The Hotel was OK except that when we returned at night to go to bed, the room smelled as if 10 smokers just left! Not sure if it was a worker who had come into the room or a smoker in a nearby room but it was awful!.
Also, during the evening we got kind of lost walking around and needed a taxi to return to the hotel. We spent over an hour trying to either find a taxi stand and/or to call a cab company. Everyone we called only spoke Italian and our Italian was limited. So, we called the hotel and asked if they would call us a cab to come get us and take us to the hotel. They told us that they only got cabs FROM the hotel and couldn't do that. Finally, we were able to get a cab company who spoke some English and returned to the hotel an hour and a half later!
Also, needing a drink after that ordeal, we went to the hotel bar. My husband asked for a Manhattan, which was in the drink menu. The bartender said she didn't know how to make one. He tried to guide her through it, but the drink was awful! I asked for a glass of white wine but something not too dry. She told me the two they had were very dry. So, I asked her for a White Russian. She said she didn't know how to make it. I looked it up online and translated it to Italian. She said they didn't have any cream. So, at that point, I gave up and did not have anything.
Otherwise, the room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. less
