Practically in the city center, near the train station. Great place to stay if you want to visit all the major city's sights. Modest, but clean. Staff very professional and easy-going. For be a 2 star rating hotel, it offers a really good breakfast with different choices and it's a shame when you think that some 3 stars hotels offer less than this one. Free wi-fi. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. I liked the vintage touch of the furnishings. Small bathroom with the shower too close to the toilet. A big trouble is the noise. Rooms are not that quiet and the noise stops late in the night and starts early in the morning. The soundproofing need to be improve. From the outside the place need a restoration, but at the end of the day it offers a nice stay and it can be a good choice for students, young couples and even for businessman.

The good thing about this little hotel is that it’s easy to find and close to the station and slightly removed from the more seedy part of the street, in fact it’s at the far end of the street. You need to ring the doorbell outside the main door and climb one flight of stairs. It was clean with a private shower room. Breakfast was included and offered cheese and ham as well as croissants and coffee - a step up from getting breakfast from a bar that doesn't usually offer anything savoury in the morning. The room was clean and the furniture was a little scuffed around the edges but on the whole, pleasantly decorated and comfortable. The terrace was nice to have breakfast on (when weather permitted). I suggest getting a window overlooking the courtyard for a more quiet option. Staff are friendly and helpful and there is a safe at reception to leave any valuables. Free wifi and TV in room. Good value for a 2 star hotel.

I really liked Hotel Monica. First of all, it's really well located. There are tons of cute shops all around and a really amazing pizzeria nearby. I arrived at night and the place was really well lit and easy to spot. The guy at the desk was really sweet, just an easy-to-relate-to good-natured guy. He was really welcoming as was the general vibe of the place. The breakfast room is painted in warm colors, but even more fun was sitting outside on the terrace. Unfortunately I forgot to take a pictures until my last night and so some of them are dark -- but the feeling of this place was not dark!

After the minor frustration of not being able to find this hotel (it turned out to be several blocks away from where the internet said it was), I was happy to arrive at this cozy little spot and meet the nice desk clerk (who had a very soothing bass voice, by the way). As you’d expect from a mid-range option, the amenities were pretty basic – but everything was nice and cute, including sweet furniture and charming archways. Considering the hotel’s size (only 14 rooms), there was a surprising amount of common space, including a little breakfast area, big wooden tables for hanging out or playing cards, and a sweet patio full of plants. This hotel isn’t quite in the center of the touristy stuff, which gives it more of a living-with-the-locals kind of feel. In fact, there’s an AMAZING pizzeria and brewery called Mostodolce just down the block, where young locals flock at night. And if you do want to get closer to the city center, it’s very easy to get to the central train station from the hotel.
