I've stayed at this hotel 3 times over the past year and have always been welcomed by lovely, personable staff.
The first two times I stayed the room was beautiful, a balcony overlooking the Basilica - it is absolutely stunning. The last time I stayed and booked the same room type I was given a smallish room, no balcony and the previous guest had been smoking despite it being a non smoking room.
Apparently I had arrived late in the day (7pm) and all of the balcony rooms were taken.
Its a fantastic hotel is every other respect, make sure you either get there early or ring and specify a balcony room.
