This B&B is fantastically situated right in the centre of town, near the main market area and the central square. The rooms are really well decorated and it has a bath which seems to be a rarity. The wifi is also free and strong. Like a lion in the savannah. However the main let downs are the lack of pillows and the low ceiling. But if you are under 5ft tall then that's fine. The staff are knowledgable and speak good English. Of course it would have been polite for me to have learnt Italian properly, but then I'm a British tourist, people are just thankful that I'm not smashing the place up in a lager-fuelled football rage. Best not to stay here if you're a vegan, the breakfast is coffee and croissant, and the Italians still have a weird obsession with drinking another creature's breast milk. All in all though, a lovely hotel.

Because BAD is more than a sleeping experience. ... more less
