We had three nights here in a 'junior suite' and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was comfortable and had a small balcony. The hotel is a bit like a maze with lots of outdoor space and also had a pleasant roof terrace.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and the food was lovely. One thing to be aware of is that certain things on the menu take a little while to prepare - for example Parmesan risotto takes approximately 30 minutes. However, the food is worth the wait.
The hotel is very well located for exploring the town. Our first day coincided with the big religious parade on the fifth Sunday in Lent and the town was very busy. The hotel had leaflets and maps for this parade which were very useful.
All in all, this was a relaxing stay in a busy town.
