The hotel is set in an ideal location and has ample parking for travellers.
I spent one night of our honeymoon attempting to sleep in the sauna like temperatures of the room as the centrally controlled air conditioner (controlled by the hotels reception) had 2 settings, off or blowing boling hot air. We were advised by reception staff that the majority of Italian hotels centrally control room temps (strange how every other hotel I have visited in Italy allowed me to control my rooms temperature).
Reception were kind enough to offer another room at midnight but the room was as hot and would have only increased the hassle incurred.
Managed to get off to sleep around 4am when the room had cooled down with the windows wide open (onto a well lit courtyard allowing the room to be bathed in strong artificial light).
I have slept in worse places but not many, come back Travelodge all is forgiven!!
I would rate this hotel as average based on the list of pros and cons but I would not consider this on par with a boutique 5* hotel with which this hotel aims to compete.
If only the basic issues were resolved then this hotel could be marvellous.
