“Extremely disappointed with the Hotel Blumen”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

Just returned from 3 night stay. There is no welcome or service at this hotel. The breakfasts have to be the worst ever experienced. Stale croissants and rolls, tinned fruit.The rooms were clean but outside hotel are rows of rubbish bins collected noisily at about 6 every morning. Air conditioning on request if you know to ask. no information about hotel or the city available in the rooms. 15min brisk walk from centre.TV in bedrrom only Italian channels, no sattelite tv. Not a 3 star hotel,but 4 star prices.Would never return.

Reviewed 23 June 2011

The service leaves quite a bit to wish for, even if at this rate you can't and shouldn't expect stellar behaviour from the reception, some common courtesy would be appreciated. As another guest already noted, the air conditioning is controlled from the front desk which sometimes means that you'll be either too cold or too warm. The nigh tech sollution for the windows might be perceived as a novelty, but they are indeed mostly impractical. When booking, ask for a room facing the courtyard since the street on the other side is quite busy and noisy.

Stayed at the Blumen for two nights the first week of July. The rooms are spacious but spartan, the furniture is robust and comfortable but not refined (relative to other three-star hotels in Italy). All in all, no major complaints---minor ones might be that the coffee is so-so, the yogurt becomes warm by 9am, only the front desk controls the air conditioning in each room, and opening the windows is impractical. If you're driving, this is a GREAT hotel---they have free parking out back. Best of all, the Osteria dei Cavalieri, located about 5 blocks from the Blumen, is quite possibly one of the best restaurants I've experienced in Italy, including the more pricey establishments where I was entertained by my Italian hosts. The restaurant is highly recommended, the hotel is comfortable and of good value.
