Located very close to the Spanish steps, and 5 minutes from the Trevi fountain, the Pincio was a great base for our group, who spent a minimal amount of time in their rooms or the hotel!
Check-in was handled efficiently at the Concordia hotel straight across the road, as The Pincio has no lobby area (the Concordia also stored our luggage on the last day). Breakfast is served in the conservatory on the top floor of The Pincio; it is basic but covers essential needs - tea, coffee, pastries, cereals, meat, cheese, boiled eggs, bread, jams and some unidentified juices.
The rooms are functional, clean and most are big enough to accommodate an extra single bed, so can sleep 3. The ensuite bathrooms were well designed and clean, with complimentary toiletries and a full set of fresh towels left daily.

The rooms at the back of the hotel are over the kitchens to a neighbouring restaurant which was a bit noisy sometimes.
