Navona: Hotel Primavera

Piazza San Pantaleo, 3

Reviewed by: Helga from OH, review #399

When: September 2003

This was a disappointing budget choice.

We selected this hotel based on Margo Classe's "Hello Italy" hotel guidebook. It supposedly had a terrace that guests could use. When we asked, we were told that the Piazza Navonna was our terrace, we should sit there. That's not entirely conducive to writing in a journal in the evening! Our bathroom (room 9) was mouldy. The bedspread was dingy and bleach stained. The room needed a paint job and the ceiling was peeling.

We laughed out loud when at precisely 9:30 AM the breakfast room door was locked so that no one could enter late. Those of us inside were locked in with bemused looks on our faces. Breakfast was OK; the usual coffee and a fresh rolls.

There were nice views from some of the other rooms, but ours overlooked an interior courtyard used as a parking lot. We were happy to leave after two nights.

Great location, bad breakfast room, be careful with owner - prices can change after booking.

This hotel is beatifully located with Piazza Navona right behind the corner. Our room had great view. Rooms are clean and convenient. Breakfast was included, but it was really bad. You can skip the breakfast, but no money back.

Be careful with the owner. We reserved the room over the phone and he told that the price is 110 euros. I did not bother to ask for a fax with confirmation. However, when we were checking out, he said that the price is 125 euros. And he kept our passports. And he doesn't take credit cards.

If you still decide to stay in this hotel, I would suggest to request written confirmation for the price.
