We booked the Marri 2 hotel for a long weekend near to Rome's tourist attractions. It's tucked down a rather scruffy back street and on arrival by hire car, we struggled to find parking, eventually squeezing in down the street from the hotel; we lugged our bags to the hotel. We waited some time for a room allocation, then were sent up to the top (4th) floor. There was no lift and no help and the staircase became more and more like a Turkish prison as we climbed - rusty steel doors, rubbish in the stairwell, dirty walls.
Inside the room was clean and modern but really small, one of those rooms where you need to go outside to turn round. My girlfriend ran the sink for a wash and promptly flooded the bathroom floor - the sink drain leaked copiously! We asked to change our room but the man on the desk appeared to have no authority to do anything and had to phone the owner for every decision. After some trouble convincing the management that there was a problem, we eventually were promised another room, which had yet to be serviced but which we could move into later in the day. We were told to report back at 14:00. We did a little sightseeing and reported back at 14:15 to be chastised for turning up late. Eventually we were shown our new room, even smaller than the first but , fortunately, with no leaking sink.
Breakfast is taken in another building over the road, and it's mediocre.
1. Funny if you have a sense of humour for this sort of hotel.
2. Near to several of Rome's tourist attractions by foot.
1. Rude staff with poor or no English.
2. Miserable location in a dirty street and scruffy outlook from the rooms' windows.
3. Difficult and limited parking
4. Tiny rooms, (at least the two we saw)
5. No lift
6. Poor value for money, even for a 1 Star hotel.
