When we first arrived we were a little taken aback by the lack of a front desk or lobby. Its basically a room with a PC that the single staff person used to check in guests. Just made us wonder what the rooms were like. The music motif was definately different and some of the decor was very creative such as using a stack of graters in a frame for wall decoration. The one thing I didn't like about the decor was the use of snare drums as night stands. Very inefficient and impractical. I hope they add even simple night stands next to the bed. After that though everything was great. The room was well kept, neat and clean. The bathrooms seemed new. The rooms are somewhat small though with not much closet space. Beds were firm. I had to book a triple to guarantee two beds. The nice surprise was the complimentary breakfast in the mornings. Mostly continental but they did provide scrambed eggs and bacon. They also have a small courtyard next to the restaurant which is a great to eat in. Also well kept and clean. Overall a great little hotel. Just don't expect the big hotel experience. I'd stay their again. Location was in a quiet neighborhood but aside from being close to the vatican there wasn't a whole lot around us. That can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. I'll probably pick a location closer to the inside City to be closer to shops and more restaurants.
