ROOM: small but comfortable. The TV is quite small and there is a quite annoying deficiency of sockets in the wall. The desk is OK but quite dark. The bad is comfortable, the pillows are not. The wallpaper is ugly, old, dirty and should be changed. The batchroom has a good size, shower is OK, but not really clean, with...

Stayed here 2 nights but hope never to need to stay here again. This is a tired, run down place - the carpets are frayed, the wallpaper is damaged in many places and it takes 15 minutes to get any warm water in the shower. Oh, and the wifi is terrible in the room, Its only saving feature is that...

Small but just fine for one night. Smallish room but clean etc etc. Decent price. Friendly staff. Would stay again for 1 or 2 night stay. Well located. Free breakfast was simple but good. No negatives.

This hotel is located just opposite the railway station and it is convenient when early in the morning you have to continue your trip to Certosa di Pavia or somewhere else. It is not that chic and new, however all necessary amenities for a three star hotel are available, even a pair of hotel slippers: a pleasant trifle. Unfortunately the...

Our son was studying at Pavia Uni for the year and went to visit. Pavia is a small but beautiful town. The hotel was bery comfortable staff couldn't have been more friendly and accomodating. Very nice room and lovely breakfast. Already recommended it to others.

The hotel was booked by a travel agent in Zurich for me and it was well below what I was expecting. The hotel is tired and dirty and really needs a total overhaul. The aircon mad really strange noises and the smell was musky. It was not expensive but not suited to me.

Unfortunately we stayed 2 nights. The aircon rattled the first hour of operation like mad, the remote control reached only 1 meter of distance, the 2 big aircon converter units on the balcony (for the whole floor) made our sleep miserable the whole night. The neigbor in the adjacent appartment added with loud conversation to our displeasure. I cannot recommend...

We spent a night at the Excelsior in Pavia together with our children. The hotel and the room were in a 50ties style. As a three-star hotel, it met our expectations. The hotel is located very close to the railway main station of Pavia. Nonetheless, it is extremely quiet. Breakfast was as expected. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
