When I first read the glowing Tripadvisor reviews for the Althea Inn, I was ‘a bit sceptical’. Nowhere could be quite that good, could it? Now, having spent 6 days there, I’m adding my own ‘excellent’ review.
As others have said, first impressions of the area are not that great — but Alessandro’s B&B on the 5th floor is a haven of tranquillity in a bustling city. Although it’s located close to a major road and conveniently close to transport links, it was very quiet.
The accommodation was clean and comfortable and very obviously ‘cleaned and tidied’ every day, while we were out.
As it was March, it wasn’t warm enough to enjoy breakfast on the terrace — but with afternoon temperatures reaching 20C during our stay, it was a wonderful place to relax before going out to dinner in one of the local restaurants.
We’re already planning to go back for a few more days next year.
