We booked about an hour before arrival. La Casa di Morfeo was once a real casa of a rich Floridian. It doesn't look like a hotel from the outside. Only ancient wooden doors guarding the entrance. The hotel is on the second floor of the building, assessable by ancient worn stairs or a modern glass elevator. Samuela at reception speaks English fluently and was a great help. Showing us where to go and eat where the local do. We don't like eating in tourist spots. The hotel is modern and new and beautifully decorated. The room are named after flowers and decorated in that color. Ours were white with touches of black. The most elegant room I've slept in for awhile. The huge bed and soft pillows comfortable, big shower and lots of hot water. The breakfast great with fresh pastries and great coffee too. All the sights worth seeing is within easy walking distance.
