I didn't want to write this review until we had spent more time in other Italian hotels to compare as I found some things a little odd about Hotel Grifo.
First let me say that the staff here are absolutely fantastic and really will help you "survive" Rome. Heed their advices and your stay in the city will be enhanced enormously.
Now the hotel. In a great location within easy walking distance of the Forums & Colleseo. Not too far from Pantheon & Piazza Navona. A bit further to Trevi & Spanish steps but only a short distance to the Cavour metro station for easy access to these other attractions or use the hop on/off bus service from the Colleseum to get to Vatican and sites in the north. (Red one is most crowded but travels most often). Rooms are small but not the smallest in Rome and clean. Breakfast is served fresh in the hotel each day with additional selections available for a nominal charge. Beds - they are short. At first we thought this may be an "Italian" thing but we have not encountered elsewhere during our travels. Our feet hung over the edge of the bed which was hard as a rock. This was in the more expensive 'balcony' room so I do not know what the other rooms would be like. If you are looking for a quirky stay with fabulous local insider knowledge, then stay here. If you prefer the standard comforts of a 'regular' hotel - then look elsewhere.
