      • Couple

        Location within easy walking distance to Strada Nuova. Large room size. Free internet point provided as well as vending machine for drinks. Good water pressure in shower/bathroom.

        The room was dirty, with filthy floors and unwashed bed spread and unwashed couch cover. The mattress was of the cheapest most uncomfortable kind. The bathroom was tiny, with a dirty floor. The shower cubicle too small for most adults. The staff at reception desk were noisy, and the sound travelled easily into our room. Plumbing in bathroom 'gurgling' through the night. Turned out to be the most basic accomodation we had in Italy, but it was the most expensive or 6 places we stayed in.

      • Group of friends

        Good value for money. Very kind and attentive staff. Only few minutes walk from the main train station Piazza Principe and quite near from city center and old town.

        Large room, a good size for 3 people. Close to Stazione Principe and very quiet. Beautifully painted ceilings and free internet.

      • Family with children
        5.8

        The beds are basically fold up cots. There is a 4 floor hike up stairs, not so great with kids.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The location for us was ideal. Unusual rooms. Painted ceilings. Some character.

        Room was cold. No heating. On noisy road. Plumming very noisy when lavatories were used.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        We got some really good tips where to eat and what to see. Big room.

        The room seemed a little shabby.

      • Group of friends
        4.6

        Location

        I wish we were informed that one has to carry own luggage up to the third floor as no lift while the member of the staff kept looking at us doing it. Very dark room tho reasonably clean. Breakfast was ok tho nothing hot served. Though booked through the Booked.net had to pay when booking out. The attitude of the reception staff leaves lots of room for improvement. Do not stay if not fit enough to carry your luggage three flights of steps.

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        Location to train station.

        This is a four storey walk up hotel. No elevator. Bedsprings were poking through the mattress. If you opened the windows you could smell cooking odours from below.

      • Family with children
        4.2

        accomodating staff, value for money hotel, good for backpackers

        no elevator, place needs maintenance, available parking is not near as mentioned, one way street car will have difficulty passing through
