Beware of sneaky deals between Hotel Arlecchino, Best Western and Expedia. My wife and I booked an economy, double bed room at Arlecchino for 1 night to wait for our flight back to Toronto from the Princess Cruise through Expedia and upon checking in we were informed that our room is an "annex" and is located in the hotel next door. We could not find any such indication on our Expedia confirmation paperwork and the clerk went to great lengths to match the word "annex" on his papers to the word "exterior" on our paperwork. Apparently when you book an exterior, economy room at Arlecchino they put you in the Best Western Olympia hotel next door.
Ironically the same thing happened to us two weeks prior to this incident in Rome, where we were redirected from Hotel Best Roma to another Best Western hotel in the neighborhood due to a "gas leak". Must be an Italian hotel conspiracy....
Surprisingly the room at Best Western Olympia turned out to be not so bad, but more on that in another review for Hotel Olympia.
