How this hotel received a 4* rating is beyond belief.
First impressions really do count.
The hotel is reminicent of tenement block from the ukraine and painted in a cold pale green/grey.
There is no sign above or outside the hotel (you enter through the very palatial gates of the 5* hotel next door)
A single halogen light aove the entrance greets you in the evening dusk - receptionist confirmed yes this is the hotel La Residenza.
Reception area does not contain any paraphanalia, leaflets, tourist information it is totally devoid of any indication you are in a 3* hotel - let alone 4*.(Although the receptionist will answer any questions you may have)
No bar or lounge facilities.
Breakfast very basic eaten in a atmosphere of "condemmed guests/prisoners".
The rooms are very clean and more than adequate (balcony furniture plastic garden table was absolutely filthy (put cover over it)
The grounds of the hotel ..are beautiful and maintained constantly by a multitude of staff (maybe this and the adjoining 5* hotel contributed to the current 4* rating).
In summary: The Hotel gives the impression it is the accomodation quarters for the staff/workers from the adjacent 5* hotel.
