This elegant hotel, located in a quiet residential part of Prati, is a wonderful location from which to base a Rome sightseeing trip. The Vatican is about a 15 minute walk; we also walked to other places on the other side of the river like the Spanish Steps and the Forum, but the best news is the Lepanto Metro station is literally 50m from the hotel; we did get sore feet at times and it was nice to have such convenient public transportation to fall back on.
We booked a superior room with a *lovely* patio looking out over the rooftops. It was nice and quiet in this part of town and we slept wonderfully (which was not the case in the other 2 hotels we tried in Rome only a few blocks away. We wish we had just returned to the Farnese!)
The staff is quite professional, they arranged a convenient airport transfer for us via email and you can rely on their excellent restaurant recommendations (not the tourist traps that other hotels like to point you toward). Their breakfast is very good, and the room they serve it in... looking out over the rooftops... was very romantic, even at 8AM! The woman helping out with breakfast was particularly pleasant, and she makes a mean cappuccino, you only have to ask.
