Hotel is nice, stayed 1 night for business meeting, when you book the and pay for the wifi through their conference package, what they don't tell you is that, it's only valid from the start and finishing time of the meeting. What a con!
If you're vegetarian, the option they had was gnocchi in cheese sauce, found the sauce was too strong, had to order chips to compensate. Would be nice if they had a tomato based sauce with spices or some other flavourings.
We had something leaving for the train, asked at reception whats the best way to get there, they said taxi, they didn't even say they have a free shuttle bus to take them to the station.
That was very bad.
