The location was Superb, and the staff was really friendly, I slept very well.
The breakfast was okay, not amazing.
Location was great, 6mins walk from SMN station and 6mins walk for the Duomo. Rooms were good; very clean and toiletries provided. Beds were comfortable and clean linen. Service was great; the guy at the reception desk was helpful and answered all our queries. He even prepared us a packed breakfast to takeaway since we were going on a day tour early in the morning. We were also allowed to leave our luggages at the hotel both before we checked in and after we checked out. For our last day, we managed to get the proper breakfast and it was a continental type of breakfast with great croissants and cake, apart from the usual bread, yoghurt and cereal. There was a coffee machine and a juice machine as well.
There was a problem with the flushing of one of the rooms, but he explained to us that it will be fixed when we leave. We had to open the flushing top and just pull a pipe to flush. Expected a change of room or a small compensation maybe? However it's the only 'bad' thing I have to say.
The price vs location is great. The place is between the train station and downtown, 5-10 minutes walking to any of them. The hotel is simple but comfortable enough, the staff is very friendly. They kept our bags before check-in and after check-out. Did I mention the location is great? They don't have a 24-hour front desk, but you get the key for the door and the neighborhood is really safe.
Everything was very enjoyable.
The hosts are very nice, the hotel is easy to find and closed to many places
The water for shower is not enough hot
Location was perfect, it couldn’t have been more central. The owners were really nice and helpful. The room was a bit small however it was very clean and it had everything including a little fridge and hairdryer. It was a very pleasant experience! Thank you.
