We stayed 10 days at the fortyseven and have no complaints whatsoever. Location, location, location if you are in Rome for sightseeing. Walking distance (if you are into walking) from most ruins and places of interest and a short cab ride for most others. As we received the New Years at the Coliseum we had a great time and at our return to the hotel were pleasantly surprised by a nice little party the hotel had at the circus restaurant in the top level. The fortyseven is a boutique style hotel that is well kept with a lot of attention to detail, the rooms are spacious for Roman standards and they feature full blind mechanical curtains that comes handy as your biological clock adjust from the time zone change if you are a traveler that comes from the other side of the big pawn. "American" style breakfast is served every morning and you can get CNN in English in the room. A nice little bar stocked with the basics is offered in the rooms as well. Staff is always willing to help and make arrangements should you need tickets to get into any of the attractions. In summation a very, very good experience.
