First impressions of La Fortezza were not great - new tram works behind high fence right in front of hotel (apparently way behind schedule) and carpet on stairs up to Reception needed cleaning/renewing. However, was given a great welcome by Giuseppe Condemi, the star of this hotel, who showed me personally to my room. He was of great help before... More

Guiseppe at Reception was super. We dropped our bags off before returning a rental car. We mentioned that we would be doing a Hop On Hop Off Tour before returning and he made sure we were comfortable with using Transit and walking then gave us some excellent advice along with a highlighted map to walk back to the hotel after...

Although the roads around the hotel are under construction, you can arrive at train station in 15 minutes and at Duomo in 25 minutes by walking. The reception staff were helpful and polite. The rooms were big and clean. The breakfast was very delicious and rich.

We were very pleased with the staff, hotel, and the breakfast that was included. Our room itself was okay, it was clean and quiet. The room was a bit outdated/needed to be redecorated, it had lovely lime green faux finished walls. The air conditioning worked but we couldn't get it cold enough for our liking, it kept resetting through the... More

Dear Comelia, many thanks for recommending Hotel La Fortezza to other travelers ! We are only 15 minutes on foot far from the Galleria dell’Accademia and the Piazza del Duomo.

Hotel is in a central location with most tourist attractions and the bus and train stations easily accessible on foot. It clean and the room was of a decent size. Breakfast was a buffet selection of cereal, fruit, pastries, toast etc. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would happily stay here again.
