When: April 2005

B&B with lots of character; great value for money; very good location. {3 stars}

We needed a triple room at very short notice (we booked 3 days in advance) and were given a suite with two bedrooms (1 double + 1 twin) and 1.5 bathrooms...all for 100 per night. The twin room even had frescoed ceilings!

The breakfasts were brought up to our room and quite plain (cornetti, orange juice and coffee), but decent. I found the location ideal (just inside the city walls, Porta Tufi), with close parking at a special discounted rate if you get your ticket stamped at the hotel (basically half-price).

The negatives were street noise, but I don't think there are many quiet streets in city center, and a leaky radiator, but we threw a towel down and that was that. The decor is also a bit dated, but I didn't care. All in all, I felt it a fantastic value for money.
