My friend and I just returned from our trip to Rome, and we thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay at the Hotel Donatello. We'd booked our trip through Virgin Vacations, and since they'd picked the hotel, we were a bit unsure of what to expect. Upon our arrival, however, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel exceeded all of our expectations. The daytime manager, Carlo was extremely helpful in every aspect of our vacation. He gave us excellent directions on a daily basis, and did everything he could to accommodate us during our stay. The daily breakfast outside on the terrace consisted of delicious baked goods that we could actually smell being baked when we would return to the hotel in the wee hours of the morning. They were served along with hot milk and coffee and fresh orange juice that made for an excellent start to our day. The hotel is in a very convenient location for the tram, bus, and metro station. We had no problem navigating the neighborhood around the hotel, and came upon a few lovely restaurants for lunch.
As two young, single girls traveling alone, safety was extremely important and we always felt safe at our hotel. You needed to be buzzed in to enter, and there was always someone at the front desk keeping an eye on things, no matter the hour. When we left our things in our room overnight while we traveled to Naples, we never once worried about whether or not they were safe. There is also a safe inside of the closet to put your most important items, so we found this to be helpful as well.
The rooms are clean and quaint and the marble floors and charming decor make you truly feel like you're in Rome. If you are looking for the huge living spaces and the overflowing continental breakfasts of American hotels, than I suggest you stay in America for your vacation. If you would like an authentic European experience with pleasant, accommodating staff members in a convenient location, then I highly recommend the Hotel Donatello.
