The places that I'm recommending are all options that I have stayed at and would happily recommend to friends and family. I've tried to include a range, from basic and budget all the way through to a few 'once in a lifetime' splash-out options, so that you can choose one according to your pocket and priorities. I've included some old-school grand hotels and palazzi, stylish boutique hotels and charming little B&Bs, some slap bang in the centre of the action and others more remote for those who want a quieter vacation.
* Simonseeks has given star ratings out of five for all accommodation
recommendations. With hotels, these will tally with the hotel's official star rating where
it exists. Where a hotel has no official star rating, and in the case of b & bs and hostels,
the experts have made a judgment as to how many stars the accommodation deserves, in terms
of comfort, level of facilities and so forth.
