Editorial review:

This former palace dates back to the 18th century and is surrounded by tranquil gardens. It has an amazing location and is close to all of the main spots. The service is great, but critics felt that it doesn't measure up to other top hotels and that it's nothing special.

Verified Reviews:

  • Rooms were clean - Nice sized bathroom - Large comfy bed - Restaurant is good
  • Service was excellent - Complete gym - Sauna and hammam - Annnoying wi-fi charges
  • 1.5 km from centre - Excellent food - Great buffet breakfast - Highly recommended
  • Excellent hotel - Room was very nice - Magnificent swimming pool - Helpful staff

            Great location and wonderful front desk staff, a beautiful hotel.

            The gym needs some uplift and so does the room furniture and design - it's tired and it shows.

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Staff were all very nice

            Everything was very expensive...coffee and croissants was 24 euros!!

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Liked nearly everything

            The service around the pool area was a bit slow some days

          • Single
            5.8

            Central location Nice lobby

            Hotel would need a renovation They have prices like a 5 stars, but the hotel actually is more like a 4 stars

          • Couple
            7.8

            The pool is fantastic, especially in the summer months.

            Our double room was two beds pushed together. A little strange considering we had paid extra for a superior/deluxe room.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The decor is elegant but not garish; the staff is excellent; Paolo, the concierge, is the best and a joy to work with; the room we had was exceptional (we were upgraded without asking); the location is a little off the big central area, which we ended up liking a lot - quieter, less congested, etc. this is a first class hotel in every sense and it was at least 25% less expensive than the excelsior or the St. Regis et al.
