I recently stayed at this hotel with my friend for five days. When we pulled up, I was astonished that the hotel was as nice as it actually was considering the amount of money that I had paid. I was instantly pleased. The inside reception area was very lovely, clean and very professional looking. We were sent to our room, which was ideal for the two of us. It was clean and very very comfortable. I liked the idea of the sliding metal shutters, as they shut out the rain and the daylight when we felt like having a lazy morning!!!
The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful. I dont think we would have visited half the places we did if it wasnt for Lisa. She was really lovely and helpful.
The breakfast was pleasant and suprising! I was a bit dubious about "continental breakfast" (i think thats what it said!) but it was lovely. my friend throughoughly enjoyed the salami and cheese every morning but im not ready to experiance that kind of taste sensation at 8am so i stuck to breads, cereals, croissants and yoghurts.
The rooms were clean and comfrotable. The shower was wonderful and powerful and we had fresh towels and sheets everyday.
I think this is a wonderful hotel. Even though it is out of the way a little bit (its about 20 minutes on the bus and metro to central rome), I found the Euroma2 literally being a stone throw away a god send. We never had nothing to do and the food court was sublime. We tried to try every restaurant if we could - not only was the food good the shopping experiance was too. I got lost many a time due to the vastness of the place!! But you never got bored there and there was always something to do!
It's a beautiful city and Im so glad I chose this hoteL I will definately be back and will certainly make arrangements to stay in this hotel again. When we were going around central Rome, I was quite disappointed with the state of the shell of most of the hotels I saw (they looked extremely run down) so I was quite pleased that we had chosen a hotel a little out of the way, which was perfect for our needs.
I didnt give it a 5 star however because we did have one issue when we were staying there. It wasnt so much the hotel or the staff but the noisy people that were above us. We were staying in room 104 and on our last night, they constantly were pulling a chair across the floor (which seemed tiled!?). I couldnt understand this as our room was carpeted but it was relentless.. We heard it in the morning so I assumed that maybe it was the cleaners but it was all through the night as well. It got worse on our last night at the hotel as it was driving me insane and I just couldnt sleep and had an early flight to catch the next morning.
So that was really my only fault; yet it was nothing to do with the staff or hotel.
I hghly recommend it.
