“Central location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

This hotel is centrally located, making most of the attractions within easy walking distance. The metro is located almost next door if you prefer to let the train take the strain.

The staff were all extremely polite and helpful, but I did feel that the hotel was a little dated and lacking in facilities. That combined with the exorbitant prices, means we will not be returning here

Stayed January 2013, traveled with family

Was on a 5 day break with my husband. Firstly given the wrong room then eventually got to the right one but was a challenge as the porter could not speak or understand a single word of English. Was exactly as we expected it. Breakfast was good but the staff were not as friendly as expected. On one of the days our room was left open by housekeeping. Not at all impressed with this service. Overall the location was brilliant. All places in walking distance but accessible by tube which is right outside the hotel. Would recommend the hotel but have to raise service standards to meet 5 star rating.

Stayed for a business meeting in this good location hotel, near Rome center. Business amenities are good, rooms just an average. Far not a 4 star hotel level. Breakfast was really good, staff friendly. Internet expensive.

We stayed for a long weekend and had booked a suite. The hotel staff spoke good English and the room was beautifully appointed. The breakfast were fine for a hotel of its class but the real treat is the rooftop restaurant. whether you just fancy a cocktail or a full meal this is a wonderful spot with exquisite food. I would certainly recommend this hotel to any looking for somewhere special to stay in Rome.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in late December 2012 as part of our Adventures by Disney tour of Italy. The rooms were quite nice and relatively large for "big city" hotel-rooms. We had a king bed (a rare thing in Europe, as most hotels have two twins pushed together) with an adjoining room for the kids. The beds were very comfortable, the linens were nice, and the bathrooms were lovely. The location of this hotel is excellent, as it is a short walk to the Trevi fountain and Spanish Steps, and walkable to many other interesting sites in Rome. The concierge was excellent, as he worked tirelessly to contact the airport and airline to locate the luggage lost by our airline.

The negatives of thsi hotel were that we had a hard time controlling the temperature of our room. We often got hot, requiring us to open the windows which brought in more street noise. (There already was some street noise with the windows closed, but that is to be expected in a large city.) Also, I'm always put-off by having to pay for wifi at nice hotels, and this hotel does not offer free wifi (and it was not included in our tour package).

We did eat breakfast at the hotel, which was included with our package. The buffet was standard fare (although I could have done without the watery scrambled eggs). The service was very good, however.

All in all, this is a good hotel for our fun stay in Rome.

Room Tip: My guess is that higher is better. We were lower and had a bit of street noise.

I booked this hotel for a 4 night stay on the strength of the good reviews here. Arriving too early for check-in, the friendly reception staff took care of my luggage and gave me a discount voucher for lunch at their rooftop restaurant. It was a lovely november day and I was the first customer at the restaurant which commands great views of the city's roof-scape. My waiter was charming and attentive and I had a delicious lunch. I would have gone back if not for the many restaurants and cafes nearby the central location of this delightful hotel.
My room was spacious, clean and the large double bed was comfortable. Windows open out to a side street and being on the 6th floor traffic noise was minimal. I had a similar hot-but-suddenly-cold-then-hot shower as described by some reviewers but only on one morning.
Almost everywhere was accessible with the Metro only a minute away. I was able to walk to most places of interest from the hotel. The friendly doorman Stefano gave me a useful tip for going to St Peter's Square and the Vatican on the electric-powered bus from opposite the hotel which offered a more interesting and scenic route than the metro and cheaper than a taxi. The reception staff gave me names of nearby restaurants with directions where I could find a good meal. Breakfast was plentiful and varied and I liked looking out on to the Piazza Barberini and the morning traffic which was never too busy. Despite the crowded breakfast room each morning, I was satisfied with the service. A real find, will definitely return.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms, if facing a side street, have less traffic noise even with windows open.
