I had to stay two nights for work reasons..but I would have checked out immediately if I could have... The rooms are sad looking, the mattress was the worst I've ever experienced...it was bumpy and I found it really hard to sleep.
Breakfast was a farce... everything was so badly organized.. and the young waiter on duty the first morning just looked so miserable to be there and his suit was far too big for him. I felt a little sorry for him but still I felt sorry to be there too.
The staff I met on the desk were lack lustre and one smug looking male receptionist was unhelpful and sarcastic. He made it obvious that he couldn't have given a damn and when we checked out my Italian husband expressed our displeasure but were met with a non-chalant response.
i can see that English people like this hotel and it is only a few minutes walk to the centre, which is useful. I didn't eat there at lunch or dinner time and so it wouldn't be fair to comment upon the quality of the restaurant.
Coffee came from a machine, which an increasing vice now in hotels..the one thing you used to be able to get in Italian hotels was a decent coffee but this is becoming a thing of the past. I couldn't drink mine and barely touched the breakfast 'fare' as it didn't look too fresh... very disappointing experience and most definitely wil not be returning...but 'he' won't care so I won't feel too bad!
