I went to this hotel after a short visit of Switzerland, looking for a place near Malpensa airport but far enough from the chaos and not too much expensive.
Didn't make a reservation but simply checked in cause it's really easy to see it from the highway, less easy to reach by the streets... but the night receptionist helped me very well to find the way!
This hotel has a very big parking in the front, free of charge and with video surveillance, a large hall with pretty good wifi signal and a modern and fresh look.
The night receptionist was a bit cold (shy?) but i was really impressed by her perfect French speaking, hard to hear in this beautiful country! Havin back my passport in few minutes was appreciated too.
The room was large, with a nice bathroom (with shower) and a very big mirror, absolutely confortable the single bed, with extra pillow available in the wardrobe and a large desk with cable tv.
Didn't like the breakfast that much cause it was "cheap-american": horrible and raw bacon, fat frankfurters, awful scrambled eggs (eggs?? can you call them EGGS?), just a couple of fresh cakes and dull brioches.
The leaving was pretty funny... a small dark-skin girl asked if everything was ok, with a ready-made smile, looking like "every answer could be the right one, in every case i don't care".
What a pity, a modern place like this could give more and more to his guests, but everything is hidden behind the coldness of the staff, trained to smile with the teeth but not with the heart.
If you need a touch-and-go place just go there, but not if you miss home and need a temporary one...!
