We spent a week at Borgo Verde and were completely satisfied with our stay. The hotel is clean and well maintained with comfortable and well-appointed rooms, in keeping with a 3* standard. The bed was in my opinion extremely comfortable and the shower was powerful. The tv channels were all in Italian and some weren't working but this was not an issue for us. My bedside light bulb went on the second night. I reported it the next day and it was fixed immediately, which was appreciated.
The staff were all extremely friendly, helpful and spoke great English. Moira was especially good and really made an effort to help us wherever possible.
The bus stop is just outside the hotel. The bus journey into town is about 20mins, however the bus doesn't really come at regular intervals so you could be waiting at the bus stop a long time. We decided to walk into town one day and this took about 45mins. I wouldn't advise this as there are many parts where there are no pavements, with cars speeding along narrow roads. My advice would be to walk from the hotel to the bus stop after the hotel (towards town) as this betters your chances of catching the bus as there are two that stop there as opposed to just one at the other bus stop.
All in all a pleasant and relaxing stay. I would recommend this hotel as a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, as long as you are happy to do the short commute between the hotel and the city centre.
