I stayed here with my family and after you get over the age of the facility and the attitude of the evening time concierge, it was really nice. Upon arrival there was confusion between the booking company and what the reservation was for, but the owners of the hotel rectified everything. Internet was unavailable in our room due to a technical problem and would not be repaired for several days due to a holiday and weekend. To gain internet access I just bundled up in my coat hat and gloves and sat in the lobby of the hotel and logged on to play trip events and look up tours. This part was not fun, I later corrected the problem by rebooting their wireless access point located in the hallway. They can send me the bill for touching their equipment, it was beginning to interfere with my vacation, and was well worth doing.
The hotel is not all that stroller friendly however they offered to keep the child's stroller in the lobby luggage area, so all we had to do was take our child out and carry him up stairs. There is an elevator to use in the hotel, however is inaccessible from the ground floor. You must enter the elevator from the 1st floor to get to the upper levels. We did not use it however it looked to be about a 2 person capacity.
The breakfast contract they have with the cafe across the street is AWESOME. The staff at the cafe accepted the voucher from the Abruzzi with a smile and again offered us a 15% off coupon for another mean because we stayed at the Abruzi.
The hotel is perfectly situated to see the square outside and the Pantheon. The square has a few crazy people outside at any given time but the cops patrol the area quite frequently. There are vendors who sell light up toys and umbrellas on rainy days in the event you lost yours on the way to your room.
Outside our room, a professional singer seemed to stroll around at 21:00 on Saturday and Sunday and serenade the crowds. I am not certain if he did this for fun or money, but it was AMAZING and we watched from our room at the Abruzzi.
Upon checkout I asked that we be able to store our luggage in the lobby until it was time to leave. The hotel was happy to assist and the staff is very friendly. They even printed out my boarding cards for our upcoming flight.
Loud knocking on the walls a 22:00 each night. Speculate on what it was, you may be correct. Only lasted for a few minuets but was enough to wake up our toddler and us enough to have to fall back asleep.
I would stay here again for the location alone, but the friendliness and quality of the room (for what we paid) was great!
