The staff is superb at Hotel Arcadia! my mobile service went out on arrival in Italy and I needed a land line to call Verizon to fix it. I wish there had been a room phone. however, the nice young man at the desk allowed me use of the hotel phone to fix Verizon's mess. it took over 30 minutes on the phone and the young man could not have been nicer! there was a young woman another time at the desk who gave us an excellent recommendation for a restaurant, plus other helpful tourist advice.
I do think a better hotel sign is needed.It is not prominent at all, faces the driveway and not the street.We walked from the train station and passed it twice. The hotel location is excellent. it is close to the train(but rooms are very quiet), and walking distance to all attractions and sites of the city.
