3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Disliked: Amenities
This is an inexpensive and out-of-the way apartment. The gym is thinly equipped with strange machines to use and only a random collection of light dumbells. There seems little capacity or willingness to fix things. I reported a recurrent noise in the room next to mine that woke me up repeatedly in the early hours of the night and yet nothing was ever done. All I was offered was to move which might have solved the waking up issue but makes me have to do all the work. The pool (etc) that are in the pictures are something of false advertising unless you read the fine print that says you have to pay per day! The restaurant that is supposedly part of the hotel is not attached and is not open in irregular hours. The bar is nice enough and has bar food only. The staff was nice but not overly helpful or anything like that. I chose to stay here for my work at the university next door, but if I did not have such work I would have stayed closer to the Via Roma or somewhere like that. The walk to the center or the action is at least 20 minutes and as much as 45 and given Italy's hostile relationship with Uber and other rideshare services, this is not the hotel for tourism.

My stay was overall a good experience, however the walls are like paper and you can hear most things the person next to you is doing, other than this it was a good experience.

Room with out shower!
The hotel itself isn't that bad but iff they charge for using the pool and than find it used by an outside club doesn't make a very good impression at least you expect a discount. Also the shower wasn't working so I paid for a room with out shower for two days even I reported it. When I mentioned it by checking out and ask for some discount all he could tell me is I should write it in the review it will help THEM. I think that was the last time I've stayed in that hotel.
