Rome is generally a place one goes either for business or for sightseeing. Either way, a Holiday Inn Express fits the bill nicely. The problem with Rome is that the coverage offered by the Metro is minimal, so finding a nice, affordable hotel within 10 minutes walk of a Metro station is a real challenge. The good news is that it is well satisfied by this hotel.
Check-in was a joy, the pleasant receptionist spoke good English, was well informed about the City and made us feel immediately welcome. Our rooms were a reasonable size, certainly adequate as a base for three nights from which to see the sights. The beds were comfortable (there is a choice of pillows), the rooms spotlessly clean, and the bathrooms well equipped with the usual sanitary ware, including a Bidet.
Regular guests of Holiday Inn Express know that there are usually no frills, such as tea/coffee-making facilities, in-room bar, trouser press, room service and suchlike. But there is here a decent bar (with a Happy Hour that includes food), and a good breakfast choice.
If you book your Taxi to the airport through Reception, it will save you €10 off the fare!
All in all, we found this hotel up to Holiday Inn's predictably high standard.
