Just passing through town and needed an overnight stay. Very friendly family run hotel. Very clean. Great recommendations for dinner places and a quick walk to the old tower. Seems everybody in town knows each other. Great value for the price. We speak limited Italian however with their limited English we communicated just fine.

It is need of a refurb in all areas and the staff really didn't seem that bothered either! However, the stay was comfortable enough and the...
