Excellent location. A few steps to the duomo. Not all staff were knowledgeable nor helpful. Elevator was so tiny and so slow. Rooms are ok in size, bathrooms seem small. Walking distance to the market, shopping and restaurants.

We loved the location of this hotel. Couldn't wish for a more central spot. Everyone at reception is so helpful and our breakfast server remembered our needs everyday. Breakfasts were delicious and you could eat on the patio adjoins the beautiful plaza.
