My husband and I and two close friends stayed here from 22nd to 25th of April. We were very happy with all aspects of this little hotel. We had had a long journey from west Wales arriving by bus. It was therefore a relief to find the hotel so conveniently situated from both the sights and the bus/railway station. The...

The Hotel is in a brilliant location 10 minutes walk from the Cathedral, Train Station and the main places you would want to be close to. The staff are very friendly and spoke a little English enough for us to get bye. The Hotel is very charmingly furnished and gives a lovely ambiance and it has a little bookshelf area...

From the booking throughout the stay and billing process, these folks are among the nicest we have had the pleasure to work with -- and we have worked with many. Our group consisted of 13 sometimes hard to please business travelers, and I was amazed at how many of them commented on how nice they found the lodgings, and ESPECIALLY...

Personal service. Accommodating staff. Convenient walking access to the old city. Just a tip: to get to the supermarket, as you leave Mario's turn right. At the next open road junction, turn right. Keep walking down that road (towards the train/bus station), cross a small sidestreet, and the supermarket is on your right after the (dreadful) Chinese restaurant. If you...

We first stayed at Mario's in 1984 (!) and again in the '90s, but not since new owners took over a few years ago.. We were pleased and pleasantly surprised that we enjoyed our stay even more so this time (Oct.2011). Leonardo and Federico, two of the family/owners, were most helpful with directions, advice and background on the city. The...

It's nice inside but there are better options with better price and location. Personnel was great and it saved the general impression. Breakfast is very basic, coffee terrible, I thought it should be better for such price.
