Arrived by taxi from Ostience Railway Station in south Rome (27 euros) late morning. Not easy taking your suitcases up into Reception, there are a number of steps and only a makeshift ramp system for the suitcases. Checkin was a bit chaotic, there were three members of staff and to checkin, each one had a part to play. Would have so much easier if one person dealt with us.
Our room on the 6th floor had a balcony and distant views over Rome. The room was really well equipped, clean and a good size. We were right outside the lifts, but that didn't cause any noise problems.
There is as mentioned a shuttle bus service into Rome, drops off/picks up at one location, adjacent to the Vatican City walls. It makes the journey in and out every hour from 0800 through to 2200 hrs except for the period between 12 noon and 1600hrs when there is no shuttle. The journey took 20-30 mins depending on the traffic and it had plenty of room.
We did have dinner at the Hotel, this was of good quality but very expensive. We also had breakfast, but the variety and the freshness was not great.
The location, probably about 3 miles or so out of the centre is an issue, if you cope with the shuttle or the local trains (station about 5mins away) then it presents good value for money.
Internet is available via computers in the lobby at 35c per min. I think there is also Wi-fi.
The Hotel has an airport transfer car service available at 50 euros and took 30-40 mins at 300 miles per hour, well it seemed like it!
