“Very good value but a bit unfriendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

The hotel is in a great location, very near the station and easy to get into the centre of town. The room was a good size, everything was very new and clean. Very good value for money. Only downside was the staff were rather unfriendly. They didn't give us any information about the hotel, whether breakfast was included for example, or anything about the city. But if the price of the rooms remains as cheap I would definitely recommend it.

The hotel is not far from the station making it very easy to find. On the downside, our balcony faced into the narrow side-street where crowds of youths hung around outside the hostel, drinking and revving their scooters until very late into the night. The crowd did seem to evaporate at approximately midnight.

At first we were impressed by the cleanliness and size of the room, however, we woke up to thousands of ants scurrying around the floor. This resembled a scene from a 1980s horror film. Some items of food had to be thrown away, but worst of all, they had found their way into our bags and rucksacks which inevitably marked as some of our clothes.

A kind member of staff on the desk apologised, gave us a different room and offered us - one night's stay for free. He was very sympathetic and his customer service skills were impeccable. The replacement room was significantly smaller, and we had to share a double bed which was not ideal, however, as this night was to be free of charge, we pushed these thoughts out of our minds.

When I checked my bank account, it was clear that I had NOT received the refund promised.

When I queried the refund, the previous warm reception from the staff had evaporated. They didn't want to know. As by this time we had checked-out, I requested a phone-call back, this did not happen. I then called again where I was told to express my case via email.

The response from hotel Nologo to my email included the following:

'there is no possibility to refund you and it's also strange that someone of the staff could have told you that for an accident '

I would never stay there again...

I came to Hotel Nologo with my boyfriend for a weekend. I didnt know what to expect because the hotel was new and not many reviews were available. I must say, this is a great hotel for that price! I payed for double room around 50 euros. Room was clean and although there is not much furniture or decorations, it has a good atmosphere. Bathroom was clean and I was surprised by duvets on beds! - In most hotels, hostels, guesthouses they use only a thin blanket.
The music style of hotel makes it fresh. I recommend it especially for young people or young families. Staff was very friendly and I appreciate a lot that they had no problem with our earlier check-in and late check-out (we came about 2 hours earlier and the last day checked out 1 hour later)
Location is perfect! It is 5 minutes by walk from metro station and train station and in walking distance from city center. It takes 10 minutes to get to Piazza di Ferrari by walk!
GREAT STAY!
