From the reviews on this website - I expected a clean and adequate hotel. This was not what was found on arrival. The confirmation from the hotel did indicate that the room we were given was not recently restructured, however there were vast differences from the photos and reviews and the room that we were given. I would not recommend based on the following: 1. Location: The hotel was quite near the train station and not the best neighborhood. It is also on a busy bus route. 2. Cleanliness - The room we were given did not give the appearance of cleanliness. Bedspreads were dingy, carpet appeared dirty, appearance was very old and run down. 3. Bathroom toilet was constantly running - this maybe could have been fixed,but given the other issues - we did not try.
The room size was large enough and the gardens had potential to be be pretty, however again did not appear to be being maintained. I left this hotel and found another very clean and nicely sized room near the Il Duomo for the same price.
