when we arrived, there was a problem with electricity on the 3rd floor so they relocated us for one night to the Hotel Internazionale (excellent hotel). they couldn't have more apologetic.

Hotel is very well located, 5 minutes walking from the train station and less then 10 from Piazza Maggiore, so you don't need the car to visit the city. We had a standard room; modern, extremely clean, well equipped just a little bit too small. There are no reasons to not recommend this hotel.

I so like this hotel, I now ask for the same room each visit. And being able to use the hotels car park is so convenient. A previous post complained it's expensive.

Very nice hotel, very good staff. Rooms have extremely high ceilings and feel very nice. Near very good restaurants and local places of interest. A free welcome glass of wine on first night went down well. Would recommend.

We booked this hotel because it was close to town and an easy walk from the train station. Everything looked brand new. The lobby was very stylish. The breakfast buffet was delicious and the room was very interesting. I've read other less glowing reviews of this hotel, so I guess we were fortunate. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again....
