10/10 Exceptional

Highly recommend!
Really well kept and comfortable place with great 24/7 front desk. Three of us stayed in a triple room, which was comfortable and spacious enough, updated everything, and great shower. We opted into the breakfast, only 10 euro for three people, which was good and convenient for our exit to the airport. Highly recommend this hotel and will stay again next time we are in Italy’s most delicious city.

I was not particularly impressed with this hotel. The location is great, so if you don’t mind staying in a worn down hotel just to have the location, then this place is fine. But the restroom was dirty and there were hairs underneath our sheets. Everything could use a serious upgrade, the ceiling was literally falling apart. There were chunks that were falling down onto us. Our shower drain was clogged and left a nasty smell. For the price we paid, I was not satisfied.

Good location & great service
Hotel is in a great location to walk around the city. The service was excellent. We requested a crib for our daughter and it was ready to be used upon arrival. Also, the front staff gave us a great service and gave a milk to my daughter for free given that it was late and we couldn’t find a place open to buy one -very appreciated!

4/10 Fair

Even though through expedia we could see that the hotel offers a free parking, once we arrived there we have been informed that there was no available parking and that we have to park either at a private parking with a cost of 24€ for 24hr or park anywhere in the street outside hotel for 9€ for 24hr and the receptionist specifically said “ just pay at any pay&display machine...” likely they allowed us to park temporary on a spot outside hotel in order to check in.. after check-in we got the car to find a spot for parking.. after driving for 10 minutes around we finally found a parking space.. trying to pay at the machine we figured out that wasn’t actually 9€ but much more.. As at the machine the only available language was italian we thought that may be we are making a mistake so we decide to ask someone around.. nobody speaks english there btw.. after 10-15 minutes we finally find a traffic officer and she told us that the hotel has to provide us with the ticket that cost €9, no need of a display ticket from the machine. We went back to hotel to ask about this tickets.. and after complaining that they weisted our time he guy said “but you didn’t ask me for that ticket!!!

Ok for a short visit
The location is great, you can walk from the train station and it is pretty close to all the main tourist attractions. The hotel is old, but I guess ok for a short visit and just to go to sleep. The worst thing for me is that you can see mold in the bathroom. Breakfast was ok.

Amazing location and good value overall, beds were not very comfortable though and a fan in the room would have been good.
