Nice reception which was very clean, but, as they say in my part of the world, it was "all fur coat and nae knickers".......appropriate for the fashion capital of the world!
Checked in at 2pm after leaving bags at 8am and heading out for coffee. Ideal for access to the station for rail to Venice and Airport. Ideal for underground to the rest of the city which was only a few stops away.
Room on the 2nd floor was awful. Wet room was badly designed with water seeping into the hall way and room when the shower was used. Make sure you wear your shoes....or wellies...to do your hair or brush your teeth after a shower! Soaked socks can be a problem. Unfortunately the bad design resulted in damp around the room wall and a damp smell in the room. This damp smell went away with the AC on though. They obviously tried to fix the wall and the skirting board and added a new door....but no use as they fail to fix the cause of the problem.
Hotel mini safe was conveniently portable!
Toilet light was broken. Dealing with reception manager was not very pleasant. Fortunately, they sent another reception employee to fix it and, with the help of light from my trusty iphone, we fixed the bulb.
The thing that saved this place was the breakfast. Those girls deserved a pay rise. Their homemade breakfast was amazing. Great spread and delicious. Excellent.
The cleaner guy in the foyer works really hard too, you can watch him from the breakfast mezzanine level as you enjoy the breakfast.
Shame about the attitude of the reception manager.
