My husband and stayed at the Hotel Dante in August this year.
Arrival/Check in – this process was quite quick as we were the only people checking in and the front desk was quite. The lady at the desk was quite friendly. Reception area looks modern and was clean.
Hotel room – was fair in size but I did not like the carpets in the room. They looked old and not very clean. The room itself also was quite dated and the furniture was quite old as well. No mirrors in the room. You had to go to the bathroom if you needed to use the mirror or you could use the one by the entrance of the room. The bathroom looked like it was recently redone and was more modern. The bed felt really old and was not comfortable. You could feel the springs in the mattress.
The cleanness of the room was something that needs serious attention. We found our room was not very clean both the bedroom and bathroom. Glasses were in the sanitized bags but when we took them out they were absolutely dirty. We had to call to get them replaced.
Breakfast was included and was ok. If you go down a little bit later but still within breakfast hours some of the items on the hot meals section were finished. Different items were kept very close to each other and we found on many occasions that the items would be mixed due to this.(Eggs, mushrooms, beans, ham) Not very appetising! The lady managing the breakfast area was fast, efficient and very friendly. Area was quite small and you have to sit close to other guests due the space of the room. You can choose to have breakfast delivered to your room at no additional cost which is a nice option if you don’t feel like dining with other guests.
Location- It is a bit of a walk to the main attractions.
The lobby and bar area was always clean and the staff very friendly. Drinks were also reasonably priced and it is a nice break after a day out.
Overall I think this hotel is ok but certainly not at a 4 star standard.
