I booked this hotel in January, and pre-paid to get a good discount on a double room (for single occupancy), inclusive of breakfast. A delayed flight meant a late arrival, so I was apprehensive about the room issued to me. The room was a pleasant surprise. It was large, well furnished, with an espresso coffee machine and kettle. A large desk, with a decent chair meant I could work effectively with my computer connected to the free Wi-Fi.
The bathroom was very clean, with a mixer tap shower that work well. As others have commented, the hot water is more than sufficient for a long shower. However, one evening when running a bath for a hot soak to relieve aching muscles, the water ran warm fairly quickly. Adequate for one bath, but little to spare! This may be a problem for two sharing the room. It is important to leave the heater switch on all the time! The large flat screen TV was OK, but for me, it was of little importance. One improvement would be to improve the level of overhead lighting. The room can be rather dark in the very early mornings or late evenings.
The breakfast was good, better than many, with a selection of cooked, cold, cereals, sweet pastries and cakes. Good espresso coffee, and tea bags with teapots (all self service but using the latest equipment).
My room was clean, the bed was firm but comfortable, with a sheet and duvet. My room had a small balcony with two chairs - not that I had time to use them. Yes, the view was not attractive, but I have certainly seen worse. The hotel suited the purpose of my stay, with a large reception area with comfortable seating and a large screen TV.
The reception staff could be rather formal, but the restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. Would I stay at the Argento again? Yes, I would.
