They're not required to offer a lounge.

When did free stuff become an expectation?

Just finished a 4 night stay. They put us in their standard junior suite which was more than adequate for a couple. A few additional things to add:

Pros:
  • Nice room, hotel kept clean
  • Good service and housekeeping across the board
  • Really liked the rooftop restaurant and live music was actually good
  • good value (booked at category 4)
  • tons of freebies. Free minibar (coke, juices, beer, red wine, white wine proseco), welcome amenity, lounge, breakfast, etc.
  • like the toiletries

Cons:
  • I actually thought breakfast was pretty bad. Just a slight step up in quality from a Hyatt place but with more options. We skipped breakfast the last day and it was the right choice for us
  • elevator is tiny and super slow. Cant expect a lot from a hotel like this in Rome but thought Id mention it as it also went down completely for a day and we were on the 6th floor
  • gym is tiny, not particularly clean, and stuffy
  • really didnt like the location as a tourist. Might be nice for those that travel for business as I usually like a quiet spot when I travel for work (always within the U.S.), but I thought it was terrible for touristy activities. My wife had never been to Rome and getting a taxi and Uber proved to be a chore and really expensive. I hadnt been to Rome in 8 years and didnt remember Rome having such poor public transportation but we hand a terrible time getting a taxi or Uber (they cancelled on us 8 times over 4.5 days and we still walked 10+ miles a day). We like to walk but if youre trying to fit a lot in it might be difficult. It might have been the holiday weekend and was also in stark contrast to Paris where we just came from and has excellent transportation options

Side note: just looked at our bill and we did some last minute emergency laundry because one of our bags were lost and 2 shirts, 2 pairs of pants and 8-9 pairs of socks/underwear came out to 150 euros! This was our fault for not checking pricing more carefully but still is outrageous pricing.

extra side note: we did a spa day at the new Bulgari hotel and it was one of the best spa experiences Ive ever had at a reasonable price. 340 euros total for a 60min couples massage in a couples suite, unlimited access to their facilities including one of the most beautiful indoor pools Ive ever seen, ice fountain, steam room, sauna, and seemingly endless Bulgari branded amenities, etc. Highly recommend!

All in all I probably wouldnt stay here again as a tourist at a category 5 mostly due to location. Looking forward to the Thompson opening here in the next year or two.

There is a fixed permanent taxi rank a 3 minute walk away from the hotel, on the corner of via campania and via veneto.
By getting a taxi there you also save paying for the "call out" charge.

Uber in Rome is more expensive than regular white taxis, and isn't as widespread.

Do you happen to know if there are minivan taxis available here? We have a large family and would otherwise need to take two taxis.

Have not seen too many minivan taxis in Rome, although they are plentiful in Sorrento and part of the Amalfi Coast.

Does the Jr. Suite actually accommodate 2 adults and 2 children? It's letting me book it on the website (rare for Europe), but the couch looks like it makes a bed for 1. Do they pull out a cot as well? If there was availability, I'd likely just go with 2 rooms.

no. You will be cramped and miserable. The rooms in this hotel tiny. We move furniture around and take all the decorative pillows and floof off the bed to add some space and itstill feels cramped to me with two adults with minimal luggage. Get two rooms
