Some of the reviews make this place sound like the rooms are tiny and the bathrooms even smaller but our room (18 on the ground floor) was fine! Just enough room for both our cases and enough hangers in the wardrobe, and the shower had doors and a dip so the bathroom didn't get soaked. However the water in the morning was sometimes cold/lukewarm but this didn't bother us as it was boiling hot outside. Would have liked an iron but then this is only a two star hotel, but it's very much at the top end of two star. Great location, the surrounding area is beautiful, also near the Piazzale Roma and train station, which is v.useful as lots of the water buses stop there.
Breakfast was fine, the lady serving it was very smiley and welcoming! There were warm croissants and soft butter and cheese, and a selection of yoghurts and cereal, AND a choice of different teas and coffees and fruit juices to drink, although I requested hot chocolate and this was also no problem (in fact it was lovely and thick!) You also get three bread rolls per table which we pocketed for lunch!
The air conditioning was easy to control and very much appreciated in the 30 degree heat. The men at reception were pleasant and held our heavy room key for us every day, and held our luggage on our last day before our flight. Reception seems to be open until at least 23.30, possibly 24 hours, though the door is locked after about 23.00 and you can knock to be let in. There were also extra blankets and one extra pillow in the wardrobe, and another guest bathroom near the lobby with toilet, sink and washing machine - useful for when your roommate's taking too long in the bathroom!
The only negative things I'd say are, all the windows were covered in a grate or something so we couldn't see out of them and judge what the weather was like! This might just be on the ground floor though. Also there are many channels on the television but none of them seemed to be in English. Neither of these really inconvenienced us though, and definitely wouldn't put me off staying again.
