"LOCANDA CA DEI DUXI,..." Italy Hotel Tip by JessicaS

Italy Hotels: 374 reviews and 397 photos


220.000L/night (room for three people - could have been four - queen-sized bed & bunk bed in room)

Unique Qualities: This hotel room was quite modern, given the building it was in - completely new bathroom and an AC unit that pumped out non-stop ice cold air (with a remote control, even!). It's situated at the top of the pedestrian-only portion of the Via Columbo (the main drag through town), so if you're walking up from the harbor or the underground tunnel that comes from the train station, be prepared for a hike uphill - with luggage. Your better alternative is to disembark from the train, find the elevator in the side of the cliff, and wind your way DOWN to the hotel rather than climbing UP to it. Our window overlooked a church square, and we woke to church bells each morning. Lovely. Samuele speaks English, and communicates fine via email - everyone else who answers the phone or works the desk speaks very little English, so be prepared to either speak Italian or use sign language! They're all very nice.

Address: Via Colombo, 36
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
