The hotel manager and owner, Dr Fabio Borio gave us an overview of the hotel history. This is actually his family's hotel and his home.
Because back in the mid 1960s, the hotel was working mainly as a restaurant, Fabio's father decided to renovate the building and giving the hotel its current shape with its 88 rooms - from its original 20 - 3 meeting rooms that can host up to 60 people, a spa, a gym, the partnership with the Best Western group and the promotion to plus hotel.

The current second floor was originally the piano nobile or the main floor of the original building back in the 1800; today, after the many renovation works, many treasures have been discovered and preserved like the original stained glass windows, frescoed ceilings of some rooms and beautiful coffered ceilings in others.
There is a hot tub, a Turkish bath, a Finnish sauna, the music room and the salt room; this hotel even has a beauty center (also open to the public) and a gym!
