Positives: hotel is conveniently located only a few minutes walk from Piazza Bra + the Arena. The road in front is not very busy. Check-in was easy, the receptionist very kind and helpful, also those during the day. Just like the ladies serving breakfast, they were great, very attentive and helpful! The hotel was very clean, breakfast very good and the homemade cakes very tasty. Coffee was excellent - the best in a long time -.
Now the negatives: unfortunately, quite a few.
1.) we caught a bank holiday, the hotel was full + in the rooms opposite were five young women who returned early morning (3 to 4 o'clock) with a lot of noise - no more sleep -.
2.) The night porter was not very helpful at all: we asked for some coffee sticks and milk for the room as the maid did not fill up: "This is not my responsibility, please ask tomorrow morning again." Customer service?
3.) On their Intranet site they offered a free of charge cocktail (one each per day). We used it 2 or 3 times, but there were no ice cubes (!!) available :-( They tried to charge us for these drinks - I had a picture of the screen.
4.) In the room the floor boards were moving and so the floor lamp was moving and squeeking. There was a step in the bathroom that took 2 days to get used to, not marked, easy to overlook and fall.
5.) We had a toast with ham and cheese, never had anything as dry as that: no butter, not properly toasted.
