    Beautiful property. Well maintained. Service at pool and rooftop bar was lacking. Took forever to get drinks and food. View from our room was bad. Couldn’t see much besides a walll and they said they “upgraded” us. Also, at night could hear people walking around above us because we were on the lower level underneath lobby

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Really unique hotel. The decor is fantastic and the view breathtaking- it’s a perfect location on top of a rock where you have amazing views on both sides. The service is extremely attentive, and staff really go out of their way to please customers. The owner, Madama Franca, sits in the lobby every morning and evening looking out for her guests and hotel. I have nothing negative to say other than the walls are thin, and you can easily hear people walking along the corridor, walking above you, or speaking loudly in the room next door. The hotel is 10-15m walk from the city center, but it’s very steep so the way back is a real hike. There’s a hotel shuttle in the mornings and evenings. I really highly recommend the property.

    Loved the attention that they staff gave us. They were very personable. The rooms are very small but that is due to the limit of space that they have by building on cliffs. It is part of the charm to the town.
