My wife and I stayed a couple of nights here and wished we had booked longer. The place has been recently renovated and they have done an excellent job. Our room was tastefully decorated and a good size. The proximity to the rail station was perfect as we arrived from Venice. Being near to the centre and all the attractions... More

In popular cities there are thousands hotel like this. And that's good, as they offer decent standard for reasonable price (well, question remains what a reasonable price in Italy is???).
