The hotel is very good, very nice furniture in the public places, beautiful gardens a huge design swimming pool.
I was on a business trip and booked this hotel to be relaxed for the meetings I had.
Good food in the restaurant, a good selection of wines on the card. A nice wellness centre. A very kind and helpful staff.
But we booked the wrong room. The room was the in contrast with all the rest. Even when it is a standard room. Small dark, nothing special concerning the furniture a bathroom with a very small shower, very difficult to get in because there is a handle outside so that you can't open one folding door completely. This is not a room for a 4 star hotel. Even when it is a standard room.
I visit a superior room and a luxury room and they are in harmony with the quality and price of the hotel.
Next time I will not book a standard room.

Checked in and were given a room type below the category we had paid for. Went down to front desk to explain and the lady at reception said that is all she had. The hotel was 10% full at most! it was a midweek stay in October. When I pushed and said you are completely booked? She rolled her eyes and opened her computer and then tried to upsell me another room. When I told he we were not willing to pay more, she bargained her price down by 15 bucks. At first saying there us nothing she can do and two minutes later we are bargaining for the room price. Very disappointing. Rooms were small, old furniture and outdated. You could hear everything, traffic, the restaurant downstairs and people walking the halls and walking in their room. Worst night of sleep. Only positive if this place was the breakfast and waitresses in the breakfast area, such nice and sweet staff. I would not recommend, go somewhere else.

I chose the EKK hotel because I had previously eaten dinner in the first incarnation of the restaurant two or three years ago. It was one of the best meals of my life -- but, alas the chef is gone and the replacement is just so-so.
The hotel itself does its best under the circumstances -- a remote (but very quiet and agreeable location, although not scenic), a converted facility that is now a hotel, and its insane decor in the bedroom. I can't imagine what the decorator was thinking when he/she put up a wall of fiery red wallpaper with huge, modernesque flowers -- roses?? It reminded me of the stage play from some years ago -- "The Little Shop of Horrors."
Except for this enormous mistake that prioritized what some would consider chic contemporary Italian design rather than a peaceful, restful decor, the hotel was pleasant enough. The staff could not have been more helpful. The included breakfast was abundant, especially for Italy. Be sure to have some Pecorino cheese and bread!
Parking abundant and free. No charge for (slow) Internet, but at least it worked.
All in all, the EKK seems like a hotel that had a grand vision for itself which has simply not materialized. You won't go wrong here plus you will have "fun" driving or taking cabs to somewhere where things are happening.
