Great Hotel Experience!
I contacted the hotel in advance to arrange an airport shuttle for 4. The driver met us as we exited baggage claim with a sign. That took away much of the travel stress! (A huge que was at the taxi stand!) The room was a family room with a bunk bed. Very clean & beautiful. Not cramped! Great concierge! Checkig in & out processes were smooth. No unanticipated fees! Awesome breakfast- cappuccino, croissants, cheeses, juices- delicious. Great service. Easy walk throughout city. Nearby restaurants were delicious. Would definitely stay here again!!!

8/10 Very good

smart looking hotel. We were in the apartments which are a couple of blocks away - but actually nearer the city centre and were very good. There is no parking available despite the ambiguous reference online. The hotel will arrange a valet service, but it ideally should be booked in advance

Great location, but travel without a car
This hotel was in a great location. 10 minute walk from the train station and 5 mins from the main Piazza. There were ample of nearby dining options and it was in a safe area. There is no parking onsite and it is in a restricted traffic area so beware that you risk a fine if you accidentally drive in the 'wrong' way. Staff were a bit stand-offish but overall it was good value for money

8/10 Very good

We booked the apartment which is a short walk from the hotel. There were 3 of us so we booked here instead of the hotel. The beds were not good and it was clean but stark and cold. The woman assisting with check in was very helpful. There are many good restaurants close by. The location is excellent.

Very nice hotel. Centrally located (<15 mins from central station, <8 mins to Piazza Maggiore). Well appointed details, very comfortable, nice and professional staff. Would definitely stay there again.

The staff was wonderful. The room was clean and well appointed. Not very large, but that was not surprising. The only thing to be aware of is that the entrance is on a side street that is pedestrian only. If you need taxi service, you must walk to the main street. It is not far at all. Just be mindful when setting pickups and drop offs.
