A few years ago,I booked via a reputable booking engine and received a "very" low rate too. Questioned them on the rate and they said it's fine...paid for a couple of nites in advance...then we arrived. Beautiful place. Were "welcomed" warmly till they saw my confirmation and then was told NO ROOM for you. even with confirmation in hand. Had to then go look for another place.Some people "honor" their parents only! (and I speak Italian..so no language barrier) When we got home we were refunded our money from the agency, thankfully.

there was another rome hotel that was about 11$usd, they did "honor" their deal, no issue.
actually really nice experience, with free b-fast actually pretty good american style, only issue was the suburban location at that time.
