I rated this average not because the hotel has only average facilities (it is better than that) but as an overall opinion.
Check-in was fine but the receptionist gave me the impression that he was reluctant to let me pay for the room straight away instead of at checkout.
The hotel decor is unusual: lots of marble & marble effect, with wood panelling.
The single room is small, but fine if you don't have much baggage. Bed very comfortable and there are international news channels on TV.
The designer seemed to think that electric controls on a wall panel would make the place seem very modern, but it was just fiddly. If it's dark, you can't see which button you're pressing, and who wants electric curtains on a small window anyway?!
Nearby is the small but perfectly formed Torrefazione Vercelli (opposite McDonalds). You can take a great coffee the Italian way here (standing room only!). The hotel breakfast is fine but nothing special.
Lastly, if you arrive by metro (Pagano), you can see a large sign on the side of a hotel about 5 minutes' walk away that just says "4 Star Hotel" - they neglected to write "Capitol" which would surely help most first time visitors arriving this way?
