It is super-expensive, at least it was for us. It is supposedly four stars, but doesn't compare with a three star hotel in New York. The rooms are tiny and I know that the rooms are on the small side in Europe, but this was maybe 100 to140 square feet at a cost of $1400 for four nights, not including breakfast. I think that it was the worst hotel buy of my life. We couldn't unpack as the closet was smaller than either of our suitcases and was equipped with three hangers. We arrived in Rome, waited hours for the room and then spent four days trying to avoid spending time in our small, dark cave. The cabin on the Ruby Princess for our 12 day Mediterranean cruise was more than twice the size of this room, included food, and didn't cost much more than twice what we paid to camp here. I was overwhelmed by the TripAdvisor reviews, which are usually dead on accurate, but I didn't find the reviews for this hotel to be close to the money. We stayed in some five star hotels, including Chancery Court in London, Marriott Elysees in Paris, Eurostars Grand Marina in Barcelona and Sofitel Lisbon and this hotel isn't half as good as any of them in terms of value, room size, etc.
Yet, this is a very nice hotel if you can book it for a couple hundred bucks a night and don't plan on spending much time in the room. I think that at $600-$800 for four nights, in Rome, it is fair. I say this because the front desk people are very attentive and nice, the bellmen are very outgoing. The cleaning people go out of their way to greet and the people who work in the bar/restaurant, both on the roof and in the breakfast dining area, are super friendly and professional. The dark cave aspect provides good sleep quality as well. And the couple of free beers per day were a really nice touch, but at the price that we paid, this hotel shouldn't be competing. The Hotel Tritone in Mestre, on our way to Venice, cost about $150 per night, is billed as four stars, Italy style, and was much nicer and roomier, just as a comparison. Me thinks that we need some crowd control in TA.
