“Pretty average!”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Stayed for 6 nights for a work trip. Okay for 1 or 2 nights, 6 is far too long! I was in room 718, single bed, claustrophobic kitsch decor. Colleagues were in better rooms, I think 718 is one of the worst so I would advise avoiding that one!

Bed and pillows are hard but not awful- ask for an extra pillow. Rooms are clean and there is a kettle with tea. The tea bags don't get replaced often enough and there's no coffee. The shower is fine and the bathroom quite big for such a small room.

Breakfast is okay- they seem to try to make it varied.

Wifi is a bit unreliable.

There's no real bar area to hang out in.

I recently stayed at hotel Lancaster for a business trip of 5 days. I went with several work mates. We all found that the breakfast was of very poor standard and decided to eat out every day following the first one.

The wi-fi coverage of the hotel was very poor during my stay. I have both a wi fi enabled phone and an ipod and neither of these could get wi fi coverage in my room. My work mates had similar issues. I was occasionally able to get wifi coverage if I stood directly below the router (on the 6th floor, I was staying on the 7th floor). I discussed this problem with the receptionists on two occasions but nothing was done to solve the issue. I believe the issue is a permanent one.

However, the bed was comfy, the room was clean. The hotel is very near the slightly shady area by the train station so be aware when booking.

My wife and I were in town for the World Master Games and tried this hotel. The staff was very helpful and would go out of their way to get you any information you might need. Breakfast was supprisingly great! Twice they made eggs to order for us plus offerd a wide selection of egg dishes, cold meats, juices, sweet rolls, and made to order coffe. The only sour note was the a/c could not quite keep up with the August heat. We would stay here again.

i stayed there some times, always business trips;
Good location (just 10min walk from central train station and 15min from via roma, heart of the town).
The internal environment and forniture is nice, somehow different from the standard business locations;
very original and worth to see the writings on stairs walls (do not take lift to read).
Breakfast (as it happens very freqently in italy) quite poor

good price for value

Just returned from a three night stay with my husband at Lancaster Hotel. Room was very clean with ample space. Bathroom large with toiletries (even night cream) Kettle and various herbal teas in room, although I must say that I missed finding coffee. Buffet was nicely prepared in a colourful room with cereal, yogurt, toast, eggs, ham and cheese and various croissants and cakes, jiuces, tea and coffee. You can have capuccino, espresso, americano, etc. Staff helpful. Although not exactly in city centre, with Tram number 4, you can reach the centre within a couple of minutes. Would recommend.

It was perfect for our 3 nights city break,
The Hotel Interior condition was in a very good state...& has very nice standard for a 3star Hotel. Rooms are well kept & very clean with spacious bathrooms...the street rooms might be a bit noisy for some..& the Hotel it`s sitiuated in a residensial area...breakfast was good as well....the normal cold cuts & continental...plus a good selections of sweets....
It`s either 10/15 mins walking to Porta Nuova Train station or Park Valentino near the river Poo....Also It is about 25 mins Walking from the city centre.. but then if you dont like walking tram stops are just outside the hotel....& in less then 8/9mins,6stops with tram number4 you will be in the city centre....

On the negative side:
What we didnt like is that altough we requested a non smoking room.... The Curtains had a strong smell of cigarettes on them....which we had to leave the window open 24/7 during our stay to keep the smell off.

Room Tip: If You hate traffic noise,ask for a room at the back... Although the Balconies or windows are all do...

This is a comfortable hotel near the station, rooms are mostly big, decor is very kitsch (unless you like purple walls or toy cars hanging off the cieling). Breakfast is mot nad if you are keen on buiscuits and cakes, no good if you want a full breakfast. Staff are very helpful
