We stayed for 9 nights in mid-October at the Cosmopolita. As mentioned in previous reviews, the biggest advantage of this hotel is its superior location. Taxis were used only twice....to get to the Bargello and St. John Lateran, from which we leisurely strolled back. We walked to all the other major venues and felt we were in the heart of it all (...and we were.....between the Emanuel Monument and Trevi Fountain!)
Kudos to the service at the desk from Max, Alessandro and Chris, which was warm, helpful and most friendly. The rooftop deck offered views of either the Forum or St. Peter's and was a perfect spot for a meal of wine, bread and cheese around sunset. Breakfasts were offered on the second floor daily, but not included in the cost of the room. Good assortment of standard buffet foods. Bed sheets were changed daily.
Our disappointment was in the room and its cleanliness. The floors under the bed hadn't been cleaned in some time, the bathroom (miniscule in size) needed new grout on the walls, and in the shower especially, and there was virtually no view from the window. It faced onto the mechanical hub on the roof, allowing for almost no natural light.
Had the location not been soooo convenient, I am not sure we would have stayed the full 9 evenings. Also, beware of wine prices at the adjoining bar. Eight euros for a short pour seemed pretty extravagant in comparison to every other location where we sipped!
