Certainly finding this hotel was like geo-cacheing/ orienteering but once you struck the jackpot it was worth the effort. When you get to the centre in front of the famous church look for a small hotel sign attached to a wall near the church and go up a very narrow street to the hotel. We were never more than 500m from the hotel but in the dark it took us 2 hours to find it after the GPS failed to help and the map on my i-phone ran out of battery. A lovely young local couple had never heard of it but rang and got directions for us then took us there, following them on their scooter. Parking is a problem if the place is busy. Our room was nothing extraordinary but rooms on the first floor would have had a view looking out over the city. There is a large patio where all can enjoy the view. It is definitely a tranquil sanctuary after the nerve wrack of driving on Italian roads. We liked the local paintings which were displayed in all the main areas - a nice touch.
