Our favourite rooms
Go for an Urso Terrace Suite: they’re penthouse-style spaces with separate lounges and bedrooms, and huge private terraces (complete with loungers for chilling out in the sun and a dining space… breakfast on the roof, perhaps?)
Take a dip in the small, heated pool in the spa.
Hit the steam room at the Urso Spa by Natura Bissé for instant relaxation after a long day of exploring (or a long night of gin sipping). Or, take to one of the the three treatment rooms for a massage. If even that sounds too much like hard work, book an in-room appointment and let the spa come to you. Please note, the minimum age for spa entry is 14.
Sunglasses pull double duty here: the clientele’s as cool as the sun is bright, all year round.
All common areas and some guest rooms are wheelchair accessible.
Children are welcome at this city haven; cots can be provided and meals can be adapted, but there’s no baby-kit or entertainment for littles on site.
