    Pure elegance, beautiful building, blend of old and new. Staff service & friendliness (not always a staple of Italian hotels) more than up to international standard. They upgraded us to a superior suite with the largest terrace in the hotel and a marvelous view at no extra charge. Breakfast buffet left no questions unanswered.

    Gym & spa facilities not outstanding, shower a bit small, but neither a big issue.

    The facilities for business use were quite poor with limited access to internet & business facilities. in the end I had to go into the town to use the internet facilities

    The hotel has an excellent location and is a quiet oasis in a busy town. The building itself is stunningly beautiful and the rooms and furnishings are what you would expect from a five star hotel. The cloistered courtyards are very relaxing and the staff were friendly and attentive without being a nuisance.

    The areas around the pool are a little limited so getting loungers for a family cannot be guaranteed. The prices for food and drink especially by the pool felt high and the choices were limited. It felt as though the pricing was deliberately predatory e.g. €29 for a club sandwich or €38 for a buffet by the pool, so for a family of four that is a c €180 light lunch. The ambience there did not justify that and there should be a lighter option. That said, the service is excellent and the location stunning. It is not so much about the money as simply the lack of a genuine light option. The hotel should also provide free wi-fi given the basic cost of accomodation.

    Very good

    The interesting origin as a convent and the location, as well as the cloister coutyard and landscaping

    The recent builiding additions are not in keeping with the origin, Both the architecture and some of the interiors are fairly poor - could also be more modern and more in keeping, as long as the quality is better than today. E.G. the interior treatment, incl. Dado panellig in the bar and restaurant is not in keeping with the furniture, and the lighting is poor. What the hotel needs is a well qualified architect to carry out a study with clear recommendations so that the hotel really appears as "one of the leading hotels in the world". The maintenenace of bedroom windows, doors and fiurniture is also poor.

    -Amazing place:building, garden and rooms. We were upgraded to a Junior suite with terrace.

    - Wifi and internet (even in the public PCs by the restaurant) are not free which is not acceptable after paying more than eur300 per night. Breakfast can be improved.
