    the hospitality is excellent. special thanks to Laura for her selfless attitude and for going out of her way to make one's stay memorable.

    The excellent staff helped us to find the very best food in all of Italy. It was in a run-down area but when we found it (only a few blocks from the b&b) we were delighted - 5 course meal was better than any other and reasonably priced. The room and service at the b&b was excellent. Breakfast was good, nice choices.

    This hotel does not have air conditioning, but we were ok with a fan at night and the room really didn't get terribly hot even in the daytime, even though the temperature outside in July was really hot.

    Convenient location, spacious room, though it is kind of noisy since it is facing the street. Quality and adequate breakfast. Helpful staff.

    The internet only works in the lobby.

    Buffet breakfast was good .

    Check out time was 13.30 pm on our reservation and the staff told us that we have to vacate the room by 10.30am the latest . we were not very happy

    Excellent location - within walking distance from the main city attractions. The hotel is located on a central street with many shops etc., however, it is relatively quiet at nights. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is fair. Excellent value for money!

    The website mentions a parking near the hotel at the price of 5.40 Euro per day. As a matter of fact, the parking they mention is a municipal parking, located not very close to the hotel, where the payment is per hour with no guarantee of finding a free parking lot. We recommend a large and relatively cheap open-air parking on 157, Monsignore Ventimiglia str. (10 minutes walk from the hotel).
