The hotel is very conveniently located near the canal which has great options for going out at night, and is about a 20 minute walk from the Duomo and that area. It's a bit far south for viewing the rest of the city easily, but there is a subway near by, and you can get pretty much anywhere from there. The price is good for what it is, but the hotel is not a luxury hotel in any means - but, clean, and the staff is very friendly. Note - you're not supposed to check in after 2100, and you need to tell them in advance when you're coming, which I didn't do. But the staff was really nice about letting us in - they were very friendly.
