Excellent location close to all attractions. Very spacious. Well designed luxury rooms with attentive staff.
Breafast could be slightly better quality given price. Internet wi-fi was spotty.
Room, Location, Surroundings, Staff
The room was spacious, very well presented and comfortable. As the hotel has been open only since January 2009 everything is virtually brand new! The staff were all extremely helpful. The location of the hotel close to the Piazza della Repubblica couldn't be more convenient for exploring the city. My only caveat is that the breakfast menu could have been a little more extensive, but the quality was good. I would certainly recommend this hotel, which is good value for the price.
