Having just returned from a 3 night trip with my husband I felt the need to write a review as this hotel was absolutely perfect. The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly and offered to make reservations and bookings for our trips and restaurants which was extremely helpful as we speak very little Italian. The room was a great size with facilities for cooking if required (we didn't!) but would be great for a family or fussy eaters. The location is great and within easy walking distance to all the major areas. We didn't get time to check out the spa so cannot comment on that although I wish we had as our feet were aching from walking, walking, walking. It is that kind of place that you just want to explore a bit further.... The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the train station but would advise a taxi, for under ten euros if you have a lot of luggage as the streets are a little bumpy and busy. The cocktail bar Brown Sugar is great and Max is a fantastic barman who introduced us to some wonderful drinks. We didn't find this until the last morning but if you turn right out of the hotel on the next corner you will find a cafe which serves English style breakfasts for anyone who doesn't want croissants or ham and cheese paninis in the morning. Well worth the extra £ and glad I listened to others reviews when booking. Great place great location great service. We hope to return.... One last tip if you need an iron / ironing board ask in advance as not all rooms have one.
