Editorial review:

This exquisite hotel is located next to the American Embassy on the Via Veneto. The rooms are spacious and grand, with a mix of old-world flare and modern conveniences such as internet and plasma TVs. The marble baths are amazing, and the spa is perfect. However, the service has been criticized for some as being hit-or-miss.

            Despite having paid top dollar for an exclusive room, I was very disappointed by the extras I had to pay on top of my room bill E.G. WiFi internet was an additional €4/hr, using the business centre was €4/usage, breakfast was not included in the room charge. These do not add up to a lot but they do really "cheapen" the experience we had at the hotel. I stay in many good hotels around the world and such things as WiFi and breakfast is always included in the room charge. Why can't that be the sae here? I would recommend the hotel to others but would caution them about the little nuisances re WiFi etc.

            Hotel staff was the worst i've ever expirenced and i've been all over the world staying in 5 star hotels

          • Couple

            Very little, except for location

            The hotel needs a proper renovation. The hallways and the rooms smell of old carpets, the place literally stinks. A two star experience - stained carpets and walls in the room, tired common areas.

            Don't book here, if you need an invoice. Reception refused to issue an invoice when checking out. Booked.net would do that. Of course, you can't get an invoice from Booked.net and since then I am chasing for that piece of paper. The hotel simply wouldn't respond to emails or calls.
