We stayed here at the start of the holidays and the end, on both occasions the staff were exceptionally friendly and the Reception staff , barman/waiter and Restaurant manager all spoke good English which helped as our Italian is very rudimentary.
We arrived before check in and on both occasions a room was available for us . Yes the room was basic with dreary furnishings and strange art, but the room could sleep 4, so ideal for our friends with 2 children and made it very budget conscious. The beds were firm and we slept well on both nights. The bathroom is a reasonable size with a bath and over head shower, bidet and toilet. We had a problem with the plugs in both room but that was overcome and for one night was not going to be a big issue .Yes the room air conditioning was not working but the staff explained it was not turned on yet. They quickly sent someone to unlock the windows for us, so problem solved and I suspect Italy was enjoying a bit of a spring heat wave.
Reception explained how we could use the trams to get to town, where to buy tickets and where to go once in town. We ate well at lunch time so we decided to forgo dinner but by 10.10 both of us felt peckish, fortunately the restaurant does not close until 10.30 so again problem solved. The food is a little expensive but very well cooked and prepared with care not some freezer to fryer affair. The bar area is modern and pleasant and drinks come with snacks so the 4 euro's for a small beer is a little more palatable. It is a popular hotel with coach parties so make sure you time going into the restaurant to avoid them if you need speedy service.They were all having a set meal and it looked lovely as it came out and seemed to be appreciated and the staff saw to it that they were served altogether as quickly as it was possible.
Car parking seems expensive in the gated car park at 10 euro's for 24hrs but there is a small free car park next to the hotel and plenty of road parking in front of the hotel.
For the price and the convenience of easy travel to the airport this was good value. I am not sure it is 4 star quality but Breakfast was included in the price and good with a wide choice on the buffet . My only reason for not giving it a "very good " for its type, was that the grounds look a little neglected and overgrown around the pool [however I suspect that may change when it is the allotted time to switch the air conditioning on, as Summer officially arrives] and the thin small bath towels which although clean could do with replacing. Yes we would stay here again for the convenience and the lovely staff.
