Very good experience. The rooms are large and beds very confortable. Same for bathrooms. The breakfast could be better.. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. The location is strategical; you are 10 min by feet from all the important classic monuments, museums and other attractions. One real complain: the photo on tripadvisor is not the hotel!

Great location, many sightseeing places - in a walking distance. Comfi beds, room is well equipped, clean. Very helpful and great staff with a smiles! Breakfast meal in a hotel restaurant. Boringly monotonous, the same every day. At first sight -rather good variety of food, dishes, however so little of love was added in it. As a result - absence of taste. So many sweet and floury products. Four star hotel has to be more ingenious in food preparation
