When we arrived we were told off by the staff member who let us in as we were 'late' and he had apparently been waiting for us all day despite the fact that my fiance had completed the section on the bookings.com website saying what time we would arrive (and according to that we were on time). He showed us to our room then asked us if we had any questions because he was going to leave. That was the last we saw of him for our 3 night stay!!
Once he had left (the room, and the hotel) I went to put my toileteries in the bathroom and it smelt so bad! I think maybe there was something wrong with the plumbing because the smell seemed to come from the sink. Despite having the door and nearby window open throughout our stay the smell didn't get any better. It made me gag everytime I went in! However, we were unable to inform the staff because we didn't see them!!
The bed was a small double and unfortunately the feather duvet was getting a bit old so the feathers were sticking through which made it very scratchy.
The positives - the location was close to the termini station and therefore close to the metro and the room was a good size.
