We stayed here for 4 nights in September:
Location is fantastic. Their 6th floor restaurant has an outdoor patio with a view of the Duomo. Just a few blocks form the train station also. The staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations, getting taxis as needed, and answering questions. The complimentary breakfast is decent. Our room was recently updated and kept clean. The beds were good.
Cons: This is more of "expectation". Hotel rooms in Italy tend to be small, and this was the case here. Not a major issue if you are not going to spend a lot of time in your room.
Overall, we would stay hear again and expect an equally satisfying experience.
