We stayed for a week in Rome early in February before spending another couple weeks touring Italy. We returned at the end of our trip for an extra three nights to see some of the sites that were previously closed because of the snow.The price of our previous hotel, which was excellent, had increased by nearly 50% in that time, putting it out of our range.
We selected Giuliana based on trip Advisor reviews and price, but we felt that they cut a few too many corners to keep the price down. The heating in the room is off during the day and it can only be turned on by reception. They appeared to turn it off again during the night. It takes quite a while to warm the room because it is the hot water radiator type.
Our towels were not changed during our visit, which doesn't really worry us, but since the heating wasn't on and the towel drying rail didn't work, they remained damp.
On the plus side, the hotel is only about a 15 minute walk from Termini station, it is walking distance to all the sites and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. The free wifi worked well and the included breakfast of toast, croissants, cereal and coffee was adequate.
