The location of this nicely restored hotel (as Best Western does very well all over Europe) is ideal. Just a few steps from the central plaza (Praca di Geraldo), everything is accessible on foot. We walked for three days and saw everything the city had to offer--cathedrals, roman ruins, the aqueduct, cobbled streets, and plenty of lovely architecture al lover this town, made better with a bag of freshly-roasted chestnuts, We arrived by train, with a very reasonable €5 taxi ride to the centre.
The hotel itself was good, rooms a little on the small side, but we were on a good B&B deal and didn't do anything but sleep in the room. No great view. Very clean, modern, everything worked. No tea or coffee facilities, which I missed. The breakfast was standard, and decent, but we avoided the unheated cooked eggs and bacon, not appetising. The cups were extraordinarily thick, and cold, and so the coffee from the pots was too quickly cold. I ended up filling them with hot water first to preheat them. Simple things, but important. Stff were friendly, and we made no special requests so cannot comment on the service. Room was always clean on our return. A truly lovely city to visit. Highly recommended--follow the top ten form Trip Advisor, grab a map and go!
