Hotel was extremely clean and had Disco Lights in the Shower! Staff were friendly and breakfast was plentiful. Great location - 5 minutes from the Train Station and the Open Top Bus Tours, I would recommend this City Hotel for a Short Break.

The hotel is very close to the train station, very convenient. It's a very short walk to the Duomo and most tourist areas. Felt safe. Staff was friendly and efficient. The breakfast was good, enough choices.

The hotel is located just across from the central railway station but, unlike most cities, this is a safe, clean area, with good amenities (supermarket, restaurants, shops and take aways).

Super surprised in the best way. Originally booked ibis at aeroport, but read horror stories about boring location and taxi fees the same as to city center.
