Stayed in October 2011,2 nights for 3 people.
Spanking Brand New Hotel, with the modern contemporary design as their theme. Nice big,clean and modern rooms. Was a surprised to find a new modern design hotel smack in the middle of Rome (ie old and ancient historical buildings) and surrounded by other hotels.
Price wise, i think is slightly pricier as its a 4star hotel but if your looking for modern design i think thats the only few hotel with that price range(slightly higher than a 3star hotel) available.
The breakfast was so-so only, but because places in Rome are actually further and due to the lack of time we didn't waste time walking around to find for breakfast. However, didn't like the fact that there they do not provide boiler/mini kettle in the rooms. They have this vending machine kiosk at every interval floor pantry where you can pay to buy a small plastic cup of hot water.
I find the staff at the receptionist abit snobbish and wasnt really helpful. Wanted to seek their help to plan out our itinary as we have limited time. Needed help with the tourguide books because they were all in italian ( No more english version) which i can only make out the title and the price. I arrived at 9 am and was hoping to be able to start the morning tours ASAP. Anyway, manage to get it all sorted out in time and it was a great trip nevertheless.
Location- as we took tours for the 2 days straight, and travelled mostly by taxi to save time, there is nothing much to comment whether if its strategic or walking distance to many places.
