WiFi wasn't given to us for free, EUR 5 per room if not mistaken. Some of our group member paid for the WiFi but feedback is the network connection not good. Lift located at the...

First of all don't get fooled by the pictures on their website! They might have rooms like that, but if you are unlucky like me you will end up a shabby looking old room, which is big as a shoe box! Shower is for lilliputians. At least everything is clean. BUT the walls are paper thin!!! 2 morning I woke...

Oké the beds were great, we've slept in the new part in a big room and it was a very nice room. But we had to walk almost a km before we reached our room. The stairs were on the other side of the hotel, only 1 elevator. Diner was dry and breakfast was great. There is a bar but...

The room was great: very big, with big table, big double bed and additional sofa bed and bed. The bathroom was also very big and comfortable. The breakfast was well...

San Marco is a nice historic building, very conveniently placed near the highway. The check in is ok. But the staff can not help much on anything as I found out later on. The room is old but clean. Has some serious problems tho: - Very small shower. basically you have to fit in a 80 cm x 80 cm...

Good hotel for a stay to visit Parma or just passing through off the Motorway, Good and clean room at a very reasonable price. Very good breakfast with many choices. A nice restaurant I didn't have time to utilize, but a good small bar in the front of the hotel. The entrance to the hotel is in the rear. Free...

It is not the Ritz but we have stayed here 4 times now on route to and from the ferry in Ancona. For the price the beds are comfortable, the rooms a good size, the service friendly. The food in the restaurant is always enjoyable and the house Chianti very nice. This time round our ferry was cancelled so we...

A very unfriendly chap helped us pick up our luggage at a place they call their Garage, which is shared with another entity, has no direct access to the hotel and is very primitive. The other staff seemed Ok, but very limited in number, so if something happens nobody will come to your room in the evening. Breakfast was fine.
