Please note, room photos are misleading on the hotel’s site. The hotel probably was quite grand 15 years ago when the room decor was still considered modern. However, our room looked like it dated back to the late 80’s with its oak trim, dark carpets and eclectic (and not good

Everything about this hotel is first rate. The service, authentic decor, breakfast choices and attentive staff. Like so many hotels in Italy— this was originally a grand home. In this case it was given to a niece of a pope. Added value- a complimentary IPhone loaded with

Is the bedroom a separate room from the living area in the Suites or is it really just an open room?

We are arriving on May 20, 2019. Is valet parking available and, if so, how much is it per night?
We had a driver, so don't know. It didn't seem easy to find since it's in the middle of the crowded city.

Our room was on the top floor over looking roof tops and the valley in the distance, but the room was tired. I'd ask to see the room first and make sure it all works. And if you need air conditioning make sure either it works or you have fans. Hotel is well located for walking purposes and restaurant is better than you can find in the town at reasonable prices. Remember, this is a tourist town!
