Okay hotel far away from the highway
Posted Apr 25, 2016 on Orbitz
I picked the hotel with high expectation from both the pics and positive review. However it turned out to be the worst hotel we have ever stayed so far during our trip.
To start with, the way to the hotel from Venice as directed by GPS and phone was getting more and more challenging and at several moments I feared we would never be able to make it. The zigzagged road was narrow and steep.
When we finally got to the hotel, I further doubted my pick as I saw only one car in the yard, and it was 8pm. The two buildings didn't look as beautiful as in the pics. Actually they looked pretty creepy especially in the foggy rain. I was made more disappointed when learning that the two rooms I booked were actually located in two separate buildings, and neither had lifts.
As if that was not enough. when we finally got ourselves into the rooms, I found no wifi at all. I was told later on that the dependent building didn't have wifi and the wifi in the other building was down and not fixed.
Small room, small beds, pretty aged facilities, mediocre breakfast...I was trying to justify my own choice but unfortunately I couldn't find any.
I need to give fair credit to the owner/manager. They were very friendly and helpful. And if you understand this was just a family-owned-and-run hotel, it was actually carefully maintained and had its own proud history. If you appreciate those more than the comfort or convenience, it may not be a bad choice.
For me and my family, we won't come back again.

Thank you for the appreciation !! Before booking you should read most of what you are booking. It 'clearly written that the rooms booked were in addiction, if he wanted the main building it was enough to book them in the main building. It was clearly written that the wi-fi is only available in the main building !! The highway, coming from the north is only 25 minutes drive away and the road is very simple to follow. Surely you miss a turn. The rooms are exactly as in photos.
