My husband and I are from Canada and stayed at Pensione Duca for 12 days in August 2013 while we participated in the World Master's Games. The hosting couple is very sweet and offer a lovely continental breakfast with fresh-baked pastries, fruit, cheese/meat slices and cappuccino! We were relieved to be able to use the laundry facilities on site for a very reasonably fee. The rooms are nicely decorated and well-kept. It was very hot during our stay (35-40 degrees C) and while the fan in our room was appreciated and got a work-out, air conditioning would have been nice. The hostel is near a "To-Bike" station, which has bikes you can rent with a special card you load with money. It is a very convenient way to get around the main city centre with stations scattered throughout. I would stay here again!

This hotel is right on #4 tram line with a stop less than a block away - which is good, as it is a bit out of the central area of town. The hotel owner is friendly, helpful and multilingual, and the hotel is spotlessly clean. I found my room a bit dated but as I was there really only to sleep, that wasn't a concern of mine at all - the fridge contained complementary beverages, which was a welcome surprise, and the room was a good size. All the staff were superlatively friendly. The breakfast buffet was superb - the sweets were baked on-site and the hot chocolate (hand-crafted from scratch by the owner) was delicious. There was fresh fruit available, as well as the usual assortment of meat/cheese/breads, and you could get scrambled eggs, too. The hotel has a restaurant - kind of a family style meal, as there isn't a menu per se - and my four course dinner was delicious and very reasonably priced. I loved feeling like part of a family, and as a solo female traveller, I felt completely welcome and safe.
