Stayed here for one night in February and due to the decent reviews and cheap price we decided to opt for locanda gallo.
The location was very good, 5 mins from duomo and many other sites. Many nice restaurants/bars nearby.
However, the place is hard to find, and we took about 15 mins of walking around the same road to find it. We then checked in by trying to speak to the receptionist/cleaner who couldnt speak English so ended up having to wait 10 mins for the English speaking colleague to help.
We then left our bags in the reception and were advised that they will be in the room when we return from being out. We then returned to our room at about 7PM to find our bags were not in the room and had to call someone (outside the hotel) to come and open the reception to let us get our bags, this took around half an hour but wasnt too much of a big deal.
The room was very basic, and had a very small 'window' which was covered with vents and looked out to the stairwell of the hotel. The room was NOTHING like the pictures shown. We were on the top floor room so maybe we were unlucky with the room we were given? Furthermore the bed didnt feel particularly clean and made us feel quite itchy. The shower and toilet was very small and the fridge/cupboards were untidy and smelly.
During the night, there was an intermittent buzzing sound going on every hour or so which meant we had to sleep listening to headphones and waking up every hour or so.
Only reason I have given 2 stars is due to the good price we paid but in future, I would undoubtedly pay more to stay somewhere more comfortable.
