6/10 Good

Good location and views. Rooms are outdated, A/C didn't work, staff not friendly.

6/10 Good

Fantastic view and nice location. Easy walk to restaurants and port. Hotel is quite dated but clean. Unfortunately, most of the staff was very unfriendly and asking simple questions seemed to be an annoyance to most of them. Such a disappointment since all of our other experiences in Italy were fabulous.

6/10 Good

We had 6 days at the hotel recently and had a pleasant stay. We had a sea view suite because we had read that some rooms were small. The room and whole hotel was incredibly dated and the shower tiny. Breakfast was very basic. I felt that it was over priced.
