italian way and Rita does it exceptionally well. To be recommended.
