I chose Albergo Celide based on the location (near train station and just outside wall for peace), size (small), decor and amenities (modern), spa with turkish bath and free bikes. My stay was too short but was wonderful and I would definitely stay here again. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was ample and delicious, and the room, while small was extremely comfortable, with luxury bed linens. In fact, the bed and pillows were the most comfortable I've ever slept on, far superior to most hotels. I had a single room and it was the first time I've ever had a full size bed in a truly single room, it was the best single room I've ever stayed in and the price was reasonable for a 4* hotel in a great location in high season. The rooms also have independent air which is very nice. The spa was fantastic, for 14E you get a spa kit with bathrobe, spa towel and flip flops and 90 mins. of use of the finish sauna (dry), turkish bath (steam) and large jacuzzi hot tubs with very powerful jets. There is also an "emotional" shower, as they call them, which sprays a fine herbal mist. You must reserve ahead of time as they only allow a max. of 6 guests at one time, so it's very peaceful and not overrun. I took every bit of the 90 mins. and was in heaven after a long day of bike riding and exploring the old town. They were very kind to let me use a bike on the day I was checking out, well beyond the check-out time and they held my bag for me until it was time to leave for the train, a ten-min. walk away. I couldn't have been more pleased with Celide and highly recommend it.
