Seriously the indoor pool was amazing , and the spa in general , the fact it's in such an amazing quite old world setting , apparently the monks lived here once upon a time back in the 1600s ...lucky monks I say ...:) it reminded me of my favorite tombraider game ....I felt wonderful swimming around in the pool all to myself , looking up at the fake candles in the classic Italian framed windows full of sunlight and greenery from the court yard outside ..the hotel seems to me to be a stopover for mostly business types , but I found the staff most welcoming , the young tall man who made me my coffees in the morning, I'm sorry I can't remember his name but he was lovely and smiley as was the lovely young female lady who spoke perfect Aussie English to me , :) seeing I'm Ozzie , and nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff if I had requests like the light not working in my bathroom ...just small things ...I did find the staff in the spa which is separate abit rude and condescending , and not really willing to be all that helpful even when I wanted to enquire about booking a massage ...their loss on money not mine ...:) the food was your normal Europe breakfast to me ..and a nice selection of most things , , I loved this hotel and it is amazing , and exceptional and the wonderful service and staff , great beds and well cleaned rooms , I found the only thing I don't like was the fact it was hot at certain times in the day and and they had air conditioning but wouldn't use it and this seemed stupid to me considering if your paying for it and I stayed five nights ..,.I have never experienced anything like that ....and it's the only thing I found to be a let down in this majestic hotel ...I would like to exprience the outdoor pool when I come back one day as the staff said it was not ready till summer ....this hotel would be one of my picks as one of the best hotels in this smallish old town full of history and now I am part of that history ....:)
