We look forward to our annual visit here with enthusiasm and the hotel has never disappointed. The art deco public areas are stunning, and invite one to linger - the bar is a particular 'must' and why not try dinner too. Our room was welcoming and comfortable, with plenty of storage space for travellers' kit. Linen was changed whenever it had been used.
Although some people prefer a city centre location, we find the quiet area, just near the Borghese gardens is perfect. It is a 25 minute stroll through the park to Piazza Popolo, there is a taxi rank about 1 minute's walk away and there are frequent buses and trams to various areas of the city. There is an added bonus of being very near the Modern Art Gallery which has a lovely open air cafe/restaurant.
Whilst these advantages are considerable, the hotel might not be the gem it is without the professionalism and charm of the staff. Guests have a wide range of needs and the whole team appears to enjoy responding to each person's individual preference so there is none of the feeling that one gets in some hotels, that one is a' sausage being processed'. The 'hands on' involvement of the owner, Mr. Ottaviani shows.
