Not at all a 5star hotel!it seems a modern hotel but its not.we took this impression upon arrival when we used the bathroom allocated at reception....dirty and wash hand basin falling into pieces.
The 1st room we were allocated on the 7th floor was fine..but on the first night we had water dripping from the ceiling and this was quite dangerous as it was close to the tv plug.First thing in the morning we told reception and she promised us that all will be sorted,returned back in the eve and nothing was done.Went back and there was a guy which was not helpful at all..we were shown another room and this was really a cramped room on the 2nd floor ...we had no choice as this was the only room they had available,besides being too small the bathroom smelled of humidity.
For a 5star hotel bfast was nothing special....When we asked the waitress for whole meal bread the answer we got was that they don't have any!!Do you call this a 5star hotel?? Not even a 4star!!For sure we won't recommend it!!

A perfect location for a holiday or business trip to Rome and to visit the interesting and historic sites. At entrance of the hotel there is that1950's Vespa scooter in impeccable mint condition, and most of the hotel is perfect up to the roof where visitors can enjoy a marvelous breakfast buffet with great panoramic views over Rome. Service comes with a smiling perfection and personal attention.

The people at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The facilities are very modern and clean. We had a small problem with a shower door, but that's all. Breakfast was not included, but was very good, with excellent selections at the buffet. The location is convenient to restaurants and many of the sights. For Rome, the value was excellent.

We stayed at La Griffe for 2 nights at the end of a cruise. The plus point is its location: right on the Via Nazionale so very convenient for all the sites and within walking distance of some great restaurants. It is located in a lovely old Italian building but unfortunately that is where the Italian atmosphere ends. Inside it has been re-furbished to an ultra modern standard with a black and red colour scheme throughout. Even the corridors on the bedroom floors are painted a dark grey - walls, floors and ceilings. Our room was small, which was fine as we have become used to this in Italian city hotels. But the décor and the fact there was no carpet or rugs meant that the room was really not comfortable at all. Lighting was particularly poor. On the plus side, the bathroom was large and very functional. Service was ok although when we returned at 3pm our room had not been cleaned. Some people will love this hotel for its décor and ultra modern feel. Others, like us, will hate it.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the Via Nazionale suffer from traffic noise.

NOT a 5 star hotel, (how are these ratings produced, anyways?) Where do I start....
TV did not work,
key card system did not work properly, had to get staff twice to open it
WIFI limited and poor, but found way to steal other rooms wifi allotments
room VERY small, for the price they charge you would expect room for a chair maybe?
bathroom offered no privacy, best described as a translucent fishbowl, no proper walls
No computer access for guests, had to wait in line to use concierge computer and printer
breakfast was OK, nothing special, B&B style I guess,
shower leaked all over floor when used
staff polite by Italy's standards, but not 5 star
although not their fault, the amount of emergency vehicles blasting down the street and the volume made you feel like you were next to a siren testing facility
could go on but......like I said NOT 5 star, not recommended.

Room Tip: don't get room with fishbowl style bathroom, avoid front of hotel due sirens
