My husband and I stayed at the Oreintale in March of 2010. We were greeted like family, given snacks upon arrival and pressured to take borrowed umbrellas with us when we went walking (we're from Oregon where no one bothers to carry an umbrella). The owners were VERY friendly and helpful despite the language barrier (we speak little Italian, they spoke little English).
Not necessarily hard to find, but if the exterior doors to the courtyard are closed it does blend in with the adjacent buildings; keep an eye out for street number. Breakfast was lackluster, but sufficient. Room was spotless, if a bit threadbare. The building itself is absolutely amazing; the fact that it has not been perfectly maintained adds to it's character. The charm of the hoteliers, their building, the central location and the price made it the perfect location for us.
