“This is a big lie!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011 via mobile

This hotel is anything but not nice! Everything said on the web is a lie!! No aircon - hot in October, shower almost doesn't give any water, no tea/coffee facilities, no iphone/ipod dock - no art in room - nothing!!! This is a 2star hotel worth €50 max! We are no curious about the breakfast, but believe it's gonna be dissapointment as well!!!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2011

When we arrived, there was no hot water for a shower. There was no option for a price without breakfast, and the breakfast was mediocre at best - the coffee not up to Italian standards at all, and no cheese - very unusual for a continental breakfast. The overall choice was pretty poor. My wife found a hair in the teapot... The website looks flashy (in fact, the best thing about the hotel is its website) but the finish (when you’re actually there) is actually quite cheap - not representative of what you’d expect at this price. No minibar, no air conditioning - and it got overbearingly warm - in May. There was only one bedside lamp, the lighting was odd, there was no wall-socket or lamp on my side of the bed (poorly thought-out design) and although we asked for a two-bed, the rooms we were offered were effectively two-bed rooms with a third bed squeezed in. Overall the hotel has the feel of a hastily converted apartment block from the 50’s. Internet is only available in the foyer - not in individual rooms - and I found it to be extremely slow and unreliable. Given that the hotel seems to target arty and/or tech-savvy clients (at least, the site has this vibe) - this seems a bit out of kilter. The shower has no curtains, so the bathrooms are of the type where everything gets wet.
Overall the service was courteous, but for €110 eur, we should have chanced a stay at the Sheraton for €100 without breakfast.
