Fodor's Review

Situated at the bottom of the Sassi ravine on the Via Fiorentini (which allows limited car access), the Locanda offers a more upmarket form of cave dwelling, with all modern comforts, including an elevator to whisk you up the cliff side to your room. Owners Antonio Panetta and his American wife, Dorothy Zinn, have even created a luxury underground Thermae Romanae, an ancient-Roman-style bath with a series of variously heated pools, a dry-heat room, hydromassage, and steam

room. Guest rooms are on four levels and plainly furnished to conform to the original cavern atmosphere. The view from your terrace is like finding yourself in a movie set.
