    Location

    The room was tiny. Only one chair and a television that was an old 19 inch one. The sink is located in the open by the bed so when I got ready to go to work my wife had to have a pillow over her head to sleep. Parking garage is $10 per night and very difficult to manuver your car in int.

    Location

    This hotel is the equivalent of a hostel, but far too pricey. The restaurant does not exist (closed). They have a single staff member at the front desk, but no others. The rooms are small (tiny) and are not similar to what is pictured with the fisheye lens they used on their website. A person would be better served by booking with a roadside motel. I expect they would not wake up with parasite bites on their bodies the next morning. Infested and inadequate. Go somewhere else. Booked.net let me down by listing this property.

    Superb

    The best thing about the La Pensione Hotel is the location. The hotel is situated in the heart of Little Italy and is surrounded by numerous cafes and restaurants. If you want to go to downtown it only takes 15 mins by foot or a short cab ride costs $6.00. The hotel itself is basic and the room that we had was modern but small. The hotel staff were very friendly and dealt with all requests in a prompt friendly manner. Overall the hotel was good, in a great location and reasonably priced.

    Staff was very helpful. Location is excellent, very central and therefore can be noisy. Rate is very reasonable for quality.

    There were some cobwebs in the room. Tv was old, but this is not a priority for me.

    Great value. We loved the location. The room was clean and spacious enough.

    Our room was located above the cafe, so it was loud at night and smelled like grease.

    Room was modern, contemporary, clean and lovely. Location wonderful - right in Little Italy. Staff was superb - knowledgeable and friendly.

    Parking was tough on Saturday because the hotel street was closed for a local art festival.
