Good budget option

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 28, 2012

Now known as Casa Vacanze Centrale, we stayed in his budget option for our trip in March 2012.

Conveniently located just 4/5 blocks off Via Papa Giovanni XXIII, this converted apartment-cum-B&B offers freedom for those wishing to have a good location with the use of a kitchen to keep the stay cheaper.

The B&B was clearly once an apartment which has been converted into one twin room with en suite facilities with a further twin and triple room having use of a shared shower room. All three rooms have use of the kitchen where breakfast items including cereal, milk, yoghurt, bread, tea and coffee can be found (although, I didn't find these to be well replenished during our stay).

The triple room benefits from access to the apartment's large balcony - which gives further options to those staying in that particular room.

During our stay we were originally located in the twin room with shared facilities (after being offered the choice of the twin or triple) but after three nights, we were offered (and accepted) transfer to the twin with en suite. Unfortunately, whilst having en suite facilities, it also adjoins the shared shower room which can be disturbing when fellow B&B guests are showering back-to-back at 02:00 and 03:00am (which was our experience for our last two nights)!!!!

Unique Quality: Your experience here will be very much influenced by your fellow guests. Our first three nights, when we were located in the twin room using shared facilities, were very pleasant and we were not really aware of our fellow guests, apart from our first night when we could vaguely here some voices from the adjoining room (which had en suite facilities).

Unfortunately, our fourth and fifth nights couldn't have been further from that experience; it was clear we had been joined by a group of young adults who, on their first night, sat drinking on the balcony - quite quietly until 02:00am when they decided to retire - each taking a shower in the shared facilities which were adjacent to our room. The following morning they were up at 07:30 making breakfast and having shouted conversations between the shared shower room and the kitchen - quickly rectified by a swift 'talking to'. Our last night had them chain-showering until 03:30!!!

I hope you will experience more considerate fellow guests if you choose this option - or better still, have a large group and take the whole 'apartment' for yourselves!

Directions: From Via Papa Giovanni XXIII, turn right at Porta Nuova along Via G Camozzi. Via Casalino is 4/5 blocks along on your right, the B&B located just a short distance down. The entrance to the apartment block has a small sign indicating it's presence.
