Followed recommendations in the Rough Guide to find this place. Its location is excellent. Its a short walk to the main square in the city centre, but the street the hotel is on is quiet. There are a couple of very nice restaurants just outside the door which was good for me arriving late. The hotel is well maintained, very clean with spacious rooms and air-conditioning that works (essential in the summer months). Staff are very friendly and speak English well. Breakfast is good but a bit pricey compared to eating in a nearby cafe (if your Italian is up to it!). On English speaking channels on the TV (didn't care personally) but there's free WiFi if you really really can't take a break from Facebook for a bit.
