The hotel was fine except for the ac not working to our expectations. The staff were extremely pleasant and made wonderful suggestions as to dining and sights. The restaurant in the hotel, Lo Zafferano, was unbelievable. It has a great wine list to be expected in Italy but at reasonable prices. The food and service was outstanding. We had a tuna steak which was outstanding. We also had the veal shoulder another winning meal. Desserts were equally outstanding. Did I forget to mention the presentation of each dish. They were so remarkable the we took photos to send to friends. This restaurant deserves a separate listing on Trip Advisor. It is worth dining here even if you are not staying at the hotel.
The Hotel is a bit far from the city center but you can find a few buses that can bring you near the center or train station. Regarding the rooms, i found them a bit dirty. The bathroom was clean but the room had a lot of dust (under the bed, on the furniture). The breakfast was ok (not verry variate but ok).
The staff was quite efficient and helpful and I thought the restaurant was nice, as well as the lobby area. Clean and modern but rather weak AC It is way off the beaten path, not convenient walking to anywhere. If you do not mind taking a taxi to town, then the good rates here are worth it. The desk is always ready to call a taxi and they arrive within a few minutes. We had a couple of problems with that, however. There was literally only one taxi in Arezzo that took American Express so we had to wait a long time or use another card. More importantly, we returned late from an out-of-town day excursion To Cinque Terra and there were no taxis at the train station. Everything was closed. If we were in the older part of Arezzo we could have walked but this hotel is not within walking distance of the train station. We had to walk to another hotel and ask them to call a taxi.
Stayed one night while driving from Tuscany to Rome, located in an industrial area, slightly tricky to get to. Modern design with nice amenities. Free self parking was one of the reason I picked this hotel. AC was a little weak for the hot Tuscan summer. Comfortable bed with good size room.
We stayed here for two nights when traveling from Florence to Rome as a halfway point. The newness and contemporary feel was very similar to the AC hotel in Florence we had just stayed at. The restaurant food and service exceeded my expectations since I thought this a business traveller with the usual mediocre restaurant. The food presentation and quality of service was excellent with fresh food and perfect size portions. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place near Arezzo and make sure have a dinner at the hotel
It amazes me that Marriott considers this hotel acceptable. Not a very clean property – Air conditioning never worked well, Shower ran hot and cold, mattress was broken (flat) on a board. We asked them to replace the mattress and they merely flipped it. Felt like an Ikea hotel. Laminate paper peeling off the MDF furniture. Staff not all that helpful, not well trained. It seemed like everyone complained that they were newly hired. Have stayed there twice, we should have learned our lesson the first time.
This hotel is very small and not close to town. There are no amenities and they do not provide anything other then a gym. Taxis are your means of transportation. They will change prices each time you get in and depending on the day only run in certain areas. Trains also follow this rule and will not go to the country on Sundays. The staff was helpful and polite. The restaurant was closed each time we went so make sure you grab something in town. They did however get us a expresso when we asked. The room was small. Only tv channel in English was BBC.
I was unfamiliar with the location of this hotel, but it ended up being in a good location for me to get onto Autostrade to drive to Florence. What I want to share is that Alessandro of their team was amazingly gracious to me on several occasions. The WiFi in my rental car had stopped working and the GPS in my phone was also malfunctioning. In addition, I was worried because the Hertz drop off in Florence was going to be closed when I dropped off my car. Alessandro came to my rescue by providing me with excellent directions and printing off maps, etc. for me to follow.
The room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was also spacious. I was amazed with the cleanliness. The reception team was exceptionally friendly! The breakfast was cheap and great value for money. The air condicioner in the room wasn't working and I was told that it wouldn't be turned on for another week, which was upsetting. I was forced to sleep with the windows opened, which was too noisy with cars on the highway. The two young waiters Andreas and Giancarlo (if I am not mistaken) were great! They were very friendly and served me during breakfast and dinner, very hard workers. I recommend to rent a car if you are staying in this hotel as it is a little far from the city centre. The wifi was fast and free.
We stayed for two nights and this property adequately met our needs. It did not provide complimentary breakfast to us because we used points for our stay, so we opted not to eat at the hotel. Nice bathroom with more amenities than typical (toothbrush, comb, etc.) and the king bed was comfortable. We were able to refill our water bottles in the nice fitness center. No in room safe, but safes are readily available behind the front desk downstairs. As mentioned in other posts, the hotel is in an industrial area which for us, made access easier than driving and parking in the congested part of town and it was quiet. We walked 2 blocks to eat at a great restaurant both nights, Da Oreste Cafe & Ristorante that even served gluten-free pasta.
