The Hotel Lunetta has a great location, just a block from the Piazza Campo de Fiori where there are many restaurants, bars, gelato shops, bakeries, and street fairs. We walked from the hotel to the Vatican and the Colisseum in the other direction -- it is all very easy to explore from this hotel. The Piazza de Navonna is just a couple blocks away, the Pantheon about 4 blocks. The only taxi that was needed was to get to and from the Roma Termini (train station) and the airport.
The room was smaller than I expected, with the bed taking up the majority of the floorspace. But it was comfortable, and we didn't spend much time in the room. The place was sparkling clean and the maid service was good.
I had continual problems with the WiFi (from phone and laptop). The front desk staff were polite in helping, but they seemed to be well aware that their WiFi stunk and the hotel has apparently not done anything to address this. The "fix" was (repeatedly) to call the hotel IT 'expert' who has the staff cycle power to the Wireless Access points. This was frustrating since we really needed to access the internet a couple of times for ticketing purposes and couldn't connect.
The spa should have been fantastic, but it fell short of expectations. The large hydrotherapy pool needed to be much hotter, and the jets were pretty weak. The pool was also not very clean - there was a slimey feel to the tiles in places indicating it should have been cleaned better. The massage was disappointing - not deep or hard enough and the communication was not good enough to tell the masseuse what to do different. The steam room had a bad smell to it too. Overall it was a shame since, with the bit better maintenance, the spa would be wonderful - the facilities really are beautiful.
Breakfast was included and it was very good. A selection of scrambled eggs, pastries, bacon or sausage, ham, breads, cheeses, juices, and wonderful espresso/cappachino. The service staff was always attentive and polite.
The front desk staff were very nice and pleasant.
