I will preface this review by disclosing that I am quite familiar with Urbino, having studied two separate summers on "campus"; so, I did know my way around, though I could see how it would be frustrating to arrive at this hotel if you don't. Despite the fact that this hotel is slightly outside city walls and requires either walking up at least one lengthy hill (two if you're going to take via Mazzini and then via Raffaelo from Borgo Mercatale), and preferably a taxi or 1.50Euro ride on the n.3 pullman for the initial ride there with your luggage, it is actually - as others have said - a mere 15 minute walk from the city center.
The rooms are clean, relatively spacious, with a small tv and plenty of drawer/armoir space. The bathroom I had was immaculate and looked like it was scrubbed down every day. They don't have air conditioning in the rooms, but they do in the lobby. The included breakfast is the simple water/milk/coffee/juice and croissants/bread/ham/cheese/cereal one you'll find at many Italian hotels. The staff is quite friendly and helpful, and will be more than happy to assist you with directions towards the city center or anything else in the vicinity. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
I paid 30Euro/night for this hotel, even taking into account the weekend (Thursday - Tuesday) in a more touristy month (July), and including breakfast. Even though Urbino is a relatively cheap city, if you're willing to walk a bit (which you're going to do anywhere in Italy - live a little!), and don't mind staying slightly outside the city's walls, this hotel is one of the best values available.
