The good news was location, - right next door to Balduina train stop...so access from airport was not a problem, and travel to the Vatican was just a few train stops away. Further good news - rooms clean and breakfast sufficient and best news - Capperi Restaurant immediately next door was great - we ate there three times within one week. Cost was relatively good from what we compared it to. The bad news was our room on the 5th floor that required a very steep stair climb AFTER opening the guest room door (we already climbed 5 flights to our floor...there is only a small lift and claustrophobic me. That was a challenge considering suitcases to carry and not being a mountain goat. Our second room one week later was on the main floor and that was much better. The front desk staff were hit and miss - two were cranky and despite as polite a Canadian behaviour as we could muster were not helpful but one young man working there the second time we stayed (two stays before and after cruise) was wonderful....and without him our Hop on and Hop off bus adventure might not have happened. We had construction noise right outside our patio due to the pool complex being erected and I envision that will be the case for the next year or so. Note: there is no pool now even though the brochure shows one.
With it being clean and decent value and so near the train station we may return, but more consistently helpful staff (that did not look at us like tourists are by definition an annoyance) would have made all the difference.
