When we arrived at the property nobody was there to receive us. No appropriate correspondence was received by us prior to arrival with regard to contact policy. The accommodations were high style but rooms in the front on the street can be noisy due to the karaoke bar across the street. Breakfast, however, is very lovely. Don't let the appearance of the building scare you away.

Il B&B è piacevole, ben arredato e le foto corrispondono perfettamente. Il personale è stato gentile, presente e riservato e la posizione è centrale e in una zona tranquilla della città.

Very modern and stylish B&B! The reality was better then the pictures! 3 negative points: there were no towels, poor breakfast and the host was during our whole breakfast very busy and loud talking with another guest (maybe friend?). But would go again some other time.
