We rented this place for in early-mid August 2019.
AC cools the room quickly, and this is important as the electricity (hence AC) does not work when away from the room.
Internet connectivity was excellent - no issues whatsoever
Shower head - amazing! Strong water pressure leads to a very pleasant shower experience.
The bed is reasonably comfortable - no real issues with the mattress
Very quiet..... at least during our stay!
There is no front service desk, therefore no one to address concerns should there be any (noise, toilet issues, misplaced key, item missing from the room, etc.) We were lucky in that we didn't have any but I can think of a number of circumstances that could occur, that would require a timely response. I am just not sure how quick issues could be addressed at night.
The kitchen - no air flow. It had a musty smell. Carried enough food items for a basic breakfast.
Pillows - very thin. It's time to replace them!
The room refrigerator barely worked. It couldn't really cool down much anything even if left overnight.
The Location: within walking distance to the Vatican and not too far from "Ancient Rome". A quick bus ride will get you "downtown" in no time. Buses run regularly and are within 100m or so from the hotel. We used this mode of transportation and it worked well for us.
There was nothing luxurious about the suite, lest to say hardly did I see any humans till I checked out.
Found a chit with a number to call and the lady remotely opened the door to the apartment type complex and then tried to figure the way to the next door, which again was.opened remotely before I was led to a hall with the key of the room in the door.
The room was very small with hardly space for a queen size bed and a small toilet. But one good thing it had a bidet.
The suite is located right opposite to a super market and enough restaurants for a bite. The breakfast served is cold and again it's a self service with no assistance.
Room was ok but was not what we expected by the photos. It was supposed to include breakfast but we were never offered or informed of it and there was only 1 small table with 2 chairs in a small lobby. On our last night when we returned in the early afternoon from our Vatican tour, we discovered that the toilet paper was never replaced and we were left with about 1/3 roll to last till the next day. I contacted the owner by email, and was informed that he had left for the day and would not return till approx. 9am he next morning. When I questioned what we were supposed to do, I was instructed to go to the 24 hour supermarket down the street and purchase a roll. There was also a coffee pot in the room but it appeared the aluminum was coming off and we could not use it. The owner did offer to book us an airport transfer the next morning at a rate he stated was much less than everyone else charges. We found a note on our bed with the time of pick up and that it would be 55 euro. This was more than the flat rate of 48 euro by Roma Taxis. We ended up finding a shuttle service online that gave us a flat rate of 32 euro. Since I was unable to make calls we could not call and cancel the original high priced shuttle. I did receive an email from he owner of Vatican Luxury Suite stating that our charge card will be billed for the 55 euro although we did not use the service. Needless to say I notified my credit card company about this. This was our first time in Italy.
First impressions: this hotel was not what I was expecting as it was in a residential building (not a hotel from the street front), and there was also construction on the exterior of the building. But once we entered we were greeted by a lovely lady who helped us with checkin. The room was perfect for our needs and was fitted with a baby cot, it was large enough for all our luggage (we were traveling with a lot!) and bathroom of a decent size. Beds comfortable and a quiet hotel. I was so happy for the price with what we got here (also included breakfast).
The Vatican was a short walk away, excellent restaurant directly behind the hotel and only a short walk to supermarkets and chemists.
