Though the out-of-the-way location won’t win any awards for charm or convenience, this simple, modern property prides itself on being organic, from the eco-friendly lights to energy use from renewable sources; even the breakfast focuses on zero-mile foods. Guest room colors and décor are inspired by nature, from forests to glaciers, and come with air conditioning and mini-bar; bathrooms include showers only. There’s a small wellness area with sauna, relaxation room, and showers, but it costs 10 euros extra per hour to try it out.
Though there aren’t any must-see sights nearby, the area is good for traveling elsewhere in Italy or for getting around the city—besides the train station, there’s easy access to the metro, trams, and buses.
