5/5 Excellent

Everything ok except the windows need to be sound proof. You can hear people from outside when they talking and yelling. Over all good location, clean hotel and good stuff. Last thing internet is poor connection.

Property was great except for very small elevator

4/5 Good

Great location! Steps from the train, and very walkable distance to the market, Ponte Vecchia, the Duomo, and even the Michelangelo square (less than 3km away, which is a short walk when you're stopping at multiple places). The morning was a bit harsh on the first day, as it was a Monday and the garbage was collected very early (we were in a room facing the street). The other day it was very quiet. The room is spacious, and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom is also spacious, but the shower area is TINY. It was a struggle to shower, and I'm not a large person. There's no elevator, and you're on the second floor, so keep that in mind. It was worth it for us, as we could walk everywhere we wanted, and arrived from the airport by train even at 11pm at night.
