I was quite surprised when I came upon this hotel, as it differed GREATLY from the photo of the entrance shown on booking sites.There is no longer a marquee, and compared to the newly renovated Hotel Columbia a few doors down, it looks like no one cares about it, either.
Once stepping inside, the lobby area seemed a little shabby as well. As we had just stayed at a 4* in Bologna, we were quite surprised at the the difference 1* made. The room, a triple, as I was staying with my mom and son, was quite large, utliitarian, and the bathroom was quite narrow - no shower curtain and the water sprayed everywhere.
The hardest beds and pillows I've ever experienced - like sleeping on sodden bags of flour), well-functioning A/C - we got the room down to 17C!
Terrific location, close to the train station, supermarket (a small one, about 1.5 blocks away), major bus stop (take the tram to Opicina!). On a side street, so not as much traffic as one street over, but a late night garbage pickup at the end of the block. Helpful staff (Nicolo was great!), limited breakfast, but GREAT coffee and tasty yogurt. About an 8-10 minute walk down to the main drag.
