While we appreciated a 5 min taxi from the train (which we highly recommend if you have luggage), and the short walk to Il Duomo, the street noise continued all night long. We had a nice room for 3, which was actually 2 rooms within one, where one had a twin and the other had a queen and the (very small!) bathroom. Elevator only fits 1 person with luggage, but that was how it was all over Italy. Downside - we had booked a reservation to go see David at the museum, but had an emergency where we needed to cancel. We were charged 7 euros per person "penalty" which is their gratuitous charge for every 10 euro entry ticket they sell - we talked to 3 different people and they were all indifferent to our situation and insistent on the penalty payment. In reality, I don't believe the museum would have cared as hundreds of people pass through every day - the hotel just wanted their cut! I'll never stay there again.
