I stayed at the Torre Guelfa in Oct 2006 on a Rick Steves Tour! While the hotel wasn't opulent or ritzy, it was fun because of how unique the hotel is! Every room is 100% entirely different in decor, layout, furniture, etc! I know this because people on my tour started going room to room just to check out what other people had. My room had extremely high cathedral ceilings & a HUGE window & really large armoire. My mom's room had a step-down from the front door area, wood flooring, and a canopy bed. My sisters room was so different! When you opened the door you'd have to go up an entire flight of stairs and then at the top was a small sitting area and a bedroom behind curtains! So cool! And, of course, the tower at the top is amazing for views. I'm attaching some of the pics I took from the top of it. When you stay at this hotel you really start to feel like "wow, I really am in Italy".... and since you can tell the hotel is so old, you really start to get a sense of history, especially when you go to the top of the tower. Now, be prepared, the accomodations aren't luxury - I'm a picky traveler so of course I wondered if they ever change the comforter on the bed, I know they didn't change the sheets every day, and the carpeting in my room as a little mildewy. But I don't regret staying here, it was just so unique & something that you can never really experience anywhere else!
