“Very Clean Rustic Cute Wooden Rooms”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

We found the hotel very charming despite the very bad reviews about the "crispy towels" and the tight parking. TOWELS ARE "CRISPY" IN EUROPE, AMERICAN TRAVELERS. THAT IS JUST HOW MOST EUROPEAN TOWELS ARE! ALSO, IT WAS VERY NICE THAT YOU HAD FREE PARKING ON SUCH A SMALL LOT! The rooms are charming. Yes, it is very smoky in the bar area but there is no smoking in the breakfast area. We thought this place was lovely and the staff is very friendly. Staff speaks Swiss German, German, Portuguese and Italian. If you can get by in any of these languages at all you should be fine. NOT ALL FOREIGN COUNTRIES SPEAK ENGLISH...and that is the fun of traveling to foreign countries!! ;)

Check in is with the bartender in a restaurant that is so smoke-filled I could barely breathe. When we walked in to the restaurant, the locals all stopped what they were doing to look up at us. We smiled but nobody smiled back. I felt like I was in a horror movie! The bartender asked her friend to go home for the night so that we could have a parking spot.
Eventually we were brought up to our room by a lovely girl who spoke only Italian. The room was wood-paneled and rustically nice. The bathroom was clean, but the towels were crispy. Brittle. Exfoliating. My husband even decided not to shower because he couldn't bear the feel of the towels. The only soap was liquid soap/shampoo in a packet. At least we had a bathroom to ourselves - I think some of the rooms don't have toilets in them.
The beds were awful - very uncomfortable and saggy and kept me up for most of the night. My back is still hurting today (three days later). Be sure to bring earplugs to block out the sound of the bells just outisde the hotel (it chimes every 15 minutes). There are no non-smoking rooms and the smell of smoke from other rooms seeped into ours. It was awful.
Breakfast was good, but they left the ceral sitting out all night in an open bowl, so I just had bread and a croissant. The juice is good though the coffee was bitter.
Once we found someone who worked there, check-out was easy enough because we have enough Italian to get by.
We stayed here because it was the least expensive place we could find in the area (145 Euros per night in July) but in hindsight, we would have rathered pay more money, or have stayed further away from major towns/cities. It was a miserable night and just wasn't worth it. I do not recommend staying here.
