Hotel is in a great area. We arrived and were shoved into a room with a couch bed with a mattress the size of paper. Very uncomfortable. They had forgotten our booking and tried to shove us into a room in the corner. We complained and the ignorant manager claimed to speak no english even though we heard him later... More

Yes it is close to Duomo, yes it is cheap but it comes with a price. We stayed at some amazing places on this trip so we were due for a let down and we knew when we booked it we were not going to get the B&B treatment but come one! Very small rooms right on the street, very... More

This is a standard 3 star city hotel - ok for 1-2 nights, but nothing to remember. It's best feature is its location - it couldn't be more central, just around the corner from Duomo and shopping area, with direct metro connection to the central station. Basic room, new and clean, rather small but good enough, with everything necessary. Bathroom... More

The hotel was just round the corner from the cathedral and a few metres from the metro. Main downside was the noise from trams in the street under our window which seemed to run continuously from early morning to late night. Some of the staff were lovely, others not so. The dining room was small and cramped.

It's located two minute walking from the Dome and metro station. This is its strong point. My room was very very small. But it was ok for one night. The staff was very efficient. Good breakfast in the tiny breakfast room.

The room was very small and cramped but clean and tidy. Breakfast was a no go area, once again too small, so we found a great patisserie around the back. The staff where friendly and the location is great but i would no go back. Three nights was too much for such a small space.

The location really is great, you have just two minutes to spend when walking to the cathedral, the subway stop is just around the corner. The street rooms are a bit too noisy, but spacious, and the breakfast is good, staff also.

This is very simple hotel with all basic things you need. Location is very good since it is very close to Duomo. Breakfast is good by European standards and much better than typical American breakfast. While it was quite warm outside, we were told that air conditioning is not available in March. Staff is OK. I would stay in this... More
