Let's begin with the staff. Most (almost all) of the staff at this hotel act as though they no longer want a job. They are unfriendly, have an inability to smile, and are attempting to create a corporate feel, but have sadly failed in this.
I have stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions in the same week, and found that it is definitely worth paying slightly more to lodge in a 'Superior' room. It has a more modern feel, significantly more powerful air conditioning, a better bathroom, and (as should be standard in my opinion) has a kettle. However, I must note that in both rooms the soundproofing is excellent. Additionally, the WiFi worked well in both rooms with no additional charge. Considering the impersonal and corporate feel of the hotel, it is surprising that their TV channel selection is poor, and flat screen sets are only found in Superior rooms. Disappointingly, the card keys only worked occasionally, and I had to go up and down the stairs a few times to sort this out.
Overall, the hotel is sufficient, and the location is useful, with the train station, and a shuttle bus to the airport on the doorstep. Also on the positive side, Breakfast at NH Cavalieri is reasonably good, and I particularly enjoyed their panna cotta on a few occasions! Despite this, I wouldn't stay at the hotel again if I were able to find something else for a reasonable price in the area.
