OK for an overnight
Posted Apr 13, 2014 on Hotels
Not quite what I expected, but turned out OK. My first mistake was somewhere along the way missing that we needed to contact the hotel ahead of time, BOTH to arrange for the airport shuttle (I think we got taken for a 20 Euro cab ride) AND so there's someone there to let you in. When we first arrived, the place was locked up. The stair/ and hallway lighting was also a bit lacking - especially at night. Now for the plus side. The proprietor showed up a couple of minutes after we arrived, so no big deal, and once there, was very helpful directing us to food, ATM, and an optical shop (my glasses needed repair) all within a short walk. He also has an arrangement with a local restaurant for shuttle services - turned out to be an easy, decent, dinner at a reasonable price He was also very helpful getting our 5 a.m. shuttle to MXP arranged. So, all in all, it filled our needs with no standout features or negatives.
