Yes, the state of the building and structure is not exactly what can be described as good. But one ought not to judge the book by the cover - which is the case with this hotel. Altho much work is needed for this centuries' old palazzo to come alive once more. The rooms are quite Spartan (nothing really wrong with this tho), the spirit of the exterior architecture is missing in the rooms which is a shame.
The staff and location made this hotel an excellent choice for our holiday - August 2012. I will visit the hotel again when they get their bar up and running and the kitchen as as well.
