I would not recommend this hotel, I would suggest that you pay a bit more and stay somewhere else. The receptionist was rude and every day they turned the air con off at a central point for hours When I complained they shrugged their shoulders and said there was nothing they could do about it because it was on an automatic timer. This is a lie. It was funny how it was always freezing in the staff areas! It wasn't until I started speaking and complaining in Italian did they do something about it. From that point on the air con was not turned off 'automatically' and we had great air con all the time. I felt sorry for all the other guests who would have been hot and with no air con.
If you choose to stay here make sure that you get to the breakfast early because they run out of food quickly and do not top up the food very quickly if at all. The breakfast food is average but ok.
The location is ok if you want to be close to the train station but it is about a 15 min walk into the city centre. Don't bother to use the free bikes that they have because they are dangerous, the seats and the bike chains fall off and the brakes didn't work.
The furniture was old and worn but clean enough. The room was big but the shower and bathroom was small. Our room had a ludicrous excercise bike that was made out to be a feature of the room, it was even promoted to be a special bonus. It made a great rack to dry our clothes on.
