We booked 2 rooms for our family of 5 based on reviews here on Tripadvisor. We requested for our rooms to face the inner courtyard and we got exactly that. Our room was nicely furnished with balcony and a recliner and the bathroom was very clean. And my sister really liked the design of the sink..however the faucet must be turned on slowly and keep the water running low because the water will spill everywhere if turned up higher.
We enjoyed the breakfast selection...it was a little more than continental. My dad especially like the made to order cappuccino.
I read about the first step of the stairs being very dangerous and I actually tripped on it once. But no biggie...the hotel has put yellow cautionary stickers there to remind you.
The location is only a 10 minute walk to the Termini Station where restaurants,shops are abundant. We took the train to the FCO Airport on the last day and it only took half an hour.
We tried the Chinese restaurant for dinner inside the hotel , which was also the breakfast area in the morning. It has only been open for a few months by a friendly Chinese lady who has been living in Rome for 30 years. I know there are so many delicious eateries in Rome but if you are craving some Chinese food, try the steamed fish and fried rice noodles ONLY.
Overall, the hotel was a great base for exploring and we would love to be back.
Note: If you compare 4 star hotels in Italy to international 4 star hotel chains, you may be disappointed. Here, it is the charm of the room decor,charm of the cobbled streets and excellent location that add up together to be 4 stars.
