Hotel stay from Sunday 4 may 2014 to Tuesday 6 may 2014. Upon arrival the receptionist (young female) did not seem very friendly. Check in was very slow. The hotel charges 2 euros per person per day city tax. Having gone to the room allocated to myself and my girl mate we found the bathroom to be in a very poor state as the bath tub was dirty and looked as though it had not been cleaned. Also we were expecting 2 single beds but got one double bed instead. We went back to reception and informed the young female receptionist that the bathroom was dirty and we wanted another room and which also had 2 single beds. The receptionist did not make any attempt to apology for the poor state of the bathroom however she did accommodate our request for another room with 2 single beds. Having gone to the second room allocated to us we found that to be better but my friend noticed hair in the bath tub which was not pleasant. I advised my friend that we should run the shower and rinse the bathroom which is what we did. Then expecting to have a hot shower we were greeted with cold water. I went back to reception and informed the receptionist that the water was cold she proceeded to explain that I had to leave the tap running for ten to fifteen minutes and then the water would become hot. I wasn't convinced but I did this and voila after fifteen minutes of running the shower tap the water was spectacularly hot. I was astonished but very pleased and pleased that we would not have to have cold showers. The hotel does not do currency exchange. There was no wi-fi access for my whole stay as it was not working - not very impressed. Breakfast is cold -2 types of cornflakes and milk, orange juice, tea, coffee, croissants and bread rolls with jam and butter. At night I could hear a lot of noise it sounded as though people were working and it was very hard to go to sleep with all the noise. Location wise the hotel is near many stalls and shops selling souvenirs at very affordable prices. These is also streets and streets of restaurants a stones throw away from the hotel that you have the choice to dine at. There is also newsagents and supermarkets dotted around where you can pick up essentials such as bottles of mineral water.
Sightseeing wise giardini plazza vittorio, santa maria maggiore, colle oppio, domus aurea, the colosseum, palatine hill, trevi fountain, Spanish steps and the Vatican City is all within walking distance. Myself and my friend saw all these places in one day from about 10.15 in the morning to 7pm and then it took about an hour and half to 2 hours walk to get back to the hotel.
