is ideally located for exploring Palatine Hill & Roman Forum - but just lacks warmth and style.
Travelling on my own, on business, the hotel was satisfactory. The self service breakfast is purely a functional affair and dinner served in the same room doesn't feel much better.
It's worth noting also that room service finishes relatively early in the evening, and it's not worth asking for something quick/easy shortly after the cut off time -which is a shame as there is no tea/coffee facility in the room.
