2.48km from Osteria Antico BorgoWe were booked for 4 nights and checked out after 2. The bed was very hard and very short. The sheets might have come from the itchy and scratchy burlap store if Modena has one. I’m 5’10” and I hit my head and feet on the head and footboard as I stretched out in my sleep, waking myself up over and over. After two sleepless nights, we checked into another hotel and wrote off the cost as lessons learned. The hotel staff said they would have done something to make it better, but I don’t think they had a spare bed and mattress. I’m sure they also would have provided more toilet paper had we asked, but it was late when we realized the maid hadn’t replenished it so we bought our own. 1/3 of the light bulbs were burnt out and, I’m sure the staff would have replaced them, but we didn’t bother to ask because the bed was a deal breaker. The faucet in the kitchenette worked, but was not secured to the counter adding to the sense of disrepair in the room. The rooms were interesting, but I was sorry to see that our room was dedicated to Annunzio the father of fascism who shaped Mussolini’s and Hitler’s thinking. Other rooms are dedicated to film makers and poets, but we were in the fascist room. There is also no signage outside the building stating the reception is on the 1st floor, so we were confused when we arrived as to how to check in, and emailed and called which led to a maid buzzing the building door open but not coming down, so I went floor to floor starting at the top until I found a maid who showed us the reception area in an apartment on the 1st floor. Also, like another reviewer, we noticed a strong smell of sewage—not in the room—but in the entry hall and elevator. And lastly, the bar downstairs is loud after the municipal deadline of midnight. Two floors up from the bar we could feel the pulsing of the music after 1am. The fact that this place has received awards from booking.com and trip advisor and primarily excellent reviews leaves me questioning whether I’ll ever look at trip advisor or booking.com ever again for ratings.
