Stayed here for two nights in a single bed room. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. the shower was in a bit of an akward setting, but nothing too bad. Water pressure was good and plenty of hot water. This place is a ten minute walk from the train station and ten minutes from the hotel to the Main Duomo Square. Staff was excellent, they arranged a taxi for me for a really early flight from the airport, it was about a 15 minute drive from the hotel to the airport. Really cant go wrong if you need a good location and clean room for a good price.

This was a perfectly acceptable hotel in an excellent location. Less than 10 minutes walk from the railway station and about 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Good breakfast, friendly staff and nice clean rooms. Not much character but perfect as a base for exploring the city.

Stayed for 2 awful nights with a group. Hotel needs renovation, they offered us upgrade to a room with 2 bathrooms for extra 15 Euro but failed to tell us the second bathroom did not work - the water had been turned off to the 2nd bathroom!! It was like an episode from Faulty Towers discussing this with the receptionist. I was waiting for Manuel to walk in! My advice is look elsewhere until they renovate.

This hotel is located half way through from station to the center in one of main streets. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Especially the front office staff. Check in was smooth. The room that we had was big enough, and clean. Bathroom is quite small but ok. They could have provided us with more shampoo/ shower gel as we were two persons. I saw a used shower gel still in our bathroom, which is the only bit negative thing. The breakfast was good. Overal, I am satisfied with the stay.

Its a great 3 star hotel .great location ,very good staff ,very clean room comfortable. If i want a bigger room i would have booked it but i booked a simple single room in a small 3 star hotel and it was great .i would come back and i do recommend it. Its close to the centre and shopping area and the ruins and tourist information office .10 minutes to the bus or train station so u can visit next cities easily .
