I chose the Palazzo Manfredi based largely on the review on Trip Advisor. Admittedly, I was a bit nervous that few if any of the other sites, magazines, etc. that I went to check hotels mentioned nothing of it. Wasn't on one "best of" list - which I found odd. Nevertheless I took a chance, and I'm glad I did. It's a small hotel, which is high on luxury, and in a great location. We had a suite - our teenage son stayed on the fold out couch which was very comfortable; my wife and I in the main master bedroom. Worked out great. The view of the Colosseum out our window was spectacular. The people were really nice and helpful; going out of their way to make our stay memorable. The room had all sorts of nice touches - from fresh macaroons replenished every day, to an ultra modern bathroom and interesting fixtures. I found that the decor may have been a bit overdone and more interesting than practical. If I were alone with my wife on a special occasion it would've been perfect; with a teenage son, a bit less so. Only other minor complaint: the bed is very very firm. Not sure if this is 'normal' for hotels in Italy. All in all, the Palazzo Manfredi is pricey ... but it's also classy, friendly, and one of a kind.
