cleanliness and location location
Actually what I liked most was the location of the hotel Breakfast is really poor
very quite after 5 hours racing at the autostrada
Good position (to close to the tangenziale) and accomodation in general The hotel is for business customers
The view from the breakfast room and terrace was fantastic. Friendly staff.
comfortable, convenient and helpful staff difficult to find
A good 4 star hotel with a very good restaurant and a friendly welcome. Room was very good with internet facilities. Very quite although near main roads.
The Sauna much to small and the fitness was too old and the breakfast nothing special !!!
The reception area was attractive and spacious. Restaurant provided good meals at fixed prices as well as a la carte. Room spacious and comfortable. Plenty of car parking spaces. Good WiFi. Area around hotel not attractive. Not easy to find when driving from north of Piacenza.
the comfort no
Very helpful staff and good breakfast.
Nice, modern, good value for money Entrance garage is dangerous (very steep, risk of car damage)
All staff polite and helpful No
rooms well appointed.modern very clean. restaurant not mentioned was very good.waiter was exceptionally competent pleasant and had agood knowledge of wine
it was a clean , well air conditioned room with a great bath room. the staff was very nice and correct . they showed us the way to a great pizzeria
New hotel totally renovated with small rooms but well equipped. Internet free, free parking and dedicated business area are key points for business travellers.
lovely large room,good location with parking. Would /Will definately stay again, staff very helpful. as no restaurant, apart from for breakfast, would be good if had tea /coffee making facilities in room.
Everyone was very professional but also very friendly and helpful.
The room looked very nice.The bathroom had everything including nice toilet paper. The people on reception were helpful. Could not work the Televison as there were no instructions. There was music playing in the hall way late at night which was too loud. The heating in the room was on and we could not switch it off ourselves so we had to go down & ask them to do it for us, it was at 24 degrees so we were very hot & the room smelt of glue.Not much room at bottom of bed to pass each other. Did not like curtains.
I love the hotel because it is close to where my grandparents were born, Brodo and Monte, and I have many family members in the area. I love the city and history of Piacenza. The beds are very hard.
Hotel looks bad from the outside, but inside, whoaouuu!!!! the deco is absolutely wonderful. It was the first night of our trip in Italy, and we felt in Italy straight away. Great style, nice receptionist. Great breakfast room with panoramic view over the city. It was a bit too expensive for a town like Piacenza in August
Central location. Nice views from the breakfast room / bar.
Hotel is fine,
Nice and luxury motel at the side of the autostrada. Excellent kitchen and very friedly staff.
very big room and bathroom, everything is new
Room was modern, clean and comfortable Breakfast was very bad
Good location for a traveler from north to south. A good parking. Well designed rooms. Very quite even near the highway. Good kitchen (One of the best caprese in Italy).
Very nice place to stay after long drive
Very nice room and facilities (including the jacuzzi). Practical for visiting Milano. Free internet and very good quality for the price.
Clean, nice large rooms. It is not 20mins from milan. More like one hour
perfect for stop-over, relaxing service & atmosphere, comfy room, sufficient breakfast nothing
Efficiency, car under closed awning next to room, spacious room, clean, spacious bathroom, good breakfast, convenient location for one-night business-visit. Safe due to gates and walled setting. The hotel offers a good inhouse-experience, there is nothing attractive in terms of outside environment surrounding the hotel. This is pure convenience.
The rooms were clean and very comfortable Need better restaurants in th area.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the room was very clean and neat. Small by U.S. standards, but pretty big by European ones. It was located right on one of the main squares. Because Cremona is a small town almost everything is within walking distance, but this hotel is really in the center of things. Being on the square had its advantages and disadvantages. We were there for one night - a Thursday night - and there was a rock concert in the square until 1200. They closed up pretty much right at 12 and it quieted down, but if you were trying to sleep before then it would have been difficult.
The breakfast wasn't very good. The coffee was stewed and the hot water had a scum on it!!!
very nice room, air conditioning worked really well, bed was comfortable, staff very helpful and pleasant no
Small hotel in the centre of Cremona. Excellent help in explaining the city. Secure parking a little away from the hotel, but good to find with directions from staff. Good hotel for acceprable price. Recommended!
