I stayed 5 nights at the Roma Boutique Hotel, with no regrets at all. I based my choice on the reviews here on TripAdvisor, since this was my first visit to Rome.
They had arranged a car/driver to pick me up at the airport, and even though my flight was delayed and didn't arrive until 1:00am, the driver was there.
The room was moderate in size. I've stayed in smaller and larger, so I'd say just about right. It was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The bathroom was modern and lovely, with a beautiful shower with plently of water pressure and good hot water. The toiletries were Etro.
The breakfast tray arrived exactly as requested each day. The pastries were fine, the cereal was good, the coffee was good, and the yogurt and juice good. Lots of choices of jams, Nutella, honey, butter, and cream cheese to use on the breads. It wasn't fancy, but was a good way to start the day without having to go out to a restaurant.
There were a couple of little things I would like different. First, a kettle in the room would have been really nice, although they will get you boiled water ANY TIME.
Second, I was in room 28 which just happened to be next to the station where they make the breakfast trays up. The room clearly shared a wall with where the espresso machine was, and I could hear it "steaming" from first thing in the morning, to night. It wasn't terrible, but it was there.
Lastly, like most European cities, electricity is expensive and the room outlets, etc., are controlled by putting your card in a slot. Unfortunately, the bar fridge was attached to this cycle, so nothing was ever cold in the fridge, because every time I left the hotel, the power was off.
In the end, absolutely terrific stay. They recommended restaurants, including Hosteria Romana, The Forum Restaurant for pizza, and Papa Baccus right up the street from the hotel. All of their recommendations were great. In fact, the only time I had a disappointing meal was when I'd forgotten to ask for a recommendation and chose by myself.
Their is a Spar grocery store two doors down from the hotel, so you can get any food/drink stuff you need.
Walking to all major attractions is easy and pleasant. I walked to the Vatican, the Colloseum, and every other attraction on the tourist map.
Allessandro and his team make your stay really enjoyable and truly treat their guests as family.
I would highly recommend this boutique hotel (and have already) to anyone looking for a lovely, clean, friendly hotel, that is in a great location.
I will go back to Rome, and I will go back to the Roma Boutique Hotel.
Thank you, Allessandro!!!
