Firstly this hotel is not within walking distance to the main city. When we arrived the front desk was unhelpful and blunt giving no useful information and gave terrible directions to nearby restaurants (we had to ask locals on the way we were so lost).
The room was very dark and the key and lock were dodgey to say the least. It was not a double, merely 2 single beds wedged together and there were not many channels at all.
Breakfast was atrocious. There was no hot food, the fruit was mouldy, juice was extremely sour and one waiting staff so the milk remained empty for a long time. Also as a buffet, plates on tables were piling up but nobody came to clear them whilst we were eating which was unprofessional.
There was limited seating at breakfast and half way through the air conditioning was leaking causing a huge puddle and there was no wet sign displayed after just wiping away the water which could have been dangerous!
All in all this hotel was very basic and not a 4* but if you want to be outside of Rome in a cheap basic hotel feel free to book it.
