Do not accept room 105!!!! It's dark and poky and is directly above their delivery bay doors into their basement and deliveries from early hours meant that we got no proper sleep until moved to a high floor room for our last night which was light airy and lovely. We had requested a high floor room when booking our holiday after reading a few comments about street noise but our request was ignored.
We were very disappointed as the price and the Cresta brochure pictures suggest better than we got. The same room rate at a london hotel would be a UK travellers idea of luxury but falls vastly short in Rome - which is very expensive all round.
The reception staff were helpful, the breakfast excellent and the terrace bar was a great place to chill after lots of walking around Rome. Apart from our specific problem with the ground floor room it was in a quiet neighbourhood so sleep was great once we were moved.
