This hotel has a fabulous location only a few minutes walk from the colosseum but we had such a terrible experience when we arrived that I would not recommend it to anyone. I arrived with 3 young children at 1.30 in the morning in the middle of a festival in the street full of dense, drunk crowds. We were sent off to find the apartment which was 500meters away but we couldn't find it and I was very frightened of loosing my children in the crowds, I found it hard to carry all my bags through so many people and was worried about my bag being snatched as we had received many warnings about pick pockets in Rome. When I returned the man on reception refused to help me and was very rude. I was too scared to go out again so I said we would sit in reception until morning when it was safe. The man said I had to sit next door in a bar and when I refused we said I was a bad mother and a bad example to my children and I should sit where I was told. I explained I had just paid him over 1500 euros and he yelled "people pay much more than that now sit in the bar next door not in here and do what I tell you to do" when he realised I was not going to move he eventually took us to our room but this was 40 minutes after we arrived and he was shouting at us so loudly both myself and my children where very shaken and unable to sleep. I complained the next morning to the manager but he never got back to me. The room was also very noisy as theappartment next door were loud through the night and the walls were paper thin.
