Selected this hotel because of its location, despite mixed reviews, because we we in a hurry to make a booking. Great start - we were upgraded to a quad room and, after having experienced a number of small rooms, we really appreciated the extra space. The room was decorated in a very traditional Italian style which appealed, but it also had modern features such as safe, fridge etc. View was only the very large light well, but this made it very quiet.
The first receptionist, Peitro, was outstanding. He was always extremely helpful, outlined the best approach to take for sightseeing, and gave us a range of options and advice for transport to the airport. Other receptionists were not as fluent in English as Peitro, but were still very pleasant.
Breakfast was fairly standard 3/4 star quality,and was in the downstairs dining room and not on the roof top.The serving staff were friendly. However even though the days were hot, it was very cool on the roof top at 7a,m, and it would have been unpleasant.
For a 4 star hotel, it was surprising that there were only plastic glasses in the room (despite having a fully stocked mini bar) and cleaning left something to be desired with a few bits of the previous occupants' rubbish under the bed throughout our stay. They need to address a few issues to really qualify for 4 star.
We enjoyed our stay because we felt we were staying in a comfortable Italian hotel, and not one of the rather anonymous chain hotels where we could have been in any city in the world.
