Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights over the 2011/12 New Year period. I am inclined to agree with earlier reviews that this is not altogether a four star hotel. My reasons are (1) our room really couldn’t have been smaller and had absolutely no view, despite us paying extra for a ‘superior’ room; and (2) the room service operated for only 3 hours per day (19.00-22.00).
That apart, this is a nice hotel with modern stylish fittings and is extremely well maintained. Spotlessly clean everywhere and the daily clean of our room was excellent and probably the best we have experienced anywhere. Pleasant garden but a bit to cool for us to use given the time of year we stayed – must be nice to come back to in the summer.
We had little need to trouble the staff but reception was excellent in all respects.
Breakfast was the only meal we took at the hotel which is entirely self-service. The choice, quantity and quality of the food were perfectly adequate for our needs.
The location of the hotel could not be nearer the Forum so very central to the city. About 10 minute walk to the busy tourist area but there are a few small shops and bars along the way. Enchanting side streets to walk through. The metro is about 15 minutes away by walking to the other side of Circus Maximus.
