We just finished our four night stay in the Liston room.
ROOM: Very clean, tastefully decorated although a bit stuffy as it is on the ground floor and there is not much natural light in the room. You do have your own private entrance though as you are on the ground floor. The room comes with a hair dryer and fridge. There is an air con/heater in the room that you can adjust to your preferred temperature. Toiletries are limited to an organic soap. It's very quiet and the bed is quite comfortable.
INTERNET: It does not work in the Liston room so you will have to either go up to the terrace or sit on the stairs where the signal is strong.
LOCATION: The B and B is located outside of the city center--3 km from the old city gate. Although you can catch many buses that go to the city center and the station from a bus stop close to the B and B, the schedule at the bus stop is not accurate and you may find yourself waiting for a bus for a long time. Coming back on the bus from the city center--there is only one bus--no. 92 that will take you somewhere along via. Scuderlando where you will then have to walk to the B and B.
It is of course possible to walk to the city center if you are feeling up to it--the walk, however, is not a scenic one as you must spend some time along an expressway.
BREAKFAST: Although it is called a B and B it is a bit misleading as the breakfast is of the prepackaged variety--we were told the products were organic however if that is important to you.
PROPRIETOR: Friendly and gave some helpful suggestions. Picked us up at the train station on our arrival day.
Although we had a good sleep and didn't mind the walk into the city center and back we would likely stay somewhere closer to the city center next time around.
