          The reception was neat and clean. Well air conditioned, so was lovely to enter the building. Breakfast was very good, good selection of food.

          Mini fridge didn't work, fire alarm went off at 3.00am.

          value for money... very clean and comfortable. really worth the money!

          shower was not made well... it causes some flooding in the bathroom

        • Family with children

          I liked the modern look of the hotel inside. The room and bathroom were a good size. I liked the cleanliness and the high ceilings and decorations. Most important the room had air conditioning and a refrigerator. I would return to this hotel. I liked the buffet breakfast that was included. A lot of variety.

          I did not like one of the food service staff members, she was rather snobbish and acted like my son and I were trash. Not sure what her issue is, but she needs an adjustment to her attitude.

          The lady receptionist was very friendly. Breakfast was alright, considering what we paid. The design of the hotel is as nice as the pictures show you.

          During our stay there was a problem with the showerdoor not closing properly which caused a flood in the little bathroom. The cleaner came to clean up but we could not be moved to another room due to the hotel being fully booked. We had to call the cleaner everytime we had showered. More annoying, there was a problem with the fire alarm system. During our 16h stay, we had 5 times the firealarm, of which 2 during the night. Horrible night sleep but not even a gesture of compensation was offered.

          The hotel was a pleasant surprise as we had only paid a budget price . It was perfect for the station and our early morning train. The staff even made us up a take away breakfast bag without us asking. Staff, facilites and location could not be faulted. We will definately like to stay at another Idea hotel.

          I cannot think of anything that we liked about this hotel!

          Staff were rude and unhelpful. Shower flooded everytime we used it. Would never go back again.

          Hotel is very nice. I liked it very much. Stuff is so kind and helpful, especially reception girl Ursulla. She let us leave our stuff and also print out some things. Location of hotel is perfect: very close to central station and metro. Rooms are very clean and up to date. It has all facilities. I would recommend it to everybody.

          The rate was good. The breakfast was nice. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

          When the room was cleaned the dirty small towels were removed but not replaced with clean ones. Of the two plastic cups, one broke on trying to unwrap it from its plastic cover. The other was removed the next morning and not replaced.

          Η Ursula. She is the best receptionist and the most helpful!! The breakfast was perfect and its location too. It was only 3 minutes walk to the closest metro station and 5 minutes from the Stazione Centrale.

          The rest staff, They didn't talk not even say "hi". The fact that it didn't have free parking spaces for those who stayed there was a bit irritating.

          Great location near station and airport shuttle. Short walk to centre. Lovely hotel. Very helpful reception staff, even arranging us a packed breakfast due to early departure.

          The breakfast was excellent, and the front desk was friendly and helpful.

          The room was stifling. The AC was centrally controlled and we called twice to ask them to make the room cooler, however, it remained 27 degrees all night. Also, there were several holes in the wall around the window and several mosquitoes on the wall. I woke up with 13 bites on my arms and shoulders. There were no blankets on the bed or in the room, just sheets. The walls were scratched and dirty. The provided shampoo was used...less than half the bottle was full when we checked in.

          Very close to train station. Superior complimentary breakfast and espresso. Staff had excellent city recommendations.

          We were placed on the top 6th floor which could only be reached by stairs on the 5th floor. Close to train station but far from night life and metro closes early- plan accordingly.
