we overnighted here between italy and flying home (usa). We wanted somewhere removed from the airport, and a bit nice. (if you're paying airport prices, then you might as well get something). It was a bit of a journey to get to the hotel via the tram, but it can be done. Note that if you're planning to get back to the airport via tram, then sort your tickets out while you're at the station, because there is no ticket window at the tram stop near the hotel. The ticket machines only take credit cards with chips in them, so your USA card won't work. Our outbound flight required us to be at the airport somewhat early, and we ended up taking a cab. It wasn't unreasonable, but it was far more than the tram.
The rooms are very nicely furnished, and the beds are quite comfortable. The bathroom is spacious and modern. The breakfast served was complete, and we were able to find things to eat there (everyone is lactose intolerant in my family). Hotel staff are very helpful. Several nice restaurants nearby.
Not sure if I'll stay again because of the location. But only for that reason. The rest was spot-on.
