At first glance, the hotel is nice. The balcony is a nice touch and the AC makes the room really cold, there are restaurants and gelato shops within walking distance, and the walk to the metro isnt terrible. That's about all that's decent in this hotel. The towels smelled like glue, the toilet water smelled like rotten eggs, we had ants all over our room and the balcony doors didn't lock. We ate at the hotel restaurant once ($15 euro pp) and it wasn't good. Food didn't have any taste and although its a buffet, there isn't any variety. Its located on a really busy corner with traffic zooming by and this hotel has NO private parking. We searched for parking for 20 minutes and got lucky to find someone pulling out of a space close by the hotel. The rooms have no microwave or iron & ironing board. You have to request an iron and ironing board from the front desk, and when I did, i waited 30 minutes before requesting it a second time. It took 20 minutes at that point for it to be delivered. Hotel staff start cleaning at 8 in the morning, so the one morning my husband and I tried sleeping in, we were disturbed by hotel staff about 5 times, trying to enter the room. Completely annoying. This hotel doesn't understand that people who visit are on vacation, and need things like irons & sleep. We do plan on visiting Rome again but we definitely do NOT plan on staying here.
