This is a lovely hotel, however there are pitfalls. We have just arrived back and as we went "out of season" the air con had not been turned on. Its on the main street in a square and is very noisy with bars and Italians who find it amusing to shout all night and ride scooters around to see how much noise they can make. So rooms were hot as we needed to keep the windows closed to get any sleep and ended up baking hot all night.
Frustrated with the fact the rooftop bar had not room charing facilities, cash only. Same with the Cafe Bar downstairs too - this only opened at 3.30pm too which was a shame as it was nice.
Food was ok, you have to order the previous day from a menu.
The thing that makes this place stand out is its people. Andreas, head waiter very attentive and personable. Stefano the wine waiter very good, Michel (Bless him - tried hard but could cope) nice guy though. Young Man from Derbyshire - didn't catch his name - very good. Steffi upstairs in the rooftop bar was very good. Andrea in the Cafe Bar made a mean cocktail and was very nice too. All the girls on reception could not do enough for you.
The thing that was most nice is that the Manager and his Gordie Ladyfriend ate with the guests every night which I have not seen before. I asked what he was like as a boss, the only answer I received was he was wonderful. This was genuine too!!! Well done to him as thats hard to achieve.
My summary would be, great hotel, rooms are basic, its noisy with the windows open and hot with them shut, but go as the staff will always show you the warmest of welcomes!!
