We stayed at the Hotel Santa Maria for three nights (myself and 2 freinds). We had a triple room which had one double bed and one single. The room was large enough for three but three women sharing a small bathroom was always a bit ambitious.
The room was clean and towels changed regularly. The bathroom had both bath and good shower (over bath) as well as hand held shower.
The courtyard was very pretty, we ate breakfast there every morning and enjoyed the last hours of the day chatting in this very peaceful environment.
We used the hotels recommended transfer service and was picked up at the airport by a polite driver, even after a flight change meant some re-arranging of pick up times.
The hotel is very secure, large gates protect the area and are locked at night. As well as this the room had a small electronic safe for valuables.
The best bit of the hotel is the location, if you enjoy eating and drinking in typically italian restaurants then this is your place. The hotel is perfectly located to enjoy all of the facilities of the district, and yet is very peaceful and quiet.
The only downside we had was that we booked a taxi via the hotel to take us to an organised tour and it was very late. This wasnt the hotels fault but it took a lot of persuasion to get the receptionist to call the taxi company to find out where the taxi had got to.
