We stayed here for 4 nights and I was a little apprehensive having read other tripadvisor reviews. We decided on a city break in Rome to visit the wonderful historical sights NOT to spend time in a hotel room. The room was a good size, with a large bathroom with a bath and shower, 2 wash basins, toilet and bidet. There is a flat screen t.v. mini bar/fridge, large bed, large wardrobe and a safe. This was more than adequate for our needs. A few minor irritations: the A/C did not work very well, the bath plug did not work and the water drained away and there were not enough clothes hangers in the wardrobe....as I said minor!! The room was clean and serviced every day. We had clean sheets and towels every day. Some areas could do with re-decoration but in my opinion it would be a pity to spoil the appearance of this old building by decorating it in a more modern way.The decor in the room and throughout the hotel was in keeping with the age and style of the hotel. We ate breakfast in the hotel and there was a good selection each day. The fruit juice however was AWFUL...we think it was powdered juice made up with water...tasteless and considering there are orange trees on the street disappointing!! We did not eat dinner in the hotel, but their menu was in keeping with other places we looked at and the prices were similar....everywhere is expensive to eat!! The staff were friendly and helpful when we needed them (not often). Via Veneto is a lovely part of Rome to stay in and there are bus stops and a metro station near the hotel. There are lots of attractions within walking distance too. Please do not be put off staying here, especially if you get it at a good rate as we did on a Last Minute secret deal.
