We arrived at Hotel Derby with the excitement of the Terrace, too bad for us that it was beat up and not very pretty at all, but the view of the duomo is exceptional. The bedroom was really tiny, so not ideal for a young child who needs space to move. On the other hand once we got into bed the room was nice and warm and cozy. Still, the breakfast the next morning was nothing more than a coffee and a slice of break with jam and some cookies, not exactly a well balanced breakfast. Though the attendant was courteous. When i went to pay they told me they only accepted CASH, frustrated by this because i had to walk outside in the rain to the ATM, they apologized but i was still a little annoyed especially since the man made a comment the first night that he assured us we could pay with credit card, and that it would be no problem.
All in all, i would pay 20 euros more and go somewhere else. This place is very much a backpackers hotel/hostel. The only thing nice or exceptional was the man who cleaned our room was very thorough and sweet.
p.s parking down the street is 26 euros a night. and the cheapest closest one is about a 20 min walk and cost 20 a night.
