We stayed at this hotel during a recent trip to Rome and had booked 2 rooms and it was one of the most amazing experiences ever. Everything about this place is perfect. We opted for their transfer service to/from the international airport ( costs extra but is absolutely worth it) . The staff was always smiling , courteous and ready to help us with our questions (whether it was about places to eat in the area or getting a cab, etc.).
In terms of location ,the hotel is situated on a quiet street and is at a walking distance from the Spanish steps (5 mins) ... maybe 20-25 mins from Trevi Fountain and a little longer (about 45 mins to an hour) from the Vatican... we rarely used a cab during our visit because the walk is fun with lots of shops and cafes on the way and a 1 hr walk to the Vatican doesn't feel that long at all
Our rooms were tastefully decorated with nice views of the street and the gardens ..the rooms were very quiet and the beds were comfortable (not amongst the most comfortable beds we have slept in but respectable)...One added benefit was that we could even watch the fireworks on New Year's eve from our balcony .
The only downside to the location is that there are not as many restaurants in the area and the food choices are rather limited . You would need to walk 20 -25 mins or more(or get a cab) to get to many of the top restaurants in Rome. We did try the Dinner at the "La Terrasse" restaurant at the hotel but it was a disappointment and frankly, one of the low points of the stay.
Overall, we would highly recommend the hotel and would definitely stay here again.
