The room, though spotless and very well equipped (including a chandelier) was at the back of the building and smaller than average (but it was a reasonable price). However, when we stepped outside into the corridor we were in a Renaissance palace as it was lined with works of art collected by the Borremeo family over the centuries of their... More

Absolutely all aspects of this hotel are about luxury, hospitality at highest level, beauty, esthetics, and pure pleasure. There is no sense of arrogance – just friendliness, respect and care.

Its the pillows. Sometimes you get the hard as rock ones, and this hotel puts 4 different ones on your bed! The rooms are a bit small as are the bathrooms, but its wonderful. Love the flowers and the indoor pool.
