The hotel is located about 2 blocks from the Piazza del Popolo. From there, you can access everywhere on foot, including the Vatican City (furthest attraction) in 45 min. We walked to/from the Spanish Steps, Borghese Gallery, and Trevi Fountain. One day, we walked from the Colosseum, through the Roman Forum, up Capitoline Hill, to the Pantheon, to the famous Alfredo alla Scrofa restaurant and back to the hotel. Yes, my feet hurt! But it sure is safer to walk than using the metro due to pick-pocketers. But if you want to use the metro, the Flaminia station is just a few minutes away. Restaurants in the neighborhood, including a Burger King. My favorite is the sit down Italian restaurant a few shops from Burger King. You can watch them make your pizza! Villa Borghese is within 10 min walk from the hotel. A big park with bike and Segway rentals. The Zoo is also located in this park.
The staff were incredibly friendly and they all speak English. Drinks are half price during Happy Hour (6-10 pm). An assortment of appertizers are served. Breakfast is very good with lots of varieties for everyone.
We had a triple room. There wasn't much room for our luggage but we had a sizable bathroom. The shower was a bit awkward with a half glass shield over the tub. I did not master taking a shower without getting the marble floor wet, but nothing the towel mat can't dry. We used the safe for valuables. We love to be able to control the room temperature. After a hot and humid day out and about, it was very nice to walk into a cool "home".
We stayed for 4 nights and would stay here again. Good wifi!
Back to location... If you are staying there on a Sunday, Via del Corso is closed to traffic for a few blocks. We walked back from the Spanish steps about 6:30 pm and the shoppers are out. Shops close at 10 pm.
