We stayed in this hotel as a birthday present as two couples meeting for joint birthday. I had booked the Hotel via Thomas Cook, and was told it was reasonably central...that is a subject I am taking up with Thomas Cook themselves!
Well, having just read a previous review of early June (we were there 7-10th June), I have to agree with everything that is said. The taxi from termini was about 23/25 euro in Friday night rush hour, including the reverse and driving down one way street to get us there quicker!
Things started ok and receptionist, when she was on was helpful. However, catching tram or bus was difficult, on the Sunday we waited over 45 minutes, then decided to take tram....should have done that from first day.
We had been encouraged on our arrival to visit local cafe 10 mins away for late lunch owned by people and supplied with a discoiunt card....this never worked as it was evenings only! Mmmm, Free bottle of water and liqueur!
First night we were woken at 630 by banging as we were underneath b'fast terrace! Crash bang!....complainedand got new room. The B'fast was frankly a joke, as stated all packets and an incredibly surly hostess, who was doing us a favour . No drink facilities at all in room! in 2013!
We coped so as not too ruin long weekend, but it is too far away. Last morning was final straw with flights to get. I specifically ordered a White taxi, as fixed price to airport, for 8am to give plenty of time!. Checked again 745, they tried to move it 830, said no 810 would be ok...825 it arrived, Black people carrier 20 euros more expensive! We shall as we say - "re-negotiated"!, and agreed a lower price! No tip was given and to be fair, we got to airport on time...speed dial was off the counter! all in all, i can't help thinking this was deliberate rip off and that is how best to finish this review;very disappointed and with a feeling of being ripped off! Thomas Cook will be hearing more!
