This hotel is on the brink of genius. The pool (recently upgraded) is awesome. Breakfast is great (except for the frankfurters - disgusting) . The restaurant is 'fine' - service leaves a little to be desired and a bit more menu choice would be good, but its functional, especially given there's nothing else nearby to eat. There seems to be a program of investment - which is needed in the rooms. Large rooms (two queens for 2 adults, 2 kids was fine), but the beds are tired, the decor is tired - we had a room 1 away from the elevators which I assume was the source of clunking deep into the evening - annoying, but not enough to complain/move. The A/C was just acceptable if we kept the curtains mostly closed. It amazes me how loud people were in corridors at 2am - with kids! My advice would be get a room well down a corridor! Taxi's were very efficient into Rome - always available at the rank outside. it was EUR25 there, a little less back - the shuttle bus didn't work for us at all.
Overall, this was GREAT value for money, and happy with my stay, but it'd be nice if some things worked better. I'd pay a bit more to get more!
