Great location - 10 minutes walk to city centre, 15 minutes driving to highway. Nice middle-age building, renovated. Pool, privat parking (bit costly), a/c, garden with chairs and relax area. Good restaurants in the same street, minimarket 100 metres far.

Lovely hotel in a beautiful building. The corridors and stairwell make you feel you are in a very posh hotel. Room was spacious and bright.

There is a charge for the pool but you know this upfront and we used it one afternoon after a hard few days sightseeing. Is a bit out of town, but quiet do s good nights sleep..

Hotel Royal is a lovely vintage building, with crystal chandeliers and paintings. Especially the lounge/Wifi area is beautiful. The hotel is situated at walking distance from the main attractions of the city and in a relatively quiet neighbourhood. This is all good. But still...
The breakfast buffet had coffee from a machine, no eggs and fruit from a tin (in Tuscany!). The Wifi only worked downstairs. I heard a lot of arguments about the bill. Many guests didn't know that parking on hotel grounds costs an extra 25 euro's, the swimming pool costs an extra 8 euro's pp. pd. and even the use of the room safe costs extra. The receptionist was reluctant to help with booking a museum in advance. All in all: a nice building that could/should be run better.

Nice premises, nice location but poor result. Should be well maintained, much more cleaner. Better not to offer breakfast if this is the quality. Should also avoid taxi cheats when hotel calls for taxi.

Great hotel, it suits the atmosphere in the city. It is an old villa with parking space and a pool, this is big enough for the guests and clean. 10 minutes walk to the center. We had a room nearby the reception. A large room with a double bed and 2 single beds, the breakfast is simple but oke. There is no diner served but you can always ask for coffee or other drinks. It is possible to eat or sit in the garden.

Old building with dated decor with a very firendly staff. I had the opportunity to practice my italian and they gave me good information on places to visti (or not to visit) in the city. Not far from city centre with a small supermarket nearby, I also found a good painting supplies shop not far from the hotel also with very friendly sales person.

Clean Friendly and excellent value. Pool area is tranquil and 10 minutes to city centre. I unreservedly recommend this delightful villa. Staff at counter are courteous and helpful. A welcoming smile is assured. It seems to me that if everyone paid 1/2 an Euro extra the pool would be free to all but logic in Italy is not a given. This is a top place to stay.
