    Exceptional

    The hotel has a great location - 1 minute walk away from the train station, 7 minute walk away from the lake. The room and the bathroom were big, clean, everything worked, everything in good condition. I would prefer wifi instead of the cable Internet but it was no big deal. The breakfast was good, the personnel both at the reception and in the restaurant were friendly and helpful. I liked the hotel a lot.

    I wish there was a way to fix the shower curtain so that it doesn't follow you and stick to you as you are having a shower :) Everything else was perfect.

    Superb

    Staff helpful. Convenient location to the train station and lake.

    No air conditioning. Temperatures over 32-34c and difficult to sleep. Very small fan for room but really didn't help.

    check-in et check-out rapidement effectués.

    En l'absence de climatisation, la chaleur à l'intérieur de la chambre était très élevée.

    Superb

    La stanza e il bagno era molto puliti e confortevoli e la posizione dell'albergo centrale.

    La tv aveva solo un canale in italiano.

    Exceptional

    Accueil est excellent, chambre spacieuse bien équipée et très propre. Le fait que l'hôtel dispose d'un parking gratuit dans l'hôtel est intéressant. Sa situation géographique: proche du centre ville et proche du lac, c'est parfait.

    La colazione, davvero di buon livello con prodotti molto buoni.

    L'accoglienza, davvero minimal, senza un sorriso da parte della receptionist.

    Very good

    Le buffet du petit déjeuner, la grandeur de la chambre et de la salle de bains, existence d'un parking gratuit.

    On nous a donné la chambre 111, côté rue (bruit) et derrière les drapeaux de l'hôtel!!, Sur le plafond de l'entrée de l'hotel. Ils auraient pu nous attribuer une chambre mieux située avec une autre vue que celle de derrière les insignes.

    Fabulous

    Accessibilité routière, parking gratuit. Petit-déjeuner dès 06:20, avec un buffet varié et généreux. Réception efficace.

    Mauvaise nuit, logeant au dernier étage, à côté de deux vieux ascenseurs et de leur bruyante machinerie située juste au-dessus. Non-réception des chaines de télévision françaises, qui sont passés à la tnt, l'hôtel n'ayant pas jugé opportun d'adapter leur installation de réception satelittaire. Au petit-déjeuner, portions sous vide de saumon fumé sauvage d'Alaska avec une date de consommation périmée de 13 jours...Je m'en suis appercu après coup; aucune anomalie à la consommation immédiate, et aucun embarras digestif par la suite.

    Le choix de nourriture au petit déjeuné. La tranquillité de l'hôtel. Le parking derrière l'hôtel

    La propreté de la chambre

    Fabulous

    Situation géographique / super

    Je me suis faite voler mon rétroviseur de mon véhicul dans le parc de l'hôtel d'après la police cet endroit est difficil et le patron de cet hôtel na rien voulu savoir... Je conseille à personne d'aller dans cet hôtel avec un véhicul...

    Superb

    la camera molto spaziosa, il letto molto largo, i cuscini morbidissimi, il salottino e tutto l'insieme ampissimo, rilassante e con colori piacevoli. Anche i nostri amici che ci accompagnavano sono stati contenti. La colazione deliziosa con Posteggio custodito.

    niente. Forse unico neo il pavimento del bagno che essendo un po' smunto ha un alone scuro intorno e una bruciatura di sigaretta........questo è dovuto alla mancanza di rispetto dei clienti. Comunque la pulizia è ottima.

    Tutto tranne due cose

    Orario di chiusura notturna alle 11 sbloccabile con codice quando l'apertura deve essere 24H/24H. Cuscino troppo molle.

    PAS DE CLIMATISATION: nous avons demandé un changement de chambre (chambre à l'arrière pour ouvrir les fenêtres nuit à 27°) - on nous a dit que l'hôtel était plein- le lendemain, cela a été infirmé par le personnel !
