just off the main pedestrian street, close to castle and only 5-10 min walk from duomo (cathedral)... outside looks anonymous, but inside is different...smart lobby, stylish stone staircase (but a lift too), nice breakfast room (with non-stop sport on tv, which we were happy with but some might not be) and we were given an upgrade to a spacious suite for our 4 nights, which was appreciated. our room safe had been left inoperative by previous guest, but that was soon sorted by helpful staff.
only 2 downsides would make me hesitant about staying again. first, the room was very warm and the noisy airconditioning did not seem to help much. also, unless you want a standard touristy meal, there is not much by way of nightlife in the immediate area.
with regard to previous comments about noise, yes you get a little occasionally (especially if you are trying to get some air by having the window open), but really not bad for a city centre.More
