This hotel was very charming. My niece and I had the room with "private exterior bath" and were not sure what to expect. It is a room with a private bathroom down the hall. When I say down the hall, I mean you have to walk past several rooms and it uses the same key as the room to lock it. I would suggest the hotel provide bathrobes for the guests of this room and maybe a shelf to place toiletries on.
The hotel does offer free wi-fi, but you need to be in the lobby area to access. Important: If you need to access facebook, forget it! It gets blocked along with many other sites. If you don't care about accessing many sites, then this is a great bargain.
The location was really nice, hotel staff very friendly and accomodating. We had many choices of restaurants and shops nearby. We thought we could walk from the train station but we brought a bit too much luggage. If you don't have a whole wardrobe to pull, it would not be a bad walk. The taxis are pretty pricey for the distance because they will charge for bags and stuff. We were able to walk to the train station for all of our other needs.
The breakfast was mediocre, but par for what we have had in other hotels during our trip in Italy.
