Jean, her family and staff were all wonderful. We are independent travelers who stay in a wide range of properties. The hospitality of the English speaking staff set this small basic clean hotel apart. They had everything you needed, a comfy clean bed, full bath, tv, a/c, and a basic continental breakfast with great coffee to get you started. The location was decent for us, who typically walk and take public transportation everywhere.
The hotel is situated in a nice part of the commercial center of Rome, that always felt very safe, many restaurants around..about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the Train Station (Termini). Bus lines are also very close to the hotel. We found the Coliseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi, Pantheon, Forum, all on foot. We used buses to get everywhere else.
Do not expect a store front location...or a glitzy lobby. You get buzzed in to an old typical office building, with an old iron cage elevator, and wide easy old marble staircase..your first impression is kind of questionable. One floor up, and you'll find the hotel, on one floor, very compact, old fashioned, clean. The price was very good for a very expensive city. It is apparent they put love into what they do. There will be no other destination for us, we we next visit Roma. Thanks Jean for making us feel so comfortable!
