B&B Residenza Umberto is one of the worst hotels I have ever been to. After a five-hour-flight we had to stay in front of the hotel for twenty minutes waiting for the owner who opened the door!
We had a room with NO WINDOW (only an interior window) and a terrible bathroom. I saw the representative of the owner only twice,to get to the hotel and pay the bill. Although the big advantage is the location in the centre of the town.
I can't say that this hotel is a nightmare but it's very bad.
