Easy to find if you have clear directions as it is close to the central station, and of course close to all the sights.
Reception was excellent and the room we were given had everything you would expect from a 3 star hotel.
Buffet Breakfast had a good variety of food and no problem with quality or quantity. This same area is actually the in-house Restaurant......you really haven't eaten 'Italian' until you have eaten here - the food was superb and the waiter was exuberant - we loved him with his friendly and enthusiastic demeaner. Not only did he ask to 'escort' my wife outside to show her the wonderful garden and jacuzzi but he also was more than happy to supply recipes for some of the delicious food we enjoyed and with some dishes he was prepared to 'stake his reputation' on them - I am pleased to say his reputation is certainly intact.
A fun place in an excellent location and would certainly recommend.
