For those of you who expect hotel-like services, amenities (small shampoos, conditioners, soaps) and fully-served breakfast buffets I would recommend you look elsewhere. This is a do-it-yourself place with simple, adequate furnishings and (the room we had was) typically small. The bed was not very comfortable, very hard without a box spring and covered in simple linens and a not-thick-enough blanket. When we asked for some conditioner/shampoo though, Gianluca showed up a bit later with a full-sized bottle...I think he got it from his own bathroom.
Ok, that's all the complaints. Here's what I have to say overall though: You will struggle to find a better host. I know you won't match the location. You certainly will not match the price. The place is very clean and well taken care of. Like other reviews, you share a common area and kitchen with a few other rooms. It's as if you have your own kitchen but you don't have to stock it. All the food he had available was fresh and good.
I have read that others found it noisy. Our room was whisper quiet, save for one barking dog just as we were trying to go to sleep, but he quieted eventually.
When we arrived (from an early flight), our host, Gianluca, lead us up to the roof terrace where he took the time to answer our questions and make us feel welcome. After such a long flight, we needed some rest. He checked us in early so we could. Unfortunately, he had some renovation/expansion work going on, tons of hammering and scraping. With weary eyes, I asked him if there would be any way for the workers to take a break for a while. Gianluca, said it would be difficult to change the work but said he would see what he could do. The pounding stopped. I am sure our request was difficult to meet, but he did it for us. Wonderful customer service.
Gianluca went out of his way before we arrived to hep us with tour arrangements and itinerary suggestions. His efforts saved us (literally) hundreds of dollars. If you need a private, guided tour of anywhere, just ask Gianluca for help. Incredible.
I would recommend this place for adult travelers.
