Came here with friends and had an amazing time! You can not beat the location, its close enough to be convenient for many sights, and just far enough away to not have hordes of tourists in front of your hotel. Room was clean and nice, staff was very helpful. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty for what it was,... More

This hotel is situated just off piazza Cavour and is a perfect location for all the sights- the Vatican was a 10 minute walk and the Spanish steps round the corner. The area was lovely with a few nice restaraunts nearby I would recommend a meal at splendour next door the food was fabulous. We had a puerile room which... More

We stayed here nearly a week and couldn't be happier with our choice. The hotel location is amazing! Just 10 minutes from the Vatican and Spanish steps the other way - as well as several other things. The hotel itself was very clean and the staff was wonderful. One lady particular in the morning at breakfast was great (wish I... More

I often try to make an objective review of the hotel as much as I can, so I divided the review in 4 parts, namely location, service, design and comfort, give a rating for each important element, and average them to get a fair grade. LOCATION - 4 stars Situated along Via Vittoria Colonna, the hotel is just a few... More

Stayed 22-25 Feb 2015. As a single traveller nearly always have to pay a single supplement in hotels, not so here.! Price was extremely good for a city hotel. Fabulous room, very clean, everything you need (except tea making facilities but that might be a British thing ! ), safe for my valuables, lovely bathroom, great shower and lovely clean... More

visited on 12th Feb for 4 days, lovely hotel. Staff were fantastic and couldn't help enough. Check out at 12 but allowed us to leave cases until it was time to leave for airport. Hotel 30mins walk from colosseum,10mins from Vatican. Couldn't have picked a better location and an absolute brilliant price. Will definatly be staying with them again.

Lovely hotel within walking distance of all major attractions. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was very enjoyable and served till 10.30am so a lie in was much appreciated!

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
