We arrived in Rome on November 5th to discover our room was not at the Domus Elisa, but at another location nearby. Seems rooms were sold out and so we were sent to another apartment complex about 5 minutes away. This meant hauling our luggage up what seemed to me to be the Spanish Steps, and accross plenty winding cobblestone streets. Needless to say I was not pleased.
We were super early, so we were fortunate to be allowed to check in at 10am. The room was clean, but chilly. We had our own bathroom, but no hairdryer or iron. The plumbing took some getting used to as running the tap, shower or toilet meant everyone had to listen to what can only be described as the sound of a car engine backfiring.
Breakfast was at a nearby cafe. You had to get a breakfast ticket each morning and present at the counter to get your complimentary croissant and cappucino. It was ok, nothing to brag about.
All in all--If you're on a budget, stay here. It's right smack in the middle of everything. However, if you can afford to spend $50 more, splurge and stay at hotel. I would.More
