I can see that the switching off of air-conditioning in the hot summer months would be a serious problem, but we went in late September and so it was not an issue.
That said, it is a pleasant little family run hotel.
It very much caters to Italian visitors and for a week we were the only non-Italians in the place. We rather liked the feeling of being in the non-tourists' Italy. Our fellow guests seemed very pleasant. For that week, the menu was not translated and we and the waitresses had quite a lot of fun as we decided what to choose.
It helped that although our Italian is not brilliant, we have enough knowledge of the language to get by.
Some items in the menu would not appeal to a very conservative British or American palate having such items as horse, octopus, cured but uncooked meat etc., but there were plenty of other good items to choose from.
Breakfast was continental but plentiful with a wide choice.
I suppose that some of our plus points would be minus points for some people, but I would certainly not agree with some of the very unkind comments I have read here.
