We did not have a good experience with rhome86, which is disappointing because we had booked it due to the good reviews here on tripadvisor.
My wife and I had booked for only one night, where we requested, and received confirmation, that we would be arriving at 9am. After a 40 hour transit from Aus via HK, we arrived to be told that there was no room ready, AND that they had booked us in for one person in a single room. We were told that the room would not be ready until later that afternoon, to which we questioned why the room wasn’t ready. We were told check in time was 2pm, so we showed them the email confirmation we had printed saying we would be there at 9am. This obviously didn’t change the fact that the rooms were already occupied by other guests. We were told we could leave our bags and wander Rome for 6 hours, which was not an appealing option after having taken 40 hours to get there. We asked how early they could have the room available, so she then knocked on the door of one of the guests to ask when he was leaving, which woke him up…I wouldn’t have been very happy if that was me.
My wife then spoke to the owner on the phone, who was very rude and not compromising at all, making us pay the full rate despite the fact that they did not have a room for us. We left and had to book into another hotel around the corner, costing us even further.
