Artuà & Solferino

Family run, family friendly

A few blocks west, just south of Piazza Solferino, are the twin hotels Artuà & Solferino—20 rooms evenly split between the fourth floors of neighboring buildings (you check in at the reception for the "Solferino" half). This is a real family-run joint; the owner's kids leave toys scattered and hang around the breakfast room/lounge to watch cartoons or videos on the communal large screen TV. The rooms are simple—creamy wood floors, beat-up white lacquer modular furnishings, and small but nice new bathrooms—but the place is full of thoughtful extras, like high-speed Internet access for €3 a hour, and a sauna/hydromassage unit in Solferino. You can even save a few bucks by opting for a €90 to €100 "standard" room (smaller or noisier, with sloping roofs, older furnishings, no satellite TV channels, and no breakfast) instead of a €110 to €120 "comfort" double.

The price ranges

The price categories for hotels on this site are as follows:

Under €100
€€ €100–€200
€€€ Over €200

This reflects the lowest cost for a standard double room in low season.

Yes, that does leave a whole lot of wiggle room. Rates will be rather higher for, say, a "superior deluxe" room with a spectacular view at the height of high season. Still, we have to be able to compare somewhere—and using this metric does at least give you a relative sense of how the hotels compare to one another on price.

Since price ranges (€€–€€€) only muddy the issue, I will usually stick to a single designation for each hotel. The only time you will see a range is if a property offers more than one distinct category of lodging—not different types of rooms (many do that), but say a property that offiers, say, both private hotel rooms as well as hostel-like beds in a shared dormitory.
