This hotel is right across the street from the station and convenient to it. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the center of town, however, but by definition no hotel is close to both the station and the sites.
Some reviewers have commented that you can hear the trains, but they did not bother us. Our room faced the station, and while we were aware of them at times, it was not disturbing or very loud. Rick Steves says in his review of this hotel that it doesn't have character. I disagree. Our room was a triple, not huge, but adequate. It was bright and clean, and the bathroom newly redone. The staircases have beautiful stained glass windows and marble stairs. The place is full of period furniture, and is very comfortable. We ate in the "fancy" restaurant and it was great. Service was excellent, too.
The staff was pleasant and tried to be helpful, but you'd be better off asking at the TI offices, since the staff did not have accurate information on some things. But, all in all, it was a pleasant stay and I would stay there again.
