We arrived in Rome knowing our hotel was about an hour away and we didn't pay for the transfer as it was going to cost £70 each. I googled the price of the tube and train and bus and in the end bought a weeks pass that enabled us to get about on all transport for 48 euros!! for both of us ,, Result. It was an experience and made our holiday having to speak to the locals asking how and where to go. It was august and was extremely hot.
We arrived at the hotel slightly early from the booking time so we checked in and left our bags in the secure room. Then of for a walk to the supermarket for a beer. It is situated right behind the hotel but because we didn't ask this we walked about two miles before we found it.. own fault! As you can imagine 1 beer was not enough!!
The hotel itself we couldn't fault, it was clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly, helpful and most had a sense of humour. Our room had air conditioning which was fab.
The only thing I will say is that the bar at the pool was not open enough. It was the end of August and was red hot so on the days we stayed round the pool refreshments were not available.
We ate in the restaurant two night and found these prices reasonable also. The food was faultless and the menu offered meal deals..
We hope to go back to Rome and would definitely stay here again. We stayed for a week so the pool area was a god send as we got to relax by the pool on the days we weren't spending in central Rome.
Rome itself is just out of this world!! Love it x
