    Air conditioning, elevator, walking distance to the train station, well soundproof windows so noise from the street stays out, little fridge in the room.

    One of the receptionists was unfriendly and seemed annoyed with any questions. The room was way too small for 4 people, it was difficult to move between the beds even and no place to put the luggage. Ironing was not possible in the room because light would blow out. Sockets in the room were hanging out of the walls. Metal shelf in the shower was rusty. The room smelled.

    The hotel is located close to the train station and walking distance from the old city center with all major tourist attractions.

    The bathroom finishing left some room for improvement

    I liked the idea of the hotel being a part of eco friendly world. Hotel is minutes away from the main sightseeing objects and railway station. Room clean & neat and not too much noise from outside keeping in mind that there is a bustling street downstairs. Extremely nice and friendly staff. Thank you!

    The hotel was well situated and the staff were friendly.

    The room I was allocated was poor. It was very cold and the hot water was luke warm and sound proofing was bad. The sink had no stopper so I found it difficult to shave. In general it was 'tired' and in need of an upgrade. However when I complained I was given a much better room that was perfectly good in all respects.

    The location within walking distance of major tourist spots was ideal. The staff was helpful and spoke excellent english. The bathrooms had new fixtures, small but clean. The hotel is eco-freindly - which I appreciated.

    The bed was extremely small and sloped to one end. I was not expecting a large room- but a full size twin bed was expected, this was more like a short cot.

    Clean, comfortable, and affordable. Great location, good breakfast, and really friendly staff. My thanks to Paola, she is really amazing.

    The location was perfect. Close to the train station and the duomo

    This is not a 3 star hotel. The pictures on the Internet falsely represent the rooms. The rooms were actually dark, damp and miserable!

  • Couple
    5.8

    The location was nice, close to the main railway station. Reception was open 24h. Breakfast was okay.

    Wi-fi came with an extra charge, after I paid it didn't work, staff couldn't make it work, and they didn't refund us. Bathroom had no bathtub, only a shower with no curtain. There was an unpleasant smell coming from the street sometimes. We couldn't leave devices to charge in the room because taking away the room key shuts off the electricity.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Friendly and helpful staff, good location, clean. This is short and sharp, but sums it up. The staff really was very helpful, and the hotel is just a 5-10 minute walk from the major sights (and the main railway station). Very well located for a short city break. Front rooms are located towards a rather busy road, but if you keep the windows closed, you can actually get a good nights sleep.

    The room itself was rather small, which was to be expected. But the bathroom really was too small. Coming out of the shower you had to watch that your towel did not fall straight into the toilet. The width between shower cabin and wall just simply was not wide enough to allow usage of the sink for a grown up person, unless you placed yourself diagonally. Breakfast was fine, but could have done with a bit more variety, not the same cheese and ham every morning. TV facilities were not quite up to standard of comparably priced accommodation in other major cities (but we would not care much).

  • Couple
    3.8

    It was close to the train station. There were lots of shops and restaurants in the area.

    It was noisy even with an upgrade to the courtyard side with an additional fee. Staff were rude (argumentative and blaming us for the poor condition of the hotel: 1) they told us that we didn't know how to use the shower properly & blamed us for causing the flooding into the sleeping area, 2) they tried to charge us for the blanket that got wet subsequent to the flooding due to improper flooring in the shower area, 3) when complaint was made to the manager, he put us off a few times and the problem was never resolved, 4) they refused to change our room. We spent more time trying to resolve problems than had time for sightseeing. There were other nicer and cheaper hotels in the area. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

  • Couple

    Great Location, very very friendly and informed staff. Hotel was clean, and pleasant

    Reception is on the 3rd floor while rooms where located on the second floor. Felt like anyone could walk into the hotel

    The breakfast room is uncomfortable, there's very few space. Wi fi not included, we paid 15€ for 2 nights
