Pleasant hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean. Pity there is no breakfast but a convenient bar just across the road does a nice cappuccino and had fresh croissants every morning. A conveniently priced hotel if you're visiting the Cersaie trade show. Other hotels tend to be a very expensive alternative during this time

Well, it's 10 minutes walk from railway station situated in quiet neighborhood, 25 minutes walk to city center. Rooms are clean but rather basic, bathroom is clean too. Wifi is free and fast, there is a TV in the room. Good choice.

The hotel was great, don't assume wrong because of the one star mark. The hotel was clean, warm, with a big shower (also the towels were provided) and it is close to the city. The staff was very polite :)

We stayed at the Hotel Ideale overnight en route back home after a week in Tuscany. The staff was very helpful and kind, enduring our weak Italian skills. We were 'upgraded' to a room that was more like an apartment. If only we could have stayed a few days to enjoy it better.

Clean and good sizes room but with the usual tiny shower. Out of the historical centre but close to the bus. Helpful staff that were helpful and friendly. On the downside you could hear everyone walking up the stairs and noises from above. Great value for the price

The hotel was ideal. very close to the old town and train station. The owners have water for guests which was a nice touch. The room was clean and secure. Very quiet neighborhood. Bathroom was a little small especially the shower area, although it was clean.

Tiny hotel but rooms are quite big and basic. We landed quite late at night and when we arrived at the hotel, it looked really dodgy from the outside. However,the owner was really helpful and he even offered a lift to the train station in the morning, which we refused as it was a 10-15 minute walk... I would recommend...

Clean rooms, well located. It was a 5min walk to the station, 15min walk to the show grounds. No breakfast or extras, just fab value. The rooms have been renovated to a good standard. The hotel is located in a semi run down area hence the bargain price. Would return if in the area again.
