“Not disappointing, but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

I spent one night at this hotel while being on a business trip. I see the hotel as quite old, the rooms and bathrooms need some sort of renovation for the prices offered. I could hear the noises from the next room very clearly. The room was clean and with air-conditioning, but it was too loud so I did not use it. The staff was friendly. Big parking and shopping mall to buy food is just a few meters. To me this was a positive thing, on the other hand, others may find it unpleasant.

Stayed here for a night on business. It's truly one of the most horrible hotels I've ever stayed in. The room has nothing going for it. The toilet is unbelievable--the paint was chipped on the walls..there wasn't even any toothpaste..the flush was broken.--I can go on and on!

The breakfast is a joke! I put eggs on my plate but they smelled bad so I didn't eat it. The front desk staff is ok but the restaurant staff are not. The facilities look old and I itched from the sheets..

Would not like to stay here again ever! and I would not recommend this place to travellers

Not a lot of choice in March in Piacenza. Hotel was fairly quiet and frankly staff didn't seem to be too bothered serving the few guest staying there. Avoid the hotel's restaurant and eat out across the road either at the Chinese or American restaurants. Hotel food is mediocre and expensive.

Stayed one night with a colleague during a recent business trip and it delivered all we required plus a little more. Helpful reception staff booked an excellent but remote restaurant for us and provided detailed directions so we got there easily. Comfortable and clean rooms with good bathrooms plus a more than adequate breakfast and efficient check in and out routine - what more do you need. Will happily stay again next time I need to be in the area.

Good hotel. Tasty breakfast. Internet was not included in the room. We wanted to stay there in our way from Florence to Milan, which served well. Clean room.

I have to stay in Piacenza quite frequently and was regretfully booked into the Idea Hotel. It is probably the worst hotel that I have ahd the misfortune to stay in. The rooms are tacky and tired, the restaurant resembles a school dining hall and the hotel sits above a supermarket.

Few days ago on the way to Tuscany i stayed in this Piacenza hotel with my fiancee and two friends. Hotel is just few min away from Piacenza Ovest highway exit.
We arrived with a car on Friday night around 9 PM, parking was still full, cant imagine how is it during the day. Parking is in front of hotel, shared with supermarket.
Room furniture was old, room size about 18 sq.m, bathroom small but clean, bed was comfy. Our room was facing road so it was a bit nosy.
Breakfast was good for this type of hotel. Our room rate was 84 eur with breakfast which was relatively good value.

We reserved one of top rated restaurants in town (#2 on tripadvisor) called Le Tre Ganasce. When we arrived (7 min with taxi), we didn't really like the very new type of furniture, menu without typical regional food which was what we were looking for. Taxi driver was also surprised how come we decided for this restaurant. He said all locals go to La Pireina...so did we at the end :)

La Pireina dates back in 1907, its family run which you can feel immediately when you enter. We didnt have the reservation and was greeted by owner and his chef on arrival. Restaurant was almost full so we were lucky to get of of the last tables. No tourists, only locals...thats how i like it. As typical local restaurant it was bit noisy. Food was very tasteful, all from the region, winelist was also mainly regional, mainly young wines. I love mature and full wines so we asked if they have something on the side. The owner brought wine from the region, year 2003. It was fantastic. Bill was 170 eur (2 bottles of wine).

All in all, hotel is good for overnight stay, but i warmly recommend La Pireina!

Room Tip: Room which do not face the main street
