"Unfortunate attitude problem" Hotel Des Artistes Tip by htresidder

Hotel Des Artistes, Rome: 1,186 reviews and 3 photos

The accommodation just does not reflect that shown in the website. It is shabby genteel, and not very roomy. They are quite happy to sell you a "family room" for five and cram extra beds into a space designed for not more than three.

Their cancellation policy stinks, too - we gave them notice "72 hours before arrival time" (their words in their policy) to cancel a subsequent one-night stay in transit through Rome, working on an arrival time of 6 pm. They invoked an entirely inconsistent example shown in their conditions, to say that we should have cancelled 18 hours earlier - 4 complete 24 hour days before the beginning of the day of arrival! Despite our protests they are charging our credit card - which we are resisting!

Unique Qualities: Close to Termini, and opposite a very nice little cafe, great for the morning espresso
