What people say

Its location was central to the train station, ideal for all site seeing. Hotel staff very helpful in obtaining any further info we required regarding train timetables, tour guides etc. Breakfast buffet was very lovely. It was very comfortable and the staff all spoke english which was good as we do not speak Italian. They welcomed our Golden Retriever dog as if it was there own, they even provided a dog bed and bowl in the room!.
