Ok, so this hotel isn't that bad. Me and dad are here from the 2nd of September until the 11th. So we have another 2nights here. Our stay has so far been very pleasant, and i imagine it to stay so.
So of my own experience here:
The staff are extremely helpful, and they understand English. Which has made our time here so very stress free. The place has exceeded all of my expectations. I can admit, from the review of most of the people here, I was expecting some run-down dump. But when I got out of the taxi I was blown away. Its clean, presentable, and has a rather posh reception area and desk.
The room is, I will admit, rather cramped. I mean there's the 2 single beds that have taken up almost all of the space in the room. But really, we have spent barely any time in the room. We only come here to sleep. And if you stay at this hotel, or any other one, its not like you'll be sitting in the hotel room the whole time! You're in Rome for goodness sake! You'd have to be an idiot if you spent your holiday to Rome in the hotel.
The bathroom is the real downside to the room, however. There's the toilet in the corner, and then one of those contraptions where you wash your privates- dad says its a Bidet. Anyway it's right in front of the toilet. Its ridiculous. Why anyone would use one I don't know, but why they even thought it would be a good idea to put it into such a small bathroom in the first place. It has left dad and I to sit awkwardly on the toilet.
Also, the beds aren't all comfortable. Mattress is hard, so is the pillow. But accept what you're given people! The reason I chose this hotel was because it was cheap. What do you expect? I spent 60€ a night to stay here, which has left me more money to spend on food, souvenirs, taxis and shopping at major shopping centres.
Back to the plus side. The Room service is good, we have come back from our trips everyday to find the room cleaned, and the beds made, along with fresh towels and sheets.
The hotel is close to all the major attractions, they are all within walking distance. But for those attractions that are further away (particularly Saint Peters), theres a taxi rank just 5minutes walking distance from the hotel. And also on the plus side, this hotel has free wi-fi! And its fast too. Always a plus when we have come back from our exhausting walks around the city to come back to the hotel and check out the news or Facebook.
And just a personal message to all the people that have complained about this hotel, You chose this hotel because it was cheap and expected in return, to have the amenities of a 5star hotel. Grow up. You are the people that ruin this world.
