We saw the good reviews and thought as it is fairly new we would do better with this choice than a hotel. The room it self was a good size- double room for 2 (not as big or pretty as the photo's they have supplied though), very clean throughout- big wardrobe area- big shower and bathroom and everything is still fairly new which is always nice.
Apparently free underground parking which is useful but we didn't need. Quite basic i.e.. Ikea furniture throughout.
Downside- bit of a walk from attractions, service was ok (although we came to check in and the receptionist started checking us out?!) We arrived at 12pm and the room wasn't ready until 4pm when we came back (put luggage in a locked room). Reception is open 9am-7pm and there is a launderette next door. No restaurants that near. Would recommend to those with a car or bigger family and don't mind a walk to the Piazza and local bars/restaurants. Overall good cheap alternative to hotel.
