I have to say -- this 'hotel' was exactly what I imagined staying in Italy would be like. The rooms were VERY tiny but with beautiful furniture, and antique ceilings. It was just what I had hoped it would look like, and yet the staff quite possibly could have ruined our trip if we hadn't been so happy to be there in the first place.
The woman at the front desk didn't speak English, but wasn't interested in responding in Italian either- when we spoke the little but comprehensible bit that we knew. She was impatient and questioned us each time we arrived and left the building- even though we had keys and were quite free to do so. The man who was there when we checked out, however, was very accomodating at least, if not friendly.
I'm usually not bothered by unfriendly staff but in a small guest house, it's hard to ignore. The rooms were charming, and relatively clean although much too small for more than a couple. All in all- if you don't mind the staff and can stay in one of the top rooms- preferably facing the rear of the building, it's well worth a nice romantic couple of nights.More
