6/10 Good

No one was present when I arrived at 4:00 pm even though they said that someone would be there until 5:00. I had to get the clerk at the Hotel Princessa on the 1st floor to call the owner of Why Not Roma to get the code to get into my room. Apparently, the owner had sent me an email earlier that day with instructions; however, I was in transit via rail and didn't have email access. The morning hostess, though, cleaned the room daily and was helpful and gracious. Breakfasts are very minimal (croissant and yoghurt). If you want any protein (meats, eggs, etc.) in the mornings, go elsewhere. Also, this isn't located in a tourist-friendly area--it's surrounded by banks, embassies, businesses and expensive restaurants.

10/10 Exceptional

This is such a great property to stay in. We were here for 6 days. My arrival time was way past their check in time and when i messaged them for a late check in, they replied promptly with a set of instructions to retrieve my key from their lock box. Curiously theyre on the 5th floor with a shared entrance with Hotel Priscilla (it took us a second to figurethat out) When we checked in the following morning we were greeted by the lovely Anita. I dont think i have enough words to say how grateful I was of her hospitality. She gave us a map of the city, bus routes, places to eat, everything we needed. She was always a pleasure to talk to and she was incredibly helpful. Conveniently Taverna Priscilla is downstairs and its a wonderful place to eat after a long day walking the city. Marino, their waiter gave us first class service. Would I stay again here? Without a shadow of a doubt. A++++
