My first impression on entering our room was that of disappointment. On entering the bathroom the disappointment rapidly became dismay! The photographs on the hotel website belie the actuality and, misrepresent the quality of the accommodation massively! They have so obviously not been updated for a few years, as my photos show. On a positive note, Irene, who meets and greets and prepares the breakfast is lovely. The beds are also very comfortable and, the bedlinen clean and fresh. That said, it does not make up for the excess mould that exists all around the shower cubicle, the shower doors not meeting, the mould around the cistern, the toilet lid being cut in half in order to accommodate some sort of fit, the gaping hole in the wall where an air conditioning unit has been fitted without the plaster being made good afterwards, the quality of the towels and, generally the very tired overall impression. I have been to Rome on 4 occasions and, though this was not by any means the cheapest accommodation I have stayed in, it really was the worst! Such a shame as a little time and money being spent would bring it back to acceptable levels. I have no idea how this hotel has been given the accolades it has - it was purely down to previous reviews that Best Sistine was booked - a huge mistake!
