We booked a classic room. It was very small but we could have lived with it for 2 nights except for the fact that the oversize bathroom was a huge white room with no separation for a large shower area big enough to enter directly with a wheelchair. We had not reserved an accessible room. Even for people who need an accessible room, It was completely out of taste and located in front of the elevators. We said we were not staying but they found a renovated room for us which was acceptable, although noisy at times. The common areas should be kept cleaner as well. A dated old carpet in the stairs going up to the rooftop restaurant is not acceptable. But.. we were told that major renovations are coming soon. Good to hear..
That restaurant (on the rooftop..) is very nice, the food is good, and the service was impeccable. With an incredible view of the Vatican and other lit churches and monuments at night. You have to reserve a table.
I would stay there again because of the good location but I would make sure we book a renovated room.
