This hotel provided great value at the time of our stay (Easter weekend). For 75 Euros a night, it provided simple, clean accomodations within walking distance of the train station, and just steps from the Duomo. The bathrooms are located outside the bedrooms, and can be either shared or private depending on how much you pay, but were kept clean. Our room's window opened up to a view to the left of the Duomo, and one night there were even performers playing music right below our window (in front of a large crowd in the street below). Although the furniture (all wood) was a bit dated compared to other hotels we stayed at in Venice and Rome, my significant other felt it gave the place character and charm. The only downside was that the free Wifi is only accessible from the lobby, not the room, but that wasn't too inconvenient since we spent most of our stay outside seeing the sights.
