              8.8

              Great location near to all main city attractions, nice equipment of the hotel and the room, cleanliness.

              The breakfast has been very poor. In all other prospects the hotel can be considered as good value for money.

            • Couple
              7.0

              Very good location and nice rooms

              The bathroom bin wasn't emptied when we first entered in the room. Also no shower gel or shampoo in the bathroom.

            • Couple
              4.4

              close to city centre, but does not look like a hotel

              breakfast is really bad, did not provide enough food...does not worth for the money. I paid 140 euro per night but it is not at all worth.the fridge does not work at all.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Wonderful situation. Very nice room and panoramic bar.

              To go to the hotel with a car is really a mess

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              We loved this Hotel. It was the best Hotel for the price of any that we stayed in Italy. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. The room was clean, bright, well decorated and had good air conditioning. It had a good breakfast. The location was fantastic. It was near the Duomo. Originally we had booked the room for one night but it was so nice we stayed for three nights.

              9.2

              Great value for a comfortable hotel in a convenient location close to to the Duomo.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Location, clean rooms,more or less everything ok.

              Poor breakfast, beware of mosquitos.

            • Group of friends
              4.2

              The location was good, very close to duomo cathedral.

              Rooms were dirty, they did not even tidy the sheets in second day. Breakfast was very very poor, must be enriched.

            • Older travelers
              4.6

              Room very dusty. My wife likes to have extra sheets and pillow cases because she suffers from asthma....they charged us for them......

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              The staff seemed very hesitant, and uncomfortable in dealing with the public, no matter which country they were from

            • Couple
              7.8

              Everything in its place. Breakfast can be better but nothing to complain if u r in Italy and the coffee is good. Perfectly situtes, 200 meters to il Duomo. No Parking but the bring u the car from the parking if you choose the correct one! No free internet but if you buy it runs well and fast.

              The entrance doesn t look like for a hotel, reception is at 1st floor.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Central but relatively quiet location. Roof terrace bar and breakfast terrace

              breakfast only fair quality

            • Couple
              10.0

              Staff were lovely and helpful.There English was great considering our Italian was terrible. Great place....we stayed longer than anticipated as we enjoyed so much.Great location....close to shopping, tours and fabulous food.

              Bed was a bit hard. Noise from the street was a bit loud at night, but as we liked having the window open, that could have been assisted by closing it.

            • Couple
              6.2

              rooms were very nice but a bit too far outside anything exciting in the city. the staff was ok. I accidentally left a pair of expensive pants there and called the next morning and they had thrown them away already.
