Waking up to a window overlooking the Pantheon is pretty freaking cool. That was my absolute favorite part of this place.
We stayed in a 2-room suite on the top floor. The hotel contacted me in advance to ask how I'd like each room set up for sleeping (twin beds or double). It was nice to be asked (points for service here!) but the second room ended up being so tiny that we couldn't close the door against the double bed. Also, only one room in the suite overlooks the Pantheon while the other overlooks a roof. Thankfully, we got my mom a second room (in advance). The second room in our suite was really only good for a single twin... though it is nice to have the option of a double if you don't need privacy like we did.
The rooms otherwise were clean and nice, nothing too fancy. I love that housekeeping made up our 2-year-old daughter's bed with her favorite dolls each day. The main room of our suite was also more spacious and comfortable than the second room, which we ended up using for luggage.
The breakfast across the piazza was good with a decent selection of hot and cold foods. Great to be able to sit indoors or out. Cappuccinos are made to order.
I did have an issue on Rome Marathon day. I was running the race and needed a taxi to get there. I asked the front desk about getting one and was told the taxi couldn't get me to the race because the roads were already closed. Panic! I instantly worried about having to rush off and jog myself a couple of miles to the start of a marathon. Luckily, I walked out the door and immediately found a taxi - next to the Pantheon - that drove me directly to the race starting area. No road closures in sight yet. It would have been fine if the guy at the front desk told me he was not sure about the roads, but he could have at least tried to help me find a taxi driver who would really know what's going on.
Overall, it was a good stay, and I'd consider staying again.
