We stayed at the Hotel Seccy our last night in Italy before we flew home. Although the hotel is very convenient to the airport and the staff is helpful, we can't recommend the Seccy Hotel. Our primary goal was a good night’s sleep before heading to the airport. This was made difficult by a noisy air conditioner that was having trouble keeping up with the 80 degree temperature. Rome is often much warmer than 80 so this is a real problem. The issue was made worse by the fact that the hotel has one of those gizmos that require you to put your key in a slot in order for the lights and air-conditioning to come on. We managed to get the room to a warm but acceptable temperature but, when we went to dinner, we had to remove the key and the temperature went right back up. This is really a stupid setup – Rome is often warm and this just doesn’t work.
The hotel is located in a strange area that’s a combination of light commercial and residential buildings. The streets are poorly lighted with lots of dark alleys and uneven sidewalks. Coming back from dinner was the only time during a month in Italy that we felt unsafe. In hindsight, we should have driven the four blocks to dinner.
We'll look elsewhere next time.
