I stayed in this hotel for 2 days on May 2012. The people are friendly, the hotel is nice and pretty and the price is really reasonable. The breakfast was also very tasty specially the croissants! The hotel has a nice terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast but it was a bit cold for that time of the year. There is also free WiFi available. The location is not right in the middle of the downtown (historic center) but bus #17 in front of the hotel will take you there in less than 10 minutes. if you want to take a cab at late night it is about 10 Euros. Also ,there are all kinds of shops available around the hotel and it is near the train station.
The owners Dominico and his wife were very friendly and helpful. I reserved a single bed hotel, but they gave me a large room with queen bed. Most of the rooms have private bathroom and everything was very clean.
The only thing that was a bit difficult for me was that the whole hotel is at a second floor and there is no elevator available. You should carry your suitcase up yourself. In my case, because I wan not able to carry it all the stairs up, I left it unattended downstairs and Mr Domenico kindly agreed to carry it up for me.
I recommend this hotel to people who are looking for a clean, clam and nice place with reasonable price.
