Stayed there for one night on a short trip to the city. Booked a last-minute offer in a premium room for, still, a considerable rate. We arrived with a rental car. No parking in front. That can already be a problem for some tourist not that used to drive in foreign countries. I just put my car on the road/pedestrian walk opposite the building. Check-in was friendly and efficient. So was valet parking (which is really the only option since I believe they don't want discussions with guests whose cars got towed .....). Room was ok. Glad that we knew it's a premium because from its looks I would not have guessed. Very small. Design ok and on the fancy edge but quality of furniture very poor. Lots of items just weren't properly installed, mainly in the bathroom where water was flowing all over the place when taking a shower. The room was with view to the next wall in the interior of the building. Probably not the worst, given the loud street on the other side. Nevertheless, not really what you expect from a Palazzo hotel. TV did not work. When I did get it on, it did not turn off anymore so I pulled all plugs. Small detail but I would also not expect that for such a rate. Breakfast: was a mistake to have had it. Limited selection and poor quality. The scrambled egg did not smell like scrambled egg. The coffee was the worst I ever had. I know breakfast in Italy is not popular but then again, for such a hotel at such a price, that should be taken care of immediately. Depending on what your purpose of your trip is, it is good to know that this hotel is home to larger tourist groups as well. A last word on the location: there is nothing around. We want for a walk after sunset. That was anything but comfortable. Even the locals were holding on to their handbags strongly. The only "attraction" is a small outdoor bar street diagonally opposite the front entrance. I am not sure if that is an attraction for everyone. If choices are that limited, one also limits expectations. To sum it up: I would agree to such a service for a hostel but then at 75% less of the rate or, under present conditions, they should seriousely think about upgrading the building and the services.
