Pros: The staff is amazing and very caring. From Leonardo who created us as we walked into this charming 12 room hotel to Thomas who took care of us during breakfast, to the concierge who took care of our travel needs. The hotel rooms are charming, spacious, and have good sized bathroom and kitchenette which was great.
Cons: Only two things stopped me from giving this place a 5 star rating:
1. The hotel at night has a oder in the rooms. They try to mask it with the glade / vapor sprays on the floor but it does not do the trick and can smell like a wet clothes.
2. My pet pieve, no iron and on the weekends no other option to iron. It is an Italian law supposedly but I stay at a Westin and Hilton in Italy which both provided me with an iron and ironing board

Cons: The hotel and kayak booking experience was I'm my mind fraudulent. On booking, I noticed they booked the wrong month from my request. Many phone calls to both booking agent and hotel within hours of the booking and no one was willing to do anything to fix the error. But the certainly kept my money. Horrible experience. Won't use kayak again and wouldn't recommend hotel because they were totally unwilling to fix the reservation even though it was still months away.
Pros: Great location, nice rooms, decent breakfast, very reasonable rates. Would definitely stay there again.
Cons: Would be nice to have an electric kettle in the room, so we wouldn`t have to ask the hotel to bring hot water to the room to make tea.

Most horrible hotel we have slayed in Italy. I do not know how it got 4 star rating? It was bad then a road side motel. The room was very small and poorly finished. Paint pealing in the bathroom. Leaky faucets and lot of plumbing noise.

Cons: The rooms are small and in need of a little love (new carpet).
Pros: The location is perfect. 10-15 minute walk to everything, but quiet location. Service like one does not find anymore. Worth the money.
Pros: Cappuccino. Staff was understanding.
Cons: The rooms next to the street are noisy because of the late night bars and at this time of year you can't have AC in the rooms because one system works the entire building. If you are hot or uncomfortable you have to open a window which just lets the noise in. Street cleaners, and trash service comes by at 5am which is nuts! Breakfast was blah...Single room was a closet and horrible shower. Im in shape and didn't fit in the shower.
Pros: Staff and location
Cons: Breakfast buffet and some rooms noisy
