Arriving late on a weeknight from the train station, we six were quite fortunate that the taxi driver knew the location. A small sign is all one sees to designate the hotel. Once out of the taxi, we realized that there was no street level entrance, STAIRS to go down to the entrance, and no porters to be found. We buggy-lugged the luggage and entered a nicely appointed, modern lobby...............only to be met with a stone faced employee who checked us in and gave us our keys. (The next morning, the young lady and subsequent young women on the desk were beyond helpful, charming, and made us feel quite welcome-I shared this info with the manager)
Rooms were spacious, clean, air conditioning good, bathroom clean and hot water was very good. We were not facing the street and had no noise from outside whatsoever.
Breakfast (included) had juices, coffees, pastries, cheese and salami (delicious), rolls, scrambled eggs, bacon and assorted yogurts etc. Staff brought cappuccino upon request and it was delicious.
Location! Location! Location! Hotel Garibaldi is located near many, many delightful restaurants, taxis, buses, Hop On Hop Off, and located within walking distance to many incredible sights.
We walked the area surrounding the hotel both day and night and felt quite safe and enjoyed every minute of it.
Downside: steps going down to entrance of hotel...........not good for elderly or handicapped.
