                    B&b is nice, decorated with style. Our room was not very big but it was nicely furnished, and the bathroom was big with a massage shower. Park your car right in front of entrance, it is free of charge during the night, from 8 pm to 8,30 am. During the day parking price is 0,80 euro an hour. We did not know that so we made a mistake and paid 10 euros for parking during the first night on a nearby parking lot.

                    It is hard to find without a gps, no sign on the building, only on the doorbell.

                    Once we had found the place (perhaps a better map?) it proved to be clean, and the room very large and pleasant. The person on duty at our time of arrival (21.30) could have been a little more welcoming but the morning staff more than made up for it. Both spoke English and were helpful in arranging an airport transfer. Plenty of choice at breakfast.

                    Night Receptionist Alessandro was very nice with us and he gave us some directions and also helped us with our luggage as there was no functioning lift at the time of our stay.

                    I did not like the area and the big door downstairs. The entrance should look a little more decent. Also, when I asked to pay using the details of my card i.e. the ones that I had already given through booking it was as if I was asking for a big favour. I have travelled a lot and booked many times through booking however I have never encountered such a problem. In fact during my stay I had to pay in cash as well and I hope I won't be charged twice. This B&B needs to be a bit more oragnised. There were too many different people at the reception at different times and everytime they keep asking the same questions. They should communicate between themselves and not bother customers asking the same silly questions all the time.

                    The receptionist Alessandro was very nice with us.

                    As soon as we arrived we had a big shock as the main door of this B&B is just like a big garage door and the area is sort of a slum area. Another thing that I didn't like is that we were asked to pay before we even saw the room and they did not take our credit card details from the internet booking as other places usually do. They wanted to either swipe the card or cash. I didn't feel safe in this place.

                    It was within walking distance of the bus and train terminal and some good restaurants and the market. The staff helped us find tours and was very willing to help us with directions to various places. They also responded promptly to our requests.

                    The coffee served for breakfast was instant coffee! Not good. We had a little trouble with one of the door keys at first.

                    The B&B had large rooms and was very attractive once you got inside. Good internet service. Staff was very helpful. There were woderful restaurants very near by.

                    It was hard to find and not well signed. It is located in a fringe neighborhood.

                    The very friendly and helpful reception from the hotel people (Agata and Alessandro), the nice and tasty make of rooms and common premises, especially the nice paintings (painted copies, no reproductions!) on the walls.

                    The staff is very kindly and helpful. and the location of the hotel is very near to the train station, for me is very convenient. But the cleanliness of the B&B should increased. In a word, it worth the cheap price.

                    The reasonable price, good location, near bus, train station and centrum of the city. Equipment of the room was not so new, but for this price it's ok

                    Entrance to the hotel was closed. We waited 20 min outside. Person, who was on the reception didn't speak English

                    Close to railway station, staff were helpful and friendly.

                    Toilet was broken, room was very dark, only has a half metre width door which has a small window on it. Breakfast was poor. Internet only available in the lounge/reception.

                    Good b&b hotel for this money. Close to the train central station and not far from the airport. We didn't use public transport, because it was possible to walk all sightseeings in city center on foot. Clean room with an air-conditioner. Helpful staff. In whole all was ok.

                    View from our room was unattractive, hairdryer didn't work, but they provided new one on demand. Wireless internet wasn't available in the room (it can be used freely near reception).
