This hotel is a part of Accor chain, however, it is operated by the individual franchisee which makes it a cut above. It simply means that it is dedicated to excellent service and dedication to comfort and satisfaction of the guests.
The hotel is centrally located in the large City park, walking distance to the main piazza with fountains, cafes and shopping areas. It is walking distance to three very good restaurants Condor, Ristorante Canossa and Il Pozzo. These restaurants range from pizza, traditional regional cuisine and open air upscale dinning. This is the region that produces good Lambrusco wine, which is not to be missed. Reunite not included.
The management, within the last year or so, has updated and totally refurbished approximately 35 rooms. These rooms are well equipped, comfortable and ample in size. Some have small balconies overlooking the park. Original rooms are good, but not on the same level as updated rooms. Breakfast served in the hotel is very good and sometimes is included in the room price. The hotel has its own restaurant. When hotel has special promotions, on the web site, ...the room prices are so low, simply unbelievable. It pays to be a member of Accor or A-One Club. It is free to join.
The front desk service is friendly, accommodating and easily accessible. Complimentary, on site parking is available.
Some would say that Reggio is "easy going", sleepy town.....excellent for business, stop over or comfortable and inexpensive base for exploring surrounding towns and areas. This part of Italy, thanks to river Poe, is known as epicurean center of Italy. Modena, Parma, Bologna and Ferrara are reachable within 25 to 40 minutes by car. Florence, which is much more expensive, is within one hour by car. These town can be reached by slower, but free local roads or by expressways. The tolls on expressways in Italy are very expensive and the most recent change is that toll booths are without attendants.....so have plenty of change. Using credit cards to pay toll is possible, but not recommended.
In this area this a hotel to stay.
