    Superb

    We stayed in the new wing and the room was very modern, clean, spacious and efficient. Since we we departing by train, this hotel is conveniently located next to the train station. The was no problem with noise from the city or the trains. We were also able to walk everyday to the main shopping,tourist areas and fine restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

    There is no adjacent parking. The hotel is on a one way street and is difficult to find.

    Very convenient location for shopping and seeing many major sites. Friendly staff that was helpful with recommendations for eating and seeing the sights. Housekeeping was superb.

    Quad room's 2nd bed was not comfortable. It would be worth the money to have a 2nd double room. This is my only complaint.

    Very good

    The location as its close to the main station where we could travel even to bologna, venice, pisa,just buy taking train from main terminal. Its just 5 min walking from the hotel itself. For budget traveller can also buy water,and snacks at the supermarket mita/meta supermarket few meters away from the hotel, in between the hotel and the station but on the other side of the street of the hotel. The food is not too good, bread was dry, no toaster, but the toiletries in hotel are good, tub, etc all worked perfectly.

    The location was excellent and great for exploring the city that is just a short walk to the centre. Location was good and quiet. Our room was full of character, clean and newly refurbished. I would have no hesitation to stay again or recommend. The staff very helpful and friendly, good breakfast.

    Good

    The rooms were clean, breakfast was sufficient. Location was very near to train station with only a short 10 minute walk to the centre. Shower was excellent and room was cleaned thouroughly each morning.

    Room for four was small with no walking space. The hotel staff were not particularly helpful in advising tourists yet their english was good.

    Good

    1.Excellent location. 2.good breakfast. 3.helpful reception staff. 4. Convenient luggage storage facility. 5. Decent room size.

    We stayed there for 1 day in the last week of March. Were given a room in the new wing of the hotel. We were greeted by stinking corridors and mosquitoes in the room. The reception staff very kindly (!!) provided us with mosquito repellant mats. 2.The lifts are tiny( very tiny). 3.The hotel does not mention anywhere that airconditioning cannot be switched on till may. It was quite warm and we had to sleep with open windows. 4.Close proximity to the train station does make it a little noisy but is not bothersome 5. Good for an overnight stay only. The main reason being the stinking corridors !! They really stink !!!!!!

    Modern design, great bathroom, excellent breakfast. In walking distance to major sites.

    Poor ventilation. Room was stuffy and when we opened windows had fumes from bus stop below window and lots of mosquitos come in. Took 2 hours to find hotel because street name not recognised by GPS or locals. Room key was also not working so we had to use 2 devices to get into room.

    Walking distance to train & major attractions felt very safe walking alone Hotel very clean, breakfast very nice. Outside patio for late night wine. Great bathroom! Intercity train track in front of hotel but was no problem @ night

    For only having shopping day trip thought to expensive
