Nice Reception staff, and help with luggage on arrival. Tea/coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast OK, in subterranean room. Reasonable choice of cold cuts etc.

Only one point ( it still didn't spoil the holiday ) the mattress was incredibly hard !
The location was just perfect and both my requests ( high floor and room with a balcony ) had been given to us on check-in

Location and views were incredible. Old building with a lot of character.

A little noisy overnight, but then you are close to the main piazza.
Great room, great breakfast (caters for gluten-free without fuss). Easy access to the historic Centre. Staff friendly and very helpful.

Central situation but very peaceful and quiet
February 22, 2015
We stayed 2 nights with our 2 children (in a suite, with a door separating bedroom from sofabed). Location is perfect as central and next to main square and food markets, with lots of restaurants and cafes around. Staff were helpful and friendly, called taxis for us. Buffet breakfast was our children's favourite, they even got a gift. We would recommend.

The Hotel is quite difficult to find but the staff couldn't have been more helpful guiding us in by phone. Very quiet location, and good breakfast. Lovely room facing the cathedral walls.

Room is a little small, but who spends their time in their with this city and that terrace. It was still clean and well appointed.
We sat and enjoyed a bottle of Borolo in the shadow of the Basilica at sunset - one of the most delightful experiences of my life! This place is so packed with amazing food and markets, go shopping for yourself and bring him a little nosh. With a bottle wine this experience can't be beat! We had excellent help from the staff, and had and amazing meal at Pappagallo - if you love food, you must go there!

At times the staff did not seem able to keep up with the needs of the number of guests - delay in rooms being ready for us and several others when we arrived, breakfast selections not replenished when they ran out.
Excellent location, very helpful front desk staff, very comfortable bed, great shower, wonderful balcony, good breakfast .

Tobacco smell in the room was somewhat uncomfortable. I believe indoor smoking is prohibited in Italy, and I did not see anyone smoking inside the hotel. But the room has an ash tray, so smoking was expected? So many people smoked everywhere anyway, so it was one big downside of my travel in Italy anyway. Wi-fi was free of charge, but every device you use requires a sing-in with login / password that the hotel provides and one log-in is valid for three days. We had to call the front desk several times for these reasons.
It is a tastefully decorated, updated boutique hotel. It is centrally located, so you can walk to many historic places and shopping districts (steps away from a local street market on Via Pescherie Vecchie). Taxi from the central train station is 5 to 10 Euro, from airport 20-25 Euro. All front desk staff speak English and were very cordial. I gave "good" because they forgot packing a breakfast bag on my departure day, after they had offered it voluntarily. Overall, a great experience and I'd stay there again.

Air con was difficult to understand, and we both woke up really hot on the first night and had to open the window, which meant we were woken early by the street cleaning machine!
Lovely location, right on the central square, but in a quiet street. Great staff, and we were even given a lovely pair of slippers!

There were several small issues concerning check-in, which never occurred anywhere else in Italy: the need to keep my passport for 3-4 hours for "registration," and irritation with the guest when hotel internet was not working properly. Most distressing was the use of an old scam: the need of a restaurant reservation for dinner because it was a Saturday night (not true), and sending me to a clear tourist trap -- for which the clerk also clearly was accustomed to a kick-back.
The hotel is very well located, just off the main square; the breakfast buffet is extremely good; and the room amenities are quite nice. In terms of value, the rating should be high, but my individual experience reflects a serious problem either with the hotel management or perhaps with the front desk personnel.

The main plus of the hotel is the excellence of its location just off the Piazza Maggiore and near major tourist attractions. The staff were very helpful with advice, arranging bookings etc

The bed. Hard. Uncomfortable. The size of the room. For a four star hotel, the room didn't fit much more than the double bed. The hotel offered to book a taxi at 25 euros + fees for waiting time. I chose to use an ariport shuttle @ 6 euros. It was a five minute walk from the hotel.
The location of the hotel can't be beat. It's steps away from the main piazza. The breakfast offered a lot of variety.

Unfortunately the road cleaner started at 0300 and was very noisy.
Location was fantastic

The location was perfect right in the city centre but on a very quiet street. The hotel was clean and comfortable small complimentary bottle of wine. Great balcony, the room was small but cosy. Breakfast was very nice.

I did not know what amenities were available. Did the lounge area have a bar to have a nightcap? No one told me on check in that breakfast was available at the lower level where the staff was unwelcoming.
Staff and location. I always travel by myself and I felt safe and secure as well as welcome at the hotel.

Getting to the room involved climbing up a few steps. Not a problem for me, but something to keep in mind.
Although it's a little hard to find with the GPS, the location is perfect. Just about everything is within walking distance. The staff was polite and helpful, and our room was spacious and interestingly decorated.
