I picked this hotel on the recommendation of a colleague who had stayed there, and because it was close to the Palazzo Stelline (2 mins walk) where I was attending an exhibition.
The entrance is through a courtyard, and I had a room at the back of the building, meaning it was very quiet despite being on a fairly main road. The rooms are nicely decorated in an old fashioned way that suits the building. Everything is spotlessly clean and tidy. There lots of nice little touches, such as the little basket of chocolates in the room that was re-filled daily, baskets of magazines avaialble in the corridor in different languages etc.
Breakfast was delicious - 2 croissants, one savoury filled and one sweet, are brought to your table, along with a cappucino. I was asked without prompting if I would prefer tea (probably because I'm English!). There was a selection of nice pastries, cheeses, and chocolates also, all arranged on pretty cake stands. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
Location is good for tourists - about 15 mins walk to the city centre and cathedral.
For business travellers - fast wireless broadband in room with no 'hiccups.'
TIP - if you want to see the Last Supper painting in the church 2 doors down, you need to book a ticket well in advance. Paolo kindly attenpted to help me book one (I e-mailed him 2 weeks in advance of my trip) but unfortunately it was too late.
Loved this hotel. As a lone businee traveller it was a cosy relaxing place to come back to, but it would also be nice for a romantic break!
