    The hotel is located outside the city in a commercial and industrial area and it is not possible to walk from the hotel to Mantova. Mantova could be reached only by car, taxi or public transport. The visitors of the hotel should be well informed for this.

    Small things in the room told us that hotel maintenance wasn't tip top, eg kid of kettle was broken. Only one free bottle of water which was not refilled everyday. Light over toilet bowl not working. Breakfast was quite poor with weird powdered eggs and not a large spread at all.

    Clean and modern, not too far from City centre by car. Easy to find. Dinner at hotel restaurant surprisingly ok

    This is not the hotel you expect looking for a 4 stars hotel
    • Leisure trip

    • Stayed 1 night

    The noise from a no ending telephone ring was not explained to us all through the stay after we have complained about it, and early morning trucks are moving under your window in a continuous way, with the backwards noise. The hotel stands on an industrial complex. Industrial zone way far from attractions and old city centre. You lift the toilet lid and it comes out in your hand.Floor is completely scratched and it shows, in a property that looks relatively new. Bathroom needs maintenance, too. This hotel has no English Channel station on TV. No CNN, BBC, none. They explained that it might be coming the first of the year. My question is how Booking.com and others consider this hotel a 4 stars hotel?

    The nice front desk lady tried to explain all sort of problems we have encountered. She was embarrassed, very embarrassed and so was the staff around her.

    Very nice, comfortable and spacious room, great bathroom, perfect beds! Friendly staff! Excellent breakfast and also very good dinner. Parking is convenient and safe in front of the house. From the hotel about 8 minutes drive to city center. When we spent all day in the old town we ordered a taxi to avoid the search for a parking space and the payment at the meter. The comfort of the modern and clean hotel was it worth to us not to stay in the city center.
