Stayed one night in November at this charming hotel. The location is great, near Villa Borghese and a few minutes walk from the Spanish Steps.
I checked in around 10 am on a Sunday and they had a room ready for me. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. As a Starwood platinum, I was upgraded to a very large room with a balcony overlooking Via Venetto.
The hotel is very old and looks it. In some ways, the age imparts some charm, in others, it looks outdated. The bathroom was nice and very clean. The shower was great.
Overall this is a very nice hotel. Starwood ranks it the same as the St. Regis, which is not accurate. While it is nice, the St. Regis is considerably nicer in terms of amenities, furnishings, bedding and ambiance.
