We made reservations in this hotel based on the combination of a cheap price and TripAdvisor recommendations. I must say I was quiet disappointed when I entered the room. However, after some days I was a bit more pleased.
To sum up, here are some pros and cons.
Most importantly, the hotel is very noisy! Do not stay here if you are easily wakened! One morning around 7 o’clock we were waken by a lot of people checking out, screaming and running in the hallway. The walls are very thin so it seems and sounds like the people outside in the hallway are actually inside your room. If you stay here, be sure to bring earplugs!
The rooms are ok. There are tiles on the floor. The room seemed kind of dirty, but it was actually clean. The bathroom in our room was very small, but I guess that is very typical for Italy. The towels are paper-thin, but that is also typical for Italy.
Do not expect a good breakfast. Our first day nearly all the food was already eaten, and the only things left were some cakes, yoghurt and muesli. The other days the breakfast was better. It might be a good Italian breakfast, but too sweet and light for us used to a German/American breakfast.
When booking our two rooms, we specifically asked for separate beds. Both of the rooms had double beds, and in one of the rooms the bed could not be separated. In one of the rooms the mini bar/fridge was not working, but this was fixed after three days of reminders.
This hotel is very cheap! The location is good. The staff is helpful and speak good English. The rooms are cleaned every day.
I think that the other reviews on Trip Advisor are overrated. This is an ok and cheap three-star hotel. It probably gives you good value if you do not care that much about where you stay.
