Excellent hotel in poor neighborhood
Posted Aug 27, 2016 on Hotels
We booked one night in this hotel because of an early flight out of Rome. We were coming from Tuscany by train and its location was conveniently located in relation to our train station (Roma Tiburtina). The nightly fare was excellent for overpriced Rome market and the photos on Hotel.com seemed OK. Therefore, it was a choice that we don't regret. Unfortunately, do to our very early flight, we couldn't reach the Fiumicino airport through public transportation, and had to swallow a 90Euro cab ride (double the average taxi fare). Therefore in the end, our hotel stay ended up being much more expensive than we hoped for.
However, the hotel was excellent in itself! The room was clean, large and comfortable. The bathroom appointed at state of the art level. The lobby and common area were clean and fresh and the staff was helpful and very courteous. The night receptionist even made me and my husband two amazing cappuccinos when we checked out at 3:30AM and gave my kids brioche and juice, because he felt bad that we would miss the complimentary breakfast... Overall a great experience. I would stay again if I didn't have to check in/out at irregular hours. A subway station is not too far, therefore Rome is reachable on your own but keep in mind that the subway service doesn't run 24/7.
