Hotel Gioberti - Rome, Italy Complaint - Theft from hotel room safe
We recently traveled to Italy and stayed in the HOTEL GIOBERTI in Rome, Italy. We and our traveling companions (who were also staying at the hotel) went to dinner and before doing so put our money belts in our respective hotel room safes (5 digit codes). We were gone two hours. In the morning we checked our money belt for cash and found it gone ($1000). We told our fellow travelers who checked and found that their cash ($500) was also gone. We went to the front desk and after explaining what had happened we were told that it was "impossible". We explained that, indeed, it WAS possible. They admitted that the manager had access to the safes. We asked to speak to the manager and was told she was home and did not speak English and that there was nothing they could do! We both filed police reports but have not had any feedback.
This is about the most unusual theft we've ever heard of. Beware of the Hotel Gioberti - do NOT trust them.
