Cleaning of the room, there was no soap)
We were given an apartment instead of the double room booked. The apartment was well equiped with furniture, cooking facilities, fridge, and wifi - there was even a laptop provided. A safe car parking space was available in a street opposite the hotel.
It was difficult to find by car due to the maze of one way streets.
Very helpful staff and charming hotel and beautiful and convenient location.
The location is excellent as well as the hotel staff, in particular Antonio who is a very resourceful and diligent guy. My wife and myself arrived with very low expectations to the hotel since it is was very difficult to find and to park in its proximity (it took us more than 1/2 to figure where the hotel was located despite the fact I was driving with the GPS).So I decided to park in a public place about 3 blocks away and walk asking for directions.Once I found the hotel everything was immediately solved and one of their staff walk back to the car with me to guide us to the parking they have already reserved for me. Once we get in the Hotel we were happily surprised of the improvements done in terms of comfort from such an old building.
The location is superb. The hotel has made the most of a very small and narrow site. The staff were very helpful and friendly except for one young woman which was disappointing. The hotel had a laptop for guest use in our room which was a great service, even if the internet service kept dropping out.
The location, it was within walking distance to all attractions. Breakfast on the roof was a great touch.
Parking was a problem on the island. In addition the island was closed to traffic after 4 PM. We were not told this until we arrived at the hotel.
Everything .It was idyllic.
