Continuing with the Rome experiences, we stayed at the Best Western Globus Hotel (friendly service, ok rooms, smoke got in the room through the air conditioning) and had lunch there (once, when we got there and were too tired to go elsewhere) and breakfast (every day for a week) and here is my account of it.
The restaurant is in the bottom floor of the hotel and serves a lunch (10e) and breakfast buffets (I’m not aware of the breakfast buffet price). The lunch consisted of: Pasta with a meat sauce, risotto and a vegetarian dish (can’t remember) alongside with salad components (tomato, cucumber, lettuce, olives and corn) and bread. The lunch was ok and as it is a buffet, you will get enough to eat. But considering some of the other restaurants in the area (more on these later), I found the food lacking.
The breakfast buffet was a lot better and is definitely worth the money when booking the hotel room. The buffet contained: Multiple different cereals and milk, fruits (apples, nectarines, pineapple pieces etc), deli meats (pork, salami, turkey and prosciutto or some dry-cured ham), cheese slices (Gouda? and Emmental), bread (rolls, toast and country bread), toppings (Nutella, butter, jams and cream cheese), scrambled eggs, sausages, yogurts, sweets (cream or chocolate filled and topped croissants and donuts, cakes and cookies), juices, coffee/tee/hot chocolate (either on request or using the machine) and water. The components of the breakfast were fresh and of good quality. This was always a very good start to the day.
There is a “game” concept, which is used in the decoration of the restaurant that can be seen in the paintings on the wall and other small details. Other than that the restaurant is clean and functioning, but quite obviously a restaurant of a hotel chain and lacking in any big personality.
The service was always very friendly and efficient in the restaurant as well as in the hotel in general. We always felt welcome and attended to during our stay.