The hotel has a great central location close to the main shopping area and the Cathedral The air con did not work so the room was very stuffy. The room was poorly soundproofed so quite noisy and it was not possible to use WIFI in the rooms
Very central. Good staff. Good breakfast. Clean but small room. Overall good value.
The staff are very friendly, helpful and always willing to accommodate guest requirements. We arrived early in the day and there was no problem in re-allocating rooms to us. The location is fantastic, adjacent to local squares with restaurants, cafes and bars and right in the middle of the historic centre. Breakfast was good, typical European continental type and perhaps reflects the requirements of the clients; however they may wish to consider extending the breakfast range.
The staff was very nice and competent.
An outstanding place to stay ! Very helpful staff, good breakfast selection, clean and perfect central location.
The only signs on it say Holiday Inn! There is no way to know it is the Idea Hotel until you give up looking for it and decide to try the Holiday Inn. The man checking in right after us was Italian and had driven around for an hour and a half searching for it; he was furious. The receptionist said everyone complains about this. Seems like they could put up a temporary sign.
The food and service in the restaurant was was good .Our room was comfortable and well maintained. The fact that internet access was not provided free of charge.
Close to the Autostrada and the commercial businesses, a couple resturants nearby. A small shopping plaza is attached as well. Terrible ergonomics for the room door; you can easily injure your hand opening the door! Several areas in the walkways with 25mm ledges engineered perfectly to make you fall if unaware.
Staff very helpful, good sized room and facilities. Easy access to motorway and to town. Party going on in lobby area directly below our room until midnight - staff should not have booked anyone into this room. Next day staff very apologetic.
Triple room is big enough and spacious The room was very dusty and at the end of october the heating was still not turned on - very cold at night
Bad bathroom with old furniture and accessories
Excellent value for money. Receptionist very welcoming and helpful. Excellent breakfast
i was closed to a mall for spending some time and opposide to a steak house name of the hotel outside was holliday inn and we were relactant to enter thinking that we were in the wrong place
Spacious room. Good (fair) breakfast. There's a Toys"R"Us at ground level. The kids loved it :-)
room was too small
Good restaurant with local specialties and reasonably priced. Sky TV channels and easy parking.
The fact that our 2 children (- 12 years) could sleep in the same bedroom and pay nothing! We had an excellent stay for one night, as we were travelling to Abruzzo (Italy).
Nice hotel, very friendly and flexible personal. Only paid internet access, not extremely expensive but still not for free.
I was staying too short time to share my objective opinion.
The staff were very helpfull to myself and wife also several of the staff spoke english too which was a great help for us.The restraunt was excellent and the waiting staff were very informitive about their selection's of food and wine.We will return in the very near future. Only thing missing was tea/coffee making facility in our room,
I liked the fact that it was in the Center of Cremona, the room was spacious and you could feel very nice inside the hotel. To check how clean the rooms are before they give it to a client. It was a bit dusty.
The location of the Hotel,
Extremely friendly staff, helpful, hotel facilities and room are new and very nice. I would stay here again. Hotel staff gave poor recommendations for restaurants.
Very good located in the center of the town and quiet bedrooms. Probably Cremonas best hotel. Cleanliness could still be better. It is a pity that after building such a nice and modern hotel the owner do not maintain it perfectly. Limescale in the bathroom around the bathtub exceed the acceptable and carpets also have seen better times. Unfortunately there is no nice (continental down-)duvet but only a bed sheet and a woollen blanket.
Comfortable, friendly and central
the decor staff at front desk
The best part of this hotel is the location. Also, though cetnral, it's very quiet compared to other Cremona hotels.
The stay at this Hotel was wonderful.................the amenities were superb, the location was excellent and I will return again! Loretta Touzell
Good location in down town - you can visit on foot; parking available close to hotel which is necessary because of space limitation.Nice brakefast room.
It is in a great location for exploring the old part of Cremona. Even with the street construction, we were able to find parking (a bit of a challenge) and have a fairly easy access to the hotel. The staff were most helpful as needed. The hotel design is really unique!
