The Romano Palace was a terrible place to stay. We had booked our room for 12 days, but checked out after the 4th day. There are two elevators that take 10 minutes or longer to become available. We were on the 3rd floor and took the stairs, because there was always a crowd of people waiting for an elevator. The hotel itself is filthy. Dirty hallways and the smell is like a cesspool. The bathrooms had very poor lighting, 40watt bulbs with open ceiling tiles exposing old rusted pipes. The cable didn't work the first day and the electricity was out on the second day. The hotel is located right across the street from several bars that compete each night to see who can play the loudest music and the music played until 5am each day, allowing no sleep whatsoever. After checking out on the 4th day, we was not given any apology, or any refund for remainder 8 days we paid for. Staff at hotel was inconsiderate and unconcerned with any of our complaints. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
