With such a reasonable rate I wasn't expecting a whole lot other than a clean room close to the major attractions of ancient Rome, but I got a lot more than expected, mostly due to the owner (?), Lorenzo, an extremely affable guy who speaks English, Italian, and Chinese and seems to run the place (we saw his son there behind the desk at one point, but other than that, Lorenzo seems to do it all). He greeted us at the door, put our bags in the elevator, brought us a huge, cold bottle of water upon our arrival from the train station (about a 15 minute walk with heavy bags, less if you're unencumbered), and showed us a map of the city, explaining how to get everywhere. He looked up something on the Internet for us at one point (the hotel has WiFi but we didn't have a computer or phone) and delivered a nice breakfast each morning (yogurt, pastries, hard boiled eggs, orange juice, coffee and milk). As other reviews state, the location is superb, and the room we had, despite opening onto the main street (which is quite busy, Via Cavour), was completely quiet. The air conditioning worked very well and we used it to cool down after hiking about the city in 100 degree heat. But Lorenzo is really what makes this such a perfect place to stay. We agreed we felt as if we were staying in a guest room in his home. Stay here, you will not be disappointed!
