Great location, seconds from the Railway Station so very handy for onward travel, but only 20 minutes very easy stroll from the Tower. Loads of funky and fun bars and restaurants right on the doorstep, area felt relaxed and safe. Its just on the edge of the tourist area, so best of both worlds, not too noisy but everything to hand.
Our triple room was actually a double room with a small twin leading off, so nice and roomy, no extra bed squeezed into a corner. Ditto bathroom, good size with everything we needed. Mini bar, hair-dryer, free wifi.. So Far So Good.
Unfortunately the whole place had the feel of a good hotel that had seen better days. The staff on reception were delightful, The pick up at the airport was perfect and worth the 9 euros just for the ease of it all. BUT... the place is a bit scruffy. The bedlinen was good quality but worn, the bathroom was clean in the bits we used - loo, sink etc - but Dont Look Up!!. Doubt a duster had seen the top of the rail for many a year.
Breakfast experience was also a disappointment - the food was great, but there were no tables clear when we got down at just after 9, An elderly gentleman who spoke no Englsh (NOT a complaint, we should speak italian, just a statement of fact...) faffed around moving things that didn't need to be moved, while half the tables stood uncleared. In the end I cleared one myself. There was no coffee in either coffee machine, no eggs left and just a scrap of bacon. But what there was, was splendid.
The sad thing is, this hotel just missed being really good and its problems could be sorted very easily. Fire the cleaner, put someone competent in the breakfast room, splash a bit of paint around and Id be giving it an Excellent.
