Nice and clean. Lovely view from our room. English is a bit of a problem. WiFi only in foyer area but good. Only ate breakfast there which was nice.

Walked across "new bridge " (Puerto Nuovo - built in 1793 after 2 previous attempts collapsed) to the old city , visited Casa del Ramon - mansion owned by some "Grandee" from times past.
