Basic and with outdated decor, but clean. Cleanliness is more important to me than decor. Nice room for the price. Nice view of the river from sixth floor room. Great front desk staff-- helped us navigate bus routes. Comfortable bed, but I did not get much sleep due to the noise. The neighbors TV kept me from sleeping, as well... More

Very moderate rooms definitelly not four stars hotel. They should invest some money in lamps and especially in the showers. We had a room with the smallest shower I have ever seen. You couldn´t move in that narrow space. Breakfast very poor- if you came later you had to wait for everything. Quite impolite staff in the breakfast room. They... More

Positive: friendly, helpful staff. Negatives: everything else..... Location, condition, etc. How this hotel has a four star rating is beyond me. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Booked (bid 4-5 star hotel) through PL with ins. Paid $160 per night. According to front desk rooms for same dates US$101. PL did not stand behind their price guarantee.

If you can tolerate stains on your bedroom carpet, a shower that soaks the entire bathroom floor, overlooking a balcony that serves as a home for pigeons, mediocre food, unreliable wifi, and rude Brits on the late shift, then this is the hotel for you! Most of the day staff, as well as the dining staff, were lovely and helpful.... More

I will give the hotel credit for its very helpful Italian day concierge and restaurant manager. The British night concierge was rude to multiple people, the bar and outside terrace, were locked up at night, and the internet was very spotty. We had to ask for soap in the bathroom, the room was dirty and there was no way to... More

I recently stayed here with a group of students and I must say that this was a FUNCTIONAL hotel. It was certainly not the fanciest and ritziest place but the room was clean, spacious, and the staff bared with our broken Italian in a very kind manner. The breakfast was simple but delicious; the location is not bad for sightseeing... More

- Location: Bad. It's near the bus stop. However, bus route to the hotel is off the main tourist attraction. INCONVINENT. - Room status: Terrible. Just one simple discription : the first thing I saw on the hotel's floor is the bird's feather. - Staff: Kind.

Old hotel, plumbing didn't work, wifi didn't work and we didn't feel comfortable. Go somewhere else if you can. Not close to anything but was on a tour and obviously a deal was made with the tour company. Even the breakfast was horrible. Barely a step above a hostel.
