We have just stayed 2 nights and our room was by far the best we have stayed in so far this trip. Very well laid out and lovely to have a separate sitting area and to have movies, TV shows etc (in English) available free of charge at any time although it was a bit of a challenge to sort out how to work the system.
What makes this hotel so amazing is the friendly staff superbly led by Tommaso and Fabrizio. They made us feel very welcome and all their recommendations for restaurants were perfect.
The Hotel is not perfect as any old building has limitations and the stairs leading up to the lift were a challenge but Orlando was on hand to help with bags which certainly made a difference. Breakfast was a perfectly adequate continental style so anyone needing hot food may be disappointed. Happy Hour was a lovely time to sample some local wines and chat with other guests and staff and find out what people were doing and get some tips.
This is a wonderful hotel and the very friendly atmosphere is a welcome change from some of the surly service offered in restaurants and shops. I would recommend this hotel to anyone apart from those not able to manage stairs but my husband with his two knee replacements managed perfectly (but slowly)
The laptops in the room are a wonderful addition and the speed of the connection was a joy after many frustrating hours in other hotels with their so called free connection.
