I recently stayed at this hotel with my cousin. its a 3 min walk from the tower, and 5 mins (in the other direction) from the main shops/ bars. so a V good location. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English, certainly better than my Italian.
We booked 2 rooms (4 nights) and our rooms shared a balcony at the back of the hotel (rooms 201/202). It was a sun trap in the afternoon and we could just about see the top of the tower. I dont think any other rooms had balconies. Certainly not at the front of the hotel/ facing the road. the basic facilities in the room were just that. . basic. BUt certainly nothing to complain about (for the price). Our rooms had a tv (all italian channels). The air con worked a treat. just 5 mins after turning it on the room was icy cold! Bathroom area was clean and fine.
In the rooms we did have a kettle but no cups or milk/ tea/coffee!! ( i suppose if you want a drinkl you have to ask for these).
Breakfast was ok, just ok. One cereal choice only was a little restrictive if you dont like Corn Flakes. sometimes there was fresh fruit also. toast and traditional italian cakes were the main offer. The coffee was lovely though.
Also from the breakfast area you could sit on the outside balcony and have a good view of the tower.
All in all for the price we paid we can have no complaints about this hotel. Though tbh i think our experience was made better by sharing a balcony.
