The Executive hotel is located in a mixed industrial-homestead area south of Udine, relatively comfortably located away from the motorway. Cheap for a 4-star rated hotel, but practicably not more than a 3-star location. Nice rooms, quite well equipped, but partially defunctional. We first got a room where the lock did not work. We could come in with our key of another room, which was given us by mistake and could not lock it afterwards. We then had to move to another room, where the lock was working. Quite helpful staff, but a bit of the proverbial "laisser-faire" of the Italian way of life.
Acceptable restaurant with a very small choice of food, engaged, but untrained service personal which had no idea about their offer of food and wine! No recommendation for holidays, but acceptable for a cheap stopover of the 3-Star quality with a certain negligence about the "necessities of life".
This for me is not a 4 stars hotel for the following reasons:
Hotel location: 2/5 as far from city center and so need to take taxi or rare public transport to move.
Hotel cleanliness: 2/5 Even if the bathroom was cleaned every day, the room was not very well checked as I had from day one for 2 days a couple of death bedbugs on the floor that was cleaned the last day.
Breakfast 2/5: Sad, missing many food of what you would expect from a decent hotel. There was also available some fruit, but they also look old and stale (apples)... Also multiple times I was the one greeting the staff at the breakfast area and I was the one asking for a cappuccino without having been approached by the staff. Very cheap food served.
Reception: 4/5 very nice and ready to answer questions, but felt a bit cold too.
Lift 2/5 : be ready to do the floor up or down as the only lift available for 3 floors building is really really slow and also small.
Suggesting to a person to go here? Definitely not.
We had booked a family room and were quite suprised about the smell of cigarettes in the room. Probably the room was a smoking-room some time ago, but the smell had stayed there ever since. We asked for another room but there were no other triple rooms available at that point.
Wi-Fi were very poor and did not work all the time. The receptionist kept saying that the Wi-Fi was OK even though it had stopped working in three different devices.
The breakfast was OK but somehow one of us managed to get a bad egg - well it could happen anywhere but we were not too happy about it.
This hotel, at best is a 2 star rating.
The rooms are very basic, mine (325 ), is small, basic equipped, plastic cups to drink,old used towels washed again and again.....
- shower cups
- Shampoo/ Conditioner
- Safe Deposit Box
The air condition just blows air with little cooling.
We occupied a ground floor meeting room with a little ac unit. The hotel has not a single fan, so we went out and bought one ourselves.
The staff is generally unfriendly to rude.
Nobody really cares there.
Service is word from the " Dreams Directory !!!!!!!!
We've stayed here twice now on route from turin to Austria.
It's a great little hotel if maybe a little tired, but for us (with 7 trucks and a van) there's plenty of space to park.
They don't unfortunately offer any kind of restaurant service but they do do breakfast.
And as for dinner we've found a few nice restaurants in which to eat. The Chinese (5mins walk towards town) is especially good.
The one downer is that this hotel has poor aircon, the building seems to heat up like a storage heater during the day and it's impossible to cool the rooms down at night.
If you can manage to a hot little room this isn't a bad hotel.
