The room was clean if somewhat small with a tiny bathroom and an equally small shower. The staff were alright but not the friendliest. This hotel is located a short walk from the station and within walking distance of some of interesting sights. It is a good hotel on a budget if staying for a short while only.

We spent 2 nights in the CIT Hotel Britannia during the Christmas Holidays, and we had a somewhat disappointing experience. The hotel is well located in between the traing station and the city centre, no need to drive or take public transports to visit the city. The restaurant/bar area is very comfortable and there is a nice and safe kid...

This is a very central hotel, next door to a wonderful trattoria. The room was big, clean and adequately furnished but the bed left a lot to be desired. Lumpy, very low and the bedding was barely big enough. The breakfast was lovely, the staff pleasant and extremely helpful.

I stayed here for three nights while visiting my daughter. The hotel is a fab location, just a few minutes walk across the Piazza from the station. My room was a good size, nice comfy bed, bathroom was also a good size. Everything was clean, although the carpet could have done with being cleaned. When I arrived the weather had...

Plus points: Good location not far from UNESCO World Heritage Palazzi Rossi and close to Principe Metro, Main Rail Station, and buses. Main receptionist thoroughly professional,knowledgeable, charming, knowledgeable, and helpful. Downside: Other receptionist challenged by lack of comprehension and possibly imperfect use of English and internet in that language. This hotel is tired and needs a makeover OR it needs...

We went on a cruise and hotel was 500m from the port. Also it's near train station. Room was big enough but the shower was so tiny. And although hotel had elevator you still need to climb/come down some stairs which is not easy with big suitcase. Breakfast was simple, lots of sweets, no egs or bacon. All in all...
