We chose the Liberty for a week-long stay based on the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed. Like many other reviewers, we found the ride from the airport passed through some less than appealing streets and we wondered what we were getting into. Any concerns disappeared when we arrived at the hotel and were welcomed into the beautifully decorated, air conditioned interior. Our ground floor room was clean, spacious and very comfortable and despite being at street level, we weren't troubled by noise.
Other reviewers have pointed out the hotel is a couple of hundred meters off the main tourist area but we found that to be no problem - it is a short walk from most of the sites in the city.
Two things about the hotel particularly stood out for us; the breakfast buffet which offered a wide range of pastries,cereals and fruit and the helpfulness of the reception staff. Francesco and Giuliana were both particularly helpful with any questions and were never short of good restaurant recommendations.
Finally it was nice to find a hotel with free, reliable WiFi.
In conclusion, I'd have no hesitation in recommending the Liberty Hotel to anyone wanting high quality accommodation near the city centre.
