Our welcome was friendly, bags taken by a porter and dropped to our room while we enjoyed a cocktail listening to the live music in the bar area. (I'd recommend the Pear Drinks and the Rob Roy)
The room was beautiful and large and comfortable, the bath is large and shower powerful, bathrooms come with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, mouth wash cotton wool, shower caps, shaving point and a half decent hair dryer, slippers dressing gowns etc
The breakfast is large varied and excellent quality, I don't have a sweet tooth so enjoyed the breads, smoked fish, meats and cheese particularly however the large selection of pastries, tarts and cakes as well as the Full english option, japanese and fruit.
The shuttle bus takes you to town - on the Friday the driver was excellent giving a quick run down of sites and even doing an extra drop off at request. Reminding us about the break in service over lunch and pointing us all in directions we were after.
We took advantage of La Pergola while there excellent food and views (get the Fagottelli - the house special so amazing)
I have stayed in several hotels for business abroad but this one was on a personal visit. So the hotel was good, the staff friendly, food great and I would rate 4 out of 5 .
As they say you can say a lot about someone during a lost luggage and a rainy day (Its not just about the person who lost, but the ones who make a difference). I lost my valuables and passport and had to run between the cops and the embassy. The hotel became my home until I got everything resolved. that's when I realized this wasn't just another hotel. right from cheerful conversations (Each one of them at the reception and the bar man) to getting my print outs on time, even getting my passport photograph cut to perfection, the staff were with me! when I bid adieu, it was like for some good friends..
We stayed there for 3 nights...the hotel is located in a lovely quiet area with very nice restaurants around it...its located about 10mins drive from most of the tourist attractions...the breakfast was very nice...the staff very helpful....the rooms very clean....however we specifically asked for a double bed but got two single beds joined together instead...I cant really fault this hotel in any way....
I've been in this hotel almost 6 years ago. When I saw they had availability for my trip I was happy. I was looking for a nice hotel, not too much expensive and most important with car park. The location was perfect for me as all my family lives in the area. The staff are well trained and always kind and polite.
I thought I had booked a standard room given that the hotel had a 4 star rating. When we got into our room me and my sister were very dissapointed. The room was very basic and I mean very basic. There was no flat screen TV with English speaking channels, no tea/coffee making facilities, and no towels, and the shower cubical was extremely tiny. We went down to resecption within half hour of our arrival complaining about the basic facilities. The guy at reception advised us that we had booked an economy room and that a comfort room would cost xx euros per night and there were no rooms available. We asked again 2 days later and managed to get an upgrade to a comfort room. This room was much more modern and had a flat screen TV with sky, however the only English speaking channel available was the news, also there were no tea/coffee making facilities. I booked the hotel because the
pictures looked nice and because of the 4 star rating but I must confess we were dissapointed initially. I was under the impression that a 4 star hotel would have standard modern rooms with flat screen TVs providing English speaking channels other than just the news, tea/coffee machines as standard with free wifi. The positives for us were that the stafff were very helpful and accommodating, and we had a meal in the restaurant one evening and the food was nice.
This upscale residential area is largely comprised of villas and embassies but also popular landmarks such as Ponte Milvio, bustling with restaurants and shopping. Encompassing the Monte Mario natural reserve and the astronomical observatory, the Olympic Stadium is also located in this area. The stadium is one of the largest in Europe, and home to the famous soccer teams AS Roma and SS Lazio.
