We stayed here two nights in October. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the Duomo area with a streetcar located across the street. Also convenient is a McDonalds across the way for a quick breakfast if you don't want to do a bistro/coffee bar. The hotel breakfast is pretty expensive at $30 a person. The rooms are small but pretty typical for a large city, but they are very well appointed with jacuzzi baths in each room. The hotel seems to be a business hotel since there were very few guests with us over the weekend. The front desk is very helpful and polite and speak good english. We would definitely stay here again.
