Back in September, we started our honeymoon in Roma and choose this hotel because of the ideal location. At the arrival, the receptionist told us that they don't offer anything special for honeymoons, but manage to give us the worst room of the hotel, because the hotel was fully booked (we actually booked 4 months in advance).The room was superior room, but it was so small, that I wonder how the normal room looks like. The room was ground floor, and ideally located between the street side ( we could hear all the cars passing by, and there is lot of traffic in this small street), the hotel storage room (hotel staff removing all the bins and cleaning equipment at 6am and bringing everything back in the afternoon during our not so relaxing nap time ) and the neighbours that were watching loud TV 24h. Breakfast was a 2 stars hotel quality. One single machine was making tea and coffee, so we had the choice between tea tasting after coffee, or poor quality coffee. There was no fresh juices (they only had the cheap juice made from concentrate), no fruits from the season, which is a pity as we were in Italy, in summer! There was very loud music in the restaurant, so we had to "escape" and move to the terrace to have a quieter breakfast (but hotter too!). Overall, a very bad start for our honeymoon, but luckily our hotel in Sardinia offered a real 4 stars service!
