Wonderful romantic hotel in excellent location A review of Hotel Casa Marcello
Stayed here for a long weekend for my boyfriend (now husband)'s birthday in August 2003. We had a suite which was wonderful. The hotel is gorgeous - quiet and romantic. You can have free and exclusive use of the sauna downstairs - just let them know and they will give you the key - nice on an overcast showery day. Breakfast was lovely served out in a little courtyard. Fabulous places to eat and drink locally at really low prices - one of the best meals we have EVER had (and we have travelled a lot) was in a small restaurant nearby - excellent fillet steak with spinach and a bottle of wine for about £3 each!! All in all a wonderfully romantic place to stay, in one of Europe's most romantic cities. Staff were absolutely brilliant too, and helped me book opera tickets in advance of our visit. It IS easy to get lost (see other visitors' comments) but just pick up one of the many leaflets that are handed out in the streets advertising free music events - they usually have a map on the back and you can orientate yourself once you spot the jewish quarter, where the hotel is. Highly recommended.
