Found the room after ringing Michael to be guided to it through the old town - following his moped. Lovely location opposite the rock church and near the main square. Complimentary water in the room and coffee maker - always a bonus. Very useful fly screen to cover the open window. Classic cars parked in the square when we were...

We were in Idris room, with a view of the rock church. A lovely room, atmospheric and stylish. And not expensive. The owners were very helpful and friendly. No breakfast laid on, but a coffee maker in the room, and a small fridge which they kept stocked with bottled water while we were there. Owners also kept our bags for...

This room lived up to everything it said it would and more. When we first went into our room we were given 4 large water bottles in our fridge for free along with coffee capsules for the coffee machine. The pillows were memory foam and the mattress and sheets were clean, as was the bathroom. We were given around 3-4...

I'm still here but inspired to write my review. 4 nights of perfection (despite outside distractions such as closed streets for the filming of MasterChef Italy). Michael is a wonderful host (I met Angela only briefly). The location is excellent and the town remarkable. But this room--it wears its simplicity with such elegant grace. Good size, quite spare in its...

Michael and Angela were charming and helpful hosts at this wonderful hotel. We loved our room with its rustic furniture, arched ceiling, comfortable bed and massive armoire. And, we appreciated the modern amenities - a splendid bathroom, beautiful terra cotta flooring, a coffee machine, a small fridge, complimentary water and reliable wifi. The location was perfect - right between the...

The location of the accommodation was fantastic with access to great restaurants and sights within the Sassi.

This place is a fantastic value. Our room had a great view of the church in the rock - a queen size bed and two twins - so it would work for a couple or a family - a very large & clean bathroom - wireless that worked (!) and a mini fridge with free water. You get the Sassi...

We spent 2 nights with our family and had a great room with 4 beds and big bathroom. Good air condition and friendly service. Everything was just perfect. We had a breakfast in a bar just opposite to the hotel. The city is amazing, so much to see and explore!

“Chose rooms 4 & 5 if you want two rooms together. Great if you are two couples or two friends who want a room each. You have one outside door leading to a little lobby with both room doors off this. Very private from the other rooms.Rooms 4 and 2 are large but have big wardrobes next to the bed which is shame because they dont allow you to see the best of the wonderful features. Room 2 has steps leading down into the room and two windows making nice and light. Add a few flowers to the room to give it some colour. I made vases from the water bottles and picked jasmine growing in abundance over walls. Be ready for the early morning corus from the sparrows!!!”
