Location, location, location! A clean and comfortable place to stay. Not for hotel snobs. Friendly helpful staff. And not bad to look at with names like Fabio and Lucca. Anyway...Rome is expensive but what makes this reasonably priced hotel with its typical continental buffet breakfast(more than adequate with steamed milk and coffee) so special is the fact that you can eat breakfast outside on the 6th floor terrace in the morning, and then at night take your own wine and glasses from the room and sit outside and watch the sunset and lights of Rome come on. I almost hate to write this review because of the 3 nights we stayed there, we were almost the only ones up there each night before heading out to dinner in the chaos below. There is even a higher level with one table for 4 on the top deck if you are brave enough to walk up the small spiral iron staircase. We know not to wear heals in Italy so of course we were up there all 3 nights. Rome is a noisy crazy city so it is important to be able to get away from the crowds once a day and enjoy the peace and quiet that you experience up at that level. Rome feels more like Paris up there with all of the domed churches including St. Peters and towers and monuments surrounding you at that level. We did see a group of women having their dinner up there with their wine if you want to save money one night. There is a coffee shop next door that sells some light fare to go or "take away" as they like to say in Italy, and we found cheese and meat shops not too far away. The trick in Rome is to walk down the most narrow streets you can find so that a car cannot drive down. Amazingly cars are allowed to drive down streets that have outdoor restaurant seating. It is amazing more people don't get run over while eating!
