The setting amongst the trees was good. Breakfasts were excellent and the dining room also very good.
Strong smell in the room - old cigarette smoke or old wood (something like that) that permeated all the furnishings and a very dated decor in the rooms - typcial American/Italian style.
It is an amazingly beautiful hotel w/ great amenities.
"The extras" (I.E. robe for pool, bathing cap) can add up in price
Got an incredibly low internet rate which more than halved the cost of staying. It is a beautiful hotel with fantastic public rooms and one of the nicest restaurants I have ever been in
Just one small issue - tried to make a reservation via phone for dinner but was kept waiting for 3 minutes and then somoene at the other end finally put the phone down! But generally it was incredible for the money we paid.
Location, nice breakfast
There is an internet fee, which is a pain in such an expensive hotel, but I think it is common in Italy, and the hotel also charges for the jacuzzi and sauna, the restaurant is out of style
