Liked: I stayed there for three days with my gf in a double room with private bathroom. The place is very clean and the location is perfect, near the train station and 10 min walking to the duomo.The lady who manages it was really gentle even after we have paid, thing hard to find nowadays. We also left the bagages after the checkout for couple hours.I absolutely recommend it.

elizabeth savage

15 April 2009 elizabeth would recommend this property

Liked: I stayed at Locanda Giovanna which is situated on the 3rd floor for 3 nights over the Easter weekend.The woman who ran it was very friendly and on Easter morning there was Easter cake and coffee in a flask left on the hall table for anyone to help themselves to.The room was adequate with washbasin,overlooking Via Faenza,and bed was comfortable with linen sheets, towels soap provided on asking at no extra.I spent peacful nights between midnight and 6ish when the rubbish gets taken, but was little noise otherwise, as it is not on a busy throughfare.The down side i would say is that there was only one shower and toilet combined so queing in morning seemed to be the norm.A separate toilet would have helped reduce this problem.Finally I couldn't be sure whether Hostel Bookers was promoted or not as there was nothing in the room I had, but there may have been info if I had looked for it.
