This hotel is lovely and has so much to offer, the vending machine idea is a great idea and very reasonably priced. We actually ended up going to the SPAR which is just around the corner(on the main road) and brought food and wine from here though. The roof balcony is lovely, although a little chilly in the winter months - but still nice for some fresh air. Our main problem with this hotel was the extremely thin walls, our first room was postitioned by one of the vending machines and everytime someone brought something we could hear the whole process. We also had some chatty neighbours and could hear all of their conversations. On our 4th night (we stayed for 5) our room was extremely hot, so much so that we could not sleep. We rang down to recpetion and they gave us a fan. We spoke to the management the next day and were informed that this was something to do with the heating being put on for the first time and the position of our room. The manager was brilliant and had us moved into a new room straight away and also gae us a free breakfast as an apology, we were very impressed with his dealing with this matter. However our new room was postioned on floor 2 and was by the front of the hotel, everytime someone walked past our room (on the metal grates right outside) it sounded like someone was walking on a fire escape right outside our bedroom window. The hotel is in a great position and if you are lucky enough to have quiet neighbours, not be near a vending machine and on a high floor then I imagine it is wonderful!!!!! If not, be prepared to get little sleep. Normally I would have happily stayed in this hotel again but both my husband and I felt that the lack of sleep had an effect of the enjoyment of our time in Rome and therefore on our return we will stay somewhere else. A great hotel, great staff, great price, great location - shame about the noise.
