Reception and bar staff were very friendly. The public areas are carpeted with settees (albeit a bit uncomfortable for those of us who lack height due to the very lengthy cushioned seats!) and have rich curtain fabric. The bedroom was very acceptable - large comfortable bed, reasonable size, with modern and clean bathroom. Pity about the small bath (didn't bother me at 5ft 0 1/2 but my husband of 6ft lasted only 5 minutes in it - he who normally loves a really good soak!). Pity also, but not essential, that the 2 English speaking TV channels were not tuned in.
Breakfast was OK - ample supply of cold ham, cheese, bread, rolls and cakes (none of which I like but husband loves). 3 different yogurts and tinned fruit also available (I would have preferred fresh fruit salad but understand the time it takes to do this. Unfortunately the coffee and hot water were lukewarm, and the breakfast room was over crowded on 2 of the 3 mornings we were there as 2 bus groups were attempting to breakfast at the same time. Staff in the breakfastroom were efficient - the lady in charge perhaps a bit brusque. The hotel had cooked a set meal for us on the first evening (beware if you are vegetarian in Italian hotels - omelettes seem to be equated with vegitarianism!) and it was OK.
WiFi is not free but room safe is.
Hotel is located quite a way from the centre of Rome, so is ideal for coach tours. Not ideal for individual travellers unless coming by car.
