Huge disappointment. Dogs barking all day and all night long - no exaggeration. Reception/concierge staff was hostile and aggressive after we voiced a complaint. The restaurant staff was nice, but the food was very disappointing considering the Michelin rating. We were served stale chips in the hotel bar.
The surrounding buildings, not shown on the website are decrepit; not a location for a 5 star (?!) hotel.
The concierges don't even speak basic English and could not give us basic info such as how to get to Capri (?!). There is no business center, so bring your I-pad to get info the concierge can't manage to give.
We ordered a cab via concierge to pick up our rental car 8 kilometers away and the river charged us 50 Euros (!) and mentioned that this rate was pre-arranged with our hotel.
When we attempted to put our 100 Euro airport shuttle on our credit card the concierge then changed the rate to $130! This place is corrupt.
I hate giving bad reviews, but we spent a lot of money and expected a 5 star hotel with 5 star service to go with the price. We received neither.
Please also note the hotel's responses to negative reviews. Arrogant and insulting.
