Stayed here for 1 night on 23rd May.
The room - We were in room 605 on 6th floor *warning* if you can't manage stairs then the lift only goes up to floor 5, so make sure you make this known when booking. Luckily we didn't have a problem with this, apart from all day walking around Rome, it wasn't something I looked forward to even if it was just one flight.
Also, this room is very small. It's in the roof basically, right next to the machine room for the lift. Not a problem during the night, but if you wnat to sleep past 7am-ish, then you need to be a heavy sleeper as it's quite noisy.
Small velux window that you can't reach to see out of. It's a twin room but one of the beds was a pull out chair bed, personally I think thats a bit cheeky calling it a twin when it's not a proper bed.
Beds are very hard and I woke up everytime I turned over. I only got as much sleep as I did because I was so exhausted after an ealry morning flight and walking around all day.
Bathhroom - reasonable size. With everything you need. Had a shower in the morning and the water was ok, though the temperature did vary, but not freezing or boiling enough to make it uncomfortable.
Breakfast- Was reasonable, nice selection of filled croissonts, yoghurts, some cereal, cheese and ham, etc. Nothing special, but keeps you going and included in the price.
Staff - only stayed the one night so didn't come into contact with that many staff members. But the ones we did we very nice and helpful.
Location - We ended up getting a shuttle bus from the train Leonardo Express area by the airport, as the express train is 14 euros and then you get a bus which is about 3 euros. We paid 20 euros each for the shuttle, which made it much easier.
We didn't bother with any buses. If you turn left out of the hotel, and left onto Via Normentana, which goes past the British Consulate onto Via XX Settembre, you will come to the Quirinale. From there the Trevi fountain is close by and everything else within walking distance. To get to the Quirinale takes about an hour depending on how many times you stop to look at the wonderful surroundings.
Overall - nice hotel, prob would have been better if we were in a different room. Location was ok for us but maybe a bit far out for some. Glad we only stayed one night though because of the beds. Also, reasonable price.
