We arrived without a reservation and were happy to take the room offered, pricey for what it was - an unmodernised room facing the square as we needed somewhere to stay. Clean and functional, but no English speaking channels on TV. A four star hotel should offer at least a news channel. It was a very hot evening and The air conditioning was not working, it was eventually started by the night porter, but only had one level of output - very high and horrendous noisy. Totally unacceptable so had to endure very noisy Italians drinking in the square below, with windows open. Also problems with Internet, unable to connect and told whole hotel has problems sometime.
Breakfast ok, overlooking the garden and lake, coffee very good.
A hotel of this standard should do better for their guests.
