Great hotel in old jewish ghetto area!
Posted Oct 27, 2016
We really liked this hotel. It is located in the old jewish ghetto, about 5 minute walk from Gam Gam restaurant and 30 seconds from Chabad shul. We found it by chance since it's not mentioned on Chabad website and would recommend it for anyone. The location was a bit hard to find at first- go through alley on right side of gamgam, cross tiny bridge, straight and slight left. It's about 25 minutes walk from S. Lucia train station with heavy luggage. There is a shabbos elevator and regular one, they provide you with regular metal keys and there are no automatic opened doors- which we liked, and a kosher cholov yisroel breakfast is served every day with items like Reismans rugelach, Achva pastries, fruit, other cake and cookies, hard boiled eggs, butter, jams and chocolate spread with good hechsher, waffles sometimes, rolls, bread, several types of cereal, coffee, tea, juice. Reception is only there from around 8 am until 6 pm, but we had no problems. There is a kosher restaurant on site called gimmel garden, but idk about the hechsher- since not familiar with Italian Rabbis. (I believe it was Rabbi Bachbout ? spelling) Room was clean, had everything we needed except tissues and hair conditioner. But none of the italian hotels we stayed out gave hair conditioner. They had urn with tea, coffee and candles outside breakfast room for shabbos/chag. spacious sitting area on the second floor outside room. Nice staff. In room safe (smallish). ask for plug in mosquito repelleler.
