lots of stairs to reach just one bathroom and it is not clean most of the times without cooling system


The location couldn't be better and the woman that runs the place is very kind and welcoming. Rooms are bare-bones but fine. Problems: it's on the third floor with no elevator, so luggage is a struggle; the staff doesn't speak much English (although we managed to communicate okay); there's only one bathroom (single shower, single toilet) for the whole place; there's no air conditioning or fans, and it was unbearably hot. The owner is really sweet but I probably wouldn't stay here again.


The Albergo is placed very close to the train station, what makes it very noisy at night. Prepare to some serious stair climbing (beware the luggage you are carrying and its size). The Albergo is on the third floor of a very old looking building with no lift. WIFI worked only sometimes, half of the time. Security did not exist at all. All the room keys were always available for anyone to grab. Staff will not keep your luggage meaning 6 € per piece for 5 hours at SMN Train Station.


It's exactly what everyone travelling with someone special needs, close to the train station, clean and tidy and a very nice owner. Cheap, however, it has everything you need, a bed and a bathroom. Would recommend to everyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money.
