I would stay there again.

The staff were helpful, the rooms clean, the view of the Duomo amazing, breakfast included-that saves a few euro-, location closes enough to walk to all the sites!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is #24 in blue. Not red, which is a gelato stand.

Practical Hotel

The hotel is not easy to find the first time and the reception is not on the ground floor!!. In fact the first thing you notice when you walk in is an elevator that takes you to the reception. Might be common there, anyway is nothing one can't adjust to. The room was big, bathroom was also big and comfortable. The most important advantage of this hotel is that the most important attractions are within walking distance and the train station is just around 2 blocks away. Tip: There is a laundry mat right around the corner. I sent laundry to the hotel and they shrink one of my favorite blouses.
