Residence Aurelia Antica in Rome near Vatican
Posted May 24, 2011 on Hotels
This is an order building that was once a residence of small apartment. It is very convient to the Vacatin and bus line. We rented one of the apartment, while some in our group had reserved rooms. All but one couple in our group were given apartments because the had run out of rooms, but weren't charged any more. We found them to be sufficent for our needs, but were disapointed that none of the apartments had any utensil, glasses or plates in them. Also the hot water pressure was almost non existent at times with only a smal trickle of water coming out. We also were informed on the night before check out that we had to pay the new city tax before leaving. This was never mentioned on line during the resevation process or when we checked into the hotel. It was a small amount, but annoying since it was not mentioned until then.
The price was fantasic. We compared it to other hotels in the immediate area, and it was less than half of what they were charging.They also called a local restaurant for us. They restaurant sent vans to pick us up and bring us back to the hotel more than 3 1/2 hours later. Italian dinners go on forever the amount of food in way more than most of us good every consume.
