When: 2008

Comfortable and clean with a beautiful roof top breakfast room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Air conditioning not so great, if you need it. {4 stars}

Great location, right in the heart of the historic center. We were able to park our car immediately in front of the hotel - but they charged 10 euros extra for that. Our first day there was very warm and they insisted the air conditioning was working. (To us, it was pumping out 80 degree air.) Luckily it turned cool the next days, so it wasn't an issue.

We paid E140/night for a Superior room. I looked at the smaller ones and they had the same furniture just less space. Our room was not big - I would call it average size. We were on the 2nd floor and had a nice view of the little "largo" in front of the hotel.

Breakfast was very good, including lots of beautiful looking sweets, fruit, yogurt, cereal, ham, salumi, cheese and breads. Pretty good cappuccino, too.

Staff was great about helping with directions and dinner reservations. Although they always encouraged us to eat in their restaurant, we never tried it.
