OK, how much room do I have? My stay here was simply amazing. Due to a "travel document issue" which extended my stay in Rome by a few days, I was brought here by a car service, telling the driver I needed a hotel near the Swiss Embassy.
Again, I didn't know what to expect as I was delivered to the classically styled, upscale property. It was a situation of "any port in a storm". I was warmly welcomed by the front desk staff. My room was stylish, very comfortable, great amenities, comfortable huge bed with quality linens. Beautiful lobby, marble and rich upholstery throughout, The property is very well maintained, the outside areas have great landscaping, and someone is always cleaning something. The hotel has a restaurant. There is a limited menu, but the dishes were wonderfully prepared. One of the desk clerks had mentioned the restaurant, then called me in the room to apologize that there was a private party that night, so the restaurant was not available. That was just one example of attention to detail. After the 2nd day, they stop asking your room number, they just seem to know you.
Breakfast was included, a good assortment. The area is quite upscale, with beautiful residences surrounding the property. They clearly welcome international travelers with wonderful, warm hospitality. Within walking distance is a central square, little restaurants. 10 minutes by cab is the central area, near the Villa Borghese, the Rome Zoo, and many other locations I don't recall.
When you travel, service is key, especially in a foreign country where it can be easy to feel a bit overwhelmed. There were some continual travel issues, and the staff was so gracious about extending my stay, even though it was clear they were filling up. I must not be a good poker player, because Massimilliano at the front desk kept telling me to "remember to laugh!" Anderson was another star, as was Liana (sp?) The wi-fi was reliable and kept me in touch with home.
There were absolutely no downsides to this property. It is a hidden jewel, and one I hope to experience again. Again, my heartfelt thanks to the staff for helping a stranded traveler!
