I stayed in the "Annex" - the ANAHI. It's a little hotel across the street (the entrance seems more like a residence) - a tiny street. Apparently the Locarno acquired the ANAHI and it is now part of the Locarno but they still call it by it's old name. I'm explaining this because it was difficult to understand the situation when I was booking the room.
There is no smoking allowed in the Annex, which is fantastic. It has five floors, and the fifth has only one room - mine! Had my own staircase, even, and there was a locked door at the bottom of it as well as a locked door for my room. I felt very, very safe (and I'm a safety stickler). I had a private bath in my room, and there was a little rooftop terrace outside the corridor - I was the only one up there. The room was much larger than your typical European room, and it was very clean.
The icing on the cake here is that they charge less for rooms in the Annex because they don't provide room service there. Who wants to eat room service in Italy?!? (Btw, the included breakfast is very good). And there's no smoking! 105e/night. It was great. There were a few glitches (my TV remote didn't work, had a little difficulty with the shower one day), but for the most part it was great, and I loved the staff. (Oh, and the shower head was like one you see in a spa - like a rainfall!)
I'll stay there again when I get to return to Rome, and I'll request my room. :)
