When we arrived at the hotel, we were surprised that whilst the person on reception was polite, neither she nor her father were at all friendly - a "smile-free" zone. Perhaps they had had an unhappy experience earlier that day. Still, it was a disappointing contrast to our experience everywhere else in Italy. To be fair, the next day, the same woman made more effort to be pleasant.
We encountered a problem on one occasion when we tried to leave the annexe where our room was situated, perhaps 100 metres from the main hotel. The front door key for the annexe would not open the door. There was no phone in the room so we had to make a mobile phone call to reception (via Australia) to arrange for the door to be opened. The matter was sorted out within 5-10 minutes , and we were given a replacement key.
The Room - Our room had two prints of awful pieces by Osho which my wife could not bear to look at. The room was up a couple of flights of stairs.
As mentioned, there was no phone in the room. The bathroom was on the small side but adequate.
The hotel was close to the Duomo. Breakfast was OK - continental, supplemented with cold meats.
The hotel was OK, but we would not stay there again.
