“Worse than the photos showed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

This is definitely not a 3 star hotel. It is quite old but not dirty. The furniture inside the rooms is also old and it doesn't leave a good impression. Hotel is located not too far from the city centre if you go by car but otherwise it isn't the best choice for a city trip. Breakfast was also quite poor even though we were not hungry afterwards. Hotel has a private parking which we thought we would have to pay for but nobody asked us to do so.

I normally don't write reviews, but need to let people know my experience so they don't get caught. We booked this hotel as the description and photos on their website, combined with the 3 star rating. We were so disgusted with the dirty room and overall state of the hotel that we walked out. Can't believe this is called a hotel. Is more like a hostel. And a bad one at that.
Moved to IBIS 3 star for less and it was much better. A genuine 3 star.

The Auto Park Hotel was one of the worst stops on our Contiki Tour.

When I walked in our room, I didn’t know where to begin. The AC was on full blast and it was extremely loud! We didn’t know if we could sleep with it on so we ended up leaving it on while we left the hotel and opened the windows at night. There was no screen so we had a few bugs come in that night…

The room itself was alright in size – but nothing to call home about at all! The washrooms were awful here! Our Tour Manager actually gave us a demonstration on how we should walk into the shower. That’s pretty sad! The shower was extremely small. There was absolutely no space in the bathroom as well. We didn’t even have proper towels. We were give tiny body towels and dining room napkins as face cloths. I had never been so happy to have packed my own face cloth!

Breakfast was quite minimal here – the standard basics. We barely ate breakfast in any hotel in Italy.

The only good thing about this hotel was that it had decent Wi-Fi. Wouldn’t return and definitely would not recommend!

Stayed here as part of a contiki tour. We we warned about the generally poor quality of Italian hotels but after staying in Rome and Venice, this place was easily far far worse. Showers are about 50cm x 50cm and the rooms are basically the size of broom closets. Thermostat in all rooms makes a terrible sound so you can't sleep through it and they turn them off in the day so your room is never warm. Yuck!

Stayed in hotel for two days. The location is outside the center, but you can easily reach the center with the bus. It takes about 20 min. The breakfast was nothing special. Rooms were clean. The wifi worked only in the lobby. The staff was nice. OK for the prices but I'm not sure if I would stay there again.

Good if traveling by car (free parking). Not a very new hotel, but everything functions properly. If u dont have problems traveling to city by bus or cab, it is a good choice. Decent breakfast, capuccino served by very nice ladies.

Stayed one night in a triple room.. Hotel is not updated, rooms are not comfortable. Beds were "clean" but stained and uncomfortable. Only one outlet worked in our room. The windows were covered in bars and the entire facility was enclosed, which was great because we learned it wasn't a great neighborhood to be in at night. The rate was great, but I will probably pay a little extra for something more next time.

Room Tip: Try and stay on a low numbered floor, elevators break often and can't hold more the 4 people a t...
