2/10 Poor

Severely overpriced and definitely not 4 stars!
Hotel is in a good location, has a nice foyer and bar but that’s really about where the niceties end. The room we had was is in dire need of updating and smelt a bit funny. The air conditioning was centrally controlled which was frustrating enough but the actual unit when turned on, sounded like a burger van generator so wasn’t useable when sleeping anyway! We were located on the first floor which also had access to breakfast which from about 7am onwards resembled the walkways at Piccadilly Circus and had a set of large swing security doors that furiously slammed shut, vibrating through the stick thin walls every 2 minutes so as just to make sure your already severely interrupted sleep, was non existent come the morning. The breakfast selection was of very low quality and didn’t seem the most appealing so we went to the cafe next door instead. The shower head was from the 70/80’s and firmly fixed at about shoulder height so you had to duck to get under it whilst also soaking the floor with every use. The car park advised is very close but at €35 a day added on top of the £500 stay for 2 nights seems honestly obscene for the quality of the hotel and room booked. Staff were very nice and had great communication before arrival but this hotel is definitely not 4 star quality and needs a lot of improvements to make it one.

Beautiful Hotel and Well Located
We were fortunate enough to get a top floor room with a massive balcony with views of Villa Borghese AND Piazza del Popolo. The room itself was beautifully appointed. The service was fabulous and the breakfast was welcome and had a great selection.

4/10 Fair

The location was great but I think the hotel needs some maintenance, particularly their A/C. When we arrived the control unit showed 18 degrees celsius, but it was definitely warmer than that, maybe 23 or 24. At some point the A/C did not work altogether and when we talked to the front desk they said something along the lines of if we touch the controls because the A/C is finicky it can turn off. They did not mention anything of the sort when we checked-in and we did not try to touch the controls until after it was obvious the A/C broken (right before going down to talk to front desk). It somewhat felt like they were trying to say we were responsible for it not working… Other than that, the rooms are a lot smaller than you would think based on the pictures online. We barely had room to open our bags. This was not really an issue, most hotel rooms in Europe do tend to be smaller, just mentioning so that others keep it in mind when booking. The lift is also super tiny and you also have to take two separate elevators to access the ground floor from floors 2-8. This can be an issue when trying to go up or down in the morning when people are checking out.
