This was a perfect place for our first visit to Rome. The breakfast was included and was a basket with plain rolls, the ubiquitous crescent with apricot jam and an assortment of packaged breads. Also fresh fruit and juices and plain yogurt. Our room had a tile floor with rugs by the bed and tiled private bathroom with hair dryer, toilet, bidet and shower. I loved the tile, as I hate hotel carpeting -- who knows what is living in there? We also had a TV with two English stations, CNN and BBC World, although we didn't watch them. In the few minutes we had for TV, we watched mostly Italian TV.
Rome is a very expensive city and this was excellent value for the money. It was very safe, as there was an exterior door that was kept locked and you had to go through a courtyard, up some stairs to the lift, and up a few more stairs to even get to the hotel desk. You also turned in your key to the desk when you went out and in the evening rang a bell with an intercom at street level to come in. While we were there, they were working on the rooftop terrace, so there was always a man standing at the street level entrance during the day. We felt very safe.
