        • Location is convenient to the train station and this hotel is a good mile from the Duomo. The staff were friendly and reception is open 24 hours, bed is generally clean.

          Not great customer service and room was small as well.

        • The city was amazing and this hotel was decent. The price was good and the staff were friendly for the most part, except one guy was a little odd. The room was great and breakfast was nice and handled by the receptionist.

          This place was laughable and will go down in my memory as the very worst place i have ever stayed.

          Poor service.
