I was going to write a long review..but here is the shortened version.
The hotel is an old palazzo in great area..our room looked over the gulf with stunning sunsets.
Room looked clean upon entering but the "fresco" that I noticed on wall was actually mold..everywhere.
It amazes me that the hotel staff..and maids do not notice this..especially that I now see that others have given similar reviews about mold.
They did move us..and the new room was free of mold.
The other complaint (also reviewed by others) is that at 9 pm there will be a loud music bass which travels through whole building..and will continue until after 1 am. Even when we moved from the mold room..they told us it would be a quieter room. It was..but the beat was still there. It amazes me that A) The maids don't report mold..and we are talking a lot of mold..B) the managers didn't even apologize about the mold and seemed to know about it and just see if we would ask to move. C) Why would travellers want to listen to a loud club beat??? Unreal So the hotel gets a 2..but has the potential of a 3.5 maybe 4
