Pros: great price. That's it. Moving on to the more important stuff.
Cons: everything that you can imagine could go wrong, went wrong. First, our bathroom was most definitely NOT as depicted in the pictures. We did not have a full shower... Simply a shower head in the middle of the bathroom and a flimsy curtain. Second, the hairdryers are a complete joke. If you're male, then you can probably live with it. But my girlfriend could not dry her hair with that pathetic of a medieval looking device. I had to ask the front desk for a hairdryer, and the nice gentleman seemed prepared for the request since he had one right next to him. Third, the toilets are designed for giants. I stand at 5'9" and my feet barely touched the floor.
The best was yet to come. Our bed had one sheet and one flimsy bed cover that was more of a bed sheet. I thought this would be enough, but in the middle of the night I had to wake up the front desk clerk to request an additional bed sheet. Finally, power problems plagued the hotel in the last night of our stay. Lights flickered on and off for a full two hours. It was so annoying that we had to leave our room door open to let in the light from the corridor. But even better, we were identified as the source of the power problem. Apparently, my laptop was causing these so called power problems, even though I had it plugged in for two other days without a problem. After they seemed to have fixed the power problems, the next morning we discovered that the power in our room had been limited since the hairdryer we had been loaned was not working with its full power. As such, my girlfriend spent the morning and afternoon walking the streets of Rome with wet her hair. I apologized to her for booking the worst of the four hotels we had booked during our stay in Italy.
So, I'm not sure if the good reviews are simply ancient and the hotel has now taken on a new trend, or if I was just incredibly unlucky. You be the judge, but I would avoid at all costs.
