I went back and forth between a poor and OK rating for the Hotel de la Ville because there are some positives. The location for me was ideal; Vicenza is not the easiest place to get around, so the walking distance location to many of the city center spots and to the train station is good. Also, let me compliment one of the ladies at the hotel reception. She was accommodating, knowledgeable, patient and polite. Now, on to the restaurant, flat out – Don’t eat there. I ate dinner the first night, they insisted that I make a reservation, and then I sat in a dining room with 20-30 tables with three or four other people, in the mostly unoccupied, main dining room. The food was OK, but just OK, and the waiter was nice. At breakfast, maybe I committed an Italian sin, but I asked for a second cup of coffee. The waitress glowered at me and told me, “one minute”. Then, she went into the back, chatted for 5 minutes or so, and then came out with a tray and started bussing tables. Not anything like four start hotel service that I have ever seen. Also, my room falls short of that four stars promised at the hotel's main entrance. It is small, and the entire room had only two electric outlets, and one did not work. Today with travelers needing to recharge laptops, cell phones, and other devices, this is not convenient. I had to unplug the minibar in order to use my laptop. There is a very disturbing, peeling veneer, rotting wood condition next to the bathroom sink that frankly, makes me grimace. If I am in Vicenza again I will try another hotel.
