I booked a room here through Expedia for my family -2 adults and 2 children - for a one night stopover in Rome at end of two weeks in Puglia. Chosen for proximity to termini and colosseum and these were the best bits about the experience. Staff were aloof but helpful enough, breakfast adequate on a roof terrace with a view. Room had a faded elegance and was shabby - my children who are less discerning thought it rather posh!
Be warned though. We turned up to find the hotel had no record of my booking for my children and had given us a standard double. I had evidence that I had booked for us all and they eventually after some silly antics put a single bed - just one - in our room for both my children to use (aged 6 & 8) and charged us an extra €25. The extra bed was atrocious - more like a hammock.
Good thing it happened at the end of our holiday - we were very relaxed - and we refused to let it spoil our time in Rome.
The hotel blamed Expedia and when I tried to claim back the €25 from Expedia they blamed some faceless booking system. Typical!
So, in all honesty I can't recommend the hotel but if you are an optimist then you can probably accept that we were just very unlucky! I certainly would advise against going anywhere near Expedia's website.
