On our third trip to Rome and we picked this hotel based primarily on its central location, tripadvisor reviews and website photos...
Although I would take a guess that the professional photos may have been taken a few years ago and the rooms were a little on the small side, they were very clean and with their large windows facing the piazza & basilica of St Maria Sopra Minerva (not to mention the rear of the Pantheon), we were all delighted with our choice of hotel.
We also dined one fine but chilly evening in the wonderful rooftop restaurant. The food & service were excellent but I guess the views would be even better in the summer months when the weatherproofing is completely removed and the dining truly alfresco!
However, as our stay wore on it became apparent that the real gems were in fact the hotel staff! From the very friendly and helpful reception & concierge to the infectiously happy doorman, not to mention the charming, storytelling bartender - who all in their own way, went that little extra for us (and the tips, naturally).
But it is the culmination of all of this that made our long weekend in Rome a very enjoyable stay indeed!
