This was a trip, three nights, to celebrate our 40th wedding aniversiary coming back to Rome which we visited on our honeymoon. The service from the staff was excellent and the hotel shuttle was a great help to get in to town but the drop-off point was still a good bit from the attractions of Rome. I had booked via Secret Escapes who had booked a 'superior room'. The reception confirmed this on arrival and although the room was quite good it looked nothing like the superior room on the hotel website! We were placed in a room on the fourth floor beside the lift which was quite noisy at times particularly around 7-00am so ensure you don't get room 427. Also the view from the room was non-existent looking on to the rear of apartments opposite and their balconies full of rubbish. This was visible from below the outside window shutter which was permanently down.
We had some trouble finding the hotel on arrival from the airport and we were exhausted when we reached the hotel and looking forward to a rest. Because of this I forgot to mention the complimentary afternoon tea and museum entrance which was part of our booking with Secret Escapes and as the receptionist keep our Secret Escapes confirmation I never gave it another thought. I would have expected the reception to mention this, which they did not, inclining me to think what was the reason for holding on to the confirmation. Overall the stay at the Duke was fairly good but it is a bit far out for the attractions and being 40 years older since our last
visit to Rome was at times very tiring in the 33 degree hit.
