“Awful! Thr most basic b&b I have ever been to”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

A very very basic b&b, well they just have the bed and not breakfast... He room is extremely simple but ok... Than e terror starts, there is no air conditioning... The Windows are quite old... The bathroom was renovated, but there was no soap, shamppo whatever, nothing and NO toiletpaper... I asked the girl thatworks here for some, and she said they were out, but she was going to get some... Of course she didnt... And as far as I could see other people were having e same problem, since there were notes asking for toilet paper in the entrance... The building is extremelly old, and the place wason the fourth floor, after a huge old stair case, and there is no one to help you eith your lugagge... And I payed 120€ a night, for a place that worths not more than 50€ ... I had a view from the top pof the duomo from my window but honestly, it was not worth it... My advice, avoid it....

Was absolutely disappointed with this stay on nearly every level levels.

First, there is never anyone actually at the place so you need to be specific about what time you're arriving otherwise you'll turn up and nobody will be there with your keys. I arrived at 3pm, reasonable hour, then took me 90 minutes to locate the owners. They don't answer the telephone number on the website and never replied to my emails. I was told my bathroom was for me, I had to wait 30 mins for someone else to finish their business and left in a state. The rooms are stinking hot and very noisy. They dont have air con. A friend up the road rented a room for 1/2 the price and got air con, which I highly recommend in July, it gets warm here. Its 4 flights of stairs up, so if you're lugging around a backpack, have fun. To their credit the room was clean and the wifi was fast.

The overall experience was probably the worst I have EVER experienced and I have travelled pretty much every continent. Especially at 45 Euros per night. Absolute joke, they should change industries, they clearly don't care about hospitality.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

Great location of duomo, which we could see from our room. Advertised as bed & breakfast. No breakfast, 1 towel for 5 day stay, room never cleaned. Unable to reach service desk. It.'s offsite. NO SERVICE. They had us cancel booking on booking.com for better deal and asked us to pay cash probably so we couldn't get money back since there was no kitchen.We did see "housekeeper" was sheets and hanging them in a room that appeared to be kitchen. NOT WHAT WE PAYED FOR OR EXPECTED! Wouldn't use again.
