This is one of the most luxurious hotels in Italy, and if you've been thinking of doing something special for your mom, wife, and/or hubby (you go, you sugar mama, you), I would most definitely recommend bringing them here to treat them for a night of two.
Hostels are usually found in the most convenient of locations and increasing numbers of travelers -- both young and old -- are recognizing the benefits booking into such affordable accommodation.
