Quiet hotel next to trains and congress centre
Posted Sep 2, 2015
I stayed for 4 nights in August for a conference in the congress centre (less than 100m), in a surprisingly quiet room facing the busy junction and the station (which is 50m away). Location is ideal for day trips by train and for taking bus to/from airport. Città alta is 15min walking + funicular. Room and bathroom are spacious and clean. Helpful courteous English-speaking staff: they even put the cheese I bought in the kitchen's fridge.
On the not so good side: The room only has one high shelf and (plenty of) hangers, no drawers. The safe is minuscule, no space to keep a laptop (and maybe not even a tablet). The breakfast was just OK: not much variety, salty sausages, watery juices, and was not refilled (by 9ish the scrambled eggs were gone).
Overall, for the price I paid, positive experience and would stay again.
