Currently the best centro storico budget option, this 21-room novelty opened in 2004. It's in the heart of the action, on a colorful street of food shops and fruit and vegetable stalls. One of the things that keep prices low in this four-story hotel is the fact that there's no elevator. The style is cozy antique, with rotating exhibitions of modern paintings by local artists that lend a more contemporary touch. Bedrooms—which are on the small side—have cute cast-iron headboards; some rooms also have frescoed ceilings. There's air-conditioning and satellite TV, but no Internet access (though there are plenty of student-oriented Internet cafés in the vicinity).
