The location is reasonably good, as you could walk to some of the historical landmarks in the middle of town.
However you may wish to avoid this hotel if you are travelling in a group tour. The hotel's drop off point is just short of bizarre! This small hotel is located on a relatively busy street. If the lay-by in front of the hotel is taken by parked cars, then your tour coach practically has no space to park. Imagine your tour coach having to stop in he middle of the narrow street, and the cars behind the coach started honking the coach for blocking the street, 'even before' the driver, with our help, started to unload the luggage of about 25 foreign tourists! While we rushed the bags onto the streets in front of the hotel, they were then blocking the pedestrian flows. No hotel porters were around to help with the hotel guests luggage. I am inclined to think that they do not have one either.
There was some risk that some of the bags being snatched away while they were on the busy street, as it is reportedly an unsafe area as related to us by our Italian guide.
