First we were convinced that we could walk from the train station to the hotel. It was pouring rain so we got a cab. A note about cabs...if you get them from the train station the price is lower than if you call them from the hotel. Once in the cab we realized that we probably wouldn't have been able to figure out how to get to the hotel. As most of the way was uphill it would have been a challenge toting the luggage we had.
This hotel was small and quaint. Pluses were that it was close to most everything and the price was excellent. Room was adequate. I like good reading lights and a clock; clock missing and lights dim. Bed was good, temperature comfortable.
Easy walking distance to many of the attractions. Gates to the old city are very close. Duomo an absolute must see!!
Breakfast which was included was quite good. Lots of choices. We had one dinner at the restaurant. No one raved about their choice; my sirloin was raw. Evidently that is how meat is served in that part of Italy. After sending it back, it returned medium rare. All in all dinner was pricey and only okay. Breakfast was so much better.
Front desk people were helpful but not overly so. Twice they had a longish conversation with one of the other people who worked there ignoring us. We thought that was curious.
Would we return? Depends on if we wanted to spend more money or if we were okay with the negatives to make up for the lower price.
