  • Couple

    The location was perfect. Both proximity to Corso Umberto as well as the increadible view from the rooms and especially from the pool area.

    The staff were substandard for a 4 star hotel. They were not rude however were not skilled in customer service. The hotel itself was extremely run down and likly not a penny had gone into it for some time with the pool area being particularly dangerous including metal rusty spikes where vases used to be and an overflow with colapsed under me when I stood on it. The path down to the pool area was dirty and unmaintained. the bedrooms were functional and clean however the bathrooms were tiny and needed rennovating.
