Fantastic Location, miserable staff

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 22, 2006

We stayed here August 2006 and were very impressed with the very central location and its facade - a 6th century tower included on many tourist trails! The rooms were very attractively decorated, we had two rooms - one for my husband and me and another for our 3 children. The children's room was really lovely having recently been refurbished with muted cream and grey decor, flat screen TV etc. The furniture was so attractive (writing desk and occasional tables) but absolutely no drawers in which to place clothes (there was hanging wardrobe space but not much good for 3 children's Tshirts and short!). The shower spurted everywhere except on yourself and you had to get off the loo to reach the paper on the other wall! Lovely comfortable bed though
However it's the service that I was most surprised at. The staff in reception were adequate, the bar very courteous and warm but the staff in the restaurant at breakfast were rude, unfriendly and even quite aggressive. There were not enough tables for guests and instead of smiling and being good humoured (which I find eases most difficult situations) they were exasperated and irritated that so many guests should be hungry at the same time! There was clearly a bad atmostphere between the staff there and they did little to disguise this.

Unique Quality: Beautiful medieval brick tower building which apparently was once a prison. Excellent central location moments from the Duomo. Very attractively decorated bedrooms.

Directions: Moments from the Duomo.
