My wifew and I just returned from 5 nights at the Jumeirah in Rome. It is a nice hotel but not at all what we have experienced in other locations.
Check in was smooth and lobby staff was very helpful. Our room was average but was cleaned daily. It is located in a very nice part of the city but is at the top of the hill - if you walk to the sites you will have to return back up the hill.
The lobby bar is a little outlandish. My wife ordered a vodka/soda and it cost 21 Euros. Now I realize that hotel bars are more expensivfe but this is not right. Needless to say we never returned.
Our other issue was when we booked our tour for the Vatican through the concierge. We really wanted to tour the church and was told to book the Vatican Museum tour to bypass the line. When we got there we did not have the proper pass and di end up having to stand in line to tour the church. Just a note - the line lokslong but moves very quickly; maybe 15 minutes to get in.
We will definitely return to Rome but will probably stay elsewhere.
