We arrived in Rome a day ahead of schedule and our reserved hotel was unable to accommodate us early so we booked a room at Hotel Ripa for one night through a tourist office in Termini train station. The location was in a commercial area. The hotel decor is very contemporary with giant modern sculptures of dogs etc. and layout of our room was somewhat claustrophobic. The bed area was enclosed with a combination wardrobe/room divider separating the sleeping area from the front area with a worn sofa bed. The bath had a tub/shower. The walls were scuffed. There was a sliding door with Terrace overlooking an alley with an office building across the way but no furniture on the Terrace. There is a restaurant and bar area with Happy Hour and generous hors d'oeuvres. The staff were pleasant and helpful. You are given a room key on a large 8 in. "fish" key fob and have to turn it in to desk in exchange for a key card each time you exit the hotel which seemed unnecessary and cumbersome. The breakfast was generous with a lot of variety of meats, cheese, eggs, sausage and pastries, coffees and teas but the dining area design was cold, bright white and like entering a space station. The hotel seemed to cater to business people. and may be desirable We were disappointed.
