Not only is the accommodation authentically Italian and located in a lovely part of the city, but you get wonderful personal service from Clara (the owner) : information on where to eat, where to get the best ice cream, wine, cappuccinos, etc, she knows it all and is happy to share it with you.
Where else can you eat breakfast outside and have evening drinks on a sunny terrace directly from your rooms? What made the experience so special for us was Clara, she has an amazing personality and always wanted to help us, even telephoning reservations for us. It was like having your own concierge service at a 5 star hotel.
We stayed in the same room as the reviewer who gave the only bad review and we would recommend this place to anyone. It was excellently appointed, clean and contained everything and more we needed for our stay, the airconditioning worked perfectly! We can only think she didn't like the character and period feel of this place which is one of the reasons we absolutely loved.
