Returned last week from Rome Italy and redeemed at the Rome Courtyard Central Park. I was aware of all the comments and concerns raised by all of you and most were spot on. My thoughts overall good hotel, My wife and I thought the hotel was indeed older and was showing it's age, but we had nice view of park and St Peter's Basilica. Bathroom was very small but the bed was comfortable. The breakfast buffet was a tad pricey. 15 Euro for the buffet (American style) and 10 for continental.
Location: A little bit out of the way, but the shuttle to the Vatican made up for that shortfall, plus the proximity to the Gemelli train station was also very good.
I don't think we will stay there again but did agree the stay was ok.
