Acceptable, but not great
Posted Oct 15, 2013 on Hotels
The hotel pictures led me to believe that I would find a newer (and taller) building (but it is only six stories high). The hotel is a bit dated. The service was fine, but one of the men at the front desk, in his desire to be formal, ended up being a bit stuffy and unkind (e.g., when asked about restaurants in the area he simply replied, "When it is time for dinner, I will be happy to tell you." Ok, then. I'll have to ask at a better time, I thought!). The bed in the hotel was very uncomfortable for me, though my wife loved it. What is not to be missed is the ice cream shop across the street. That was truly extraordinary! (Take it from someone who spent ten years in Rome). If you choose to stay at the hotel, be sure not to stay on the fifth floor. The view is great from there, but at 6 am the staff prepares breakfast in the dinning room upstairs and the tapping of their shoes is likely to wake you up.
