For the kind of money this hotel charges per night, I really expected more based on what was advertised. They claim to offer satellite tv but what I saw was probably worse than basic. As an English speaker, when I hear satellite tv I expect at least 10 English channels. The only channels in English were CNN and BBC. Thing is CNN was unwatchable at the time due to some poor reception issues. In addition, the tv set was a model that many are throwing in the garbage. Housed in a neatly built closed cupboard, I expected to see a nice flat scene tv set with HD. Instead, on opening the cupboard door I saw an old tv set that was made ten or so years ago.
As tea and coffee drinkers, my wife and I always try to book a hotel that comes with a kettle and an assortment of teas in the room. Based on what we paid per night, we certainly expected this simple luxury. We were left disappointed.
The in house night time menu was also ridiculous. Feeling hungry one night around 11.45 and with no supermarket or restaurant close enough that I was willing to venture outside, I decided to call room service. All that was available was cheese and/or salami. Now again, when I pay over 200 euros per night for a room I expect better.
On the plus side the room was clean and of acceptable size although the shower could have been a little bigger. The staff was courteous and friendly. In total I would not stay at this hotel again. When you have travelled and stayed at cheaper hotels and received much more, it is difficult to accept that it is alright to spend over 200 euros per night and not have simple comforts like a kettle in your room and proper tv shows to watch after walking around Rome for the entire day!
