We came for less than 24 hours to see the James Taylor concert at the nearby Teatro Archimboldi. Thanks to Trip Advisor, I found this lovely hotel. I emailed ahead to ensure it was as close to the venue as I thought, ask for dinner recommendations, etc. I am not sure which brother replied or which one met us at checkin, but they were fabulous. Communications wer perfect - via email, the phone, and in person.
About a 15 euro taxi from the main station (could have done public transport but not enough time), they met us at check-in, offered a coffee or beer, checked us in quickly, helped us book dinner (with complimentary transportation!!), arranged our morning breakfast box (since we had to leave earlier than the buffet began) - all w/i 10 min. And...I must say that they were very GENUINE in their offer to be helpful. We stayed in the "FOOD" room (all the rooms have names - kinda cute) which we found to be absolutely immaculate - Swiss standards even! By European standards, it was perfectly appointed - minimal but tasteful decor (loved the colorful tiles in the bathroom!), towels, even a small kitchen-type corner. We laughed at the "tv" - which looked like a wall mounted computer screen. But..we weren't there to watch tv - we never even turned it on.
We left at 6:30 am and one of the brothers was up early to make sure we didn't miss it! SO nice. :)
We didn't walk around much but to/from the restaurant and theater, it looked very friendly, safe, clean - a city-style suburb.
I would definitely recommend this place and would definitely stay again.
