My wife and I met Germano at the train station and he gave us a ride to the rooms. He and Cristina were very nice and very helpful. She provided us with a map and showed us how to get to all the interesting places.
The room was much bigger than expected and the bathroom was big by U.S. standards. It had a shower, sink, bidet, and toilet with plenty of space to spare. They keep there rooms extremely clean. In the morning, they bring breakfast to your room on a rolling table. YOu are served a pot of coffee and tea with pastries, rolls, chease, and a boiled egg. It was more than we were expecting considering the rate we were paying.
I find the other review (the one bashing Cristina House) very hard to believe. This is very good place run by very nice people.
