The hotel itself was great- the rooms were huge, breakfast was excellent, service was nice, and views were beautiful, but with a hotel like this, you could drop it right next to an oil power plant and you would still enjoy what went on inside the hotel. Thats the only real problem I had with the hotel: it seemed off to the side of everything. And forgive me if I sound like an idiot for being bothered by this, but since I prefer to be a "temporary local", it made me feel a little too much at home. Just about everyone I saw staying at the hotel was British or American like me, and didn't seem to make much of an effort to act at all Italian (again, sorry if this is too biased). The service, although it would be hard to find a nicer collection of people, always seemed to be speaking English to me even when I spoke Italian.
But despite that, my day and a half in Rome was great. Overall, I'd give the hotel thumbs up if you want a luxurious place to stay and don't mind longer-than-average cab rides (the drivers they provided were great, by the way). It's a little hard to find this hotel, my parents spent about twenty minutes looking for it, but of course theres that risk for every hotel, isn't there? So read your map with confidence and walk up the steps of the hotel Lord Byron like you own the place- and I guarantee, you'll enjoy your stay.
