I had a rough idea of what to expect based on reviews, but really loved this nice, lovely hotel. Wasn't too far away from the old city center, which I would frequent or the train station (about 10-15 minutes' walk away). Wasn't too surprised about the city tax because all Italian hotels I stayed in had those.

When entering the hotle, we were impressed with the elegance from the main lobby and with the politeness from the lady at the reception desk. We stayed in room 106 with a king sized bed. The sheets were clean, the walls were dirty and the air didnțt smell to fresh. Anyway, the bathroom was big and clean and we found... More

The location is in the construction area and hard to find even with map. Maybe ask the actual direction before your trip. Once you get to the hotel, it is very convenient to all the sights and train station and restaurants. The staffs are so friendly. The breakfast is excellent. The room is clean.

The hotel is quite well situated within walking distance of the city centre. Breakfast was good continental style with plenty of choices. No restaurant on site but plenty options near by. There are considerable road works in the vicinity that made locating the hotel by car difficult. Stayed 2 nights in a single room (room 104) which was rather small... More

Although my room was quite small (single twin bed), it was clean and adequate. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Although the construction was still in progress, the hotel was quiet.
