The hotel is in a "Red light" district, some distance away from the nearest Metro terminus. We found a distinct lack of places to eat at night other than the odd cafe/bar style food. There was a recommended place next door however most of the menu was crossed off & priced high. The "free" mini shuttle bus to the metro was charged for on the final bill!! We found the sights of Rome wonderful ...but watch out for "pickpockets" we were robbed of my wallet cash & cards, police said it is common. Taxi drivers say they have no meters & charge almost twice the proper fee to tourists. Be prepared to queue for 2-3 hours to see the Vatican which is miles away from the hotel. Overall the hotel is in an industrial area well away from the centre of Rome so most of the day is spent traveling to & fro on filthy overcrowded graffiti smitten underground systems .
On the positive side the most helpful member of staff being the multi lingual barman who was so helpful & knowledgeable (Diran)
We would not return to such an out of town place, our nights were spoiled not being able to enjoy evenings in Rome!!!
We did loose some clothes too? & if late to your breakfast 8-30am no orange juice or bread left. (breakfast opens & closes 6.30 -10 am)
