Last week my brother and I took a trip to Europe and stopped in several places and our first city was Rome. We stayed at this Holiday Inn and several others in Europe as I am an IHG employee and got the employee discount. This hotel is quite large with lots of rooms but the room we were put in was quite small. 2 beds a tv and a closet along with the bathroom. Compared to the other hotels we stayed at this hotel room was easily the smallest of them all. The beds were comfy and were just barely long enough for us to sleep on. The tv in the hotel room didn't work except for about 5 channels while there was a tv guide that had 15-20 different channels. This didn't matter too much as we were out most of the time and just came back at night to sleep. The front desk workers were nice and helpful with trying to get on wifi but it was only available in the lobby and each day the wifi password changed. But it was enough to let us stay in contact with our family back home. Breakfast was ok, not used to the european style breakfast of cold meats boiled eggs and such other things. Bartender was nice. When we were trying to leave in a hurry to the airport the day we were leaving, there was trouble finding our luggage and a worker had to be called down to find our bags but that was taken care of fairly quick once the gentleman got down to the lobby. I didn't like the location of the hotel, off the highway on the opposite side and there is almost no room to walk to the hotel once you do get over. Then you have a walk up a drive and hill that is quite bothersome. That wold be my main complaint is the location of the hotel. View is nice once you get up to the hotel and in your room but getting up the hill and down with luggage doesn't work for me.
