As there seems to be a lack of information and details online about the lounge used by UA in Rome, here come some details and lots of pictures. UA uses a contract lounge in Rome. I don't recall the name of the lounge, and I don't recall if Star Gold is granted access, but I *believe* they are. F and C passengers are definitely granted access. The lounge is located downstairs in the concourse area with the UA gates. I visited the lounge during a fairly long connection to the single UA flight -- 6:30 am to 11:30 AM. When I arrived I was the only person in the lounge. By the time the UA departure time rolled around, the lounge was quite full. I believe there was a CO flight at the same time. The lounge provided a (slightly) less chaotic place to sit than the rest of the terminal. The food options were only adequate because I had eaten immediately before arrival on my connecting flight. The food was dismal even when compared to domestic RCC standards. The "breakfast" spread consisted of croissants and a sweet snack mix (chocolate covered pretzels and shortbread cookies). Around 11:00 the croissants were replaced with small finger sandwiches. The alcohol selection was equally limited -- red or white wine only. No beer and no liquor. It is possible that more booze would be put out later in the day. There was one empty fridge that was crying to be filled with beer. The coffee on offer was pre-brewed drip coffee in a pot or espresso in a thermos (first time I've seen that). The bathroom was surprisingly large and clean, although more than two toilets would have been better in the men's room. There was a single shower room attached to the bathroom although I did not see anyone use it. As reported on FT, the internet is not free and is quite expensive. Fortunately the wifi from the Alitalia lounge next door can be purchased for 50 euro cents for 24 hours -- a no brainer. Two PC workstations are provided offering free internet and free printing. The lounge agent was surprisingly helpful considering she had no affiliation with UA. When I arrived with no onward boarding pass she proactively called the UA checkin counter to verify that I was entitled to lounge access as an F passenger. She even gave me a lounge invitation for easy reentry to the lounge. All things considered the lounge was better than nothing, but it does not compare to the lounge offering at any Star Alliance hub city in Europe.
