My husband just spent 19 days touring Italy from North to South and our stay here was disappointing. Upon our arrival, a note was affixed to the front door stating they would be back pronto. 10 minutes later a young lady arrived to check us in. She was very strange and didn't seem to have all her faculties.
Our room was on the second floor over the "lobby" and was pleasant enough and clean if not a little claustrophobic, the shower was the smallest I ever encountered.
What made our stay awful was the the persistent odor and stench of cigarette smoke, ever present. The proprietor is a constant smoker and although there was a sign behind the counter indicating no smoking, apparently it only applied to guests.
We had to put a towel in front of the door to keep the stench of the smoke out.
In the morning we tried to go down for a quick coffee but after going down two flights of stairs through the smoke, we couldn't stand sitting in the basement breakfast room, marinating in the smell.
The first thing I did when we arrived at our next hotel, was take a long shower and wash my hair!
