Before I go any further, this hotel was probably in the best location in Rome. Night time when we arrived so wern't really aware of where we were until the morning, and what a great surprise. 5 min walk from the Forum and Colloseum (well we do walk fast), and 10 minute walk from just about everywhere else. Absolutely perfect situation.
The hotel itself looks very impressive on first arriving and the room was spotlessly clean with clean towels each day, however the room we were in overlooked a very spooky disused hotel with old air conditioning units and a dodgy smell so we didn't open the window, in fact we didn't look out as it was so hideous. Shower was brilliant, but the bath to stand in was the width of my foot so if mobility problems then could be tricky. Very small bathroom and couldn't open the door fully because the towel rail and bidet were behind it so if bigger than a size 14 you probably wouldn't squeeze in. However, it was clean and enough towels. we did have a small 'ant' problem but the staff sorted that out quickly. The room wasn't for relaxing, no tea, coffee etc and no view (as mentioned earlier) so consequently after 12 hours walking we didn't want to go back for a rest so we ended up sitting in cafes or on benches until bed time, this was actually a bit of a pain, but we managed. The TV was also a problem, we couldnt work it out, asked the staff who came and helped, but then it was all in Italian !!! too much bother to get him back so we sat staring at the walls for a while until we fell asleep. No noise from our room but thats because we were facing the air conditioning units !!!!.
Breakfast was fine, usual continental fayre, nice coffee, nice bread and cheeses. Overall the hotel was OK but very dated and shabby with a strange smell. . Only met 3 staff who were a little brusque but we wern't there to be friendly and saw no other guests apart from 1, we actually thought the hotel was a bit spooky. Had a great time, wouldn't stay at this hotel again, but it was ok.
