This is a lovely hotel, well situated near the Spanish Steps. It's beautifully maintained and has a very nice bar on its roof and comfortable and well-designed rooms that are of good size. It's the kind of hotel one would be glad to visit anywhere in the world.
But I'll tell you what will make you remember this hotel long after you forget what the rooms look like: the staff, especially the front-desk staff.
It was our first trip to Europe and we arrived at 10 a.m.on a Friday, tired and grubby from a long flight. We were about five hours early for check-in and desperately wanted showers and a nap. With not much hope I walked up to the reception desk and while the concierge checked my papers I asked if there were a chance of an early check-in. He'd already started working on it. The hotel was pretty full, he said while working the computer, but our room was vacant and he'd have housekeeping bump it to the top of the list. If we'd care to have some breakfast in the restaurant he'd make sure the room was ready within an hour.
It was no big deal to him, and it might not seem like one to you, but at that moment it felt like a gift to us, and it was typical of the kind and thoughtful way the staff treated us throughout our visit.
We had a wonderful time in Italy, and we can't wait to return. And when we do, I know just where we will stay.
