Great hotel with excellent service
Posted Jan 8, 2016 on Hotels
We were in transit and decided to stay in Ancona for a night. The price was reasonable, considering it included breakfast. What a pleasant surprise we had at this hotel! Firstly, we got a very warm and friendly welcome - I admit it was off-season (early January, although I suspect they rely on business guests at this time of year), but the checkin process was most efficient and helpful. The room was excellent; the beds were firm and the temperature of the room was warm and cosy. Soundproofing was very good, as was the blackout (steel shutters on the windows).
There was an excellent breakfast served from 7 to 10am on a weekday. As well as the expected Italian sweet things, it also Included a cooked breakfast with everything available on a buffet basis. The breads were delicious, as were the croissants. Other impressive touches included home-made yoghurt and jams, and there was a selection of cereals and a range of milk.
We walked from the main station which was just under a mile and fairly straightforward to find. The hotel is situated between the city centre and the station, with the former being about a ten minute walk. There is free car parking available although we didn’t use this facility.
This was our first time at the NH hotel chain and we were extremely impressed. By co-incidence we stayed at another NH hotel the following night and were equally impressed (again, another superb breakfast with an early option before 7am).
