My Italian agent booked this hotel for a group of 20 for 6 nights, and I was dreading it. Hotels near train stations are often comfortable but charmless. I am happy to say I was completely wrong. All of us checking in at the same time--a bit out of sorts from a long lunch in Orvieto--created temporary confusion, and I was less than kind to the man helping me with my bags. The room itself, however, quickly changed my attitude. It is modern and comfortable but with enough quirks in the layout and furnishings to remind visitors that they are in an old building. The staff at the desk and the little bar were helpful and friendly, and the young lady serving breakfast could not have been nicer. Despite some reservations about the neighborhood, I would gladly stay here again.
