Um - so, this area is not the best area near/around Rome. For the love of God please, please do not take a bus to get here from city center. I repeat - DO NOT take the bus (trust me - we lived it). Pay the taxi fare - how ever expensive and over priced it may be and ensure you are dropped off directly at the doors. The neighborhood surrounding this place is not one you would want to visit. Due to this fact - I believe this is why the hotel grounds and the hotel itself are so wonderful.
This is a grand hotel - cool pool area, great pizza, large lobby bar, huge mural paintings on the ceilings, gorgeous rooms with swank amenities and decor - list goes on and on. I was sad that we only had one night here, but it was definitely the way to end our trip to Italy.
I think this hotel would be good for large groups using tour buses or motor coaches to get in and out of the city or spring-boarding into some other Italian cities. It is not close to city center and the individual taxi fares to get there would make this an economical nightmare as Rome is very expensive and taxis find every way to take you the "long way" to get more money out of you - it's disguised as if they are showing you all the attractions, but they are just running up the meter and it is already expensive - give us a break! It's not all that close to the airport either but thy do run a shuttle - it will cost you though, I think it's 10 Euro if I remember correctly.
Anyway - I really liked the grounds, the food, the bar, and the rooms. It is a sprawling property - we didn't get to use the pool but we did like the look of it (we checked in after it closed...).
