The hotel's interior and grounds are gorgeous, especially the inner courtyard when it's lit up at night. The rooms are nice, though nothing exceptional. Each room has a balcony that offers decent views of the surrounding hills. We choose a room that had oxygen pumped in to help with the altitude, but I would recommend not bothering with the extra expense. First, I didn't notice much of a difference, if any difference at al. Second, if you're young and in relatively good shape, the altitude won't be that big an issue anyway. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was and wi-fi were included, and the main square, as well as arguably the two best restaurants, Cicciolina and the Map Cafe, are a block away.
