As per other reviewers, the hotel is ideally located in the heart of Rome. The rooms are stylish, with elegant design. We stayed for 5 nights start of April in a Junior suit, room, 302. The room had a fantastic shower/ steam room, big bathroom and nice jacuzzi bath. The room was cleaned daily to high standard. Slippers provided but no dressing gowns.
Noise - As per other reviewers the noise outside at some points is unbearable... it can get so noisy that you think the windows are open but they are all closed. During the day not a problem, but when the bin men come around at 01:00 for around 45 mins daily your night sleeps are disturbed. I have stayed i many city centre hotels ( for business and pleasure), and afraid to report this was probably the worse for noise... if the hotel could do something about the sound proofing of the Windows this would really help.
Aircon - The room was hot - We wanted to turn down the aircon but it didn't seem to work. Reception informed us that during the winter months its not in aircon mode, but room ambient mode, i.e if it falls below a certain temp the it would heat, but would not cool... suggestion... open the windows... during the day fine, but as per noise note above not a great solution. Everyone has there only preferred temperate, thus seems a bit silly for the units to be looked to seasonal modes.
Staff - Great welcome and staff always willing to help. The only thing i say is that they need to keep consistency in approach to ensure continued high standard service. I.e asking for where we could get an umbrella from only to be told no shops open... however a good tip would be to say people sell them on every street corner. Or a good extra would be to provide Hotel umbrellas.
All in all, great hotel, just needs to tweet a few things to get to that 5 star feel.
