Hotel is a bit dated and the rooms are quite small. Having said that the hotel and our room were very clean - and the bed comfy. The reception staff were helpful and friendly too taking time to recommend restaurants. The main bonus though is the location. Centrally located for a good base when exploring this beautiful city.

I would love to give a good rate, but as I found about 15 bites on my body after leaving room 33 unfortunately I cannot. Please do something to protect your future customers, read about bed bugs and make action asap.

I stayed at this hotel for just one night due to its proximity to the airport and a very early departure time. My room was compact but very efficiently laid out-super clean. The staff was very friendly. I ate dinner in the on-site restaurant. The 10 euro price was excellent value. They had a breakfast bag ready for me the... More

Great value, really enjoyed my stay! Ample-sized room, quiet, very clean, and a friendly cadre of staff that were happy to help (sadly, not always the case in Italy). The difference in this hotel is that you can tell the management are professional and take their jobs seriously and the staff genuinely care about their guests. I will return when... More

This hotel was booked for me on behalf of a colleague. I had stayed years ago and remembered out dated rooms and shiny bed throws so I was pleasantly surprised on this trip.

We stayed one night at this hotel when touring as it has easy parking although a little hard to find. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable and if you book ahead on the Best Western website you can pick up a good B&B rate. Would stay there again.

Nice surprise. 20-30 min walking to the center, too much, but they have free bike and the ride is very enjoyable, also because it's in a cyclable road. Free parking for your car, staff nice and helpful, undubtley worth the money. So i suggest this hotel from may to september when rains are uncommon and you can move by bike.

Hotel was excellent. Much better than a three star. Beautiful decor , good facilities , helpful staff. Little unusual themed objects placed in every common area. We were getting an early morning flight and were looked after very well at a very early hour.
