As other reviewers have indicated, this is a well-located place to stay offering really good value in an otherwise expensive city. The four rooms are in a residential block - three are good sized but room 103 is tiny … more of that later. Nicely decorated and very comfortable, but take your slippers as the floors are tiled. Breakfast is served on a tray to your room. This is fine, but it means there is no choice - and sadly the croissants are not fresh, but long life (the wrappers on ours were dated as use by Feb 2012). You will be welcomed when you arrive, but no one lives on the premises - this means that any help you may need is only available in the mornings when the helpful attendant is present to serve breakfast and make up the rooms, not what you might expect from a B&B. The downside to our otherwise very pleasant stay was that even before breakfast on the first day we were asked to speak to the owner, by phone. He requested that we move into what transpired to be a tiny room (103), for one night only, to allow for someone else with a child to have our larger room 101. So yes, we did, not wanting to appear churlish, but on the next day when we expected to be moved back we were offered a different room again! Three rooms in three nights is not what you expect when you have a long-standing booking (we booked 4 months ago). We stood firm this time and asked for our agreement to be honoured, which it was, but it was left to the attendant to sort out - the owner not seeming to care. The first two days of our long awaited holiday were spoiled by this unnecessary complication caused by a booking error on part of the owner. We didn't find the free wifi mentioned by another reviewer though … and the BBC World Service on the Italian freeview box wasn't tuned - but that didn't matter too much!
