I cannot be unfair by giving this hotel any less than a 'four circle' rating: the hotel was ideally placed in the centre of Rome, near to The Forum and the Coliseum, and also a short walk into the centre of the city; the three rooms that our party occupied were spacious, comfortable and finished to a high standard - I was fortunate to have one that looked t onto the Temple of Hercules at the front.
However, a number of the front of house staff that I encountered were very laid back, and I do not mean this in a positive way. At times, when ringing the concierge or, in particular, when interacting with the bar staff, my friends and I got the impression that we were more of a hindrance than a source of their income.
That aside, the roof-top bar and restaurant was a delight in that it afforded great views of the immediate area and beyond; it was a great place to meet in the afternoon/evening for a drink or meal. We did eat here on our first night and found the food to be excellent and priced accordingly.
The breakfast available in the morning was buffet-style and the choice was excellent: ranging from cereal and fruits to continental options and cooked eggs, bacon and sausage.
Despite the laissez-faire attitude of some of the staff, I would recommend this hotel as a great base to explore Rome. Just don't expect to be treated like an Emporer.
