Not the best stay in an hotel; Upside: In the city Not expensive for the location Downside: Air conditioning didn't work properly Parking would have been free but weren't informed, added cost of 20 euros

It´s a rare hotel: its staff is gentle and simpathetic! It´s not common in Italy! They smile! It has free internet point, what helped me a lot, it´s in the middle of many shops and restaurants, 10 minutes walking to Piazza Maggiore, and 10 minutes from Railway Station. My bedroom was small but in a confortable size, facing the street.... More

I only stayed one night, in a single room, everything was fine without being special. The room was small but clean and adequate. Although my room faced the main street, the double double glazing meant I had a good night's sleep. The breakfast was basic, but again adequate. The staff were helpful. It is not a luxurious hotel, but the... More

I was torn whether to give this hotel a poor or fair. It was clean, decent size, bed ok, breakfast ok, nice people but the air conditioning was useless and I was miserable. We chose this hotel specifically because it advertised air conditioning.

I was booked into the Donatella as I was a late addition to the business trip. The rest of the party stayed elsewhere. I found the Donatella basic but friendly - they didn't laugh too much at my Italian and they were helpful. The room was clean, and being at the rear of the hotel was quiet, but with no... More

I recommend this hotel for business travelers, as it is in such a fantastic location and the staff is very helpful and friendly. But do not expect atmosphere or luxury in any way. The rooms are very basic, and my twin-sized bed was acceptable, but not hugely comfortable.

I booked my reservation at least 2 months in advance. Wow, Very expensive, but I guess that's what it is when you have a nice location and are in San Francisco when an event like ORACLE is in town. Before our trip, I was phoned at home about attending a sales pitch for other properties by Shell Vacactions. I said... More

The best thing about this hotel is its staff, friendly helper. The hotel is conveniently located near the station, 15 minute walk, and not far from the center and the surrounding area there are good restaurants, bars etc. The hotel itself however is a bad evaluation, the 3 stars are excessive. The rooms are very basic, narrow bathrooms, the soundproofing... More
