A tidy hotel, very reasonable priced, and the reception staff were extremely friendly. The location was good too, quite near the metro station. There was a Wi-Fi connection, which was nice. The room was a bit small, but it was OK. We would have liked a refrigerator, but the mini-bar was locked and it was forbidden to keep food there.
There were some problems too, the cleaning staff did not like us very much, because we did not leave the room before noon. Obviously, it is nice to have a clean room, but it is not nice to have the cleaning staff banging and yelling at the door all the morning: "You want the room cleaned or not?!". We were on holiday, so we would have wanted to sleep. And there wasn't any "Do not disturb" sign, but we got one from the reception. However, one of the cleaning ladies was so scary that after this incident I decided to get up early so I wouldn't have to face her again!
Well, it was not too quiet in any case, because the walls were like paper and the people next door got up at 5 A.M. However, the room was very clean, so if you don't mind some "normal Italian noise" and if you leave the room early, this is an OK hotel for you.
We didn't have any meals at the restaurant, but I looked at the menu and it was nice to notice the vegetarian (and even vegan) meals. If we had stayed longer, we would have tried that. The hotel claimed to be very ecological, however, I was wondering if the small plastic soap bottles meet the ecological requirements.
