Good airport hotel, but shuttle hard to find

Friendly staff, good breakfast. Tried to contact hotel to find out about airport shuttle via wotif message and text but got no reply. Eventually found Italian website which stated shuttle leaves 25 minutely from exit 16 not from sign posted hotel shuttle area. Would save a lot of effort if details were on wotif listing

No Shuttle Bus

Pros: Room was clean and tidy.
Location: Close to airport, although taxi is still expensive.
Hotel was fine, room was clean and nice but nothing exceptional. However the only reason I booked this hotel was for the free airport shuttle bus as advertised... which did not pick us up and was fully booked out the next day. It only has 6 seats which is inadequate for a hotel this big. A cab would cost nearly €30.

Cheap hotel as long as you arrive @ the right time

No airport shuttle in the middle of the day so it cost me €15 for a taxi one way! Also, not laundry facilities which is why I had booked, and bar and restaurant have very limited opening hours, so when I arrived at 3pm I couldn't get any food until 7.30pm! Room was fine.
