Great once you get inside!
Posted Aug 29, 2008
A very strange experience staying here. We wanted something near Ciampino airport and the Catacombs on Via Appia Antica, and was certainly good for both of these. The interior of the hotel was faultless, renovated to a high standard, both the minimal reception areas and the bedroom. The furnishings were good quality with a very comfortable bed although no outlook at all from our room. It was also spotlessly clean. The strange part was the exterior, it desperately needs decoration/improvement and looked from the road quite seedy. We almost didn't go in, thinking maybe it had closed down. Luckily we did, and the very smart interior was certainly a relief. Our experience was further disappointing as the restaurant, which to us was one of the benefits, was closed - we suspect it was because it was August. The sole member of staff covering the hotel spoke no English, but luckily his son did.
