We stayed in both the Apartment A on arrival in Rome, and in the hotel itself for a single night on our way back out of Italy. The Apartment is nothing short of perfect for a family group. We travel as two adults and two kids aged 10 and 5, so getting reasonably priced accommodation that suits us is very hard, but the Apartment was fantastic.
It has such a spacious and homey feel about, but is still very modern and stylish in its interior. The apartment is immaculately maintained, and looks like it is almost brand new. There was loads of space for us and the kids, and the manager both organised very economical transport from the airport (after a 6am arrival) and met us at the apartment. Breakfast is served at the hotel, which is about 25m around the corner (and very convenient, despite what other reviewers might have written).
Best of all, the location is in the heart of the best part of Rome, with a number of lovely restaurants nearby, and the major train station for Rome only a 10 minute stroll up the road. We caught the train to Naples, and it was an easy walk even with luggage and children in tow. The main stop for the open top bus services is only a 5 minute walk away, and was our main means of transport for all our Roman sightseeing. There is also a supermarket 50m down the road, which allowed us to do a bit of self catering to suit the specific tastes of our kids, as well as stock up on local Chianti!
We had a family (quadruple) room for one night on the way out, which had a queen and two single bed, which was adequate for us. After having stayed in the apartment the quad room was a little cramped, but it was certainly well maintained, clean and suitable. Both mangers were perfect gentlemen, who greeted us with a smile every time we saw them, and made us feel very much at ease and comfortable.
All in all the Hotel Cortina, and especially the Apartment A, made our stay in Rome nothing short of perfect, and was a wonderful way to begin our Italian adventure!
