Ok, I'm not a precious person by any stretch, and am pretty tolerant, but the walls here are paper thin. I could hear every word the people next to us said. Not that they were loud - their voices just carried straight through the walls and into our room. Also, our bedroom appeared to share a wall with next door's... More

Friendly, accommodating, and helpful staff. Good location to train station and walking distance to everything. My only complaints are slow internet, and that it gets hot in late April and the A/C was not activated yet so we were uncomfortable until about 2am when the room finally cooled down. Overall a great place as long as you don't rely on... More

The best thing about this aparthotel is its location, just a few minutes walk from the station, shops and the Duomo, yet it is completely sheltered from the noise and bustle of the city. You cannot hear any city noise or traffic in your room. However you can hear other guests as the walls seem very thin, so if you... More

We, a family of four, spend four nights in this Apartment-hotel and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The rooms was spacious and comfortable, the breakfast simply extraordinary and the service impeccable. Another big point was the possibility to park the car directly in front of the hotel, without the need to enter the ZTL, but still being only minutes away from... More

Very reasonable price with spacious room, staff are friendly and the room is clean. Located in the middle of the city center, hence it is very near to all historial places, shopping, etc. Also just a 5 minutes walk to the main train/bus station, so very convenient to anywhere you want to.

We stayed in a family room for 2 nights in April. The hotel is just 10 minutes walk from the train station. The hotel staff are very helpful and cheerful. The rooms are very nice and well maintained. Only thing is that it has just one bathroom and if you are 4-5 people staying in the apartment, you need to... More

Bathroom huge with walk in shower, toilet and bidet. Microwav, kettle and full size fridge in kitchenette.

Really close to the train station, we walked there with our bag and 2 kids! Our lovely den suite was ready for us and although we didn't use the kitchen, the option was there. Breakfast was great. The owners are very welcoming and accommodating. An amazing restaurant is in the same block and you can walk everywhere from there, even... More

Exactly as described on their web site this hotel certainly lived up to expectation and more. Unique spacious apartment room with lovely vaulted ceiling. We enjoyed the many local restaurants but also at times opted to cater for ourselves in the very well equipped kitchen. Tea towels, washing up liquid etc are provided if you wish to use the kitchen,... More
