If you come to this hotel, there are some things you can bring along to make your stay more pleasant:
1. Several lamps. Those in the room do not give enough light to read by. The bed-lamp (a goose-neck lamp affixed to the wall) which might have been directed at a book, say, had lost whatever vigor it may once have had, and lay limp against the wall, shining a bit on the floor. Perhaps some Viag... Oh, never mind.
2. Batteries for the lamps. Of the several electrical sockets in the room only one worked. If you are woman, or grow a beard, you will not need that socket for your shaver.
3. A lock for the door. The friends we went with found that their door did not lock. The maintenance man told them no one else knew the door was unlocked , and that the secret was safe with him.
4. A lunge chair. There was one straight-back chair in the room. Otherwise nothing to sit on comfortably.
4. A spare flush toilet. The one in our room worked most of the time, but not always.
5. Soup. Though the food generally was good, the soup was obviously nothing but boiled water with much too much soup powder.
6. Scouring powder. We found our room perfectly clean. However other friends we went with had to scrub their bathtub before they could shower.
No need to bring linens and towels. When we came there indeed were not enough towels in the bathroom, but we requested more towels at the desk, and they arrived instantly.
No need to bring your own Italian restaursnt. Around the corner is a great, and not expensive Italian-style dairy restaurant, Il Pentolino.
