Myself and my sister (in our late twenties) booked a last minute break in Rome, and the location of this hotel made it a good choice. However we feel it reached just a tad below 4* standard. For a four day break in Rome, it was great because:
- Within walking distance to main sites, right by Trevi Fountain but in a sidestreet, so away from crowds
- Buses outside hotel, metro about 7 minutes walk away with easy access to all attractions
- Clean hotel and rooms, firm but comfortable beds made daily & new towels each day,
- Simple but acceptable decor
- Surrounded outside by shops (great for those shopping for Italian leather, clothes, DeSpar supermarket - there are two nearby), Tabacchi to buy metro/bus tickets is nearby as is pharmacy, medical centre, tourist information.
- Safe location - we were two ladies alone and felt safe
- Staff were pleasant and helpful
- All in all a comfortable hotel
The things we feel let it down slightly were
- The room was small and there was no ventilation in the bathroom, the shower head was just adequate and there were scuff marks around the room
- The breakfast was mainly continental, with not much choice if you are there for a few days, the only hot food (it was just warm though) was scrambled eggs and bacon, but the danishes were nice and tea/coffee machine was ok. There were mini bins on the table but I don't think this looks good at breakfast. The breakfast room was rather dark with no natural light coming in.
- The light in the bathroom stopped working but this was resolved straight away
All in all, we don't feel the minor points matter so much and would detract from us recommending the hotel so we would say it is a good choice for the price and positives about the hotel, especially if you are going for a weekend or a few days. For our first time in Rome, it was a good hotel and with temperatures of 18-20 degrees and sunshine during November, it was a great city break.
Rome is a beautiful city to visit, is easy to get around and for those who love art, architecture, coffee, cobbled streets, smartly dressed Italians and history, will enjoy it. Food is fairly limited compared to eg London, you only get pizza, pasta, baguettes and salads in most restaurants/street vendors, and it is expensive. Try the supermarkets for much cheaper baguettes and snacks as an average meal without drinks is 8-12 euros. We paid 5 euros for a can sized glass of Coke in a restaurant!
