Hotel Boscolo Exedra Roma, Autograph Collection *****
|Reception and welcome||Reception was beautiful and welcome was really nice.|
|Welcome drink||There is water with lemon etc in the reception, so you can help yourself.|
|Free upgrade||Yes!!! The birthday girl, with whose room I was in too, got a really great upgrade.|
|Valet and parking||We weren´t by car, but I guess there is valet and parking.|
|In general||Breakfast was great, there is a buffet and there´s also this menu you can order a meal from. The choices are good.|
|In general||All the rooms were beautiful and big, except one room where all the boys were. Their room was the smallest. Rest of the three rooms were great. Two rooms had this amazing view to the Piazza della Repubblica. There was one problem though. There is this sewer cover on the street, that made annoying noises every time a car drove over it, my dad was really annoyed, I had ear plugs on when I slept, so I didn´t really care, but some of the people in my room were annoyed by it as well. Rooms had modern vibe in them and the ceilings were really high, which is great. Beds were soft and comfortable.|

Hotel area (spa, dinner etc)
|Hotel is beautiful! Breakfast hall is great. Unfortunately there is no good spa area, there is a spa but there isn´t a spa area like in the other hotels I´ve been to, for example like in Boscolo Budapest, Autograph Collection *****, spa there was amazing!
Though you can rent a room with a bath and steam sauna, but that is for extra cost and it´s quite small and not that attractive. Also room service wasn´t good actually, so that´s sad too.
There was a big terrace and an outside pool on the roof, where we went every day after breakfast to get some sun. The pool was closed though because it was off season, but the view was great.
The building itself is such a sight; it is actually late XIX-century palace that is renovated.
Location At the old town, walking distance from shopping area, Colosseum and the rest of the sights.
I visited November 2014.
Would I go again? Definitely.
Value of money Good.
Purpose of the trip Vacation.
Nights 3 nights.
|Luxury||9 out of 10. Wish there was a proper spa too.|
|Drive through||10 out of 10.|
