We received a warm welcome from hotel staff, Leonardo. Both my husband and myself enjoy our stay at The Ascot, Frienze. The hotel is near train/bus station, city centre and places of interest are all within walking distance. Greatly recommend Ciros & Son Ristorante which is close-by. Street market, shopping, cafes are just around the corner making this place so convenient to move about. Will stay in this hotel the next time.

It was an 'okay' place to stay but not where I would want to take my wife. Located centrally, the staff were all very helpful but the room was spartan, to say the least. A bit pricey for what was on offer.I'm not likely to return.

Great value hotel. Its right in the thick of things, close to train station. We were up on the 3rd floor so no street noise. Bed was fine. Room was small, but thats no complaint, just an observation. My parking bill was higher than the hotel bill.

In this particular stay, I was surprised (negatively) of the quality of the room and hotel for the high price offered, even thought rather friendly staff.

The bathroom is very awful. No area for shower. I have to make it next to (very close) the loo, toilet was wet after use. 130 Euro is very expensive for this hoter comparing to the quality.
