There are many things to praise about this hotel. I stayed there for two weeks in late April and my room, apparently in the basement (downstairs from the reception hall) actually looked out from about a two-storey height on to the ancient Roman theatre. The chef was excellent. In the two weeks I did not have the same meal twice, and each meal was cooked to a very tasty perfection. The waiters and the one waitress were friendly, efficient, and helpful. The room was pleasant, with a writing desk under a large window, and the bed (a single) was quite comfortable. BUT . . . the weather was not at its Italian kindest, and the hotel was, not to exaggerate, too cool for comfort. The central heating had been turned off. When I wanted to get warm I had to recourse to the hair dryer in the en-suite bathroom, as did many of my companions! My group leader asked for the heating to be turned on again, as pretty much every one of our group complained of the cold. But the manager refused. His excuse? That to turn it on would require the services of a heating consultant! We all believed that this was a blatant lie, and that the hotel was following some belief that one does not need heating after a particular date on the calendar.
So be warned if you intend to visit this hotel in the spring or autumn. Ensure that central heating will be on during your visit, or otherwise choose some other hotel.
