This was the second time that I stayed at the hotel and I would certainly reccomend it, especially for the business traveler. Great for tourists as well that don't want to be near the crowds of the Duomo or want more residential surroundings than the hotels near the rail station (Centrale) offer. Even though it is not centrally located, there is a metro and bus stop at the corner and a taxi was never more than 5 minutes away. I do have to say that even though the hotel advertises itself as a 'Luxury' hotel, guests used to the W Hotel's 'Dream' beds or the Marriott Hotel's 'Supreme' beds will be disappointed...bedding and pillows are quite stiff and are sub-par for a 4* Luxury Hotel, without a doubt. In any case, hotel is fairly new, clean and very well maintained. Pool, fitness center, and spa are all great. Bar is open late and staff is friendly. The only issue I had was with the hotel's internet service 'Swiss Com' which is not user friendly and needlessly complicated. It repeatedly lost connection and had to reconnect several times, which is not a simple process. I, nor none of my colleagues, were able to access wifi in the lobby either. I remember not liking the internet service provider during my previous stay so I made sure to mention it this time. Front Desk wasn't interested and essentially brushed my comments aside, saying that this service is used throughout Europe. Just because a service is widely used however, doesn't mean that is is efficient or user friendly.
I would reccomend this hotel to others and just hope that they bring their bedding standards up to what one would expect from a 4* luxury hotel and that they change their internet service provider.
