This hotel is like the ones we read of in novels, where the aristocracy came for the winter season in years past. Photos of past visitors- the King of Siam, King Edward VIII, Juan Carlos of Spain-line the halls. Large rooms & baths, the most comfortable beds we have had in Italy, a wonderful breakfast buffet on the terrace facing the ocean make up for the few spots that need repair.
The staff was very helpful. We were not overwhelmed by the dinner food but the appetizers and drinks on the patio bar, complete with pianist playing the "old songs" were great. Lots of little "goodies" came with each drink ordered and after our 4 course Italian lunch satisfied me in place of dinner. Would stay here again.
Internet in lobby & bar free-ask for password at desk. In room it cost 9Euro per day. A five star hotel should have free wi fi!
