Our favourite hotel on our honeymoon tour of Italy! It really should be a 5 star in every sense from the wonderful, friendly staff to the lovely hotel scent, gorgeous and large rooms, amazing rooftop views, central location, and special mention to our barman/mixologist Karim who made some of the best cocktails we’ve ever had!
