2/10 Poor

This is not a hotel, but a hostel. If you don't have money, don't waste what you have on this place.
Verified guest review

6/10 Good

Hotel isn't what it advertises. The breakfast is actually coupon you take up the road somewhere and get a free coffee. Also wifi is only in lobby not in the room like said. Otherwise it's a nice place and the staff are very helpful.

Gamble with rooms
Booked and paid for a family room 6 months in advance! We received a small room without window (small roof window which could not be opened). When we stayed at De Curtis 4 years ago we booked a double room which was cheaper but bigger with a huge terrace and a lovely bathroom. Will not book again with De Curtis.

Nice building, dodgy area
Since we did day trips every day, the location close to stations was good. But, the area is not nice to walk around at night. Hotel was really nice old building, but interior could use a renovation. Its was quiet though, so we had a good sleep. UNlike advertised, we did not have wi/fi in the room, only in the reception area. Receptionist was nice, but didnt speak English. Also toiletries had to be reminded to be given to us. Breakfast was a ticket to a cafe nearby. So basically one pastry and a drink.

nice pictures, but just about that
the neighborhood looks damgerous at first but it is not so actually, I didn't have any bad experience, hookers stnd on the corner though. personel didn't speak english and italian with that terrible southern accent impossible to understand. I had to pay on cash because the machine was broken, great so thats my problem now... I spent 2 nights there and none of them my room was cleaner nor tidied up. the place it is just not nice, I simply recommend you find some other place.

Good enough for 3 stars. Pretty close to airport.
I needed some hotel for one night and close to airport. Additional windows are installed to reduce (successful) the noise from AC. Pretty close to bars, and restaurants.

Close to the rail station
It is around 7 minutes walk from the rail station. Around 10 minutes from the main shopping street and 20 minutes from the main scenery. However, the way to walk back from the main location to hotel is quite dark, not feel so safe, just the feeling, we were fine. The smell in the wash room is not so good. Wifi not available at room, and only available at the receiption which make inconvenience because our room was not at the same floor.

10/10 Exceptional

amazing for the price.
rooms are amaizng. had a littel prolem with the the whole not speaking italian thing but got round that using google translate. roooms are absaloutly fantastic huge and really comfy (im 6" 8 so when i say huge i really mean it) people running the place couldnt be nicer and were a great help when ever we needed anything. only real negatives was that we were at the top floor ( 6 flights of stairs) which is a long way up with a big bag. and the breakfast wasnt really up to much either. apart from taht not a bad word to say about the place.
