A small hotel that can use a renovation
Posted Aug 27, 2014
To be fair, we did not have a bad experience. I would even say we enjoyed the stay. It's a fairly small hotel in a narrow alley off a huge public square. When you enter the hotel, a nicely arranged courtyard greets you. The owner, Daniele is a soft spoken young man, friendly, and helpful, fairly casual and lay back. Breakfast is abundant. Daniele personally makes the breakfast including salad and sandwiches, almost like a lunch. Eating breakfast in the courtyard was quite pleasant. The only downside of this hotel is the room. Our room was small. The furniture was old and in poor conditions. The room was not clean either. Many corners had dust bunnies and spider webs. The shower door in the bathroom did not close tightly. When I tried to adjust it, I felt like it could fall anytime. There were no hanging hooks anywhere in the bathroom or in the room, making it really hard to find places to hang bath/wash towels and clothes. Wi-Fi signal was very weak. I needed to sit in the hallway to use my iphone. If Daniele could clean up the rooms, replace the old/broken furniture, and add a bit more amenities in the rooms, it would be a great boutique hotel. It's a nice little hotel that just needs a total renovation. After all Daniele appeared to be a nice guy and trying hard to run his hotel, so I want to end my review on an encouraging note.
