“First Luxury is First Rate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

My husband and I chose this hotel after seeing it featured on a new Conde Nast list -- it is one of only two hotels in Rome noted. This being our first trip to Rome, I wanted a prime, safe location for our 8-day stay and the chic pictures and modern flair fit the bill. I booked our reservation on Expedia for two separate stays as we considered another location. After some confusion at check-in, we were especially grateful as they upgraded us to a gorgeous suite with a sitting room, terrace and beautiful marble bathroom. We were grateful to staff, especially Meriem, as she went above and beyond for us to make our visit exceptional. The hotel was within walking distance to prime shopping, the Vatican, the Borghese gardens and the Spanish Steps. Each day it was a comfort to return to the comfortable and modern hotel after seeing the city. I would recommend the hotel car from the airport to make the trip seamless.

Room Tip: The suite had two tvs, which was nice for watching the Olympics.

I stayed for one night at this hotel and was impressed by the friendliness of the staff, good service, and the nice size of the rooms. I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy the wine tasting event. The location is pretty accessible to the shopping and sights and takes about 5 to 10 minute walk. This Hotel is a great contrast for Rome as it will give you something different than the ancient surroundings.

We stayed for two nights in late October, 2012, and could not have picked a better place. The check in experience itself was superb. The room, restaurant and hotel is first rate in every way. The hotel is on a little side street very near the Via Del Corso and in easy walking distance of lots of restaurants, shops and sites (such as the Spanish Steps). There is also a great roof top bar with a beautiful view. Unlike some hotel roof top bars, it was not crowded at all. We will definitely stay here again.

We went this December 12 for a long week-end. Hotel re-opened in 2011, stylish and modern. Room and bathroom are big enough and well decorated. Staff is at top level, always there to be nice and useful. Sad that the weather did not allow us to enjoy the terrasse beautiful view. Position is great, a walk from historical places (you would tell me they are everywhere in Rome). Very good Ad Hoc restaurant is just in front the hotel. We recommend.

A chic, modern hotel within walking distance of all the major sights. Upgrade to an Art Suite if you can, a lovely large room. Special thanks to Dario, Meriem and Daniele for all their help with restaurant and tour recommendations (the restaurant Il Brillo Parlante round the corner was a great call, good no-nonsense Italian food at a reasonable price). Will definitely return.

Staff was very attentive and went out of their way to help with airline issues, booking reservations and other services. The location is perfect- right in the middle of the shopping district. It is on a side street so the view is not great but the rooms are quiet.

The hotel is modern with lots of interesting art work and the roof deck has a nice view of the city. One of the few showers in europe that puts in a rough surface on the floor so you don't feel like you are going to slip.

Highly recommended

I knew I would like this hotel when we had to call last minute for a private car to pick us up at port and it was no problem. My expectations (which are very high) kept being met or beat. Upon arrival we were greeted by management. We arrived earlier than check in so they offered to hold our luggage, gave us umbrella's (since it was slightly raining) and suggested several cafe's in the nearby areas. This hotel is close to cafe's, restaurants, monuments, museums, cathedrals, shopping... Upon our return, management showed us to our room which they freely upgraded to a fabulous suite (we were celebrating 20 yr anniversary). The hotel is adorned in great wall art and sculptors everywhere, including our suite. There is attention to every detail, too many to list here.
Although the roof top restaurant was closed (seasonal), we were told that room service could accommodate us there if desired. We opted to take in the views with a glass of wine, left for us in our suite. We have found our hotel for Rome. We love the modern and artsy feel. Location is perfect for eating, sightseeing and shopping. We can't wait to return.
