I cannot in good conscience give the Beau Site a 4 rating. Maybe a 3.5 would be appropriate. Relying on TripAdvisor reviews, we booked thinking our last two nights in Italy before heading home would be luxurious. Not so much. It's located in a building housing businesses and I believe residences as well. You need to be buzzed in; there is no one to help you with luggage until you get it into the building's lobby and then you must carry them up some stairs to get to the elevator. The owner did come down to help us load it into the elevator. The hotel is located on part of the second floor of the building -- very small. The room was neat, but small, as is typical in most of Europe. Towels were not changed during our two-night stay. I would expect this from a 4-star hotel. A soap dish or small shelf in the shower would have been helpful, as would a robe hook. My husband noticed black mold in the grout in the shower; not cool. The breakfast room is pretty, but had no A/C and was very hot, even in the morning and consisted of pre-packaged croissants, and a few yogurts and some fruit in a bowl; a disappointing offering compared to other (3-star even) hotels we've stayed at in Rome. And the cappuccino was NOT good; how can that happen in Italy? Although located in a great neighborhood and with great air conditioning (thank goodness), and with a very nice, helpful staff, we felt as though we were a bit misled about this property, especially for the price paid.
