Nice hotel about 10-15 mins walk in to the main square. Room small but nice. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Drinks on the terrace bar are a must with the lovely views. Breakfast not great tough if you arrive down after 9.30am as a lot was gone so we went elsewhere for breakfast on our 2nd morning.

Great accommodation with large rooms and ensuites, comfortable beds and pillows, fantastic breakfast buffet and within a quick easy walk to everything. Travelling from Australia we were excited that our nephew and family came to join us from London. They too loved the hotel and having young children with them they too were catered for brilliantly. Definitely recommend 'The Hotel...

When we got to the hotel, the reception was very nice. After checking in, we made our way to the room, which was located right beneath the staircase. We couldn't take a nap due to the amount of noise coming from the suitcases being rolled and high heels going up and down the stairs. When I went back to the...

Dear Arian, we are very sorry you did not enjoy your vacation and you felt almost teased. As you can read from other reviews, our staff is always considered friendly and helpful, often going beyond its mere job. The room you booked was in fact an Economy room, with no view, and located on the ground floor as stated in...

Dear Robert, we are very sorry if the weather is so freakish! In fact, right now, is very cold even at noon! Unfortunately April is a very strange month in Italy, one week could be very hot and the other cold! It is not possible to switch air conditioning on and the next day turn on the heather!

We were supposed to stay there for 3 nights. We were lucky since we had 2 separate booking, so we cancel 1 night and moved to another villa. The hotel decoration & amenities are very old..like in the 80th. I would rate the hotel for 3 stars only. Breakfast was OK, nothing more... The location was great and that was...

We were very happy with the choice we made when booking this hotel. Service was good, the rooms very clean and located in a quiet part of town (still a short walk from the center). Breakfast was nothing spectacular, but good enough. Would recommend this to anyone who travels there.

Beautifully situated hotel, within short walk of all amenities but very quiet location. Comfortable, well equipped rooms, ours with lovely view worth paying the higher rate for, and our son in smaller room but just across the corridor. Exceptionally helpful staff at Reception. Free parking. A birthday trip worth remembering.
