Centrally located former palazzo
Posted Oct 2, 2016
The location is perfect, near all the major sites and very good restaurants. While the street is filled with tourist shops and activity, once inside the hotel, there is a sense of calm and quiet. It is a grand old hotel with extraordinary frescos on the ceilings and great, huge spaces. The hallways are a bit frayed, but clean. Our room was huge, comfortable and had a terrace with lots of light. We will definitely return.
One detraction: We rented a car to tour the island and just before we arrived, we received notification that the street to the hotel was closed due to a festival. A garage was suggested which was several blocks away through the crowds at the festival -- a bellman should have been offered to help with our luggage both to and from the hotel.
