Patria Palace is very conveniently located for exploring the old city, which is beautiful. It is approximately a 20 minute walk from the bus station and train station - about half way between. We had booked a double room, the only one I could get when I went online, and were given a pleasant double room with a lovely large bathroom. Unfortunately, it looked out on to a flat roof and walls so we asked to change, which they agreed to only reluctantly, I felt. We had to pay 20 euros a night extra for a slightly bigger room with a very narrow bathroom, which only had a shower. It did, however, have a view of the church and piazza, which was a great improvement. It also had a small balcony. The marble in the bathroom was impressive though the shower was never hot and temperature was inconsistent. The reception staff were not particularly friendly and gave us no information about anything, including when and where breakfast and dinner were. We had to ask and if I hadn't seen on the Internet site that there was a roof terrace then we may never have found it. It was a pleasant enough area but did not have a particularly good view of the city. The information in the room was also poor. Both breakfast and dinner were very good. There was a good choice at breakfast, including fresh orange juice and coffee plus the biggest selection of teas I have seen in a hotel. Dinner was well presented and nicely cooked - and portions generous. The waiters were more friendly and helpful than reception, though the porter was welcoming. Overall, it was a very comfortable hotel, well located in the centre but I wasn't impressed by the attitude at reception.
