I stayed here solo to wrap up an 8 day exploration of Italy. I chose this location based on the price and it's proximity to the train station. This hotel was the most sketchy and stress inducing hotel of my trip.
The room: I stayed in the Penelope Cruz room (#6). The bed was made, with a nice arrangement of towels. The bed had a light blanket but no sheets. The power was out for the majority of the evening due to a storm. A nice small balcony reaching onto the street.
The bathroom: The shower had good heat and pressure, but the adjustable height was broken into the lowest position. The bidet was unable to reach a warm temperature.
I cleared it with the staff the evening prior to check out before the usual check out time, and arranged to have a to go breakfast with coffee. I scheduled 25 minutes to check out, walk to the station (5 minutes) and find my train. The credit card machine was out of paper, resulting in a long search for more paper. Long story short, I had to go to an ATM (bancomat) and get cash, he did not have change so I overpaid for my stay, I only got an apple for breakfast, and I arrived to the station just on time to see my train pull away. After needing to pay for the next express train to Rome (€42) to catch my flight on time, I essentially doubled the price of the room.
Overall, this hotel was probably worth the original price with the breakfast. It was absolutely not worth the stress and cost I finally reached after missing my train due to poor staff planning and supply. If I had more time, I probably would have walked back to request some kind of reimbursement for the train, as I kept telling the staff member I didn't have time for this and he was not being helpful.
I would not recommend this hotel.
