We would recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed for six nights/seven days and really enjoyed our time at the Smeraldo. The location was EXCELLENT. Every major site was within walking distance for the average walker--the hotel is an equal distance from the Vatican, the Spanish Steps, and the Coliseum. Good restaurants, ATMs, nice shops, tabacchi (for phone cards, stamps, and postcards) were all within two blocks of the hotel. The rooms were impeccably cleaned everyday with all towels changed everyday and all the little soaps and shampoos refilled. The breakfast each morning was more than adequate and an excellent way to get ready for a long day at the sites--no hot food but a good array of baked good, cereal, yogurt, etc. Room 100 was slightly small for two people but all European hotel rooms are I suppose, and the bathroom was quite large. The only complaint that we had was that the room was quite damp and a bit cool in the evenings even with the heat on, but other rooms did not seem to have this problem. The staff isn't particularly friendly, but always willing to try and help. For great food at a good price try S. Anna's Ristorante (just a few steps away to the right!) and for cheap food try Insalata Ricca right off Corso Emmanuel a couple blocks away.
