    3/5

    Beautiful (but dark )interior. Very clean and new bathrooms and furniture. Clean floors. Nice TVs. We only stayed one night before a flight from Rome. Very convenient to train! Very good breakfast! Issues - the room had a septic or maybe mildew smell that was hard to eliminate - since we were only staying one night we just sprayed some cologne to try to mask it. It was a hot day and the AC could not be turned on until we got in the room so it stared off very warm after our journey. The windows were open when we arrived - I wondered if that was to improve the smell... the room eventually cooled down. At check in, we asked for extra keys (for our party of 4) but the attendant said it was their policy to supply only one key per room. The room layout was great for a short stay for our family of 4. They had WiFi - a separate password for each room - it was slow however and dropped out - could be that we gave it a large task - 4 people with devices. All in all it’s a nice convenient and reasonable choice near the Termini train station, except for those few issues.

    Bad experience

    Do not recommend this hotel. I will never stay there again. We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel California in Aug 2019. Both nights - we had terrible experience. On first night the drainage of the shower was not working and the water came into the room. Our bags were soaked. When we complained they said nothing could be done till next day morning. When we asked in the morning they said we will look into the problem after breakfast hours are completed. The shower did not get fixed till much later next day. The second night was a bigger disaster. For some reason, the fire alarm was ringing all night and all of us on the 5th floor complained all night. Nobody on the entire floor could sleep the entire night. When we checked out the next morning the manager at the front desk told us that they will be refunding the one night payment. We have not yet received the money, despite reminding them by email later. Terrible hotel. Unresponsive staff. Breakfast was less than average standard. Rooms are sub-standard. If there was a way to give 0 stars or negative stars, I would do that. - MC
