Score from 1132 reviews Good
the reception desk was extremely efficient and friendly; breakfast amazing with fresh seasonal fruit and home made pies; silent room at the back of the hotel despite being in a busy street
the illumination of the hotel in the street was quite dark
Everything is good, from room, bed, facilities, breakfast, location, wifi.
We stayed here after an expensive and disappointing 3 nights in Venice. The hotel was gorgeous, great value for money, free upgrade, lovely breakfast all included!
We needed a car parking space but the car park was full and weren't informed that we had to book one.
Piazza Maggiore is 20 minutes walking distance from the Hotel. The hotel is located close to the main train station. The family room was quite spacious. Breakfast was good.
Location, modern large open public spaces on ground floor, breakfast
My room was getting pretty well worn, there was a large bleach stain on the carpet, not something you would expect at this price level €165 per night. Getting into the onsite car park will test the best drivers!
Pefect location. Big room. Nice bed. Helpfull stuff.
We had a confortable night. Everything was alright - clean room, big enough, silent enough, despite the fact the hotel is so close to the railway station. Close to city center - 5 min.
Proximity to railway station; no street noise; good sized room; very comfortable bed and lovely large bathroom with bath. Excellent WiFi connection with 24hrs being free.
Unfortunately the on-site restaurant was closed.
Location and decor Superb selection of hot and cold breakfast buffet Superb restaurant facilities Quiet rooms with the garden view. Excellent shower and bath Clean rooms and bar snacks Reception staff very helpful
Nothing negative about this hotel as it made my stay very worthwhile.
Wireless quality was low
Position in front of train station, taxi rank, airport bus and dropping off garage for Europcar is excellent. Walking distance of approx 18 minutes to city centre Asinelli tower, pleasant walk under the arches! Personnel was polite and efficient and was willing to help to print boarding passes and give advice, our youngest child was welcomed with an information pack and a gift, nice touch. Breakfast was plentiful and good quality, plenty of fruit, cakes and hot food catering for vegetarians and not. Room service was prompt. Restaurant menu is varied. Good selection of snacks.
To leave after three days!
All is super!!!
The breakfast was outstanding!
Public areas Breakfast Staff Room Location
I was given a room where the shower was adapted for a wheelchair. The plastic curtain enclosed two sides and was much too close to the shower head for comfort. When I opened it water went all over the floor and I had to put towels down to go into the bathroom. I was only there one night and was going straight out or I'd have asked for a different room.
Nice and close to the train station. Walking distance to tourist attractions. Good breakfast. Reasonably priced.
Plumbing in bath/shower was hopeless. Rooms were a bit tired. Shower/bath was fairly clean but far from spotless. Not what you'd expect for $170 a night.
Service, staff, breakfast, station just in front, city center at 10 min walk
Terrible booking service and very poor wifi quality
Close to rail and bus.
Free WiFi-very-very slow. Sometimes very slow coffee service at breakfast. Limited choice of cheese and ham at breakfast. At incheck room was equipped for single use only.
Location, clean , comfortable mattress and pillows, newly renovated.staff very helpful with a smile.
Location next to railway station. Clean comfortable rooms. Very helpful staff on reception. Good choice at breakfast with efficient staff
Very poor snack menu in restaurant / bar. Pre-frozen, bland and uninteresting food.
Staff very good attention to guests needs Breakfast very good choices The location to the railway station
No power points that stay on to charge battery's when not in the room
Lovely hotel, perfect location, nice breakfast, very friendly and professional staff.
The bathroom had damp and it did smell quite strongly through out the whole room, pity that.
We stayed for 4 nights Oct, 2014. This hotel is very conveniently located directly across the street from the train station, and next to Porta Galliera and Via Dell'Indipendenza into the center of the old town. On our arrival the front desk staff were very accommodating; providing maps, directions, restaurant recommendations, and well as available hotel services. We were upgraded to a mini-suite room since we were staying for four nights. The included daily breakfast was wonderful, the room was very clean, and the free internet worked well. The room was very quite with double glass windows, and the A/C was quiet!
The hotel is beautiful and our room was amazing! Perfect location and the breakfast buffet was great, even for my vegan partner :) We had access to the wifi and the fitness gym as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Wi Fi complicated
It is too too expensive during fair time.
