I chose the EKK hotel because I had previously eaten dinner in the first incarnation of the restaurant two or three years ago. It was one of the best meals of my life -- but, alas the chef is gone and the replacement is just so-so.
The hotel itself does its best under the circumstances -- a remote (but very quiet and agreeable location, although not scenic), a converted facility that is now a hotel, and its insane decor in the bedroom. I can't imagine what the decorator was thinking when he/she put up a wall of fiery red wallpaper with huge, modernesque flowers -- roses?? It reminded me of the stage play from some years ago -- "The Little Shop of Horrors."
Except for this enormous mistake that prioritized what some would consider chic contemporary Italian design rather than a peaceful, restful decor, the hotel was pleasant enough. The staff could not have been more helpful. The included breakfast was abundant, especially for Italy. Be sure to have some Pecorino cheese and bread!
Parking abundant and free. No charge for (slow) Internet, but at least it worked.
All in all, the EKK seems like a hotel that had a grand vision for itself which has simply not materialized. You won't go wrong here plus you will have "fun" driving or taking cabs to somewhere where things are happening.
