"I have stayed at this charming hotel several times while on business in Florence/Siena. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable with all conveniences. There is a nice breakfast and the location is great for seeing the sights of Florence, on the same street as the Medici Chapel. During my last stay (11/97) a single was ITL240,000 per night (breakfast and tax included)." -ed. note: Per their web site, rates as of Feb. 2004 are from 132 to 418 Euro for a double.
Very pleasant medium-sized hotel in Amalfi on the edge of town, overlooking the water. The rooms were lovely, and even in the economy rooms we had a balcony with a sea view. Breakfast on the terrace was excellent - we could smell them baking the fresh pastries from our room every morning. Friendly, helpful staff. Elevator.

A bit run down and not in the most picturesque area of Ravenna, with somewhat dingy rooms. However, they were clean and air-conditioned, the beds were comfortable, and the staff were some of the most pleasant people we've come across.
