Stayed from June 17-20 (for Metaltown Music Festival and a peek at La Bella Principessa).
Superior room (#59 - 140 euros/night) was clean and funky, with a built-in mini-gym. The bathroom was larger than some whole rooms I have had elsewhere in Europe.
Location also ideal - city centre, across from farmer's market (plent of fresh fruit in June!) and surrounded by restaurants. Particularly enjoyed the Wasabi Japanese restaurant and coffee house.
Staff were extraordinary. When I asked Louise for a plate and knife for our room, she said that they did not have any behind the desk - but that she would go into the restaurant (which was closed) and get them for me. Carin was charming and endlessly patient - answered questions about everything from directions to the Metal Fest to what kinds of bus tickets had best value for money. And special thanks to John - as one small example of his efforts, not only did he jump out from behind the desk to push the elevator button when my hands were full, but offered to come up to my floor and unlock the room door for me!
Breakfast (included) was also very good - bacon, sausage, eggs, various breads/meats/cheeses/juices. All fresh and well prepared. When I wanted to bring a tray upstairs, they not only did not give me the usual hotel grief but found a set of salt and pepper shakers I could borrow!
Hotel has a Feng Shui rating and is funky/classy. Rooms have few right-angle corners and hallways are winding with unusual artwork.
All in all an exceptionally good experience. Recommended without reserations!
