4/10 Fair

Needs to improve its covid hygiene
It came up short on its post-covid hygiene. Dirty sheets, prehistoric (unwashed) blankets and alien hairs all in evidence. The receptionist was surly and unapologetic when we fed back politely. It needs to up its game.

European 2.5-3 stars
The AC didn’t really work in my room. During a hotel Italian summer this was a bit of an issue. Otherwise the location and facilities were good. Staff is friendly, if not a little handicapped by the limitations of the hotel.
