When I choose hotels I use Trip Advisor + I compare reviews with the ones on : www.venere.com This is a European booking site that has reviews from people AFTER they stay in the hotel which make them very reliable. I read the ones on both of your original choices and I still think I'd go with the Mariano Cubi location. It is difficult when you only have so few choices!! Good luck!
