We are four adults who shared a room in Hotel Arenula in July 2013. As other reviewers have said, the location of this hotel cannot be beat. It is within perfect walking distance of the most interesting sites and yet it is not loud and overwhelming. We stayed on the 4th floor, which did mean lots of walking up stairs. We are all in decent health and shape and I did not think taking stairs is that bad but the stairs are sort of awkwardly spaced and spiraling, which I will say is both charming and annoying. The staff was consistently friendly and the rooms were always clean. The beds were a little on the hard side, but after a long day of wandering Rome, we always slept just fine. We did have some issues with the shower pressure wearing off for the morning-showers but when I showered at night it was fine. Another thing to note is that the WiFi only worked when you were downstairs in the reception area, and even then there were a few times that it did not work. This wasn't that big of a deal, but of the 5 hotels we stayed in over our vacation in Europe, this is the only hotel we were in where the WiFi didn't work in the rooms. Breakfast was generally good, served continental style and included coffee, juice, croissants, cream cheese, other cheeses, crackers, fruits, yogurt, and cereal. I didn't care for the coffee but it was very easy to find other places with awesome coffee later.The days we were in Rome it was very, very hot and luckily the A/C worked great. I would definitely recommend this hotel based on its location and cleanliness. The way I see it is you're not spending much time in the hotel anyway, so you may as well save some money and just get a room that is clean and comfortable.
