very convenient, location is close to the main spots and best of all, great customer service! Staff was always available to us and gave us good recommendations to restaurants. The apartment was very clean and felt very safe.

We had three nights here and it was perfect. We called from the airport and they were waiting with the key. They also looked after our cases on the last day and ordered a taxi and so there was no issue with there being no reception. The apartment was immaculate, I can't fault it in any way apart from perhaps...

A very convenient, comfortable, refurbished and clean apartment.In close proximity to city centre and in a very good neighbourhood. A lot of attractions nearby and a wealth of services (CAFE, RESTAURANTS,OSTERIAS, PIZZAS, SHOPS, MUSEUMS etc.) Very lovely lodging. We will stay there again with great pleasure!

We stayed for 3 nights in an apartment. Well appointed, complete with a moka and ground coffee. Caffè e latte with panettone for breakfast each morning. Yum. Close to all the beautiful sites, plenty of bars and restaurants around too. About a 15 min walk from the train station. More than happy to recommend.

We (family of 8) stayed at Residenza Ariosto earlier this month in three of the apartments (1 studio and two 2 bed apartments) and were really pleased. Big beds, massive apartments, lots of towels / home comforts (kettle, hob, loo rolls, etc) and a great location too. Only thing to keep in mind is that where the floors are solid...

My husband and I, and our adult son, stayed for a week in this spacious, clean 3 bedroom apartment. We had no complaints and loved the proximity to major sites, train station and restaurants. We would absolutely stay here again.

The hotel was very clean and they cleaned the studio every three days. We felt like we were home. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a quiet and peaceful area. Everything was great. We strongly advise this great hotel.

All the staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient and communication was excellent. The 2 bed apartment was in an attractive and convenient area and it was spacious and very clean. But, and it's a big but, it's a shame that the apartment we stayed in was very noisy at night. The walls and ceiling are so thin that...

Originally I booked an apartment across the road (via Marsala 8) but for some reason it fell through. Instead I was given a two bedroom apartment in Residenzia Ariosto. The apartment was huge, with excellent facilities including a huge bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining and air conditioning though-out. The location is superb with three gelati stores on the same street, as...
