The Granduca is a very nice and elegant boutique hotel. You will not be disappointed. They have taken great care with the details. Everything is really well done. It smells of the old Italian charm. That's the fresh rosé part...it smells nice! The thorn bit goes something like this...I checked in at 2 pm and the front desk gal told me...sorry we do not have a room ready...I had requested for a high floor to which she replied....sorry we are full and have no high floor rooms. I was a little disappointed as I had requested a month earlier. I told the girl that I am a going to talk to my company folks who have a significant contract with the hotel and also post it on the Trip Advisor. Magically not one, but two rooms 'appeared' on the high floors. I was sent an apology card and a welcome drink with dates and nuts! After that I had no complaints...the service was great...almost like in the Far East in a 5-star hotel (a dwindling perk in North America).
You will like it...take my word for it!
