    Excellent client care, very helpful staff, highly professional. The room assigned was large and very clean. It's a beautiful hotel.

  • Couple
    10.0

    At the arrival the purser parked the car in the hotel-garage and delivered our luggage to our room. At the departure, the car was ready at the door, with the luggage in it. That was just great.

  • Family with children

    Very spacious & comfortable rooms. Located in the city center. Great breakfast and friendly staff , speaking good English.

    The room is very clean and it makes me feel real historial environment.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Only the Foyer and the Receptionist fits in 4 Star Hotel. The rest needs an urgent upgrade for a 4 Star Hotel..

    The room I was in (328) has most of the wallpaper peeling off, especially the bathroom and the bathroom floor appeared to be all stained. The full choice of breakfast was never available at the same time, thus you had to wait for your favorite sweet/cake to have its turn to be brought out. The Hot Water was almost always warm and not hot, so one cannot get a decent cup (small for a tea cup) of tea. In a 3 star Hotel in Rome I had 2 hrs free internet because I booked through Booked.net, at a 4 Star Hotel I had to pay for even a few minutes use of the internet.

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    The staff were friendly and accomodated us with car parking.

    The room wasn't clean. The balcony was a disappointment. The door to the balcony was next to impossible to open because it was so heavy. Light bulbs were missing. Poor shower. At 150 euro we would have expected more.
