Functional - not the best for business
Posted Nov 17, 2016
This hotel is real mix so go in eyes open and with limited expectations. First, it is a bit challenging to find, even when you have a good idea where to look. The listed address is on the main street but the entrance in is a side ally. It would be helpful to have a sign on the street with an arrow pointing in the dead end alley. The "Hotel" sign on the building is half covered by an overgrown bush. The actual name of the hotel nor the actual building number were not marked anywhere that we could find outside so you are left to wonder if you found the right place. The room and bathroom were small even by Italian standards. As single business travelers, my colleague and I had separate rooms on the top floor. The sink is literally in your face when sitting on the toilet. I'm small and fit but I'm sure the shower is barely negotiable for anyone over 6ft or a little on the "big boned" side. The is no space for desk & chair so to work in my room, I set my laptop up on the TV table and sat on the night stand. For a small hotel, they have a very functional gym. Other reviews have noted you can hear/feel the subway pass under the building so if you are a light sleeper, this might be a problem.
All thing considered, it was fine for 2 nights and I appreciate the earlier posted reviews so that I wasn't expecting more than a very basic place that was going to be rough around the edges.
