We stayed for 2 nights in July for our wedding anniversary and hoped for a bit of luxury in the city centre of Rome so we didn't need to spend time travelling as weren't there for long. Location next to Termini Station was handy for metro, trams and bus to airport, however, it was still a bit of a walk to get to the sights and in a bit of a run-down area, you wouldn't expect a 5 star hotel here. Colosseum, palatine hill and forum are within easy 15 mins walk but Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain are about 30 mins walk away.
Reception staff were friendly and check-in/out process was fine. Hotel rooms were very small and strange layout. Very modern but not practical. Tiny balcony but no furniture. No cupboards or space to put anything.
The pool area on the top floor is the best part of this hotel - it's excellent. Lovely relaxing pool area, well kept and perfect to chill out and catch some sun after sightseeing in the Italian sun. I was disappointed in being asked to get out of the pool when there was a little light rain (hardly a spit). The bar/restaurant had a great menu (although a little pricey) but we did not dine here. In Rome you will not go hungry - there are lots of lovely cafes and restaurants at every corner serving delicious Italian cuisine.
We also picked this hotel because of it's Spa and fitness facilities as were hoping to treat ourselves for our anniversary. We were extremely disappointed that this part was closed during our trip for renovation - something planned that guests should have been told about. We would've probably picked another hotel if we were told this.
Overall we had a fantastic stay in Rome but slightly disappointed in our hotel, not the luxurious 5 star hotel we were after.