Comfortable and clean Ground floor Room was a little noisy from pump for air-conditioning or possibly Water system pump.
Very practical as an overnight stop as close to motorway and interesting city. Quiet. Hard to find.
I liked the professional service and the value for money For a tourist driving a car, I found the hotel difficult to locate
Class hotel is located out side of Piacenza, Italy and is about 60 mins drive from Milan. It has its own open parking, nice clean rooms and polite staff speaking different languages. It is a hotel with persons travelling on cars, not for air travellers. There is one big difference, they are difficult to reach, their boards or directions are not very visible. The info available with them on the region is not much, specially on Milan that is just an hour away. They must improve their direction signs and add more info on Milan and other nearby attaractions.
Ideal location close to the motorway. The reception staff were excellant and even offerred to make us coffee. I felt sorry for the man on duty who did all he could so make our stay a success. Breakfast was good and they filled our flasks with hot water for our journey. Everything at the hotel and in the area is closed on a Sunday. We could not get any food or wine and finished up with a McDonald's. If you read the description of eating at this hotel one gets the opposite impression. Breakfast was good and they filled our flasks with hot water.
nice hotel for the business people, location is outside of Piacenza a little. Staff is very frendly, rooms are clean and nice. A little difficult to find
friendly, helpful staff difficult to find as it is hidden behind another building and the signage is poor.
Good parking and near to the autostrada, yet quiet Arrangement of seating in the restaurant, but this is a very minor point
Dinner was good The hotel is not a 4 star.The rooms are very small. The fitness equipment is old. They lost my reservation
nice hotel, clean and modern rooms, good breakfast My room was a little warm and i couldn't work the aircond.
The staff was wonderful! They were so gracious and accommodating - and they spoke english!! It was a bit out of the way.
Once found a gem of a place, helpful staff and good meals. Right by the autoroute and on the edge of a business park - that said, air-con and good double glazing meant that its situation wasn't a problem.
You get offered a real italian cooffe in your arrival and your departure.
This hotel is a tourists dream. Well situated,excellent breakfast, very personal friendly and helpful care.. Excellent dinning room.
Fantastic room, very nice staff, the adjacent restaurant offered superb food (would return just for the food), quiet. Very recommended for a 1 night stay on the way. location is a bit off. The free internet connection was not working on our 1 night stay.
Beautifully restored country mansion house - perfect in every respect. Excellent service, food and value for money. A bit far out in the sticks. My satellite navigator failed to find the correct motorway exit. We finally found the hotel more by luck than judgement.
Surprisingly beautiful building, faithfully restored, gives a great feeling and impression of italian buildings. Very comfortable and quiet surroundings since it's close to motorway. Great design and accessories make it interesting. Lovely staff make it welcoming- we took a dog and there was even a plate of biscuits for it in the room! Good restaurant with enjoyable local wine and proper italian food reasonably priced. I've stayed several times now and it has always been a pleasure. Nothing- all good
The room was very large and the bathroom was huge. Free internet was great. The hotel is not easy to find, but once we did we liked everything. The restaurant had great food. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Beautiful room, quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful. Resturant very good. None - just that nothing within walking distance and taxis arrive with 18euro already on clock as they come from Piacenza.
The room was huge, it was practically a suite (must've been an upgrade, because we paid for a double) None
Good parking facilities No kettle or tea making facilities
quiet, comfortable room. breakfast gave good selection
Everything-it´s quiet,stylish,nice organized,with excellent breakfast,cool car place... Yeah,the only tv-channel was porn chanell!!!
Had everything required for an overnight stay. Limited leisure options.
Parking next to the room above ground. Breakfast oké no internet connection
Good hotell for only sleeping, clean rooms and good service, close to high way.
Comfortable quiet room. Air conditioning. friendly and helpful staff. High standard of cleanliness. Good continental breakfast.
Large rooms, immaculately clean & modern. Good value Elevator small.
