We booked a 7 night package deal online. We were disappointed to find upon arrival they had over booked and for our first night we had been moved to their sister property across the road, BW President. At first we were upset, however they transferred all our luggage while we started sightseeing, so upon return we headed up to the room, next day they transferred everything back to BW Milton so wasn't that much of an inconvenience.
The checkin was quick and front line staff polite and welcoming. Our room was smaller than we had hoped for, but was certainly adequate for our stay. Housekeeping service was good, complimentary tea and coffee supplied each day and mini bar available for purchase.
The location was across the road from the metro, which was easy to navigate and allowed us to travel all over the city. It was a 15min walk to the ancient city sights of the colosseum and forum areas. Although saying that, some days we struggled walking back in the heat, so we opted for the tram which stopped at the front of the hotel.
Across the road we discovered a lovely eatery which was reasonably priced for a quick food stop. A gelato stop was a couple of doors down, also very good. The supermarket was about 10mins walk, and the historical landmarks of the basilica Santa Maria Maggiore & San Giovanni in Laterano a short walk as well. There is a garden bar, but we were so busy being out sightseeing and too tired in the evenings to enjoy this beautiful area. There is a restaurant right next door (bistro al 123) which was a wonderful meal, and good for tired feet. There is also other restaurants close by if needed.
Location was perfect for us. less
