I booked the Ipnos in a hurry from the Easyjet hotel booking facility as the price and location looked good and I didn't have time to search around. I was very pleasantly surprised to find it so comfortable and thoughtfully decorated, and particularly impressed by the state-of-the-art, power/waterjet shower installed in my room's private bathroom. I was also delighted to have wi-fi readily available at all times, and a nice sized table to spread out on, and generous storage space (with proper hangers!). The welcome from Rosanna and her colleagues was very warm and helpful, and being a small, friendly B+B it's easy to get to know the other guests. The whole building is currently undergoing renovation, so care has to be taken in reaching the first floor premises, and there's currently scaffolding in the courtyard and work taking place during the day, which might disturb a siesta, but my courtyard-facing room was very quiet at night, surprising given its very central and 'interesting' location - between the central station and the port but also round the corner from the university and historic centre, so very buzzy nearby. The breakfast voucher choice at the nearby Pellagria - a popular hangout with students and families - is very generous, with a choice of savoury as well as the usual cornetti and sweet pastries. The Ipnos will be even more of a comfortable, good value and central choice when the building is finally restored to its former glory (with a modern accent of course).
