    Good

    We liked size of the room and the fact that the bed for our 4 Y.O. daughter was given for free. Breakfast was quite good.

    Well, for this level of price internet could be free of charge at least in the lobby.

    We liked the breakfast - great selection. Also outdoor area was preasant. Cleaning staff looked after our room very well. All staff were very courteous and helpful.

    Coaches were blocked when trying to approach the entance to the hotel causing excessive horn blowing by the drivers waking us from time to time.

    At the arrival the purser parked the car in the hotel-garage and delivered our luggage to our room. At the departure, the car was ready at the door, with the luggage in it. That was just great.

    Only the Foyer and the Receptionist fits in 4 Star Hotel. The rest needs an urgent upgrade for a 4 Star Hotel..

    The room I was in (328) has most of the wallpaper peeling off, especially the bathroom and the bathroom floor appeared to be all stained. The full choice of breakfast was never available at the same time, thus you had to wait for your favorite sweet/cake to have its turn to be brought out. The Hot Water was almost always warm and not hot, so one cannot get a decent cup (small for a tea cup) of tea. In a 3 star Hotel in Rome I had 2 hrs free internet because I booked through Booked.net, at a 4 Star Hotel I had to pay for even a few minutes use of the internet.

    The staff were friendly and accomodated us with car parking.

    The room wasn't clean. The balcony was a disappointment. The door to the balcony was next to impossible to open because it was so heavy. Light bulbs were missing. Poor shower. At 150 euro we would have expected more.
