The community kitchen could be cleaner with better facilities.
This 'old' hotel is centrally located in the chic shopping district and the monuments are close by. While the hotel is old and very basic, it is clean with good hot water pressure. A few doors up is an excellent bakery and restaurant, Le Menthe , a block up the street on the corner is excellent.
Although Al Ponte is just out of the main city centre, the bus runs very frequently and you are in town in 15 minutes. I would definitely stay there again.
Excellent location - straight out of the tunnel from the train station, so no dragging the suitcase up stairs! Excellent modern room and bathroom. Very friendly staff. It was just a great place to come 'home' to after walking the coastal tracks all day. Make sure you book a table at 'Billy's' for dinner.
A great place to stay. Four bed dorm was spacious - no bunks. Bedside lamps and individual lock-up lockers; clean sheets and towels provided. Reception is always staffed. Laundry service available. Walking distance to Vatican and close to great restaurants. Excellent breakfast. Bathrooms need an upgrade but are still very clean.
