“Fantastic service, fab location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

My colleague and I had a fantastic 3 night stay in Rome thanks to this hotel. Our luggage got lost in Bangkok and the owner, Patrizia was super helpful in facilitating its return to us, such that we didn't miss out on any sight seeing time. The rooms are small but the shower pressure is great - what more do you need when you are out and about seeing everything Rome has to offer? Walking distance from everything - namely the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, which we consider Rome highlights.

I lived not in hotel but in their apartments not far from the hotel.
Hotel's location is very convenient especially if your main goal is shopping.
There are many places to eat near of it (I strongly recommend Sofia osteria on perpendicular street!).
You even can go to opera in Margarite salon in front of the hotel. I'm sure it's very conceptual to touch this kind of art on it's motherland :)

My wife and I had a great stay at this small, 11-room hotel, located a block from the Spanish Steps, three blocks from Trevi Fountain. The staff were great, especially Patrizia, whose English is excellent.
We had been a bit concerned before booking our stay, mainly because of a few negative reviews, which must have been written by people not quite used to staying in Rome and were unhappy with the size of the lobby (it's tiny but adequate), the elevator (small but great when the weater is hot because the rooms are on the fourth floor - just don't forget to close the doors) or the breakfast (croissants, pastries, freshly made coffee, yogurt, fruits and cheese).
We were totally happy with the breakfast provided, which we ate every morning at the table on our private balcony (we stayed in the Bernini room; there are also four other morning-sun balconies, including the Michaelangelo and Bottecelli rooms).
The rooms were a decent size (bigger than rooms I've stayed in in London and Paris) with nice woodwork, hardwood floors and comfy beds) and the air conditioning worked (we only used the first night - the rest of our stay we kept the double doors leading to our balcony ajar slightly, to allow cooler night air in the room, which was slightly noisy, but after walking 10 miles a day, we usually had no trouble sleeping).
The bathroom was also a good size with a shower, sink, toilet, bidet and built-in hair dryer. Towels and soap were changed daily. There was also a mini bar which he only used to cool the local wine we bought (you can get a fabulous bottle for 10 Euros).
This is a small boutique-style hotel - if you want luxury and a big lobby, this is not the place for you. But if you, like us, are looking for a reasonably priced room in a great location, this is a good choice.
A tip for those considering booking. Book directly through the hotel's website:
http://www.hotelpiccolo.it/
You can book through such sites as venere.com, but they add on their commission to the room prices, which start at 120 Euros (rooms with balconies are slightly more, especially in high season, which includes October because the weather is perfect - it was sunny and 30 degrees C every day of our stay).
Low season includes July and August because it gets unbearably hot in Rome then (40 degrees C and higher for weeks on end this past summer); Romans flee the city during July and August and go on seaside holidays or head to cooler homes in the country.
Another tip: the hotel offers a 20 per cent discount on room rates if you pre-pay a month in advance.
On last tip: you can get a Roma transit/museum pass that costs 30 Euros and covers three days of transit (bas, train and subway) and free admission to the first two museums and reduced rates after that for other museums.

This hotel is located between the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, a great spot for easily reaching many attractions in the heart of Rome. It's also nice to be able to pop back into the hotel at any time. I stayed here 4 nights, and found it to be very comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful regarding transportation and information about local attractions. The room is a decent size for a single with ensuite, and was kept clean. The breakfast was continental style with bread, croissants, cereal, yogurt , fruit and coffee or tea. There is a machine in the breakfast area where you can get a coffee or tea at any time, which I found very convenient. The hotel is on the 4th floor of an older building, and has a lift. There is not a 24 hr reception, but it was easy to let yourself in and out and the entrance was secure. I really enjoyed my few days there, and would stay there again if I return to Rome...that is if that coin in the Trevi Fountain works it's magic!

This hotel is very centrally located but not on a major street...so it's quiet. The rooms are small but adequate. I had a superior room w/balcony and it was nice...must tell you that I had the room by myself so space was not an issue.

Room Tip: definitely get a superior room, I believe there are only 3 so book well in advance.

This hotel is centrally located and the manager is cordial. Nothing else is commendable. The lobby is a closet like room which is not always staffed. Our room was clean but very small. The view unlike the pictures on the web site, was of scaffolding on the adjacent building almost within arms length. The breakfast room is small and food offering very limited. The T.V. did not work. We were not in Rome to watch T.V., but it should have functioned. We stayed at hotels and agriturismos from Milan to Venice to Florence to Rome and in between.
Rome is teriffic. This Hotel was the only disappointment and not worth 180 euros per night, even at Rome prices.
