“Great hotel in a beutiful city”
Reviewed January 23, 2011

Comfortable hotel located near the train station. Within walking distance to most sights which fits the economical profile. Rooms are quite unique and the several that we had as a group were all different, but nicely updated with modern finishes and bathrooms. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful, but a bit overwhelmed by large number of guests seeking attention. Breakfast was excellent with a large selection of European and western options. Parking is very limited, recommend calling ahead and reserving one of the spaces.

In my opinion not four star maybe a three star. Check-in was quick however the drive to an underground garage was an experience, as the grubby underground garage was over the road and once inside the door sealed and we were trapped for a few minutes, until we moved the car to open the doors again. This could be scary for solo female travellers. Rooms were very clean, if not a little spartan, the single door on the double robe was uninspiring, as was the artwork on the walls. Called down to order an extra pillow, but the call was never answered.
Breakfast was okay, nothing to shout home about. The view of the opposite (blue) building was awful.

At the end of our tour group, I stayed at Hotel Cascada for one night only since the last hotel (Astoria) was fully booked. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Cascada is a great hotel; clean room with immaculate white towels and sheets. The people at the front desk were friendly. The restaurant (Bolero) had great Spanish food (and a shout out to Fernando, the friendly Argentinian waiter who insisted we have our delicious paella vacuum packed - it was a good idea; we had it for lunch on the way to Milan). Their breakfast buffet was yummy too - you are given a piece of paper which you can tick off how you want your eggs made that morning.

I just wish they had firmer pillows - although they may have had one, I just didn't ask. But I'll definitely stay there again.

This hotel offers an exceptionally good value for the price in one of the most beautiful--and most visited--cities in Europe. The location is a pleasant walking distance (10 min.) from the main cultural attractions yet removed from the ongoing street noise--very important during the summertime/festival season. The entire property is immaculate, the rooms are a decent size and well appointed, the breakfast offerings were fresh and of good variety.

I felt that this hotel was a great find. As someone particularly sensitive to noise and cleanliness, I was very happy with my stay.

Me and my family stayed there for 3 nights and it was good. The room we had was big and had a good T.V. The location was great is was close to the train station and not far away from a nice lake. The food isnt that bad but it finishes quickly.The staff where helpfull and nice. The good thing is that there are a few fast food restaurant around such as Mcdonalds and burger king since the hotels restaurant is pretty expensive.

Its centrally located with walking distance from station. Good clean rooms but low amenities & service. Ideal for 1 or 2 nights, not long stay.

I stay in the hotel for 2 nights in mid August, with my wife and daughter of 14 years old. It is just a few minutes walk from the train station.

The room is much bigger than what I have expected in European standard. It is clean and comfortable. Staff is polite and helpful. The breakfast served in morning is good, bread, cheese, fruit, etc. Overall experience is good.

  • Liked — cleanliness, and the triple room is big and comfortable for my family.
  • Disliked — without free wifi
