My Hotels in Italy: Thoughts?

Jump to last reply

With the help of friends and a number of people on this forum, I have booked all the hotels for our (my wife and I) three-week trip to Italy. Here are the places I selected, and I would love to have feedback.

This took a lot of research, so I'm not looking for alternatives, but instead looking for guidance about the areas in which we will be staying and any comments from people who have stayed in any of these establishments.

Milan, September 21-23, Hotel Romana Residence (http://www.romanaresidence.it/)

Venice, September 23-26, Ca Santo Spirito (http://www.casantospirito.it/)

Florence, September 26-29, Al Duomo (http://www.alduomofirenze.it/)

Tuscany, September 29-October 2, Il Canto del Sole (http://www.ilcantodelsole.com/inglese/index.asp)

Sorrento, October 2-6, Maison Tofani (http://www.maisontofani.com/en/)

Rome, October 6-11, Apartment via SleepInItaly.com (https://www.sleepinitaly.com/en/show-ciambella_oriental-navona-pantheon-roma/appartam.php?id_appartam=523)

Thanks for any feedback.

    Il Canto del Sole looks very lovely. It's in one of my favorite areas of Tuscany for views. I hope you take the family up on its invitations to dinner every night.

    For me, in Firenze, I could never stay that close to the front of the Duomo. It would be like booking Times Square or Christopher Street in Greenwich Village for every parade. It is a very busy location, and Florence in small, so there is no need to be sitting right on top of the Duomo. Up to you.

    You are also going to be right in one of thickest areas of tourism in Rome in that apartment, and while it will be less of a purely tourist mob scene, you will have plenty of fellow travelers plus young Romans swirling about and criss-crossing 'til late in the night bar-hopping and strolling. You will need to walk extra steps to get to restaurants that are not touristy (although the nearby Armando al Pantheon is one of Rome's mid-priced best -- and were it me, I would simply book there every night.) But if you haven't already inquired as to whether there is double glazing on the windows, I would. Certainly read reviews to find out if anybody talks about late night bar or restaurant noise.
