Reviewed yesterday NEW

3-star is too much. Location is far from the center. No real restaurants in the neighborhood. Wifi is poor. Twice no refill of toilet paper and soap. Average hotel, nothing special besides the persons that serve breakfast. That is very good.

Professional and friendly. Great location we were able to walk to all the tourist hotspots and found restaurants close by. The staff were very helpful. Having a car park so close to the old city was fantastic.

Everything was excellent. Welcome water and juice in the lobby was nice. Only trouble was finding hotel, but there were a lot of road construction and we were on foot. After arriving we found the route to the hotel easy.

Good comfortable hotel for the price, friendly, helpful staff, good breakfast. Was only there one night, so cannot comment too much about other details. This was an overnight, caught the train to LaSpezia in the morning, Linda was very helpful in arranging my trip to the station. Thank you Linda😃

The hotel was clean and welcoming and the staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The hotel is in a good location and the beds were enormous and really extremely comfortable. Very good value for money and glad I stayed there. I would recommend the hotel and would certainly stay there again. No complaints at all.
