Each evening at midnight the trash is picked up, crashing glass wakes you up. About 6am it starts all over. The staff smiles and acts like they never have heard of this. After day 3, you stop believing them. And if for 1800 euros you expect to control the thermostat, think again. Adjust it all you like, but their computer won't let it go below 75 degrees. The affable staff once again smiles and says "Italians don't like ac"
Lovely hotel, great breakfast,great location, overpriced and exasperating. Sorry, taking my euros elsewhere to get a good nights sleep in a 72 degree room
