Upon arrival at the hotel, the clerk was very kind and helpful as I do not speak a single word of Italian. Got me checked in, gave me a room key, and helped me with directions twice when I could not find the direction of the elevator. This was the only positive part of the trip.
The room was dilapidated. Door handle nearly falling off when I went in. Light switches (rocker switches) were all beaten badly and flipped so easily they could slip down and shut off on their own, or so stiff they barely clicked. I noticed the fuse panel was open as well, but will return to that later. Brought my luggage in and went to the bathroom. The hand-towel rack and shower door were both hanging askew, and could not be fixed. Every shower I took covered the floor in water because a) the door would not close and b) the shower head was so loose and old that it would not stay in the position you put it in, always sliding back to point out of the perpetually open door. there was also a long, dirty string going up to another rocker switch INSIDE the shower. I tried pulling it but nothing happened. I assume it went to ventilation for the room, but the ventilation duct (above the shower stall) had been completely ripped out, and there was a gaping 5" round hole overlooking the shower.
After I tried the restroom out, I attempted to close the fuse panel, which was hanging open. To my dismay, when I pushed the panel shut, all the lights went out. I tried every switch, and realized that I must have pressed one of the switches when I close the door. However, when I opened the door, all the switches were in the 'ON' position. I could not read the items, so I pulled each in turn. I found the lighting switch, which had had the fuse removed and was kept pulled out, bypassing the safety circuit for the room. I had to leave it like this for the duration of my stay, or have no lights.
The bed was extremely uncomfortable, so firm I could have been laying on the desk and it would have felt the same. The sheets were hard and scratchy, and the blankets not much better. 1 pillow per bed, also mashed flat. I did not remove the covers to inspect, only covered them up with a t-shirt to make it more comfortable.
Breakfast was one of the sorriest affairs I have ever seen. Continental breakfast began at 7a and ended at 10a. Allowing for the first rush of business people through, I arrived at breakfast my first morning at 7:45a to find a small amount of extremely cold food that should have been hot, and an even smaller amount of warm sliced fruits. The eggs (scrambled) looked like they had cheese melted over the top, but upon putting a scoop on my plate, it was apparent that it had congealed from sitting in a cold tray. It was in a warming tray with what could have been bacon, but the tray heater was never lit, and so everything sat and cooled off/congealed. The following day's breakfast was only marginally better, because they did not serve ANY hot food. I got there at 7:05a to find the tray empty. There was plenty of sliced fruit this morning that had not sat out for nearly an hour, so I filled my plate and hurridly finished to get out of the dirty dining room. There was one waitress bussing tables/serving coffee, and she did not stop by any table unless directly called to, she was so busy. The front desk (not sure if it was the same clerk) made no appearances during this, despite having the door to the kitcen within 2 feet of the front desk.
The straw that broke the camel's back was the refridgerator. I went out for dinner that night and got a small pizza. I could not finish it, so I tried to store in the room's refridgerator. Unfortunately, the fridge was plugged in, set to max cold, and was still not functioning at all. I had to throw out half of my food because there was nowhere to put it. After looking at the other reviews for this hotel, I decided my best course of action was to check out early. The same clerk that checked me in was very concerned and offered a room, but I had had enough. I showed them the issues, handed in my key and left.
I was scheduled to stay from 11/26 to 12/7 staying for business, I checked out on 11/29.

We stayed here with 3 rooms for 3 nights each. My company paid a total of 9 room nights between 19.9.18 through 22.9.18. My colleague & I put up in room 108. Whdn we checked in, the front desk only issued 1 room card & refused to issue a second one.

Room bar soap was discarded after we opened for minor hand was on 2nd day, & it was not replenished. Bathroom had huge window facing a common balcony & apartments behind the hotel with barely transparent screen without opaque curtain. Literally visible if lit at night. There were several broken wall tiles on the wall near the wc. Shower enclosure was tight, & I suspect the shower head had not been descaled from minerals as the water had inconsistent pressure & sprayed into various direction. Floor tiles were porcelain, polished & glossy, slippery when we emerged from shower & its wet.

