I recently stayed here during the first 2 nights of my tour with Insight Vacations and I had a great time.
The hotel is charming and historic and in a great location -- 5 minutes walk from the fashionable Via Veneto and maybe 15 minutes from the Spanish Steps. Plenty of cafes and shops nearby and it's in a great neighborhood as well (I had a splendid walk every morning and it was just lovely).
The breakfast is served on the top floor which overlooks the entire city and is very impressive. The breakfast was delicious and served buffet style, except for the eggs and bacon, which were served hot to order. If you want to work up an appetite then you can opt to walk up to the top (7th) floor for breakfast instead of taking the elevator :) There's a balcony that's accessible from the breakfast area where you can take great pictures of the entire city.
The decor was flamboyantly Italian but in a cute way. Lots of golds and reds and typical renaissance vibes. I found it rather charming. The rooms were on the small side, but after all it is a historic hotel in the city center. It's not a behemoth 5000 room Las Vegas hotel.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful -- all spoke English. And the bartenders were superb! They had great espresso, beer, wine and cocktails and all at decent prices.
It was a great start to a great trip!
