If I had written this right after our stay, I'd have said Worst Western as it certainly wasn't up to scratch.
Let's start with location. Near the historic centre it definitely is not. We either took tram and metro, or walked and got the bus. Once in town, we stayed in as it certainly isn't a place you can nip back to. A stone's throw from the Piazza de Popolo? I don't know many who can throw a stone a mile. Take the tram.
The area is just a suburb off Rome. Nothing interesting. I do recommend the nearby Casa des Gusto restaurant nearby though.
The rooms. Well, ours looked nice but was noisy as they do not have double doors, or carpets in the corridor so you can hear clearly when you get noisy people arriving back at all times of the night. The real fun was the shower which was broken, and had obviously been so for some time. I made the point in the morning, but in the evening g found nothing had been done and nothing noted. The lovely lady at the desk did manage to find another room, but one in severe need of redoing and with twin beds rather than the double. The shower worked, but the cubicle was tiny. Certainly a poor two star. During our stay, they obviously did not want to bring in a plumber.
Breakfast room has nice views and the staff were lovely. The actual breakfast is standard industrial produce with uninteresting bread.
Reception. The evening lady was lovely and very helpful. In the day they appeared disinterested and do not like criticism. We were promised a discount and just had the city taxes written off, and they were reluctant about that.
Return? Never. The hassle really mucked up my birthday weekend in Rome. less
