I picked this hotel for its location and for the reviews I've read. It is near the Colosseum. It was 3 of us.
Room set-up: As you will see from the photos, our particular room had a king bed on one side and sofa sleeper separated by a 1/2 wall partition. There are outlets in the headboard making it convenient for charging phones, iPads, etc. Beds were comfortable to us. It felt like memory foam but I'm not sure. It was firm. There are cathedral ceilings and the room housed all 3 of us comfortably. Bathroom: Is large with the toilet, bidet, very large tub/shower. Everything you may need in a room is to be had here. (Fridge, safe, shelves to house clothes or misc items) We had a very nice view from the room.
Food: We ate most of our breakfast meals at this hotel. Various meats, eggs, croissants, other pastries, OJ, coffee or tea, dry cereals, fruit and yogurt. I'm probably missing a few. We also had a couple of nice dinners here as well. The tiramisu we had for dessert was the best we had in Rome! Note: There are so many restaurants outside the hotel as well. Rome has to have the best tasting food! The Staff: They were very accommodating and friendly. One of the front desk clerks suggested for just a little bit more $ we could have a personal tour guide and I'm glad we went that way. Karin from "Eyes of Rome" was so informative. We used her twice, for the Colosseum and the Vatican. Overall it was worth it all. We had a most enjoyable time in Rome!
