I had read the reviews of the hotel and some of the negative comments. Yes, the rooms are old and old fashioned, but the bathrooms are excellent. Opening the window and letting fresh air in takes care of the occasional smell to be expected if the room has not been used for several days. The bed was comfortable and everything worked. Two very pleasant surprises were the staff and the restaurant. I arrived after 2 pm on the first day after a 20 hour trip and wanted something to eat. The staff informed me that all restaurants in the area closed at 2 pm as had the hotel restaurant. When I explained my situation, the manager called the chef and in a few minutes he prepared the specialty of the area, a type of beef stuffed tortellini called casoncelli.It was excellent. I tried the same dish at other recommended restaurants (trattorias) and this was by far the best. I had dinner at the hotel one evening and the food was excellent - baked bass perfectly done. I was there for business but I had one morning free. The person at the front desk planned a walking itinerary for me that touched almost all the highlights of the old city of Brescia. I was able to see and visit in five hours the major squares, churches, and the Santa Giulia museum that is spectacular. The hotel is fifteen minutes away from the old city but it is a very pleasant walk. I did not drive so I cannot comment on parking but I saw other cars parked in the hotel's small outside lot and there is also street parking. But old Brescia is a walking city, one would not drive in it. A car would be useful for the many sights in the vicinity of the city and for going to the nearby lake.
