“Charming, but flawed...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2006

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights at the end of February. The hotel is easily reached from the airport bus. Room was very warm despite very chilly temperatures outside. Staff very friendly and prices very reasonable. BUT BEWARE: do not accept any room on the first floor above the bar below (non related to hotel). They are open till 3 am and play thumping music (on a loop) throughout! After the first night's complaint we were fobbed off by week-end staff saying the noise came from somewhere else in town, it was carneval etc. etc. The second night was hell and we complained strongly. The week-day staff (very charming man)immediately gave us a room on the second floor at the opposite side of the hotel and apologised for his colleague's unhelpfulness. Apparently, there have been perennial problems with this bar and the local authorities had been involved - to no effect so far. Stay at this hotel for location, cleanliness and price, but refuse rooms above the bar.

The university hotel is a very good value choice for 3 star rated accomodation. Very clean, friendly & efficient service & management, ideally located in the heart of the vibrant student quarter but just 10 mins pleasant walk to Piazza Maggiore & 5 mins to Airport Bus stop. Added bonus is that the excellent Osteria Della Orsa is just next door.
