And here comes another disappointed traveler, lured by a free shuttle at the front page of the hotel website. The same story: complained to Priority Club, directed to the hotel manager, who sends their useless web-page address which has “FREE SHUTTLE” in the middle of it. Who would go and check out what exactly this free shuttle means unless you don’t really arrive at midnight (our flight got to Rome at 20:30). The last bus leaves at 21:00 from the airport and the first one from the hotel (I think) at 7:00 am. Which basically means that if you flight arrives after 20:00 and leaves before 8:30 am, you have to add 40+40 euros to your hotel bill. It is just mindboggling…can’t they just add “limited” to “free shuttle service” (got 8 trips per day)? It does not help if they are hiding the schedule somewhere a few clicks away (try to find the schedule!). And it’s true that with 60 euros for a taxi one can get easily to Rome (have never figured it out why as the center is still some way from the hotel). By the way, the distance of 12 km from the airport is wrongly advertised – had to take taxi twice (hence, adding 80 euros to my hotel bill because of all this) and both times got 15 km.
Otherwise, it is a big hotel-factory, without any personal touch and with below average staff. Paper walls. Big and noisy tourist groups. Literally nothing around the hotel. A big mistake.
