The hotel is situated about 10 minutes' walk from the Duomo. It is quite small, perhaps 12 rooms, and everything has a welcome sedateness to it -- you feel like you are visiting a friend's home. The room was a little cramped but comfortable, the fittings were modern, and the internet connection was weak in some parts of the room. Nevertheless, this is a great place to stay.
The staff are very polite and helpful. Breakfast is served in a room with only three tables; you eat on chinaware with good cutlery, and you are personally waited on by the manager. You get your choice of coffee prepared as you like it -- cappuccino, "American", espresso, etc. -- plus cereal, croissants and rolls and jam and butter and cheese and meats. Overall, it's a friendly establishment that stands out for its genuine hospitality in a city where things are usually impersonal and touristy.
