This hotel is in great location. The room was bit small and dated..and was quite noisy at night. The staff were all very friendly and attentive so service was excellent. The bar on the roof top prices were a little steep in comparison to other bars

We found this beautiful boutique hotel on hotels.com and you always have some worries about booking a place based on photos. To our delight we couldn't have been happier. With only 20 steps to Navono Square the location was excellent, it really gave you a sense of being in the heart of Rome. The staff were very friendly and always... More

We liked the location but that was about it. Our room was tired and tiny with an upstairs bedroom that had no room and a lounge below that we struggled to find space for our luggage. The outside terrace was about 6 foot by 2 foot with a high wall around it! The restaurant vegetarian only food was mediocre and... More

Lovely view from the rooftop, the service is really good and professional but the drinks are really expensive. But worth it! Very fancy, nice and classy food during Aperitivo. Perfect during sunset, what an amazing view!

I had noticed this hotel the first time we visited Rome - it’s located next to the Plaza Navona and when we walked by I was impressed by the low-key, yet obviously luxurious exterior, with its abundance of foliage and subtle signage. We ended up staying here when Al Italia cancelled our connecting flight. We’d stayed at Villa Cora in... More

great hotel. right in the thick of everything, around corner from piazza navona and a short walk to everything. great views on roof and amazing sunset. if you prefer modern, "american tourist" trap stay at the jumeirah grand (or accompanying hotels) otherwise this is the spot!! Will be back.

This hotel is near my absolute favourite place on earth - Piazza Navona. It is everything you would want in a hotel, wonderful breakfast (with so many vegan options for us ~ soy milk cappuccino ~ yum), perfect location and great dining on the beautiful rooftop terrace. It was a dream to be there.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
