For a city centre hotel, the rooms were very spacious. The beds were large, but a bit on the hard side. There was plenty of storage space - the usual cupboard with hangers and shelves, plus safe. The tea/coffee making facilities in the room were very welcome, and the mini-bar/fridge was handy for storing proper milk - much better than the "creamer" provided. Good bathroom with plenty of hot water from shower. The heated mirror was a nice touch - no steaming up.
We had a bedroom at the front of the hotel, and there was quite a lot of traffic noise at night, then the early morning bin collection, but this was mainly because we had the windows open. The air conditioning was a bit erratic, and the room got very hot (but very quiet!) with the windows closed.
The staff were very welcoming and helpful, but their recommendations were not as good as hoped. We looked at the restaurant they suggested, but preferred our own "find" - Naumachia, just around the corner. Also, they suggested the "Green Line" hop-on hop-off bus, which we weren't very impressed with. It didn't keep to the route, missed stops, the commentary was very poor, and the map indicating the bus stops was inaccurate and not to scale.
Breakfast on the roof was a great start to the day, with a reasonable selection of hot/cold buffet, with fresh fruit and typically Italian over-sweet pastries, and various bread rolls etc.
Just around the corner was the fascinating Basilica di San Clemente - well worth a visit, but check opening times for the underground tour. And just behind that, Ciuri Ciuri served the best ice creams.
