We stayed in this hotel only for one night. We had a long way from Umbria to Milan, that is why we needed to have a rest somewhere in the middle of our way.
I chose this hotel because it had not bad TripAdvisor raiting. We had honeymoon and it was very important for me to find good hotel with a big suite, but not so expensive.
When you come in this hotel you will be impressed by interiors in old classical style. This villa more than 600 years old.
Staff is really friendly. We were met by the manager of the hotel who showed us the hotel. Also I was pleasantly surprised by 'Honestly bar' with self-service in the reception of the hotel. You can take what you want and you just have to fill the form and leave it there.
We lived in the suite 11. It was quite big and clean. Very nice that the designers are not saved on the hotel interior. All the furniture in the one style and you can see that it is quite expensive.
We liked pool very much. It is big enough and very clean.
There are two things which I did not like:
1) Restaurant. There is a buffet on the dinner (different every day).Unfortunately, the food was not tasty, I think for Italian hotel it is a big omission. If I live in this hotel more than one day I think it would be a big problem for me. But the hotel is not far from the town and you can have dinner there.
2) Smell in the hotel. The hotel smells strongly kitchen and not very pleasant perfume sticks.
