We stayed in the bi-level room with a spiral staircase leading up to the bedroom in an open loft. Huge windows could be opened to the breath-taking views in the back. If you want to stay in the room with a balcony that is Room 19. Everything was very clean, plenty of hot water and great water pressure. Breakfast was very relaxing and lovely out on the back picturesque patio. We enjoyed watching the birds bathe in the morning dew which had collected on the large plants. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, especially L. at the front desk. He spent a lot of time telling us about goings on and where to find things. He even gave us a history of the famous horse race.
It is an easy walk into town via one of the medieval gates (Porto Romana). Although you can walk, purchasing a couple bus passes from the front desk can help you get into the city center can be handy. Beware eating right in Piazza del Campo. The food is very over-priced and not that good. Right down the street from the hotel (opposite direction from the city) is Trattoria Fori Porta, an EXCELLENT restaurant with a wonderful owner.More
