The location of this place is stellar....and being a 2-star hotel, it;s very simple and in some ways "you get what you pay for".
-Location: very close to train station and right next to the Duomo, totally central.
-Clean: the room was very clean
-Room size: the room was a good size (we had a double)
-A/C: we had air conditioning, which was welcome in July! Though we DID have to ask the staff to turn it on, they won't unless you ask to save energy. We didn't have any issues with them turning it off as I saw mentioned in a different review.
-Quiet: as far as hotels go, we weren't bothered by any noise from other rooms or the hallways.
-The room smelled HORRIBLE. It had an awful sewer stench, the type that happens when water isn't run through pipes in a long time. Since our windows opened up to a narrow and also sort of smelly interior courtyard, opening the windows really didn't help air it out much.
- View: there was none. It's not important really, since we wanted cheap and easy accommodations and certainly didn't book this room for the view....BUT it would have been nice to have a view that allowed fresh air into the room.
Overall, I'd stay there again since it was clean and cheap....but I'd at least know there's a chance the room might smell pretty bad.More
