8/10 Very good

A mixed experience
This is a small, quiet and comfortable hotel. The staff, if you can find them, are friendly. The location is very good, it’s a lovely neighbourhood with some good restaurants. My concerns are that it isn’t easy to find, and there is no obvious signage. The reception is only part-time, and I was really taken aback that it wasn’t open for a 9am checkout on my last day, which was so inconvenient. I’ve been told that British people have a reputation in the hotel trade for complaining, but I rarely do. However, this hotel needs to sort out signage, branding and customer care! They don’t even have notices telling you when to expect the reception to be open. A real mixed bag of an experience, which is a shame because the rooms are clean and comfortable. Be forewarned.

4/10 Fair

Strange hotel probably once a residence and redeveloped into hotel rooms. The hotel went by three different names: Il Golfo, Hotel Fossa, and the name listed near the door. It seemed like a scam at first but was actually legit. However, the price I paid wasn't worth what I got. I thought $148 was a lot but add another $30 for taxes. Needless to say, but never again.

6/10 Good

Seems to be under new owners? Hotel has three different names and no way to contact any of them. Ignored emails as well. But it is a great location and hopefully these issues will be resolved soon.

4/10 Fair

We did not like the fact that there were no reception staff at the facility between 6pm and 8am. There was not even morning coffee available (2 packets of instant coffee were never replenished during our 3 night stay). There was a bar and breakfast area but no service. The daytime staff who were there were very friendly and helpful but we would not recommend this "hotel"

I stayed 4 days here and everything was spotless clean despite the fact that renovations were taking place. Jasper was friendly and accommodating. The Il Fiore Restaurant has excellent food and friendly service. Our bed was really comfortable and our bathroom was large
