My wife and I stayed here and I decided to splash out on a more expensive room, which was on the top floor. I had read reviews that the rooms were small but 'small' is a bit of an understatement... ours was tiny. There was barely enough room for the bed, and literally just a narrow space around it, though they have squeezed in a small dressing table and a tiny pouffe on which to sit at it. There was nowhere to put our suitcases except in the wardrobe, one at ground level, and nowhere to sit except on the bed. No chairs! No room for them. The bath room has no bath, just a shower, which admittedly is rather plush.
So I suppose you could say the room was 'intimate', and the bed was certainly very comfortable and it was all cosy and finished to a high standard, but really, I'm not sure I would be able to offer it with a clean conscience as a double room if I ran a hotel. Change the double for a single bed and stick a chair in there... but then you'd probably not rent it half the time.
On the plus side, the staff were very helpful, polite and friendly at all times. The internet only worked once by ethernet cable but thereafter I was given a WiFi access code, which was fine.
If you're big on breakfast, sadly the breakfast falls rather short... there's nothing cooked, and everything is very processed: cold meats and cheese were not your typical Italian style but more like what you'd buy in Asda in the UK. Individually-packaged 'croissants' with long best-before dates; tinned fruit salad; supermarket yogurts, and milk left out to lose its chill; juices with indiscernible flavours and unnatural colours. Um-Bongo anyone? And finally, the cappuccino was just filter coffee with frothed milk on top -- I'm afraid I wasn't fooled. Okay so I understand they want to keep costs down by offering a breakfast that doesn't require more than a single member of staff to cater for the entire hotel, but we'd rather have paid more and had better.
To redress the balance slightly for all that moaning (hey I'm British), I can say that the location is absolutely stunning, the views from the roof garden are stunning, the staff excellent, and on the whole we enjoyed our stay tremendously and would stay here again... we just might just lower our breakfast expectations, or grab breakfast in one of the many cafes around the Campo.
