    Very Good8.0
    19th century villa with very unique taste
    It is a 19th century villa, and this has some very good, and some bad issues. Good thing is that this is a maybe the best integration of old building with new amenities like jacuzzi bathtub and other modern things, I've seen. This is some kind of family run Inn, and you have something like a family atmosphere during your stay, some kind of retro classic in hotel industry, and this was very new and essentially good experience. Bad thing is that we came and our room Milano was not available, so we were moved in a basement room for a first night, they solved this very professionally, but this really shouldn't happen. Second thing is internet, rooms above the ground have very good internet, but basement rooms have internet from 1990 era, but this is a something that I don't know if there can be solved if you have building from 1883. Too many written warnings posted everywhere, I've never seen nothing like that, they even tells you which towel to use for makeup removal, where to put women products,etc. Unique stay, very friendly staff, but they need to solve this issues that casting shadow on overall impression.
