2.03km from Trattoria CA' DoiWe had a room reserved at La Piazzetta months ago. Our train was delayed in France and I texted our new arrival time to Piazzetta. This caused them to tell me we would arrive too late and find another place to stay GOODBYE! (La Piazzetta. Don’t bother booking there.) So we walked off the train, out the front of the Principe Station, followed around the right curve of the building and there, literally across the street (one minute walk maximum) was the Hotel Galata. It was a great, last minute emergency place to stay and here is why: the night clerk, Norwin Ty took us right in. I looked ahead of time and the normal room rate for a double was €79. Norwin looked at us, looked at the clock (it was now 23:00 and we’d be leaving about 8:00) and he said, “The rate is normally €79 but I will give it to you for... sixty.” Now that is a good employee with great service. He makes a great espresso by the way. The room was not at all fancy or luxurious. It did however have everything we need. WiFi, great plug situation for charging. Lots of space and clear counter tops for storage (not cluttered with cutesy foo-foo). The room was large, clean, the bathroom had soaps and hairdryer and many towels (your choice of soft or rough). There is a refrigerator , AC, TV. Simple breakfast in the morning. Great location for a stop-thru on the train. Look. It was late at night and he could have tried to rip off the tired travelers. But he didn’t. I rate honest value pretty high. Five stars. But it’s not fancy.
