Excel Navona is a new, small boutique hotel at 3-star level. Once a school, now there is a hotel with 18 modern rooms. Excel Navona is a small City hotel with limited facilities. My room (# 206) was of a good size, had a good bed, but a bit short for tall people from Northern Europe. The bathroom was clean and neat, with a bathtub and shower in the bath. The shower hose is far too short, and therefore one can not stand under the shower. The entire hotel, rooms and hallways are lined with marble, so inevitable noise from other guests. My room was opposite the elevator, so sometimes noise from guests waiting for the elevator and talking. The rooms are equipped with a Nesprsso coffee machine, a safe and have ample hanging and storage space for clothes. The air conditioning works perfectly, which is essential during hot summer times in the old center of Rome. Excel Navona has a small breakfast room, with an extensive breakfast buffet and here also a good Nespresso Coffee machine. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they speak excellent english. Hotel Excel Navona is right in the old center of Rome, between Pantheon and Piazza Novona, both a 5-minute walk away. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel are many good restaurants, even at Michelin star level, e.g Il Convivio and Hostaria dell'Orso at the end of Via dell'Orso. Do not mix up the latter with "dell'Orso 80" halfway through the Via dell'Orso. If you prefer a typical Italian restaurant with good food and Italian ambience, opt for Lagana, next to the hotel.
