Italia. Just a block from bustling Via Nazionale, this hotel feels like a classic pensione: low budget with a lot of heart. The hotel is a family affair and a friendly one. Guest rooms have big windows, desks, parquet floors, and baths with faux-marble tiles, and a generous buffet breakfast. The bedspreads and drapes are carefully color-coordinated in green, red, and white, in a tasteful nod to the Italian flag. Thoughtful touches like an ice machine and free wireless Internet access make a stay here all the more tempting. Midsummer rates can sometimes be bargained down.
