We wished to take our daughter to Rome for 4 nights to celebrate her 50th birthday. Our local travel agents, Trailfinders, U.K., initially suggested very pricey hotels but when asked for something at a more reasonable cost, but still handy for the sights, came up with the Best Western Art Deco Hotel. It was a brilliant suggestion,
The hotel is well placed within easy walking distance of the Termini Station which is served by airport shuttle trains and most of the local buses. It is also within walking distance of most of the historic sights, although, with the high temperatures, we used the excellent, frequent and cost effective local buses.
The hotel itself is in a quiet street, handy for a number of excellent restaurants, if one chose to dine out. Breakfast was a delight with the hotel appearing to avoid the peak hiatus so common elsewhere.
It appeared that the hotel had been refurbished recently but that could have been an illusion caused by the excellent cleaning evident in all public rooms and bedrooms. Our bedroom (510) was quite small but so well designed and furnished that we were more than happy.
The staff were both attentive and knowledgeable complementing the general ambiance of the establishment.
So why not five stars - well the building is "interesting"! While on the outside it looks quite standard, inside it has a multitude of levels with steps and narrow lifts which make it not ideal for visitors with mobility problems - for others it is a great find and we would have no hesitation to return when we are next in Rome. less
