Once you get to the hotel, it is very convenient to all the sights and train station and restaurants. The staffs are so friendly. The breakfast is excellent. The room is clean. Since I had some bugs issues...

The hotel is quite well situated within walking distance of the city centre. Breakfast was good continental style with plenty of choices. No restaurant on site but plenty options near by. There are considerable road works in the vicinity that made locating the hotel by car difficult. Stayed 2 nights in a single room (room 104) which was rather small...

Although my room was quite small (single twin bed), it was clean and adequate. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Although the construction was still in progress, the hotel was quiet.

First impressions of La Fortezza were not great - new tram works behind high fence right in front of hotel (apparently way behind schedule) and carpet on stairs up to Reception needed cleaning/renewing.
