Hotel Virgilio or Hotel Duomo

Hi,

I am debating between these two hotels which are both well located. Need advice on which is better to stay in with nicer rooms. Any thoughts?

Thanks

WE stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Duomo last May and enjoyed it. The staff was great and very helpful. Our 2nd story room had a small balcony with a partial view of the Duomo. The room was clean and well-appointed with a very nice bathroom. There is a glass-enclosed elevator running up the center of the stairway. Nice breakfast too. You couldn’t ask for a better location, just a few steps to the main piazza and several nice eateries. We really liked Enoteca al Duomo at the top of the steps on the left.

The rooms at the Hotel Virgilio facing the Duomo have fantastic views, but may be somewhat noisy. The Hotel Duomo is set back in an alley, so no "full frontal" views of the Duomo, just the higher parts are visible from some rooms.

Three years ago we stayed at the Hotel Virgilio and although we had concerns about street noise these were unfounded. Our room was simply furnished but a good size with memorable views of the Duomo. The staff were excellent - very professional and most helpful. There is a terrace at the front of the hotel facing the Duomo where we enjoyed drinks.

Thanks. Just returned and chose Hotel Virgilio. Really nice hotel and facing the Duomo. The location was perfect. Glad I picked it over Hotel Duomo. Noise was not a problem.
