My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't have made a better choice. The hotel was stunning and had an amazing charm to it--definitely worthy of its star rating.
The breakfast had something for all appetites: cereal (3 varieties with 2 choices of milk), yogurt (fruit or plain), fresh fruit, pastries, eggs, meat (prosciutto and sausage), and bread. There was also coffee and fresh juice along with a prosecco or other sparkling-esque wine.
The staff was very attentive and spoke English well. They also allowed us to use a voltage converter free of charge by only paying a deposit.
The shuttle runs every half hour and is reliable although the timing can be a tad late. The shuttles also fill up quickly so definitely book the day before for your departing and returning shuttle.
The hotel is incredibly close to numerous bus stops so you are within 30-45 minutes of anything you'd need to get to. Termini station is a short bus ride away and from there you can basically get anywhere.
There is wireless internet which is incredibly useful for people from outside the country.
The air conditioning doesn't get extremely cold but it's enough to be reasonably comfortable.
The internet requires a new password which is sent by text message daily.
The hotel isn't within walking distance to anything you'd want to see and is also fairly insulated from any great restaurants.
