We had a brilliant holiday here. We had read previous reviews about the hotel shuttle that would pick us up from the airport so I contacted them to enquire. They were so helpful and picked us up (it's cheaper than a normal taxi). Once arriving we were met with the fantastic location and lovely staff. We were then shown to our room which was amazing. Nice and big and the bed was very comfy. Also, we didn’t hear any noise from our room (101). We used the shuttle into the centre both days and it’s well worth it. It’s cheap and reliable. It takes you there about 9 and picks you up at 7 so you get a nice long day there - may sound like a long time but doesn’t feel it. Rome itself was great, made me glad that we weren’t staying in the centre though as it’s so busy and at the hotel it’s so peaceful. We ate at the hotel restaurant one night and it was lovely, not too much choice but it was good and not bad value. Much better than the pizza place down the road! We tried there as there were so many good reviews on here, after being unsure if it was open or not, we got a seat in this big empty restaurant with no one else there. The food was awful.... Frozen readymade starter and the pizzas were burnt and very salty, however it was very cheap. I would not recommend this place. Tip - the beer in the mini fridge in your room is cheaper than the beer from room service or at the bar.
