Via Veneto has some fabled hotels so the Jumeirah has competition - the front door staff are very good and knowledgable, but we found the reception area to be slow...there were only two staff on duty and they seemed to double as concierges, booking tours for guests and showing them landmarks on a map which was nice of them, but I'd arrived on a long flight and had to spend fifteen minutes at the check-in waiting to be served. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotlessly clean, but one expects that at five star hotels. Only one cake of soap was supplied, so you need to carry it back and forth between shower and hand basin, and no toothbrush or razor was provided although I'm sure if I'd asked for one it would have been delivered. I was disappointed by the breakfast room which was long and narrow, so the food service points create bottle necks and it's hard to work your way through the scrum balancing a plate and a coffee. The breakfast choices weren't impressive...very basic and some items seemed to have run out - like cheese and prosciutto, but then I was late for breakfast and they were due to close in twenty minutes and perhaps they'd decided it wasn't worth replenishing. But those are the things that differentiate the very good hotels from the merely good, so I only gave the Jumeirah four stars. If you want a five star, try the Westin just down the road.
