The good – the hotel view was excellent, just to seat there and relax and enjoy the view was wonderful. It is uphill, but the views are worth it. Carlo and Piera were both very friendly. The breakfast was good. The view from our room window was fantastic.
The bad – our room (#25) was very run down, old, ugly furniture and we could hear the TV from the next room as if it was in our room.
The ugly – upon arrival we decided to walk to the hotel – big mistake! The road does not have a sidewalk so it is very dangerous, especially because of all the curves. Plus we were carrying our luggage. I would not recommend walking there. Second thing – taxis are very few. We went out for dinner at La Grotta (good restaurant) and when we left we called a taxi from the list of taxis that Carlo provided. Well, one driver was off that night (Saturday night), the other one was asleep, and the 3rd one did not answer. We went back to the restaurant and asked if they could call a taxi – they called exactly the same people we did. We made it back thanks to the courtesy of one young hotel bar manager who offered us a ride after we explained our situation. It wasn’t that late, I believe it was 10pm. So, if you stay at this hotel, make sure you have an early dinner.
