Used chocolate paper in the safe! Unnesessary complicated access to Wi-Fi, had to contact Reception to get the procedure, and you had to pay, although a conference hotel. LScanty choices for breakfast, no fried eggs. Otherwise excellent! Short distance to the portals.

Good room even has a bit of a view. About 15 minutes stroll down to historic city centre - Piazza Maggiore. Balcony has no chairs. Air conditioning is not very cold and rather noisy but room with 2 large single beds arm chairs, table minibar and safe (no extra charge) is very comfortable and everything works well. Bathroom clean and... More

The best aspect of this hotel is its location. You are close to the train station and the main shopping and historical area. The hotel staff at the desk are not pleasant and wifi must be paid for. A business hotel should have free wifi and coffee available in rooms which this hotel does not have. The buffet breakfast is... More

It seems that the hotel will close down for the month but no one was slacking and did not realise. Hotel was pretty empty but still a nice breakfast was... More

Room was recently refurbished, fresh, roomy (we were upgraded) and comfortable. The reception staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. The Royal Hotel in comparison was... More

Our second visit to the Royal Carlton was all we hoped for. Our first visit two years ago was great but complicated by HEAVY snows which closed down the city. This time the weather was picture perrfect. A few light showers were no problem thanks to umbrellas provided by the hotel staff. The Junior Suites on the upper floors have... More
