This is a second floor B&B with a 23-step staircase to the entrance. The rooms are tastifully decorated but very dark. Even in the middle of a bright, sunny day with all the lights on in the room, there is insufficient light for reading, studying maps, etc. The hallway and tiny lobby area are even dimmer. None of the rooms are sound-proof, so one feels no privacy. Residents can hear others coughing, using the bathrooms, talking during phone calls, conversing during breakfast. The breakfasts were lovely, and Valeria makes a fabulous cappuccino. She speaks no English but is warm and caring. Alfredo is bilingual and made museum reservations for us which was very helpful, but sometimes gave us inaccurate information. The guest computer and Wi-fi wasgreatly appreciated.
