We stayed at Gio with an Italian group that was celebrating a 40+year reunion. Despite the numbers the hotel handled the situation very well...with a meal for 100 on the main night and lunches as bookends. The hotel has two wings...one dedicated to jazz music and the other to wine.
Rooms we clean and well maintained. The decorations were unusual being all Jazz orientation. Wallpaper, fixed radio, curtains, and figurines are all reflective of jazz music and jazz musicians. Quite unusual to say the least...but it grows on you. We also learned that Hotel Gio is the home of the annual jazz festival held in the autumn...which then made sense.
A little out of the main part of the old town...so a strong walk...or taxi is required to visit the piazza etc....
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Not overpriced so good value.
Ps...one more item worth mentioning. Each room had it's own massage chair...having driven from Rome this was a great but very welcome surprise.
