Hotel-Minerva S, Direttore at Hotel Minerva, responded to this review

Dear Martin, i'm sorry that some aspewcts of the hotel you did not like it. For the toileteries we had this choice because soap in small botlles, is wasted in large amount. In this way it is more rational and trust me it has happened that someone has stolen them. kind regards from Hotel Minerva's staff More

Hotel Minerva is strategically located right next to the old part. Less than10 minutes walking distance. The front desk was polite and efficient. Our room was just perfect. Clean with a comfortable bed and a lovely private terrace outside the bedroom, with a fantastic view of the city. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Highly recommended.
