I stayed here in August 2011 when I was attending a conference nearby and there was no availability in other hotels. I was reluctant because of the price, but at least expected something decent for what I paid...but no such luck. I travel frequently for business and have stayed in hotels that cost a quarter of the prices at the Emilia but are many times better. As another reviewer has stated, the stained cream carpet is just horrible and my room was tiny, barely room to put my suitcase down on the floor. Also, it was a boiling hot week and the rooms were hot and so I left the air-con on low when I left for a couple of hours but always found it swtiched off with the window open (so full of hot air and mosquitoes) when I returned...nice! The hotel is in a beautiful location, and the family-run element could be attractive but unfortunately just let the hotel down further - staff unfriendly and at times rude and that's not just being curt in English as they were like that in Italian too which is such a shame. The worst thing of all, however, was the bathroom... Firstly, tiny. Now I'm tall but not large but anyone larger than average would have had severe problems with this bathroom - you had to turn sideways to get past the sink into the shower and couldn't lean down over the sink as the wall behind was so close. The shower was powerful (great!) which is all very well if you have a clear plug hole but after less than a minute in the shower I had to stop it and wait for the water to clear as I risked flooding the bathroom due to slow drainage, it took a long time to wash my hair....! I complained when I left the hotel, and it was basically a case of a shrug of the shoulders and no apologies whatsoever so I handed over my card and paid the ridicuolous price, this time. I'm sorry but I really couldn't recommend the hotel to anyone and suggest you look for one of the other hotels nearby, otherwise you risk being seriously disappointed.
