I stayed there overnight on a motorbike trip in one of their standard rooms on the "Festa della Repubblica" bank holiday. The building, located at the eastern end of the town, is purpose-built as a hotel and therefore features amenities like a parking bay at the main entrance, allowing the unloading of my baggage prior to parking the motorbike in the spacious parking area.
My room on the first floor was of sufficient size with a good bathroom. The large bed had one of these "foam"-type mattresses. This was something I had to get used to initially, but after a while it felt exceedingly comfortable if compared to an ordinary spring mattress.
The restaurant "Giorgione's" was excellent, the fine food served by very attentive staff. Where however the hotel is fundamentally flawed, as already mentioned by other reviewers, is the quality of the interior wall insulation. The neighbour in the next room using the toilet or wash basin was so clearly audible in my room, I suppose if that neighbour had used the toilet in my room the noise annoyance couldn't have been any greater. For a purpose-designed building this is a grave shortcoming. Assuming that the staff is aware of this shortcoming, one would have expected them to leave an empty room in between two occupied ones to reduce the disturbance, but no such luck in spite of the hotel being near empty on that day.
Another slight annoyance was the absence of lubrication on the room door latches. The seized-stiff mechanism either required the door key to close the door quietly or slam the door shut with considerable effort. As most guests tend to opt for the second method, this of course adds to the noise disturbance.
However, aside from the noise problem the hotel featured all the mod-cons a weary traveller needs at the end of the day.
