We arrived at the hotel at 11 am and were thrilled to find our room ready. Normally a room would not be ready until 3 pm or so. We were also thrilled to find our room had a king size bed! My husband is 6'4" and most hotels in Italy have doubles. The room was just lovely with a full walk in closet. The bathroom had beautiful marble appointments and bathrobes and slippers were provided. The bed was extremely comfortable.
But the rooftop setting with a view of St. Peter's dome is the real star of this hotel. An extensive breakfast buffet is served from 7 to 10:30 am. Omelettes and eggs cooked to order. Cappuccinos made to order. My husband's came with a star made from chocolate dust! Hot and cold dishes and prosecco! The tables were beautifully arranged and set up. It was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
And when we ventured back upstairs at cocktail hour we had the pleasure of meeting Willie, the hotel's famous bartender. His drink choices were always correct and he served wonderful warm small paninis and olives and other snacks with the drinks.
The location of the hotel couldn't be better. A stone's throw from the Vatican but also away from the main tourist congestion. There was a market a few blocks away where we bought some supplies. There was wonderful shopping for blocks and blocks and restaurants within a few steps that were fantastic. And I mean restaurants where locals were eating as well as us lowly tourists. I had a cheese ravioli with a sage and walnut cream sauce that was to die for.
I can't think of enough good things to say about this hotel! There were children here as well and it seemed to have families and couples of all ages staying here. And all nationalities.
