“Romantic setting, Beautiful view, Great staff!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2010

From the second you walk through the revolving doors, Simone greets you with a smile and helps your every need. The hotel is really pretty...we received a free drink upon arrival, which was nice. They also gave us a free shuttle from the airport which was about a 20 minute trip, so that was a great penny saver for us. The room was sooo romantic and decorated just like a roman palace. We had a full marble shower and a beautiful view of Rome from our window, which we could open and look out at night. We were extremely happy with the central location to the Trevi fountain and spanish steps. Our favorite was the porter Simone...he was so sweet and helpful!!!! Would highly recommend..

Staff in general were pleasant and helpful. Our room although in a quirky place, ( in a separate apartment building next door, very 1930's which I loved). The room itself was roomy, clean, freshly decorated with a lovely shower, plenty of towels and toiletries and a fairly comfortable bed. We paid 99 euros for the room per night booking 6 months in advance. The room was titled as a junior suite with a bottle of spumante, more like a double room. The receptionist suggested we have our spumante in the bar, it was brought to us in an ice bucket with flutes, nice touch ! We found some lovely restaurants; "Otello alla Concordia" near to the spanish steps and "Wanted" just along from the colosseum. Lovely food and service. The best ice-cream we had was to your left as you face the Trevi fountain. The prices at Piazza Navona are not too bad, 15 euros for a bottle of red wine, small ice-cream 2 euros.
There are alot of open top bus tour services which are great for hopping on and off. I would recommend the 110 company as their buses were more frequent and continued into the evening.
Dress code in the Vatican and most churches is strict, no bare flesh, 3/4 trousers ok but no shorts. Churches seem to close early on sunday.
Comfortable shoes are a must, we walked such alot in 2.5 days. Vatican 1 day, colosseum by day + by night, spanish steps by day + by night, Trevi Fountain By day + by night, Piazza Navona, Castle of Angels, The Forum, Palatine, Vittorianna Emmanuel, Bernini Piazza several times which is where we caught our tour bus. Even my comfy ecco's gave me blisters. I love the Italian culture so coupled with lots to look at we had a great time and will return.

I had this hotel booked for me with my girlfriend for my 21st birthday. There are far too many people on this website who are expecting hotels to look like those in typical cities, if you want to holiday in true Rome, this is the place to stay. The decoration is fantastic and the rooms are clean, classic and luxurious! The position is in a good area and is within walking distance to all of the main amenities and sights.

We had a room on the sixth floor with views all over Rome and a roman style Jacuzzi bath. Our trip was truly magical and would not have been without the hotel and its staff!

Each day a good healty breakfast is served on the top floor where you can again see all over Rome and hear the bells on the churces ringing!

Very helpful English speaking staff who were efficient and friendly. Room was clean and well appointed although the decoration would not to have been to everyones' taste and the carpet was stained in one place. Shower powerful but not particularly easy to control due to holder being broken. Air con worked well and although on the first floor and on reasonably busy roads, the room was quite. Location excellent with all the major attractions being within easy reach and a good selection of restaurants close by. Continental breakfast served on seventh floor with superb views over the city was perfectly acceptable without being outstanding. Overall, ideal for a short city break in Rome.

This hotel is truly magnificent in its decor cleanliness and the rooms are wonderful, we were on the 6th floor of the anex building next door and the room had just undergone full refurbishment. We were disappointed that we were made to wait until almost 5pm to check in as the room was not ready so we left the bags and went out as the bar was closed.
Then we get to the staff, the bar is never manned and you wait for upto 15 mins for service, the rooftop bar is closed for the whole of august, it is also completely covered and not open like the pictures, you will only get one room key no matter what you say, the breakfast has nothing hot unless you like lots of toast, you can't even heat the croissant's.
However as a base to explore the beautiful city of Rome it is ideal.
I would rate this hotel as 2* service in a 4* hotel

Nice place, very clean. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good and substantial. Our room had a jacuzzi in, which was perfect after a long day walking round Rome! I would return if I ever go back to Rome.

This was the worse hotel we have stayed at bar none. The decor was tacky and cheap looking. The photos on the website are very mis-leading and look nothing like the real thing. we were on the 6th floor. the lift broke down and access card reader to our room did not work meaning the porter had to come with us each time we needed to go to our room. The manager was unhelpful and extremely arrogant .He never even tried to offer us an alternative room. We definitely would not recommend this hotel to anyone. location apart 2 star would be what this place deserved.
