I recently visited this hotel with my husband. It was a surprise 60th birthday present for him from our two daughters. They booked through Secret Escapes and luckily it turned out to be a little gem of a hotel. There have been some negative comments on this site about the area being a bit dodgy due to a few prostitutes hanging around along the road, but the girls never made us feel threatened in any way. The area is mainly residential and the road is busy so we didn't feel at all worried about walking along it often quite late at night. The hotel is brightly lit, with modern high standard furnishings and absolutely spotless. The reception staff are all very friendly and helpful. The bar area has a central bar and comfortable white leather sofas. The service was always efficient and drinks were served up with a dish of complimentary nuts. Breakfast is excellent so much choice, they have literally thought of everything. You are able to just wander in and sit where you like. Staff were again all friendly.
Our room was on the fourth floor and at the front of the hotel, but the noise from the road didn't disturb us at all, if you are sensitive to road noise it would be best to ask for a rear facing room.
The room was a superior one with a balcony and smallish, but it was decorated to a very high standard with a really comfortable bed but after walking around all day maybe I was just tired!
We did have some issues with the shower head which wasn't secured properly the water came out with such force it fell off and flooded the bathroom! We had the problem sorted promptly.
The basin is lovely to look at but not very practical, the plug stays up so you have to leave the water running. We also had a problem with the safe, when we tried to open it, it wouldn't. We reported it to reception and literally two minutes later they had sent some one to sort it out for us. Toilet tissue was renewed every day, even when there was plenty left. Towels also changed daily.
The hotel is situated within a five minute walk of Marconi Metro station, we bought an inexpensive three day pass and travelled all over the city with it, The trains actually run on time here about every three minutes! Several people have commented that there is nowhere to eat locally but we found two great places. I can't remember the name of one but if you come out of the hotel, turn right and are prepared for a fifteen minute walk there is a little trattoria which we didn't get to until 11pm due to late flight, we were warmly greeted and had a great little pasta and plenty of wine. The place was buzzing with local people all very friendly. The other place we found was across the road from the hotel and first left, don't be put off by the fact that this road is a slip road to the motorway and looks like there is nothing on it if you have faith and keep going, on the left hand side is a very big restaurant built on the site of a monastery which is called (something like) ' Il Convento'. Again it was full of locals with some very large family gatherings on huge tables, they seemed quite amazed that two tourists had actually found it. Service is very friendly served by waiters in monks outfits! Has a good choice on menu, the pizzas were gorgeous with a very thin crispy base, wine good too. Good value for money. So you can find places to eat if you look hard enough!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Pulitzer has 83 double rooms including 1 junior suite. The style is chic & glamour due to the use of luxury materials and finishes, starting from the flooring in Wenge coloured wood that matches the colour of the fabrics and furnishings ranging from white to black, and taking in shades of brown to create a warm, welcoming and cozy atmosphere. The bathrooms of the rooms are a modern interpretation of the 1920s New York style using small ceramic tiles, in this case in black, which go well with the Wenge wood flooring and the contemporary style sanitary fixtures. ... more less
