We stayed at the Castello on a deal from Travelzoo. We dont normally go for this sort of 'bargain' but it seemed almost too good to be true. I read the reviews on Tripadvisor so I felt like I had a pretty good sense of what we were getting into.
The location is fantastic. The place itself is really spectacular on the outside, but the inside is worn and tired. The apartment we stayed in was badly in need of paint and some fresh furniture, We didn't want to sit on the couches or chairs as they just seemed so dirty. Despite the fact that we were charged for daily heat, the rooms were very cold and damp - and only heated at certain hours.
There were quite a few other guests staying at the place - and since sound bounces off the stone walls of the courtyards - the noise and cigar smoke smell wafted right into our apartment every night. The restaurant is adequate if you dont feel like heading out in the evening (we only ate the pizza one night) - but they dont have a wine list (just the house wine) - and the service was very pleasant. There are lots of good restaurants nearby - so don't be afraid to head out.
But - it was a cheap place to stay. It was close to everything we were visiting. I just wished that I was a little more comfortable coming back to the Castello at the end of the day. Its nice to relax at your hotel sometimes and this place just missed the mark. Unless you are getting a great low price - and are not too picky - its fine - but I'm sure there are better places to stay in the area.
