Recent reviews

Fabulous 8.8 From 38 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
A great, affordable place to stay
We LOVED staying at the Merlini (3 nights). The couple who run it are extremely nice and helpful (as we checked out, they even offered my kids a brioche). It is 5-10 minutes walk from the Duomo, 5 mn from the train station. There are trattoria, fruit vendors, pasticerrias (for fresh breakfast items and sandwiches) on the street and the adjacent one. We could see the Duomo from our room. I felt totally safe leaving computers and some valuables in the room. You do need to walk up 4 flights of stairs, and the AC was not working in the room (but I didn't ask to get it fixed, it was fine without it). I'd definitely stay there again!

Very good 8.0
Well located small hotel, helpful owner
Overall, it was a good experience. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Absence of elevator can be a discomfort if you are carrying heavy luggage. The property is located on 3rd floor. Five minutes walk from SMN train station. One can walk to all tourist attractions from the hotel.

Great room, great manager, but on the 3th floor.
It was very good and the manager could not have nicer. There are 4 women in our 60s traveling and he carried all 8 of our bags in and got us situated.
