we were quite happy with our stay, staff very pleasant and helpful. The room was functional and comfortable, we had a room at the back of the hotel so had a view of gardens which was fine for us. It was quite a way up near the area where the Embassy's are situated but once we knew where we were we found we could get a bus from Via Septembre which took us into town v easily. You can get an all day bus ticket from any local tabacc (newsagents) which use can use as much as you like all day.
The breakfast was continental but perfectly adequate - rolls,croissants, yoghurts, cereal, some hot food and drinks (i just brought my own tea bags)
we found a great cafe Caffe Piave literally at the end of the road which also has outside (covered)seating. Great waitress there who was very chatty and so helpful. GREAT pizza and desserts. we went back on 3 different evenings for food is was that good.
All in a all we found it to be a serviceable hotel - we just wanted somewhere clean which we could use as a base and to be honest we didn't really spend much time in it so it was fine for us.
I gave the sleep quality average only because the pillow was too hard for me but every evening we slept so well as we'd done so much walking during the day!
some might find the location too far (up the map) but with a bus route around the corner it was fine for us.
