See, Symphony of the Night is a pretty challenging game, and save rooms are few and far between. In fact, most of the game is spent pushing one's self further, losing more and more HP, desperately seeking a save room to record the progress and replenish lost health. Once you finally find a save room, battered and beaten as you inevitably are, the relief rushes over you in an awesome wave.
The save rooms in Symphony of the Night are, essentially, an oasis in a desert of brutal gameplay. For that, they are among the best save points ever.
