We booked this Hotel based online reviews. It is a nice location in the old town, with ( very expensive!) parking. The hotel did not reply to our request for a parking space, so we did not find out until we got there whether we had one or not. Our room was very, very basic, even though we paid extra for an upgrade to superior . There was a bed, a dresser, a small TV mounted high on the wall. Also absolutely no view. When we inquired at the front desk the next morning,for the price of a better room, we were told they could not give us a price as the rooms were booked. The not very friendly woman at the desk also said we should have called the hotel directly before booking for a better room.She said she could not even tell us the price for a suite as the price would change according to when it was booked.In other words we were given the worst room we have had anywhere here in Italy, at premium price, apparently because we did not book directly with the hotel. The bathroom had a minuscule shower, and very basic amenities: two tiny bars of soap and two shower caps. In our opinion nowhere near a four star hotel.
