“Paying for location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

The location is great, but I wouldn't stay here again. The B&B is on the third floor and there's no lift. We stayed in room 5, which had several large water stains (some with mildew) on the ceiling - not a pretty sight. There was also a stain on one of the bed throws. On our first night, we barely slept thanks to all the mosquitoes in the room. The water pressure was weak and the hairdryer didn't work. Although free wifi was available, the signal was poor and fell out frequently. The breakfast was disappointing - croissants out of a packet, yoghurt, biscuits and jam. It is served in the room, but not before 8.30. When we told the owner we would be leaving early in the morning, she brought us our breakfast the night before. This included some bottled juices - unfortunately there was no bottle opener in the room. Finally, there was a kettle in the room, but after much searching we realised it could only be plugged into the socket that the fridge was already in. Overall, I'd say the place has potential, but there were too many small issues that added up to make it a disappointing stay.

Location just around a corner from Duomo. Great! Everything clean and tidy in a spacious room. Houskeeper very friendly and helpfull. Recomended us 2 great restaurants, one being just downstairs from our accommodation. Only thing - the breakfast could get better. It is served in your bedroom which is great, but not much to choose from.

As others have said, great location a stones throw from the Duomo and central to everything else. Rooms were cleaned, well kitted out and the lady running things was very nice and helpful. Only marked it down based on the fact I was woken one morning by a running shower from next door more than likely. Breakfast was ok, croissant, cappucuno and yoghurt, enough to get you going in the morning. Otherwise perfect and great value.

Stayed for 1 night for Bruce Springsteen concert, the B&B is right next to the Dome, which was great. We walked from the train station, and walked everywhere else too. Good size room, VERY clean, nice bathroom, comfy bed. Better than many hotels I stayed at. Service was great, nothing was too much trouble, printing our train tickets or storing our luggage, while we were sightseeing. The only negative was the noise levels, you could hear everything around you and rooms next door. However small price to pay considering the location. Will use again for sure.

This B&B is perfectly located. The tenants are really friendly. The rooms are new (recently renovated) and comfortable. It was a really nice stay!
