Grateful for any feedback from people familiar with one or both of these places. They both seem to have availability for our desired dates. Price would be slightly better at Mozart, as the price quoted includes breakfast. Also, Mozart would be an actual bedroom as opposed to a loft bed at Ripetta. That said, I was kind of already getting comfortable with staying at Ripetta, until Mozart confirmed availability.
Are the locations comparable? We enjoy walking and would otherwise be likely to rely only on public transport. My sense is that both places may be comparable in this regard, though I really don't know. Also, any input on how the neighborhoods differ would be really helpful. Ideally, we will have some meals in occasionally, so any nearby food (and wine) shops would be a plus, especially those with more "gourmet-type" offerings but on a prepared basis as we won't plan on any major cooking.