The design of the room and the hotel in general. Also the room was very clean. 1. The acces to the hotel is diffcult through the city of Piacenza, not via autostrada. 2. The breakfast could have more variety. 3. No food served at the hotel when we arrived at 10 o'clock at night.
Good location for passing by, very near the highway and also the rooms are new and welcoming The bathroom had a very strange disposal and it was flooded by a simple bath. The breakfast was very very poor, it ended at 10, we arrived at 9h30 and it had practicly nothing left!
Room cice and clean and reception staff helpful No restaurant for evening meals. No bar or meeting area. With an early start no breakfast provided although already paid for
The room was very nice and confortable. And well decorated. The breakfast was also great... A real good stop during our italian trip.
This hotel is tastefully styled. Rooms are well sized and clean. The continental breakfast is a treat and the freshly made Italian coffee is wonderful! Although the rooms are wonderful the hall ways are a bit tired looking in places, could do with the carpet being replaced. The air conditioning unit in the room is noisy but can be switched off easily. I still recommend this hotel.
Friendly staff. Good location. Excellent continental breakfast. Clean room. Parking on location.
Clean room, parking at site, friendly staff. The hotel is in the outskirts of Piacenza.
The cleanliness of the hotel, it was spotless and the helpfullness of the staff. Maybe a better room service (food) would be good.
The room was really big and the lighting was terrific. This is not what you usually experience in European hotels. There were two equally large closets, a safe and a refrigerator. The king size bed was so comfortable. There was also a balcony so you could get fresh air. There was no traffic noise. We did not use the Olympic-size pool, but it was there for 10 euros extra. Lots of parking. It was really hard to find. GPS was wrong (the hotel knows this) and there is only one sign, far from the hotel. It is ridiculous that there are not more signs.
The room was very spacious, quiet, clean, modern and had a balcony. The breakfast on the first day was great and included scrambled eggs and bacon. The staff were welcoming and helpful. However on the second day chaos reigned in the dining room and the kitchen !! We waited invain for the cooked food for 1and a half hours !There is a picture in the lift of a wonderful swimming pool which gives the impression of a facility in the hotel this is not the case All the sporting facilities listed in the hotel discription are next door and do not belong to The Cremona Palace. If you want to use these there is an extra cherge of 10 euros per day.plus hat and dressing gown which you must hire fro 2 euros. We booked this hotel because we all like a swim every day but did not want to spend the whole day there. So making the 12 euro extra charge unreasonable and including the details as part of the hotel is very misleading.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the available staff made my stay change from a mistake to one of pleasure. The location.
Friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms, good international breakfast, attended parking lot Temperature variations of the shower ;-)
The reception staff were extremely pleasant, in particular, the lady who greeted us on our arrival, the evening of 26th September 2009. The room was very comfortable and stylish. The bar was only open in the mornings!!!! It would be nice to get a drink when one came back after eating in the evenings.
I really appreciated the courtesy of the staff and the presence of the staff within the hotel compound.
The hotel was just great!!! I would recoimmend it to anyone as long as they had their own transportation around Cremona.
The hotel was perfect,the room was perfect,the breakfast was perfect!
The resort itself was quaint. Our room and bath were delightful. It was as good or better than we had anticipated. Not one thing.
This is a charming hotel with an excellent, innovative, restaurant serving local specialties. Worth a journey.
Nice settings although near highway and railway. Spacious room and bathroom. Good restaurant.
very friendly service buildings are not all attached, you must go outside to go to reception or to dinning room and breakfast
Warm and comfortable. Dinner was excellent and the serving staff excellent, but the meal was very overpriced!!! About £60 per head for 2 courses and coffee with a couple of glasses of house wine seems rather expensive to us. Also, our room was separate from the main building and so we had to put coats on to go for dinner (although I believe there were very few, if any, other guests)
The food was superb, staff very pleasant and baby-friendly Location not great (but ideal place to relax and break a car journey)
Architecture and decoration, quietness, truly excellent restaurant, very spacious room A bit remote from everyhting, no extra blanket in room, air conditioning and internet connection a bit tricky, with a small extra touch of decoration on the walls, it would be a top class hotel.
