The hotel is in a very good location. The roof top has amazing views. You can have Sunset breakfasts on Thursdays and you can always enjoy your drink during the day. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is nice. The rooms are cleaned everyday. I recommend this hotel.

Came in November, off-peak. Pros: central location, aesthetics Cons: all mattresses at this hotel are “hard”, by manufacturers labeling. The staff can add a mattress topper, but it’s nowhere near enough to counter the hard mattress. This makes for uncomfortable, sleepless nights that leave you exhausted in the morning. If the mattress alone wasn’t enough to keep you awake, the green exit light will. It’s so bright that it keeps the entire room lit all night. Also, if you get a room facing the road, you won’t have any kind of a view, and it’ll be noisy all night with the passing traffic. Room 101 is also badly positioned for internal noise, as you’ll hear plumbing from the other rooms every time even a toilet flushes. Breakfast is cold food only, and watch out for flies staking their claim. Shower areas have mold stains. And there is no conditioner provided, only shampoo and body wash. Air conditioning works well in some rooms like 101, but not at all in others like 406. Overall great central location, beautiful rooms, nice staff, but you won’t get any sleep here. So, I would not recommend Palazzo Ignazio.
