Great location, smelly room
The location was perfect and the staff were very nice and welcoming. The only issue we had was that the room was very musty giving it a strange smell. The window is on the ceiling so we could not open it to air it out.

Gregory, us2 night trip
Poor 2.0
Worst service ever
Me and my family was meant to stay at this hotel for 3 nights, unfortunately the card details were wrong but the hotel never contact me to let me know there was an error with the card so instead they cancelled the reservation without letting me know and for our surprise when we got to the hotel the staff told us he has no room for us. Also she was really really rude and raised her voice to us. Worst service ever!

Good 6.0
Not great
The hotel was very minimal and the receptionist was pretty rude. WiFi isnt free, storing luggage cost a fee, rooms were cold because You couldn’t control it from your room. Though the decor was kind of cute, borderline tacky they literally charge you for everything which was what ruined our experience.

Good 6.0
For the price it was fine. Wi-Fi is not free. Need to pay for it. Area was alright. Near a nice piazza, but one day there were people sitting outside gambling the whole day.
ie2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Outdated and just not comfortable. Needs major update. Very expensive then pay for Wifi. Bed is a mattress on frame, no springs; very uncomfortable. Just no value for the money spent.
Debra, us1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Mediocre stay
The stay was okay. Reception staff not very happy. There was no cell signal in my room and of course because the wifi was not free I had to pay for it to have any use of my cell phone in my room. I explained this to the reception and she was not sympathetic in the least. The bed, bedding, linens, etc very outdated. Good location, 10 minute walk to train station and 10 to Duomo and other sights.

It was nice but very poor wifi reception. And breakfast was too basic without much of extra.
