Reviewed 14 February 2017

You get what you pay for. The rooms were a nice size, the bathroom was small and the shower was tiny. Turned in the shower and my tucked elbow opened the curtain, 1/4 turn more and by butt turned off the water. Parking was public and off site but not inconvenient.
The bed was fine and we slept well.
That said, the staff was absolutely wonderful and breakfast included in our rate was very good.

Room Tip: No lift/elevator

We were there for two nights. very nice host, they've kept for us a parking place and cared about our needs. good location. The room was nice but very very small bathroom and no lift to carry up things. We did enjoy there.

After reading the reviews I was expecting something else than how this hotel really was. Everyone is saying the breakfast is great, but it was the worst breakfast we had during our 18-day roadtrip in Italy. Extremely dry bread, and pretty much just cake for breakfast. The juices wasn't even good! The food is also placed in the room with no lid, so not very sanitary..
The rooms were OK. Bathroom was horrible. The shower didn't work properly, it took me 15 minutes to wait for the water to get warm, and the flow was bad. The bathroom was also very small. I was expecting more than this for what it cost.
The girl working there was nice, and she helped us with what we needed. Also great location to the train station.
I would not book this hotel again. Definitely not worth the money.

Hello,
you came in a period of the year which is very expesive and I can assure you that in this town we are one of the less expensive.
We really didn't understand what you expected because we have swwt and savory things, and everything is really fresh, we make it by ourselves.
Thank you anyway for sharing

The central location, the very friendly staff, the hospitality and the affordable price make this a place to return to. When we add the surprising and original breakfast this is more than we expected. Room was clean, but could do with a little update. Only problem we had was the shower that was either hot or cold and had little power. This is a known issue for the 2nd floor they're working on.

Hello good evening.
Thank you so much for everything!
It's nice to know that you appreciated our job and what we do everyday to make your stay the best as we can.
The building is quite old, so that's why maybe we have problems sometimes with water, there are some little tricks to use it in a better way, but we're working on it thank you

Positives:
1. Good location. Not too far from the train station.
2. Very nice and friendly staff.
3. Good breakfast. Homemade cakes and pastries were really nice.
4. Room was decorated nicely and looked lovely.

Negatives:
1. The bed was actually comprised of 2 single beds joined together and it got really uncomfortable in the middle of the night when we realized the two beds have kind of separated causing a huge gap in the middle!
2. The shower wasn't working properly and the flow was very erratic.
3. No elevator so it can be really bothersome if you have heavy luggage!

Over all, an okayish experience. Mixed feelings about it!

Hi!
Thank you very much we appreciated a lot that you liked the staff, our homemade breakfast and the decoration of the room.
We're trying to solve the problem of the 2 single beds, but it's not so troublesome in all our rooms.
It's true we have no elevator but we write it everywhere so everyone can read it: we have just first and second floor and we always bring your luggage upstairs if you need it.
Than you very much anyway for your advices
