Three adults stayed 10 nights in a suite - room 111. The location is great, in the old town, a few minutes walk from the palazzi, train station, and harbor. The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly when needed to control a group of noisy 10-11 year old children that invaded the hotel one weekend. The suite was unusual, with a very large central room, small single room near entry door, a small, tightly arranged bathroom, and a kitchen. Front rooms are over a busy bus stop with heavy traffic from 7:00 until 22:00. The side alley was a pedestrian walkway that carried the sound of conversations into the room quite easily. The breakfast was good-- various breads, cheese, cold cuts, yogurt, orange juice, and a great selection of coffees and teas. The Wi-Fi never worked during our stay, but the public computer usually was available with a short wait.
