Four stars? No way!

Average, dated business hotel, just to far away fom the city centre (20 minutes walk? Running maybe!), in an unatrractive neighbourhood. Parking is very expensive, rates go up excessively with the lenght of your car (average sedan: € 23 per day)! Breakfast doesn't offer value for money. AC and ventilation were (centrally controled) turned off ("normal procedure in October"), so with an outside temperature of 23 degree C it was very warm in the room. Windows couldn't be opened because of severe traffic noise, night and day. No bar, pool or normal 4****-facilities whatsoever; WiFi-connection € 10 per hour! What looked like a good offer turned out to be to high a price for the quality offered.

Fairly good local restaurant "Fraiese", 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Nothing much, but the only one in the neighbourhood.

Big disapointment...

The hotel was definitly not a 4 stars. Actually, you have to add a lot of fees to the initial price. Some general comments: - The wifi internet is charged (6 € for 5 hours) but didn't work in our room - The hotel car parking is very expensive (18 € / night) - There is no ironing board in the room, either in the hôtel. So they propose to iron themselves your shirts... Nice but they didn't warn you that you have to pay for it (almost 20 € for 4 shirts!) - The english level of the hotel staff is objectively bad, mostly for a supposed 4 stars hotel. - The general level of the service was pretty bad

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

- La "Taverna di Roberto": the best restaurant in town: very nice and very sweet place with excellent bolognan food, very nice a efficient service! (The best adress for us) - La "Scalinatella": the best pizzeria we have ever been; their pizzas are really awsome! The general menu and the service is very good too.
