We were booked into this hotel as part of a school's rugby tour which was visiting Rome - the boys were in a 3* and the lucky parents were put into this hotel as it was a 4*.
Not sure where the star ratings come from, but it was a very poor advert for the starring system! On arrival we discovered that most of the other parents had already checked out and gone somewhere else! We were given a key to our room which was on the 5th floor - the door would not shut unless we locked it and even then it was a struggle and there was barely any room to get the 2 suitcases in, nevery mind 2 people. The bathroom was tiny and the shower difficult to get into although to be fair the water was hot. The towels were minute and had holes in.
Breakfast consisted of a coffee machine which made the most disgusting coffee, which had a rather nasty scum on top of it, and the croissants were fairly dry. Jam to help these along was either pink or orange in colour, but certainly not anything in taste! We lasted 2 nights here before checking out and going to join the other parents in a much better 4* hotel!
