We stayed at Hotel Ducale in July 2014, and occupied a few rooms among our family members. The rooms were small, but more worrisome were there insect contents. My wife killed a large spider in the room the first day we were there, but despite that we woke up with spider bites -- myself with two on the face, several on the back and shoulders. The next morning I spoke with the man at the reception desk, who looked at me with a straight face and said, "This is a common problem here in our area. I have spiders at my home as well.... But we will have them spray the room today anyway." The next night, we found some ants searching around in the bathroom.
The breakfast was overall good, except try to avoid the hardboiled eggs. One of the days we were there, one of the eggs we opened was rotten. It is unclear to us for how many days they store the eggs.
Finally, the WiFi was absolutely terrible. Very intermittent signal from our room. Somewhat better from the lobby, but still extremely slow.
On the positive side, it is close to public transportation, and there are a few good restaurants in the area.
But all in all, I would do my best to avoid this hotel.
