More or less incidentially choosen, this hotel was one of the best we've ever visited!
First it is perfectly located for a city trip and to explore Rome. One can walk to a large number of sights and monuments and if you're staying there, you can breathe the eternal city's spirit! It could be hard to find a more authenitc situation.
On the other hand, the hotel seems to be newly renovated. It's clean, it's bright, it's georgous! We booked a double suite for a (MHO) very affordable price (to be honest we realized just there, that we really got a suite for that price). It was LARGE and simply perfect with a living room towards frontside and a look onto the piazza in front of the hotel. And the bedroom to backwards with a window to the backyards. Everything new and shiny and working and just delightful!
People were very kind and helpful. Beds were good, we liked the not too soft mattresses. Bath was as great as the rest.
Of course there were some "shades of grey"... This is not a calm place! It's LOUD - even with the windows closed. There is a bar (Bar del Fico) in the building which has it's dining-hall in the backyard making a hell of a noise until about midnight - then it will be calm. We sleeped anyway with closed windows which was not to hard to do - or we went to bed late enough.
This place is hard to find. Google gives about 4 possible and mostly wrong locations where the hotel is and it has only a very small writing above the entreance. Look for the "Bar del Fico" and Piazza del Fico! Take the Piazza Navone as help for orientiation when you are there.
They sell tickets for "Green Line Tours" (GLT) Busses at the desk that we really CANNOT RECOMMEND. Start by walking around and get bus tickets later if you still think you need them.
They bring beakfast to the room with no additional charge - but you won't get everything (no egg, no ham, no granola). Try the beakfast room! There are few tables out in the lane where it is just lovely!
Can nothing say about Spa - we would not even think about loosing our time there while being in Rome!!
