I took a single room and it was awefully small. With EUR50, I guess I can't complaint much. The room key (a real key) had a key chain which was almost as big as my palm. The staff just gave me the direction of my room and I had to find it by myself which was not hard considering the small place it was. There was no kettle. The hotel staff said tap water was drinkable but I did not want to take a chance so I bought bottled water from them. There was no iron as well but there was a hair blower. The bed sheet had small burnt holes on it. The room was clean enough for me though. Table lamp and TV did not work and the plugs sometimes went cranky. The window frame was old and broken from outside but the indoor glass window was intact. I could hear the noise from outside. The free wireless internet account was valid for three days only and usage was 6-7 hours. And need to renew the account with the staff after that. The account was only for one log in at one time, it means that I could use it for my mobile if I had already used that account for my laptop. All these could be quite a nuisance. The breakfast was ok with oatmeal and breads. Agreed that it was in a strategic place with Porta Nuovo was just across the street. Beside the hotel was a street with a few good restaurants. One was a kebab restaurant which served delicious kebab and pizza with cheap price. Another one was an interesting restaurant called Ristodesign which gave a unique dining experience. Should try their local beef slices there (forgot what the dish called in Italian). The waitress was so nice that she took time to explain the dishes to me in English. To me I will not go back to this hotel again as there are many more hotels to choose from in this area.
