Nice and personal
Posted Dec 29, 2015
Our room was spacious, there was a separate anteroom to the bathroom, and the bathroom was located inside the suite. It was clean. The shower was not unusual for Europe, being like a phone booth, but it was workable and there was plenty of hot water. The climate control was excellent. The owner herself was super friendly and personable, and she took charge of the good continental breakfast. She was knowledgeable about the town and area, and helped us to plan our time and transportation. We felt independent, and we could come and go as we wished with our own keys. The house was quiet and peaceful and located on a very safe and quiet side street just up from a significant plaza. This was inside the medieval city gates and within walking distance of historic sites, many excellent restaurants, and upper class shopping. It is not an overly-commercialized tourist site, but it does have plenty to see. There is a public bus to the park of the monsters in Bomarzo and the ride is about thirty minutes. There is train service between Viterbo and Rome about hourly for five euros, and that train station is a fifteen-minute walk from the hotel. There is a second station nearer the modern shopping mall, and that goes to Florence and other points.
