This hotel is clean and comfortable, but the service is not very warm. The reception desk and the concierge are willing to help, but you have to really pursue them. The breakfast was very basic, but ok. The service staff at breakfast was also just acceptable. They were efficient, but not friendly. However, the location of the hotel is excellent and the rooms are a decent size, given the fantastic location. I literally did not take a cab anywhere. I walked to the Pantheon (less than one minute), the Colosseum, the Jewish Ghetto, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Borghese Gallery (a bit of a hike), with no problem. This is a great hotel if you don't need hand holding. If you do need a little hand holding, it is still a good bet for the money.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Who we are The history of the Albergo Santa Chiara begins in 1939. At the first it was a "wine-shop" then changed into a small inn, enlarged in the following years, the 10 rooms of the first days have become now 96, distributed in 3 adjoining buildings. In one of them is located the Saint Catherine from Siena's Chapel. The old lobby, on the contrary, has become a theatre. You can't miss a short chat at one of the table of our open-air bar, quiet and private, that overlooks the Minerva Square. The most affectionate guests love the wide and classic styled rooms, younger prefers the modern and high-tech ones. The hotel service is impeccable, the rooms are very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. You will find this is a friendly, relaxed hotel that will make you feel right at home.
