We stayed for 6 days which was above average for typical stay at this place. Usually people go there for shopping or work for 2-3 days. Rooms are rather small... even Superior which is type of room we had. Superior on the highest 5th floor is very noisy at night so i presume that every room to the street is noisy because of traffic from wide street below - somehow this street is also the main route for many ambulances (Italy have probably the noisiest ambulance cars ever), typicaly 2-3 every evening. Rooms have very thin walls - you can literaly hear every word from the room next to you. This is a big disadvantage however one of the few.
Service is very good, perfect restaurant downstairs. Prices are not very high especially if you compare it with normal restaurant in the area. Pasta is around 10 Euro, main meal is around 15-20 Euro, bottle of wine is around 20 too, which is normal price around there so I recommend to at least try hotel restaurant.
Spa is small but very relaxing, guests get 2 hours free every day. Try it earlier in the day, you will be there alone, relaxed and you can go shopping later. Definitely strategy you want.
Superior room have free mineral water, free room service and 10% discount from restaurant. However room have almost none improvements beside this so it is probably not worth the extra money. (if you do not want your breakfast and dinner to your bed in room every day:)
At the end of our stay I was charged for all mineral water from minibar, no discount from restaurant and all service too. After compain from our side they of course made all these discounts and made a new bill but it was very unprofessional since I personally asked about all the services the same person who did the checkout bill. Be careful about this.
Still it was very decent stay worth the money.
