Albergo San Carlo

One of the best in town for one of the cheapest prices

Tiny Albergo San Carlo isn't fancy, with knocked-about-but-nice antiques mixed with the functional furnishings, little Persian rugs by the beds, and quirky touches like the crystal chandelier in room 12, or the marble-topped dresser and carved headboard of room 7—not to mention and free WiFi. But the price—€60 for a room without private bathroom, €78 for one with—can't be beat, and the location is phenomenal: It occupies the fourth floor of the 17th-century Palazzo Isnardi di Caraglio, flanking the east side of elegant Piazza San Carlo. Ask to see several rooms, as they differ dramatically in space and atmosphere. The five rooms on the piazza side have sloping mansard ceilings with dormer windows, and tend to be larger (if a tad noisier) than rooms nos. 1 to 7 in the back.

The price ranges

The price categories for hotels on this site are as follows:

Under €100
€€ €100–€200
€€€ Over €200

This reflects the lowest cost for a standard double room in low season.

Yes, that does leave a whole lot of wiggle room. Rates will be rather higher for, say, a "superior deluxe" room with a spectacular view at the height of high season. Still, we have to be able to compare somewhere—and using this metric does at least give you a relative sense of how the hotels compare to one another on price.

Since price ranges (€€–€€€) only muddy the issue, I will usually stick to a single designation for each hotel. The only time you will see a range is if a property offers more than one distinct category of lodging—not different types of rooms (many do that), but say a property that offiers, say, both private hotel rooms as well as hostel-like beds in a shared dormitory.
