I already knew that car parking was a problem near the residence. I booked a parking space a month earlier (they have only 3 places available). When I got there, all of them were taken. It was quite stressful to find a place to park every day. The roads are very narrow and packed.
I had to wait almost one hour for someone to answer the ring bell, there was no reception and no one seemed to know new guests were arriving. There were simply no one who could speak any language other than Italian. Apparently, there is just one person there that speaks English and she wasn't there. So I just kept waiting outside, literally on the side of the road inside the car.
When she arrived, we had to carry our heavy luggage all the way down stairs to the room on huge levels of staircase! There was no one to carry for us.
The residence was also very far from the city center, which worsened the parking problem. The only way to go down without the car was down 900 steps!!!! It may seem ok, but it is quite A LOT!
The only positive comment I have is the breath taking view. The room was also quite ample. But I would not recommend to any of my friends. There are better places around!
