With all the glowing reviews I have to say I was expecting better from this hotel, but was disappointed right from the start when I walked into the 1970s decorated lobby and was told that I'd have to pay an extra 7 euros a day to park in a lot 50 metres away. Unbelievable. We were then taken to our room which had been supposedly been upgraded from the 'standard' room booked. Well, if our room was 'better' than a standard room, I really wouldn't like to see the standard room. Small room overwhelmed by overpowering, mismatched decor and a television sitting ackwardly on a horrendous, poorly equipped mini-bar. The bathroom was nice though. The dining room where we had the 'pret-a-porter' dinner had a dusty, 1970s, Soviet style, plastic-flowered look, with a heater blasting behind us (had to ask for it to be turned off) and Frank Sinatra on an endless, endless loop. Second night's dinner was in the more upmarket 'Paolo Teverini' side where the ambience was better. Food in both places was good. Breakfast was ok, but heavy on the cake side and lacking on the savoury side. Since the weather was great for November, we decided to visit the very beautiful nearby 'Casentinesi' park instead of spending more money on the various spa treatments. Since 2 nights and 2 dinners came to over €500, we wouldn't have had enough to pay for them anyway. Instead we decided to try the pool on the roof. Tacky, plastic and terrible. They give you ridiculously oversized bathrobes and plastic slippers that you risk your life in as you walk up the very sad stairs and out into a FREEZING poolside before slipping perilously into the pool (which is warm!). You share the pool with a number of smooching couples, a couple of macho men who continuously hog the waterfall thing (very nice if you could get rid of the macho guys for a second) and the odd screaming 10-year old girl. The sauna really couldn't fit more than 2 comfortably. Even worse, after we decided we'd go for a run followed by a last dip on Sunday morning before breakfast, we found it CLOSED!! Seriously unbelievable. Wouldn't dream of going back.
