I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It was a beautiful staying. The hotel is very clean, the location is very central. If you book direct you get free parking and breakfast. The staff were all very nice. I loved the 2 roof top where you can enjoy a Jacuzzi and glass of prosecco. Beautiful to sit and enjoy the sunset. Definetly I will be back. Giovanni

Charming small hotel in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk away from the old part of the city. The room was spacious, clean and well-appointed. Terrific staff! Helpful, cheerful and made our stay very pleasant. Great euro breakfast! Love the guest terraces. The top terrace has a fabulous view of the city. We would definitely stay here again.

Modern hotel a short distance from the bustling historical centre. Large roof terrace. Our room was comfortable and well furnished, but the shower cubicle was tiny - perhaps the smallest I've ever seen. Thankfully the shower itself was powerful, but large or tall guests may struggle slightly. Staff were very helpful.

I wanted to take the time to say how wonderful the front reception staff, Isabella, was during our bike trip at the end of May. I was ill when I arrived and Isabella was most kind, efficient and patient. She was so helpful in assuring I was comfortable at checkin. Isabella made all the difference in assuring a lovely stay.

This hotel is positioned up the hill a short walk from the Old Historic centre and town beaches. The photos on the website are ( as usual!) on the complimentary side of reality. The hotel is clean and has some nice touches. Ie the rooftop is lovely but is either too hot or too windy to use during the day. You have to book and pay to use the hot tub. A cold plunge pool or showers would be more practical in southern Italy. Rooms are compact but clean. The shower is VERY compact and the wall mounted hairdryer is not great. Toiletries are ok. Just shampoo and shower gel. Not four star level. Mini bar in room and our room had no terrace so nowhere to hang a damp costume. The gym is situated in the basement and is tiny. Only 3 cardio machines. One ball and one mat. No free weights. So we only had one lack lustre workout during our stay. Breakfast was ok but you have to be pretty prompt as savoury options are gone pretty quickly. Overall this hotel does not live up to its promise but for the price we were charged was ok value for Italy in the summer. Just ok!
