We were two couples traveling north from Rome, and we booked here for a one-night stop-over after reading that it was convenient to reach from the highway without going into the city center, and offered free, secure parking. Even though our GPS sent us correctly, the building is set well back from the road and without clear signage at night. We passed by and had a drive on curving, dark roads finding our way back.
Upon arrival, the desk clerk was very helpful and offered to take the luggage trolley down to the garage for us, and the night porter helped to make sure our van would fit underneath the door without scraping.
Once checked in, one of our room keys (swipe cards) did not work at all, and the other couple's did not work to activate the lights in the room. However, the problems were all worked out after about 15-minutes. The only other issue was we could not access the wireless internet from the room. The desk clerk was helpful in booking us a taxi, etc. (taxi 10 EU to center).
The bathroom was clean and had a nice shower and a small granite vanity. It seems the hotel made a mistake and charged each of us an extra 60 Euros, but said they realized it and would correct it. It was fine for a short stop-over and a very reasonable price (62 Euros) including locked parking, Internet, and breakfast that was pretty good, including scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, peanut butter, breads, honey, cheese, meats, good orange juice, etc.
