We stayed here for 5 days until November 3rd. It was really great! The rooms were good if a little small, but I was out all day every day so it didn't really matter -, everything stuck me as very Italian (mind you, I've never been to Italy before.

Great size room overlooking the port but very dated and the bathroom needed a really good clean. Breakfast was very limited- okay if you like banana yogurt! If you are like me and rely...
