Casa Montani is a unique property; a former townhouse converted into five guestrooms. We spent 18 nights in the suite and were spoiled. Rooms are soundproof and street noise is almost nonexistent. Sleek decor and furnishings, great in-room lounge for breakfasts brought daily by cart, and enjoying a glass of wine at the end of a busy day. Hermes amenities are another special touch. The owners and staff are extraordinary hosts; they are keen to suggest daily activities, restaurants, give advice on anything Roman. We cannot say enough about the graciousness and attention given guests. The location is brilliant. A block away is the entrance to Borghese Park, a haven for locals and residents. Piazza Popolo across the street affords access to three major streets through central Rome; Babuino, Ripetta, and Via Corso. Restaurants, high fashion corridors, hotels are all within easy reach on foot. For travellers jaded by big hotels or mediocre lodging, this is the alternative offering individual attention, lovely surroundings and an elegant neighbourhood.
