We travelled to Rome in July 2013 for our honeymoon and this was the hotel where we stayed for the full week. We were not disappointed. The rooms were very clean, spacious and the air conditioning was a blessing. Our room had a view over Rome and of the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore which was amazing. The basilica is also visible from the roof terrace where breakfast is served and where the bar and restaurant are situated for the evening.
All staff were helpful and very polite with great English; from the maids, to front desk, to waiters and porters. We booked trips through the hotel and the staff were very helpful with this and even checked on details of the trips when we asked. We were greeted warmly every day by all staff and really made to feel welcome.
We did not eat in the restaurant as it just didn't serve food to our liking (two very fussy eaters here and not a reflection on the restaurant) but we did eat downstairs in the caffe area and it was very nice. The staff were helpful and even made us something that was not on the menu which was greatly appreciated.
The hotel was a perfect base for our stay in Rome; very close to some major sights and walking distance from Termini station and Vittorio Emanuele metro station. When we return to Rome (the Trevi Fountain tradition has ensured we will) we will look to stay here again as it was perfect for us.
(Oh and the ice-cream shop just next door is amazing too)
