What an excellent hotel. Courteous staff, clean hotel, especially the bathrooms. Great Americal style breakfast. Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, croissants- regular, chocolate and lemon, deli meats, fruits, breads, orange juice, coffee, etc. NO potatoes, sausage or ham. But plentiful and sufficient for a breakfast. The only other thing that I felt was on the negative side was no ice buckets or ice machines. That apparently is not a European thing. You can either call room service for ice, in which case they will charge you 5 Euro. Or you can take a plastic bag up to the rooftop bar and request some there, which I did. Nicola was particularly helpful at the front desk. Great guy. I called him Pope Nicola. He recommended the Ristorante Piccolo Mundo and La Caesarina, both only walking blocks away and excellent. Overall the hotel was comfortable and cozy. Quiet for the most part. The restaurant on the roof was great, both food and service. Just one warning; alcohol is extremely
expensive. I ordered 2 Grey Goose vodka's with tonic water. They brought me 2 small bottles of tonic water and 2 glasses 1/4 filled with the vodka with ice and they charged me 32 Euros. 16 Euro per drink? That's like $22 American dollars per drink. I asked, and Absolute would have been 12 Euros per drink. A bottle of Heineken was 7 Euros (about $9). The next day, we went to the local supermarket and they were selling 700ml bottles of Absolute for 10 Euro's. Moral: buy your liquor, keep it in your room and drink it there before you go out. I hope this review helps you make an accurate decision for a place to stay.
