We spent 12 nights here, prior to boarding a transatlantic cruise. We were a bit anxious due to some of the reviews we read. It's hard to imagine the reviewers stayed at the same hotel. The staff could not have been friendlier nor more accommodating. Rana, the night desk clerk, greeted us warmly upon arrival and reminded us he was behind the e-mails we exchanged during the reservation process. Ivan, the day desk manager, went to great lengths to help us get our Papal Audience appointment (requires an outgoing and return fax), and took care of a fax we needed to send to the States, all at no charge! The room was comfortable (and normal sized for Europe, small by US standards), and the comfortable and spacious bathroom was recently refurbished in modern European style. The breakfast was superb with great service from the wait staff. Unlimited cappuccinos are included! The complimentary WiFi service worked well, although it was annoying to have to get a new sign-on from the front desk every six hours. Ask for a 24 hour sign-on; one clerk was able to do that for us.
This was an honest three star hotel in a great location (across the street from the opera house). It is not luxurious, but it's comfortable and a great value. We will definitely stay here again when next in Rome.
