So the location is good, if you want to be near the Vatican (though you're not actually all that close to the entrance to the museums or to St. Peter's Square, as the busy, noisy piazza Risorgimento is pretty much exactly in between the two). Room was very cramped, walls entirely covered in giant reproductions of loud pre-Raphaelite paintings. If you want giant nude men flexing over your headboard, this is the place for you. TV did not work till my last day, despite repeated requests for a fix. Had to ask for wifi password (there was nothing to indicate there even *was* wifi). Breakfast is a coupon for a caffe and cornetto at the bar in the next block. Which was actually quite good, and run by friendly proprietors, but you pretty much have to be out of the building and on your way before you can have anything to eat. Walls were paper thin; I had to move the bed to the middle of the room and download a white noise app (thank goodness for wifi!) to make it through one night because I could hear the guy in the next room snoring at top volume. Oh, and the bed was not three feet from the incredible MACERATING TOILET, which makes an insane din as it chews up your waste after every flush and also turns on to do some extra chewing at random moments in the middle of the night. I mean at top volume. Kind of gross if you begin to think about it. But worst of all was the shiftiness of the guy on the desk -- I booked via an Italian booking service and paid the deposit by credit card, but there's a little sign at the desk saying they impose a FIVE PERCENT fee if you want to pay the rest of your bill by credit card! I had made up my mind to swallow the fee when, on top of that, he insisted on having the 2 euro per night room tax and mini bar fees paid in cash. And when I handed him 20 euros, he didn't have change! Insisted on coming down to the bar with me to break the bill and get his money. And even then he gave me a messed up receipt that didn't reflect what I'd paid. Idiotic. Made checkout stressful and frankly, a bit stalkerish.
