We spent two nights in this hotel prior to boarding a cruise ship for a week, and then one night before our return home to Canada. The entrance is at street level, and then down a staircase. The lobby is only one loveseat big, with the dining room adjoined. The dining room only comfortably holds about half the guests. The rest must wait or dine standing. We walked everywhere as taxis charge from the time they are dispatched, starting off with at least a 8 euro charge on the meter. We found this hotel to be in a fair location for walking, taking us aprox half an hour to get to the main tourist area of Rome - ie. the Trevi fountain, Spanish Steps, etc. This is a true European hotel, so beware if you're coming from North America and expect North American Standards. The elevator (and thankfully this hotel had one) honestly fit two adults, and two suitcases. The elevator door was as wide only as my bag. We had quite a laugh over this. The rooms and beds are clean, but stark. The bathroom certainly was clean to North American standards. We couldn't find a stopper for the tub and had to wad up toilet paper in a baggie. I needed to phone Canada, and couldn't dial out, and the fellow at the front desk was simply rude to me when I asked him for help. He would NOT help, and I never did get to complete my call. Perhaps this happens everywhere?! The continental breakfast was cold but sufficient, with only butter for condiments. Mustard would have been nice for a ham and cheese croissant. Every continental breakfast is a different story. Nice to have free wi-fi with just a code from the front desk. On our last evening, we were offered a room with a small terrace; sadly we were exhausted and couldn't even enjoy it. I think I'd ask if a terrace were available right off next time . We did buy a bottle of wine at a local grocery, and they allowed us to drink it in their dining room while we played a game. They even offered us their corkscrew as we didn't have one. Overall a quaint hotel, clean, quiet - no complaints really.
