Chose this hotel because of walking distance to Porta Susa Train station. The room was a bit small but very well maintained and super clean. Not modern facilities but what they had was classic and very nice.
Had trouble with the WiFi and had to sit in the lobby to use my laptop. That was quite inconvenient - I dont think their server is strong enough to reach the rooms.
Front desk staff was not very helpful and we had to figure out everything on our own. We didnt know how to phone room service and asked at the desk and she sent us downstairs to the kitchen to get help??? She didnt help with the internet access, etc.
Breakfast was included and had a good variety of meats, eggs, rolls, etc.
I would recommend this hotel and would stay again.
