I recently stayed at the hotel for two nights on a trip to see the exhibitions in the city with my daughter. I have to say the hotel was lovely, rooms and facilities were clean and homely, staff were extremely helpful and food was great. The hotel is ideally situated to explore on foot the whole of the city. We... More

Stayed there for one night. I woke up at 4am because of cold. The outside temperature was +3 but the heating was off. When I asked the lady at the front desk to help me with it she muttered in half-Italian-half-English that she couldn't help me and went away. The bedclothes had blood stains from the previous guests. The location... More

Usually, we don't comment the ratings because everyone is free to do the considerations he want (we not claim to please everyone) but we can not accept being told things completely false. The night receptionist has verified the effective malfunction of the heating at 04:00 in the morning. While not finding a cold temperature in the room (the guest is... More

Stayed two nights here whilst looking for student accommodation for our daughter. It's clean and tidy, the water's hot and the air condoning works well. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We did think it was very noisy outside at night but, overall, it was good value for money. As long as you're not expecting The Ritz for the... More

Good value hotel, close to many attractions. Comfortable and friendly. A little noisy in the street at times but that's because it's near the university and there are a lot of young people about giving the area vibrancy.

Overall we had a very enjoyable stay. Good points: - great location: under 10 min walk to city centre. Wonderful selection of restaurants and bars around the hotel. The osteria just a few doors up ("the bear") served excellent (and great value) dinner. - friendly and helpful staff at the reception - free wifi in the hotel. We had no... More

Three of us shared a room with 2 beds. The beds were comfy and clean. Staff was very pleasant and helpful, the breakfast was better than others and had a nice selction of fruit, cereals, baked goods, and coffee. The location is great, except that also means you have street noise as there are bars and restaurants everywhere. I found... More

university hotel offers well equipped clean rooms, a very good location, friendly and helpful staff for a reasonable price. the only problem for me that they provide the weakest breakfast i ever see in italy. even the capuccino was tasteless. many two star hotels or b&b s serve much better breakfast.

The location of the hotel is great, very easy access to everything in the city centre. The train station is a short walk away which makes it very convenient. Good complementary services in the room, but the rooms could do with a refurbishment. the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good on the sweet side, but very poor on savoury... More
