driving out of Abruzzo and into the Lake Bolsana region, we though we would spend the night at Viterbo. This hotel came up on my phone as well located and agreeable, and we were able to book it at the Tourist Office and get directions to it. It has a parking lot but it was full when we arrived late afternoon. Found a spot on the street but had to buy parking stckers to cover the time until 8 PM, then had to get up again early the next morning to buy new ones. Did not find Viterbo very pleasant, at least not in the walled area. Very crowded, noisy, lots of car fumes and trash. After a week in Lazio we realized there were much nicer towns to stay.
Room was very basic, cheap local motel level you'd find off a motorway. Breakfast the minimalist we had in 3 weeks. Very little English spoken in hotel and most guests seemed like locals there for some event (group were getting their hair done in the first floor room for a wedding). We also had no hot water despite showering at normal morning hours. There was a lot of voices waking us in the night, not just from the street but seeming to reverberate thru the walls from somewhere not that close.
A depressing night in a depressing place.
