Needs to improve its covid hygiene
It came up short on its post-covid hygiene. Dirty sheets, prehistoric (unwashed) blankets and alien hairs all in evidence. The receptionist was surly and unapologetic when we fed back politely. It needs to up its game.

6/10 Good

European 2.5-3 stars
The AC didn’t really work in my room. During a hotel Italian summer this was a bit of an issue. Otherwise the location and facilities were good. Staff is friendly, if not a little handicapped by the limitations of the hotel.
