The hotel was hard to find, despite having the address written down, we were beginning to think we had been ripped off and that the hotel did not exist as there was no visible signage. Once we found the buzzer by the closed door we were directed to reception on the 2nd floor - we chose not to use the lift as it looked dangerous. We were disppointed to find the facilities in our room did not match those on the confirmation printout - we certainly DID NOT have the Alarm Clock, CD Player, DVD Player, Flat Screen TV, Slippers or MP3 Player listed. And our fridge was not working, and the shrug of the shoulders that we were given when we pointed this out did not stop our food going off. The staff ranged from good to useless, depending on who was on duty. The breakfast was the worst we came across in Italy, being a very limited choice and stale. The breakfast room itself was tiny, and sitting down and getting things to eat was an awkward exercise even if you could find an empty table. The luggage room did not exist - we left our bags in the corridor beside the reception desk, along with several other guests. We tried to use the PC in the lobby to check in onine for our return flight, but the internet would not connect - the staff member on duty was watching cricket on the hotel PC at the time, so this may have had something to do with it. Again the response was a shrug of the shoulders. The bed was one of the most uncomfortable we came across during our travel through Italy.
On the plus side, our room was a good size, with large windows which opened onto the street below, and it was clean. The hotel was convenient for sightseeing, though it was a reasonable walk to The Vatican City, etc. But there was plenty to look at on the way. We stayed for three nights, which we had pre-paid, but would have rather paid a little more to get the facilities as advertised, and listed on our confirmation, somewhere else.
