8/10 Very good

Pros- quiet, easy walk to the sites, daily housekeeping,large shower with hot water. Breakfast with coffee and small bites. Cons- no sign to identify the place outside. Hard to find initially. Bed hard as a rock. Front desk was touch and go. Overall it was a great stay. We were not in the room all that much so it was a place to sleep and shower whilst visiting all the sites.

6/10 Good

Convenient location for a short stay city break in the historical area of Rome. Unfortunately it was disappointing to find the room had no coffee making facilities, the toilet seat was elevated which meant my wife who is 5ft 4" tall was unable to put her feet on the ground, and finally again my wife was unable to reach the pole in the wardrobe to hang her clothes up.
