We have just come back from the Hotel Augustea having stayed Tuesday through to Friday. We could not believe the quality of hotel compared to a British 3 star.
It was spotlessly clean and we think it may have been previously redecorated in places as the flooring throughout seemed to be new and different to the pictures (tiles throughout reception/hallway and laminate in bedroom). The bathroom also seemed to have all new tiles and the shower was lovely and powerful... as well as hot! There was also a bidet in the bathroom. The hairdryer was a bit odd and looked a bit like a hoover stuck to the wall but it seemed to do the job :)
We were in room 53 and although there was traffic noise from outside this doesn't bother us as we are from London anyway and use to this! Clean towels and bedding were put in the room everyday. The furniture was a sage green in colour and very traditional with painted flowers which we felt added to the character of the hotel! All drawers and wardrobe doors worked and there was a mini fridge in the room as well which we used to keep the water cool.
It is true that breakfast was limited with white bread rolls, ham, cheese, selection of pastries, cornflakes, tea, coffee and juice. However, it was all fresh. Just would have been nice to see some fruit and yoghurt as well!
All in all, we had a lovely stay in this hotel and it is central to absolutely everything! We could reach the trevi fountain in 15 minutes and the colosseum in 25 :)
We would definitely stay here again if we were to visit rome!
