You really cannot beat the location; walk out the door and turn in any direction for loads of dinner choices, shopping possibilities, and the walk must include a trip to the park where you can catch the "fonicular" (red cable style car) and ride to the top of the really huge hill. Any shortcomings in the not-so-modern decor or furnishings should not deter you from experiencing this hotel.
During our stay (4 nights), a ring was left on the night stand and it wasn't there when we returned. The desk staff were right on it, called the cleaning person at home, and found out the ring was put in the nightstand drawer. After much searching, we did find it there in the very back of the drawer in a dark corner. A reward was worth the recovery of the ring and the Manager at the desk was just exceptional in her willingness to try to help us out.
Our tour included breakfasts and dinners (breakfasts were good) and the waiters were exceptional in their sense of humor and serving skills. Dinner would have been better if maybe ravioli or lasagna were offered. After all, don't travelers look forward to a taste of Italy?
Rooms were generously sized, the room key is on a ring with a big, heavy doorknob type of a thing (you're supposed to leave it at the desk when you go out), and the AC does not respond to any settings or adjustments you make, but that all is just part of the character and personality of the hotel.
It's a popular property for tours coming and going; the lobby seems to have a regular stream of folks waiting to check in. I would go back here again; I really liked the location and the community. Such a pretty setting!
