I was in a pilgrimage group, visiting basilicas and other holy places in Rome. For some reason, the tour operator placed us in this hotel, which was about 40 minutes from Rome. Not sure if the 40 minutes is due to the jam because there was one time it took us only 30 minutes (but perhaps the bus driver was in a hurry). The hotel itself is very comfortable (about 3.5 star). Although I did have a problem with the airconditioning. Apparently if the window is open, the aircon is wired to switch off. But in my room, even when the window is shut, the aircon refused to be switched on. For all three nights I was there, I had to keep calling hotel staff to fix the problem. Some of my friends said it wasn't a problem as it was already quite cold outside. However I need the airconditioning on as it was the only way I could get good air circulation. I do not dare leave the window open for security issues. I would be worried about criminals climbing in in the middle of the night. As a woman travelling and staying in hotels, I have learned to be very very paranoid about security. Anyway, regarding the air circulation problem, the first night was bad. I woke up with the air con off and a terrible migraine (which is due to bad air circulation).
Wifi is available and free. The only thing is that you need to generate the code from the TV set and it has to be renewed every 24 hours. Well, this isn't really a big deal. Except for the fact that my TV set refused to generate the code for me. I had to ask a friend in another room for the code. And there is no sharing of code.
Breakfast was robust. By that I mean, there were limited choices but plenty of what they had. There was bacon, poached eggs, ham, cereals, breads, buns, cakes, pastries, three types of juices, coffees, teas, milk. They even had prepacked biscuits (very handy for travellers). The only issue I had was with the registration at the breakfast room door. There were fifty of us in that pilgrimage group and we had early morning starts every day. At 630 a.m. every morning, fifty of us would be queueing so that one hotel staff (only ONE!) could tick our room numbers off on his or her list. Then we would be directed to a counter to get our trays, china plates, papers napkins, plastic cups and cutlery. Very cafeteria style. The first morning took us a long time. We got smarter the next day by working together to lay out many trays on a nearby table and just quickly placing the plates n cutlery on them for our friends to grab and go. I thought that the hotel staff should have done this. If I were to return on another visit to Rome, I wouldn't stay at this hotel. Unless I was visiting Tor Vergata. I didn't see many places near Tor Vergata. Just the highway, some shops nearby (laundry, sundry goods shop etc) and residential areas. But for those on their way out of Rome, this is a good place to stop for the night.
