“Good Value, very friendly staff”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

The hotel in itself was quite basic, but good value for what we paid. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly which makes me think I would stay there again if I return to Udine.
We were staying for 3 nights for a wedding and the staff arranged a taxi for us to the Villa which was great.
The location is ideal, a stones throw from the bus and train station (literally a few metres away).

They have a discount for CISM courses participants. This hotel is very close to the train and bus stations. City centre is within walking distance. Rooms are clean and big enough. Breakfasts could be better. I noticed that they don't wash fruits before they put them at the table.

Located just across the train station and a ten minute walk away from the city sights, which is perfect for a solo woman traveler. The rooms were clean, had all the basic necessities, and were quite comfortable. The wifi is free and fast. But the best thing about the hotel is the excellent service. The staff is friendly and incredibly helpful. Their warm smiles made me feel right at home :)

We visited Udine, Italy in early September, 2010, and found this hotel on Trip Advisor. It was even better than we had expected and my review title says it all. It was almost across the street from the rail and bus stations and since we were using the train and buses to travel, it was perfect for us. I'd say it was about a three-star hotel at two-star prices.

My wife and I stayed here as the base for our month-long tour of Italy. The hotel has a GREAT staff, clean rooms, good breakfast, a fantastically convenient location, and a good value. The staff here are all very friendly, and willing to help in any way they can; from recommending local restaurants and making reservations, to giving tips on places to see in Udine and around the region. Maria, in particular, is a very sweet young lady that speaks a plethora of languages, always greets you with a smile, and makes you feel at home the minute you walk in the door! During our stay, we ate breakfast almost every morning; they offer a great spread of pastries, cereal, juices, and FRESH coffee (not instant like at most other hotels)! The rooms are small, but adequate and quite average for Europe in general. The rooms were cleaned every day, with towels and sheets replaced every three days or so. The mattresses in our room were a bit worn, but nothing too bad. Included in our stay was air conditioning and high speed internet at no additional charge. The location of the hotel is ideal for travel, just 100 yards from the bus and railway station, as well as a 10 minute walk to the city center. The area right around the hotel is a little shady, but the hotel entrance is secluded off the street and offers a very nice, safe ambiance when you enter. The hotel has room for parking a dozen or so cars in its off-street courtyard, and parking was never an issue. The hotel also has a few bicycles that you can rent if you want to take them around the city. You won’t regret a stay at this hotel until it comes time to leave, and you feel as though you are leaving a friendly relative’s home.

All-in-all, by far the friendliest hotel in Italy!

My husband and I visited Udine for one night while we were with family. We were on our way to Florence after. The hotel is in an excellent location and the service is exceptional.

The people in Udine are so very kind - it is nice to know that they form part of our roots!!!

The staff was more than helpful. We were out when our family arrived at the hotel and they greeted them and chatted with them until we arrived. They took great care of knowing what are plans were - they helpfed us with booking train tickets and even booked us a hotel in Florence. All hotels should be aiming for this level of service as his was great!!! They are the most friendliest people \i have ever met at a hotel.

Great place to stay!! Breakfast was good as well. Rooms extremely clean.

Perfect location - a one-minute walk away from the train station when you arrive with your bags - a ten-minute stroll away when you return from a night out in the city centre. Relatively quiet from trafic and other noise. Nice - rather small - and very clean rooms. The staff is extremely riendly and helpful. They remember your name - and the second morning you come down for breakfast the just as if you "want the same type of coffee as yesterday". Stayed for a week and I hope that I can return to Udine some day - and will not even look for alterntive hotels (unless this is fully booked).
