“Nice, but nothing more”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

Well, stayed for 2 nights.
Good location, 5 min walk from train station & city centre.
Good & clean rooms, very reasonable price.
Nice and polite personnel. They helped me at least 2 times, finding some strange things I needed urgently. :)

But.
Service so-so. No ironing room, iron hardly found after bigbig request.
They do not change towels (which I DO like, because I feel ok use the same one, but someone may not
Like)
School is nearby and children are noisy even through windows, be aware for working days, sleep is available only before lessons start :)

However if you need just a place to sleep - absolutely ok.

Stayed May 2014, traveled solo

This hotel is located on a very budy 3 lane road. It has a private courtyard but it shares this with a school whose windows were only 10 metres from our bedroom window . Although the school created no noise it felt like you had no privacy during the day unless you closed the blackout blinds, as there were no proper curtauns. when we arrived we opened our windows for fresh air only to be immeduately invaded by a swarm of mosquitoes which proceeded to keep us awake all night. On the subsequent days we had a choice of sleeping in an airless room or having the window open but walking around in the dark. Either way we could not avoid all the mosquitoes and were both being bitten around 40 times each night. The manager said it was probably our blood type that was at fault and offered no other solution except a free app. we asked for mosquito plug ins or a fan for the airless room but he said these things cannot be bought out of season in italy. We found them and purchased them ouselves the next day. The managers mother keeps the hotel very clean, but even though it is family run it feels like a chain hotel. No provsion is made in the courtyard for people to sit and enjoy the fresh air or have a ciggarette. The garden furniture that they do have is locked away behind a fence. I would never go back to this place.
