How to Get There
We stayed here two nights as part of our tour. This hotel not centrally located. To go to the Metro station you have to take a bus which is not convenient at all. The hotel itself is nice. The hotel looks new and so does our room. They have a pool which closes at 8:00 pm. There is a big mall right next to it. Our room was huge. All rooms have verandas. Toiletries were replenished every day. We had dinner at the hotel during our first night but the meal was served late. They served pasta and pork loin which was dry. Their breakfast menu was not impressive but at least they had a hot breakfast.
Doesn't look like a four star hotel. Staff is unprofessional and uncooperative particularly housekeeping .Had to call them multiple times but they don't turn up.Breakfast was below average. Cleanliness was poor.
I do not recommend for any purpose: tourism, leisure, business or even overnight. We were extremely unwelcome after a tiring trip: an unfriendly receptionist, without looking up to meet my eyes, rudely asks where the documents are? After long consultation, he informs that the reservations previously found did not indicate the required apartments ... I had to show him, through the wrong information, the booking documents. After this initial discomfort, yet another discomfort - there was, for that moment, NO apartment available for a group with children and the elderly. We would have to wait for about 4 hours ..... Asked about traveling while waiting for the city of Rome, another unpleasant surprise - we are 10 km from the historic center / Vatican, with more viable transportation by Taxi. Taxi in this region is difficult for both leaving and returning from Rome. We need to consult 4 drivers for one to accept. The apartments are clean in style, with large bathrooms and regular cleaning. Mediocre breakfast with rude and uneducated staff. Honestly, in this hotel I see no advantage, apart from the large room, which is also meant to be found in other hotels. In short: lousy location, difficult transportation, poor breakfast and, unfortunately, rude staff. Surely there must be other better establishments in town
