Good hotel

The hotel itself is great and well located. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff was very professional and friendly. Only a couple of things they can improve: the room service food was not really good (except their pasta) and housekeeping service could be better; some empty bottle stayed in our room for the whole stay (3 nights) and minibar was not replaced. ANyway we had a great stay, thanks to everyone.

Room is good size bartender was nice

The hotel is a little off the main center. The beds are HARD and not comfortable. The blow dryer did not work well and the bathroom had dust it was nice to have a balcony but the view was not good. The breakfast was ok.

So dim I had to use a flashlight

I took one star off my rating because the hotel rooms are very poorly lit. Once the sun went down I had to get out a flashlight even to see into my suitcase. The room we had was small and a bit noisy as it was adjacent to a staircase. The breakfast buffet was just okay, and the least good of four hotels in Italy on this trip. Pasta I ate in the restaurant one night was tasty. This hotel is used by large tour groups.
