beautiful hotel however smoke in room from outside
Posted Oct 27, 2016
We really liked this hotel- everything was great including the staff, the facility, the free breakfast, the in room amenities (loved the soap, shampoo scent. they included sewing kit, shower cap, shoe shine, and qtips/file/cottonballs kit) however, people smoked in the courtyard and outside the rooms and the smoke from the smokers entered our room and it was horrible to breathe. The hotel rooms have exterior corridors; however, it is accessed only by passing through the lobby, then into the bar area, and then courtyard and then either your room is right near courtyard or you ascend steps to the second or third floor for your room, so it felt safe even though exterior entrance. The keys were regular metallic keys and there were no automatic doors that opened, which we liked. Staff was very accommodating, including providing fruit for us the morning we left, because it was so early. One thing I would have liked was a hot water kettle/ urn/ or coffee pot in the room. If you wanted coffee or tea you had to pay for it if it wasn't breakfast time. There was a small fridge/minibar stocked with peanuts, soft drinks, and other drinks. In room safe was larger than other ones we had in other hotels. The shower was a little difficult to get into because tub was tall. A shower "door" which only covered half the length of the tub let plenty of water fall in the bathroom, around the toilet. The flush sometimes had to be pressed multiple times to work- like other Italian toilets.
