After reading both the good and the bad reviews of the Ideale on Venere, I decided to take a chance on it since I was in the mood to save a little money and wanted to be close to the train station. I was not disappointed and can say definitively that the bad reviews are out of date. The Ideale has been very recently renovated. It looks brand new with sparkling tile floors, fresh paint, and modern fixtures. There were even nice paintings on the walls. I opted for a room with a shared bathroom, which was very nice and immaculately clean. I seemed to be the only one using it. I don’t know how the number of stars a hotel receives is determined but this one-star was better than many of the two-star places I stayed. I had a clean, spacious room with a big bed, sink, desk and wardrobe. There was even a refrigerator in the room. My window looked out onto a quiet garden. Towels, hand towels, soap, and shampoo were provided. It is located in a residential area. There were nearby restaurants and a market with superb fruit two blocks down the street. The restaurant recommended by the guy in the hotel was really good. It took me almost exactly 10 minutes to walk to the train station. The historical center is another 10 minutes straight down Via dell’Independenza, which is not a bad walk under a portico with shops and restaurants almost the entire way. To find the hotel, take the bridge over the tracks from the train station, then take the first left. At the first real street you come to on the right you’ll see the signs that lead you right to the hotel. I was there on a hot evening in mid-July but had no trouble sleeping after asking for a fan. It’s a great value in an expensive city if you don’t mind being a little way from the center.
