En route to Switzerland from Milan, this proved to be a perfect spot to rest up from a long Autostrada drive. It’s right off the highway, easy to park and seemed pretty empty on my one night Sunday stay @ 99 euro, booked through Expedia in advance.(cheaper than staying just over the border in Switzerland).
I like the interior design, especially the guest room. Photo murals add a little personality, the shower was spacious, and storage was excellent. I wished for a bigger better chair to lounge in, and the bed seemed a little lightly made. Low and thin.
But it was quiet. About the only people I saw were an elderly bus tour group. The restaurant was closed, but the bar was doing a Sunday night happy hour for 8 euro. Lots of carbo bready appetizers, and a beer. It was a good deal, and drew about 20 locals. We all sat outdoors on their nice covered patio facing the parking lot. (see my picture)
Suffering from jet lag, I awoke at 5am and found there was no way in the entire huge hotel to get a cup of coffee, hot water, anything. Breakfast opened at 7am It was included and a good spread. But make plans if you want anything before 7am, such as a cup of coffee. They must have taken the teapots out of the rooms, at least mine did not have one.
Front desk staff was very professional and conscientious. Would definitely come back here.
