I thought that this place was dark and dingy. The rooms have dark wood panelling on the walls AND ceiling or have this crazy paving style brickwork. Breakfast was cheap and the opposite of fresh.The hosts are not the friendliest and do not speak English. The town itself is wonderful- great for exploring. About 18km from Mount Enta and also 18km to Toarmina. Just stay elsewhere like hotel Federico. Sometimes its worth paying a bit more.
