Considering this was a 3* hotel, we expected more. The receptionist couldn't find our reservation. He was unfriendly. We couldn't get the air conditioning to work because he hadn't initiated it! Breakfast was awful. There was very little choice and we were there an hour before it ended. We were very unhappy with our stay..

Not the nicest hotel Only stayed due to closeness to Ferrari museum. Rooms dark and gloomy, no bathroom light, wifi kept dropping out, no English speaking channels on TV. Décor needing updated and brightened. Staff did not speak much English. Breakfast very poor. Little to choose from however, great coffee and free water from the mini bar in your room....

My daughter, who is a teenager was traveling alone and she felt very safe and so did I. On her first visit, she was given a room on...

Restaurant is not the very best one but an ok interior. food, on the other hand, was excellent. Rooms are beautiful and brand new looking. Walls may not be that thick, so if cops or emergency run by with sound on, you'll probably hear them as they were next door...

All in all, a good choice. Clean, hospitable and great staff. Our only complaint is that there was no wifi in the rooms or the breakfast room. We could only get connection in the lobby. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and had a great sense of humour. Location was a bit of a ways from the centre but...

The rooms would need some renovation but the overall experience was very good. Staff are very professional and helpufull, located near down town make it really easy to walk around and if it is raining the bus stop is just across the street. Negative side is that the A/C is kept off most of the time in the rooms, it...

Simple clean hotel, free parking garage, OK restaurant for Pizza etc. 15 minutes walk to city center using the quiet road behind the hotel. Friendly staff, that did their out most to understand our very limited Italian. Better than average breakfast buffet for Italian hotels in this class.

Not glamorous, and 20 minutes walk from the centre of town, but good value in an expensive town, clean and comfortable.

Donatello isn't fashionable by any standard - the whole interior feels to have been the same from 70s/early 80s - but apart from that, the hotel provides a completely ok stay at a very affordable price. The location is good, it takes about 10 mins by walking to the city centre and the staff is friendly as well. So I...
