Off the Main Street this is a quaint little hotel with character. No internet in the room but available free in the foyer. Small rooms but very functional and clean. Good breakfast included and the reception was incredibly helpful. For what we paid we were more than happy with our stay here. There's a fantastic little Italian casual cafe that the locals frequent. Turn left outside the hotel then right at the first street and it's across the road after about 50 meters.
Hotel itself is only 15 minutes from the Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain etc. Longer walk to St Paul's Basilica.

Room Tip: Apparently some rooms do have internet. If that's important then make sure you ask before checki...

What some call charming and original, I call tired. The room was large as was the bathroom but we would have appreciated a modern updating of both the room and the bathroom.
the location is excellent and the staff was fair.
They presented us with a 48 Euro bill when we were leaving for "city tax". It turned out to be an error. Should have been 7 Euro. Bad mistake.

This is a lovely hotel which is well placed for a sightseeing break. We were there for 3 nights and walked everywhere from here. 15 mins walk to Termini; 15 to Trevi Fountain; 50 mins to Vatican.
The hotel is very pleasant and comfortable. Huge bed: good spec of room, huge, slightly tired bathroom; bathrobes / slippers/ bed turned down etc; lovely breakfast. Promised wifi in public areas did not allow iPad / iPhone access for us and another guest. Much needed Air con in room wouldn't go below 22 -which was too warm overnight (Rome was having a hot spell!)
Staff were very friendly indeed and were great in pointing out what to do, how to get there, routes, suggestions etc.
Good to get to decent restaurants; Hard Rock Cafe also round the corner!

It was my first time in Rome and me and my partner were very pleased to find this charming and original hotel right in the centre of the city! From our balcony,I had the feeling I'm On my way! an island,having a vacation! The room was very spacious,clean and welcoming(fresh fruits and wine with compliments)....I've never seen such a huge bed in any other hotel! The view was great,romantic terrace,clean bathroom and very friendly and helpful staff! We got plenty of options for breakfast and the coffee was delicious!We'll come back for sure,as Rome is a city close to my heart!

The entrance wasn't too fancy, but as soon as you went into the hotel, you could see the boutique lobbies and bar area. It is something you would never experience in the big name hotels. Very private and exclusive. The Breakfast is excellent. Lots and lots of choices and tastes good too. The rooms are comfy. And the best aspect of this hotel is the service, it is excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. A truly unique experience indeed.

I have stayed at this place numerous times - in fact, every time I go to Rome. It has basic rooms with private bathroom and is clean, offers a continental breakfast, and you cannot beat the location. There is even a chapel on one of the floors. You won't find anything as nice for this price so close to the Vatican. I highly recommend this hotel. The Sisters who operate this hotel use the income to support an orphanage in Peru. This is a real gem in the heart of the Vatican!

A lovely hotel in a great location. Olde World charm with a nice ambience, spacious rooms and huge bathrooms. The front desk staff are excellent, although the breakfast room lady needs to loose the attitude. In saying that though the breakfast is quite good. They don't tell you but they will prepare eggs to order, and will make a good expresso coffee, rather than the "Americano" (yuck) on offer. This is the perfect home away from home and a perfect location for walking Rome.
