Pros - Good location near Termini station, friendly staff, decent functional room amenities, very cosy 'drawing room' or living room for those who are not familiar with the term
Cons - bathroom is in need of maintenance*, room can feel outdated, standard room is on the small side (normal for Rome)
*The bathroom was very aged for a 4 star hotel, rust, mould and watermarks on wall, corners of the shower base and toilet.
I had no real issues staying at the hotel, given the staff were friendly, although I didn't spend much time at the hotel during my 4 night stay. For a 4 star hotel, the state of the bathroom was very disappointing and off-putting for the perception of the cleanliness of the room.
I hope management will make an effort to fix the bathroom, as this would make the hotel closer to the acclaimed 4 star status.
Top tip - The hotel does provide duvets, so if initially there is just a duvet cover (I guess due to summer weather?) Then request for a duvet.
