Giolli is a good value low cost hotel. It is not superb or the pinnacle of excellence as claimed by some reviewers (were they genuine?) but it provides a good basic product with no frills. We had a standard double (strange because we had paid for a standard twin, but ce la vie); room 218; small but adequate looking out onto central well; fridge (empty), small bathroom with overbath shower - small enough to be awkward to negotiate; ancient Daewoo TV with only Italian stations; limited room to store or hang clothes; very firm mattress. When we asked for a kettle for the room we were told that one could not be found - so if you want one I advise you to bring your own travel kettle. We were disturbed by noise from the floor above (which is not part of the hotel) and by an occasional metallic zinging sound (possibly from a nearby lift mechanism). The buffet breakfast was spartan although laid out in a clean and comfortable breakfast room. On the plus side the room and the whole hotel were spotlessly clean and Carlos at the desk was charming, multi-lingual and very helpful, recommending an excellent, nearby, reasonably priced restaurant. As previously stated this is not the great hotel described in some reviews BUT does not present itself as such (it is after all a 3 star, not a 4 or 5). It is good value, well situated and well run and those on a budget will not be disappointed so long as their expectations are reasonable.
