Why stay at a hotel when you can have a private room at a hostel, plus access to a kitchen. Six mature adults booked 3 rooms at Il Ghiro. As it turned out, Il Ghiro was full, so we were moved a few steps down the street to BenciDormi instead. I don't know what Il Ghiro was like, but BenciDormi was top notch -- I've already recommended it to friends traveling to Italy in the near future (you may have to book through Il Ghiro's website). Easy walking from the SM Novella train station, easy walking to the Duomo and all the other historic sights. It was recently renovated, spotlessly clean, quiet, a great kitchen, private ensuite rooms with all the amenities--AC, hair-dryer, yet retained its classic character. Both Donny and Roberto, the managers, were very nice and helpful. Roberto went above and beyond when we returned for our second stay at the end of our trip, and we got lost driving in and were quite late. He was gracious, helpful, and helped us with reserving a taxi the following a.m.....things that would have been difficult for us with our extremely limited Italian. Thank you Roberto!! Plus there is a free computer for everyone's use. The price was good too. I'd definitely stay there again.
