I have to be honest, it did not start well when we first got there. The first day we got there around 1:30 pm local time to check in, they tell us that they were full and would have to move us to another hotel (Hotel Albani Roma). My wife and I were extremely disappointed/annoyed and it showed on our faces. To their defense, the hotel they set us up with wasn't at all bad. In fact, it was better than Hotel Victoria and more modern. It was just a matter of the inconvenience which threw a wrench to our plans for our first day there. We chose Victoria because of its location and Hotel Albani was another 10-15 mins walk away from all the sites we wanted to see. We re-checked-in back to Hotel Victoria and it was the same man that helped us the day before. He was extremely helpful and comp-ed us with a bottle of wine in the room. I'm not saying that this made it up, but it helped. The location was nice & quiet, but it was still close enough to all the tourist sites. The beds were a little hard and the covers were old & rough (so are all the other European hotels). It's an old fashioned hotel and has it charms. Like I said, the hotel is decent & convenient. I would recommend this hotel to our family & friends and that says a lot coming from a New Yorker.
