WE stopped here because of the good Trip Advisor reviews and they were not wrong. The hotel is in a great location in the middle of a wonderful city. As previous reviewers have indicated this city is a great stopping location for a number of attractions.
The beds are comfortable, the room is beautifully furnished and our room overlooked the Duomo which rang its bells early in the morning to wake us. Fantastic.
We left the car out the front and didn't have to worry about parking. AS with previous reviewer, we did have problems trying to find the hotel as some of the streets close after a certain time. I would suggest - get yourselves familiar on a map of where you have to go and don't rely on GPS alone.
I would recommend travelers also visit the FANTASTIC Santa Guila Museum which is a 10 min walk from the Vittoria. This museum takes you from Prehistoric times through the Roman era (complete the ruins which compare to Rome) to the medieval to the Lombardy. A MUST SEE is the Nun's Chapel which rivals the Sistine Chapel; and the astounding array of medieaval art. We spent nearly 3 hours there and that wasn't enough.
