Nice hotel but too far
Posted Aug 29, 2016
When I saw other reviews that said it was too far and checked the distances, I thought I would give it a try anyway. My mistake.
The problem is that taxis are too expensive and take you all around the place just to charge you more money, and there are not really friendly places to walk; the walk to the closest Metro station was 15 minutes.
The room itself was not bad, it was clean, big enough and had a closet and safe. Beware of the tub, is high and a misstep could cause a fall. We had fun just watching the TV. I mean it, it was a small old 13 inch tube TV that had a trick to turn it on, and of course you could only get like 5 channels, all in Italian.
As in Paris, no more scrambled eggs at breakfast if they were gone by the time you went to eat. At least breakfast was included in the room price.
The receptionist was very kind and helped me give my sister directions for the bus from the airport so that she wouldn't have to pay the high taxi fee; he also told us how to get to the train station and gave us a map that was a lot of help. Ah, there is a Chinese restaurant a few steps from the hotel, really good food and very inexpensive.
