Tired looking entrance.
We were offered a room with loud noise from air conditiontiong or sth like that. Was on third floor. No view didn't expect but noise was unexpected.
We had that noise for 24hrs.
I had noise back home next our house which is undergoing new construction so I wanted to get away from that noise.
But here I am facing another loud noise for 24hrs constant base.
Breakfast a lot to desire. Pretty much basic but it is after all italy so you shouldn't expect too much on breakfast.
Yes lift is sooo old and warning for you don't press button before ur wife gets on, it doesn't have sensor, so you press then the door closes, your wife stuck in the middle.
Location! I was happy. It was pretty much close to everything. You can go on foot.
One more thing to mention, we took a taxi embarked next hotel to notarbartolo station, costed about 18. The meter ran so quick. There was no traffic but I am not sure this is usual price but i felt that the meter somehow rigged. It was less 5 mins riding.
For your information we took a bus from airport that costed 12.20 for 2 person. And the bus stop was just in front of Politeama from there to hotel about 5 mins or less on foot.
Ah, for comparision, from airport to center was from 35 euro depends on distance. Basically it is about 40 mins riding. So 18 euro for 5 mins riding to station is quite some, I'd say!
