Watch out!!! NOT A HOTEL
It is a hostel, not a hotel and it's super old. The tilte pilled-off on the floor. Bathroom is shared, small and dirty. The drainer in the shower stall does not work.... disguisting! Everything in the room is very old. No AC. There is a tiny fan and not really efficiently working. Staf is friendly and it is located conveniently though

Property & service aren't as great as the location
I booked this room based purely on it's excellent location so was willing to overlook the following:there is no air conditioning-only one fan in our large room, no in room WIFI (wifi only available in the common area which was suffocatingly hot due to there being no A/C, no fridge in the room, no ice machine and a very shabby dirty looking bathroom. We stayed in room 4 which had a hole in the window patched with plexiglass & tape as well as a broken shutter and the shabby, dirty looking bathroom across the hall had a broken door as well. The elevator is only big enough for one person or your luggage but not both-you have to send your luggage up one piece at a time. Service wasn't great-we were made to feel that they just wanted our money, and speaking of money, we were asked to pay in cash via email confirmation prior to arrival and again at check in which I found very sketchy, unprofessional, and brazen.I felt pestered by the staff asking me to pay cash & pay in advance (needless to say I paid with credit card) and also felt pestered by the cleaning staff who hovered around outside of our room waiting for us to leave each day-so much so that we told them not to even bother cleaning on one of the days to get them to stop loitering in the hall outside of our room.

WiFi only in lobby. Bathroom too small....
Great location just next to the Duomo... WiFi only works in lobby and the corridor creaks loudly when someone walks by... the bathroom was too small. Tall or Big people in general wouldn’t fit in it. I am 6.2’ and there was a rod hitting my head in the shower stall which was barely my shoulder wide....

Worst “Hotel” ever - more like a terrible Hostel
Terrible “hotel”. More like a hostel. Even though we arrived after check in time, we was only able to get in as another guest let us in and explained I needed to read my emails as it’s self service, which was clear before hand. You can’t expect people to be reading emails on their holidays. The whole place is in need of a make over. The photos on hotel.com are very miss leading. It is not a true likeness. You can hear every footstep in the hall out side as the wooden floors so creaky and our door is thin and not even air tight, you can literally see light from outside through gaps. The state of our bathroom was unbelievable, it needs a full makeover. Was also unbelievably small. The curtains aren’t even wide enough to meet in the middle. People arriving back in the night at 3am shouting. I wasn’t expecting the best hotel or anything. But it was so shabby and non existent service. I’ve woken from my second night here and still haven’t had a member of staff even acknowledge I’m in their hotel.
