Good value hotel in great location
Posted Mar 26, 2017
We are a couple in our early 60s who stayed at this hotel for 5 nights.
The location couldn't be better - it's one block back from the main thoroughfare of Corso Umberto, and the metro stop of Universita and bus stops. Being one block back means the worst of the traffic noise is cut off, helped by the good double glazing. It's also walking distance from the Alibus (airport) bus stop in the Port - about 10 mins. There are plenty of restaurants and bars close by as well and the area around Palazzo Reale and Via Toledo are easily reached on foot
The hotel inside is clean and modern; it must have been refurbished quite recently. Our room was large and had everything we needed, including a safe, A/C, fridge and a good size shower in the bathroom.
Breakfasts were plentiful with everything you would expect of a continental style, including yoghurt, fresh fruit, cereals, ham, cheese, fruit juices. The staff are helpful with any questions about the area.
Our only gripe, and the reason I haven't given 5/5, is that the noise insulation between the bedrooms is rubbish. For the first two nights, our neighbours were early to bed (we could hear them snoring from 10pm) and early to rise (talking and moving around at 6am). One night there was a group of younger guests who came back to the hotel at various times between midnight and 2am with plenty of noise. Earplugs would help!!
Would we stay here again - yes, it offers good value in a great location
