We stayed here for 4 nights in October. The location was perfect for our needs being just a stone's throw from the train station. We had room 126 which faced the internal courtyard. We booked through Expedia.com.au about 6 months before-hand and secured the room while on sale at a reduced-price (AUD$91 per night)
The Good things:
Location; super-close to the station and walking distance to everything else.
Extremely helpful and friendly 24/7 reception
Very reasonably-priced mini-bar
Never ran out of hot water
No street noise
Breakfast buffet; the best of our month-long stay in Italy.
Little balcony; which was excellent to string a clothes-line which is necessary on long trips.
Wi-fi worked perfectly in the room
The Not-so-Good things:
Shower was on the small side and the door didn't close properly
Courtyard view is nothing special but it meant we didn't get street noise
No kettle to make tea, but this is the norm in Europe.
No face-cloths, but again this is the norm in Europe.
The Bad things:
I'd return to this hotel in a flash. It was perfect for us.
