After a very long flight, all you want to do is get into your room, and wash your face, brush your teeth and stretch out on a big bed before tackling the city. I don't know why and I did not argue, but they got us in well before standard check in. I am sure the corner room with no view helped that process. The room was very ornate, but huge.. really huge. The hotel is not that big, but it does have a feeling of being grand.
I still have no idea how to run the room AC or heat, but was never in there long enough to really worry. If it was hot, I opened the window (if you leave the window open when you leave the room, they magically know and close it while your out), and if it was cool, the room heats up fast. The bathroom was big and had all the amenities. And the walk in closet was just plain dreamy.
The location was great for walking to everything. Italy was a very quick trip on our way to the next destination, but we squeezed in as much as we could. The hotel was placed just right for all of the adventures and the concierge and front desk were wonderful and helpful.
The breakfast was very good and on the first morning the service was perfect, the second was pretty good, and I am not sure they knew we were there by the last morning.
The other odd thing was the night lock down. We had a late dinner and then walked back to the hotel. We did not think it was that late, but the doors were locked. There were a few "ladies of the night" handing round on the corner across the street so perhaps this is done for security, but lights were out, and doors were locked. We rattled the doors and after a few, a security person opened the doors and let us in. Never actually asked us room numbers or checked for keys, just let us in and locked the doors behind us. I just thought that odd.
This hotel would have perfect score if not for the night watchman, room ac/heat unit, and the breakfast slacking. The staff were wonderful, the hotel very nice, breakfast was great, the room clean and large. Clearly Rome was so amazing the hotel issues were minor in comparison.
