Smart Reception Area - but a quite unfriendly man on reception - not welcoming at all. Other staff friendly and helpful.
Good location for seeing all the major sites of Rome - but although on a side street - very noisy. If you have a front room (which we did) traffic/street noises until at least 2.00 am. Breakfast OK but nothing special.
Room small and shabby (spent as little time as possible in room) and the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on - it was wide but short - I am only 5'5" and my feet hung over the end of the bed! The mattress was so lumpy (protruding springs) that I woke every morning with sore hips! Needs replacing - the mattress I mean - not my hips!! Only 1 hard upright chair to sit on so one of us had to sit on the bed - and no public lounge area. Spent as little time as possible in room - too busy site seeing and eating out.
Non-existent sound-proofing between rooms - TV, toileting noises, guests talking and on 4th night was kept awake by snoring virtually all night by person in room next door - could not drown noise out even with pillow over my head!!
No spare electric socket. In order to charge up my mobile phone I had the choice of dragging the fridge away from the wall to access a socket (at floor level) which meant unplugging the fridge & TV; or dragging the bed away from the wall to unplug the bedside lamp!!!
Nice shower room - very clean - room service could not fault.
The fridge was damaged and didn't seem to be working anyhow - door taped up.Broken glass in picture on wall (dangerous). Curtain tie backs taped up with sticky tape! Chipped bedside cabinet.
Having said this we had a great time in Rome but would not recommend nor return to this hotel.
