The hotel is located around 5-10 min walk from the center and 20 min from the train station. It is a place well past its glory days with outdated furnishings. Everything had an old and slightly dirty feeling-especially the carpet. I did not dare walk on it barefoot.
The rude staff on the front desk did not help matters. Carlo and the young woman with the long black hair who checked us in are neither service minded nor even friendly. We did not feel welcome at all.
I had written in advance asking for a quiet room as we are light sleepers and were given a room facing the main street on the edge of the hotel over the trash that was emptied loudly at least twice during the night (separate recycling containers). Combined with traffic from the cars it was impossible to sleep. Note that the hotel was nowhere near full so I do not understand why we were put there despite my request.
On a positive note the breakfast was really good as were the staff there, who were welcoming and friendly.
Overall, I would recommend to avoid.