The beds were covered with a rubbery cover. Beneath that, there were no quilt, barely a sheet. The orange rubbery cover was so slippery & provided no warm with slightest sleeping movement, it would hv slipped on the floor.

Breakfast tables were never cleaned & replaced with table mats once used, you can only collect new utensils from buffet bar but to settled with dinning tables that were filty. Service & kitchen staff were short handed, unless you were among the earliest to come down when breakfast was available from 7am, you are likely left with have no hot food left which were only scrambled eggs & mushroom. When you requested the service staff to replenish, you must have time to wait for at least 25 minutes. There is a hot water dispenser next to all tea bags, which probably contained abt 5 litres, when it was empty at around 840am, no service staff refilled it. The Italian Restaurant outside was ok. We had lunch there on first day of arrival on 19.9.18. In a small city like Sassuolo, I would say this hotel’s location was good opposite a huge Supermarket. The 4* rating was over-rated, will not stay here to suffer again.

Very basic but clean and the bar stays open late. The room was spacious and clean although a strange window that opens right across the room. We stayed here for one night and food is good in the area.

Could do with some irons as they charge to iron your clothes.

Where to start. I'm not prone to hysterics or raving but this hotel is extraordinarily bad. A list is quickest;
1. Three room changes; the hotel is on a very busy roundabout and traffic noise is unavoidable in the rooms on the front. Second room was at 31 degrees and the A/C didn't function. Maintenance solution? Open the windows. Whilst I am not adverse to fresh air, being directly in front of the ventilation and A/C units was a non-starter, let alone the issue with rain ingress. 3rd room and I had lost the will to live. 25 degrees, no working A/C and a raft of problems.
2. A four star hotel does not normally have curtains peppered with holes or repairs to the nets.
3. 3 hangars in the wardrobe. Thank heavens for cabin luggage.
4. The bed would suit lovers of floor-sleeping. Rock hard. And blankets. Very 19th century.
5. Fire escape door was wedged open with a fire extinguisher, perfect for anyone wishing to visit the hotel by-passing reception.
6. The shower fixings were coming off the wall, the grout was filthy, the shower flooded the bathroom (I suspect the trap has become disconnected), and to top it all you had to shimmy through the tiny gap between the WC and the shower opening to get into it.
7. The cleaner unceremoniously dumped all my toiletries and make-up in a pile on the stool, a first for me, especially as I am rigourously tidy, in order to avoid giving the cleaners a tougher job.
8. Breakfast; cakes, sugary yoghourts (including the natural), sweet bread. OR fatty charcuterie. Boiled eggs were the only healthy foodstuff. The miserly amount of fresh fruit was snapped up instantly. This must tell the hotel something, no? Even the coffee was served already sweetened. Tepid water for the tea. It's not difficult to get a buffet breakfast right.
9. To top it all, one of the two lifts only went down as far as the first floor. A Godsend for those with luggage, small children or infirmities. The lift floor covering was in a very tawdry state boasting broken tiles. Whilst this may seem minor, the lifts are Schindlers and so a very good make. For there to be this kind of disrepair and disfunctionment there cannot be a maintenance contract of any worth. In a lift? Not good.
If I had a room tip, it would be go to another hotel. I couldn't as I was part of a delegation, but I would have had I had the possibility, as was the view of my colleagues. I can only imagine the owner is allowing this hotel to run to the ground for some kind of business reason, as it appears to be virtually full and no discernable reason why a refurbishmnet could not take place.

We stayed at the hotel when we visited the Ferrari Museum nearby at Maranello. First impression was good, the room was essentially a suite with a separate seating area, so quite large. However we soon found that the bed was very uncomfortable, the room was very cold, and there is no restaurant, though we were told to try the restaurant next door, but they was full, so as there was nothing else nearby as the hotel is on sn industrial/housing estate we ended up with an in room picnic from the local supermarket! The hotel does serve breakfast, but it is quite basic, and the coffee is horrible! For a single night it's bearable, but don't book for a longer period.
