B&B L'Emporio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2014

We spent three nights at B&B Emporio. We tried to book the nearby Casa sul Lago (someway managed by the same people) but the place was full so we were offered the B&B Emporio.

Since our stay was managed by the staff of La Casa sul Lago, and we also dined there, I'm going to write a separate review for that place as well, and I will focus on the "sleeping" part in this B&B Emporio review.

We slept in "La Camera Gialla" (the yellow room). It's a bit small, but it has nice decor. There is a private bathroom, a fridge and a terrace. The room and the bathroom were clean and well kept.

Staff (by La Casa sul Lago) was awesome. We also met the manager of the B&B: he was very nice as well, and very willing to provide help and information. Breakfast was great, with gluten free options provided (one of us is on a gluten free diet).

Our dog was accepted and welcome.

Pricing was very reasonable: besides the two free nights (a gift box we received), we purchased an extra one for 50 €.

I would definitely recommend this place. It is located in Torricella (just 100 meters from the Trasimento lake): Torricella isn't the prettiest of the towns on lake, but it's a handy base if you have a car. I also suspect it to be a fun place in high season (it was pretty deserted off-season, which was very relaxing however).

I'm a bit torn about my rating. On the one hand, the rooms were quite nice, the employee was friendly and helpful, and it was a good price. On the other hand, we had trouble finding the employee when we needed him, and found the location to be a bit mediocre.

Part of the problem, I suspect, is that it wasn't really the right time of year for Lake Trasimeno. It's a place which clearly sees a lot of tourists some times of the year, although tourists were pretty scarce when we were there (we were the only people staying in the B&B for example). I suspect we missed out on a lot of the best of charm of the lake and that some of the service-related issues were directly related to the time of year we stayed.

We showed up fairly late, and weren't able to find anyone to let us in to our room; we were given suggestions about where to find employees if no one was in, but no one was there either. They did give us a phone number, but without a European cell phone calling was a fair bit of trouble (although it did eventually work). I'm fairly sympathetic to the employee -- it's pretty hard to wait around for just 1 set of guests -- but on the other hand, we warned the owners at the time of the booking that we would be showing up late and didn't have a cell phone. When we found him, he was quite apologetic and upgraded our room. He also had a number of helpful recommendations for dinner and was clearly a very nice guy.

The room itself (as previously mentioned, an upgrade over what we actually paid for) was quite nice -- large and with a nice bathroom. There was a lake-view, although it was over a parking lot and street. The bed was comfortable, and the room was kitschy but nice. There was even a fireplace. It was quiet, and we both slept very well -- maybe the best night of sleep I had on a 2-week trip.

Because we were the only guests, they didn't serve breakfast (this was fully disclosed at the time we made our booking).

On the whole, it's a very pleasant place, and I suspect the service is quite good when there are more guests around. The location is mediocre, but certainly not a minus. I wish I could give a higher overall rating.
