I was a single woman traveler looking for a well located hotel where I would feel safe and comfortable. I looked at Casa Leto on Trip Advisor and because it got good reviews and only had 5 rooms I decided to give it a try. When I rang the bell to get into the building (Casa Leto is on the 2nd floor) I was a bit taken back, but I remembered what my Russian hosts in Moscow told me about building entryways. The entryways are maintained, or not maintained by the state. They are often disastrous and in poor condition,but the apartments inside may be fabulous. So up I went to the second floor....navigating a once grand, but now sad staircase. I rang the bell for Casa Leto and was warmly greeted by Yury, the manager. Although I arrived early, he had my room (Rastelli) ready, brought me tea and biscuits, and made sure I had a guide for the day. My room was very clean, had plenty of storage, a brand new up to date bathroom, comfortable bed, windows that opened, good amenities; bathrobe, slippers, bath products. It had high ceilings, beautiful moulding etc, but the furniture, although charming, could use a little freshening up. This would be my only suggestion. The breakfast, provided in a comfortable center room, was limited, but staff will cook you eggs/w ham and cheese if you like. Wi fi worked great and there is a laptop you can use. I would definitely go back to Casa Leto. Location is great. Service wonderful....good restaurant recommendation and always hot tea on my every return. Small snacks put out at night & candles lit. Nice touches!
