Pleasant hotel with reasonable facilities. Kind and helpful reception staff will check on internet for you. Do be aware that it is approached by miserable and neglected stairs up 2 floors, so OK with small weekend cases. Lift cannot be used by hotel guests! Reasonably near main centre, convenient for SMN station and an excellent, cheap and large supermarket right near SMN square.

I want to start by saying that I do not understand the bad reviews of this hotel. First: it is a 2* hotel which means that there are only certain amenities, second: the price is very reasonable, and third: it is walking distance to all the sites.

The room was adequately sized and had great air conditioning. The bathroom, however, are extremely tiny. Breakfast was typically Italian with cake and bread. The hotel reception are extremely friendly (all 3 of them) as well as the cleaning lady.

I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

the room was tiny & stuffy. the bathroom was dirty. everything looked very old & dusty.
when we finally opened the window, we saw a wall 2-3 meters in front of us & a heap of garbage below.
we spent there 30 scary minutes, as we were trying to check out the reseptionist (extremely helpful & friendly by the way) was trying to make us feel better & offered us a promotion - a better room. well, it was as dirty & dusty as the previous one, so we left.
there's a lovely guest house 1 level below.

Room Tip: Just don't go there

If you see the website of GENESIO you could like the hotel, but please do not trust it.
It is very good presented BAD HOTEL. Only the location is good. The breakfast is nothing special but is enough (hot coffee, some bread, some pate and cake).
I have stayed for 2 days with my wife in double room and I could say Please do not spend your money there. I’m traveling a lot and have never felt in to such horrible place.
It is very noisy because it is on the road of ambulances, and the ambulances in Italy are extremely noisy. The room was very small and the bed was uncomfortable. I have written my name on the TV because of a lot of dust on it. The bathroom was extremely small. To take a shower you should be really very flexible.
It is too low value for money they ask.
