I left my shaver behind, and despite many phone calls to ask if they had it when they promised they would call me back, they did not. Because of broken promises I can only give a low rating. Well situated betwen the bus stop and city centre, hotel is OK. I recommend the Donatello Restaurant nearby.

This hotel advertises both air conditioning and double sound-proof windows. However, in mid-September, we were surprised to learn (as was the desk clerk on duty, who was about to change us to a room where the a/c was not broken) that the management had turned the air conditioning off. We were told it was cooler at night, and we should simply open our windows. After an hour of listening to the reverberations of the sounds of cars and motorcycles on the busy avenue, we had to choose the lesser of two evils and close the windows, trying to sleep in an overheated room. (Otherwise, accommodations were as expected.)

Great value hotel, with an excellent location (only 10 minutes walk from the train station and from the main square. Single rooms are small but the shower is super (not always certain in Italy). Breakfast was pretty decent (by Italian standards). Highly recommended for the budget traveller.

Our hostess was completely professional, and yet very friendly and helpful. Elayna booked our tours, suggested great restaurants, packed food for us when we headed out before the normal breakfast time, and made our stay absolutely delightful.

mary on reception was amazing....so incredibly helpful...giuded my partner step by step into a car park just down the road...organised everything for our short stay...sent us to the finest restaurants...with grace aplomb and a friendly welcoming smile. The hotel was as youd expect for a 3star....clean, atsteful, comfortable...nothing exceptional, but certainly not shoddy, ideal placement for the city. The welcome and assistance was exceptional...thank you once again.
