Apart from its location and the most powerful hotel shower we've ever experienced there is little else to commend this hotel and certainly it's description as a small luxury hotel is as inflated as the Irish national debt.
Small rooms accompanied by a tiny bed, tired furnishings,uninspiring decor,limited TV channels,an A/C system with all the power of an elderly asthmatic and a lack of elementary things which should make up a luxury hotel experience such as free bottled water, a bathrobe and a newspaper outside the door in the morning.
Overall it's okayish but there's nothing to write home about with La Stampa on the envelope.
