This hotel was excellent. It was quaint (loved the old-fashion elevator), friendly, accessible to the public transportation (train/bus station just a few blocks away). Take the train straight from the airport. The front desk was very helpful and spoke English since we didn't speak Italian. They gave us places to go for a quick bite or nice dinner out and recommended us taking the train to get to our cruise ship (saved us a few dollars on that one). The hotel also had a small bar area which was much less expensive than the local cafes and offered complimentary appetizers and snacks. It was a nice place to relax for an hour or so before heading to the room. The room was spacious, beautiful and clean. Our room was complete with hardwood floors, canopy bed, desk sitting area as well as a large bathroom with all the comforts of home. Best of all was the complimentary breakfast buffet - amazing! Italian delights in meats, vegetables, cheeses and pastries as well as the tradiditional eggs, potatoes, cereal, juice. I enjoyed my cappuccino each morning. Everyone was so friendly and the location close to transporation allowed us to get to all the sights or just take a leisurely walk. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to all.
