First, the good points: great location; the street itself is very nice, and you are within walking distance of Piazza Castello, the Egyptian Museum, Via Roma, etc. Via Garibaldi is a lovely pedestrian thoroughfare that is very close. Some of the desk staff were welcoming and helpful (Federico). The rooms have been updated and all the finishes were very nice; the bed was comfortable, with nice bedding. Now the downside; the rooms are supposedly air-conditioned, but our room was way too warm for us and the only way to cool it was to open the window, which, since it opened up into the room, and since our room was so tiny, meant that then you could not reach one side of the bed. Other couples who were travelling with us had much larger rooms, and they were fine; just make sure that you don't get one of the tiny ones. There was no place to put our luggage when we wanted to open it, other than on the bed. I wanted a second key so that my husband and I could each have one, and was told that was not possible. ????I don't get it.
