Chambre très spacieuse et très bien tenue. Les personnes parlent et anglais et français. Bon rapport qualité/prix. Juste à regretter un peu de nuisances sonores.

Room and bathroom in good conditions and nicely renovated. Welcoming was very poor, nobody on site, no help or information concerning the city. When asking for a city map, we were told "you can find anywhere" ...

Good adress, specially for families (one big room with 4 or 5 beds). Not far away from a nice place on the seaside, San Giovanni Porto. Very nice and helpfull guests. Two bad points anyway: a bit noisy, and quite far away from historic center (good city bus service).

Although the staff did not speak English, they were very welcoming and made a lot of effort to communicate with us. The room was lovely, and very spacious and clean. There was no breakfast room however, and the breakfast didnt arrive before we had to check out.

Las fotografías del edificio no se corresponden con la realidad, ya que se trata de un edificio viejo aunque su interior está restaurado y sus habitaciones son amplias y muy limpias
