First room offered to us has blocked view window as the hotel is undergoing some renovation at the front. We were pretty upset as we booked room under "Orange Blossom Package " that guarantee good view of Borghese garden and we stay for 5 nights. The hotel should not deliberately treated us this way. Very first bad impression and it took 30 minutes to change room to lower floor.
Breakfast could have been improved in term of variety and quality . It was so boring during our 5 night stay. Menu are the same every day NO CHANGE. No salad/ side dishes such as potatoes, mushroom or egg offered in many styles like those provided in 5 star hotel. Standard menu is scrambled egg, sausage and bacon. Bread and bakery tastes so bad and some look like stale bread from day(s) before. Cheese quality is mediocre/ some are tasteless. Service at breakfast is mediocre not 5 star and under staff. Buffet table /utensils at breakfast looks like those in 3 star hotel. However the view from restaurant (6 fl) is quite nice.
Walking uphill to the hotel is a very long walk. So we ended up not going back to hotel during the day to refresh as it was not so convenient.
No tea/coffee making facilities in room (Cannot imagine 5 star hotel in this century do not have such facility)
No free wifi or internet. The one provided in the lobby is also chargeable.(Cannot imagine 5 star hotel in this century do not have such facility)
