My wife and I had a wonderful time traveling with the Vatican Observatory Foundation and several of the Jesuit astronomers that work there.
Our hotel in Rome, the Grand Hotel de la Minerve was conveniently located across from the Pantheon and within walking distance of Trevi Fountain and Bernini's Four Rivers fountain in the Piazza Navona (site of a scene in Tom Hanks' Angels and Demons).
This hotel had a fantastic breakfast European style buffet with lifesaving cappuchino. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The lobby was beautiful, as was the bar and restaurant with great views.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your kind review, indeed we are placed in the very heart of Rome.
Our location allows to walk to the city’s main monuments or shopping streets, without taking taxis. We look forward having you again as our most welcome guest, best regards

Stayed for 2 nights on a city break, Firstly the location could not be better, about 50 meters from pantheon, and within easy walking distance of all other major attractions. We stayed in a superior room and was easily the best we had stayed in Europe: large well maintained and great view.
We did have a major issue during the trip that could have affected our stay however the duty manager and other staff dealt with it well above our expectation and turned what could have been an issue into a huge positive.
The rooftop bar and restaurant has the best view in the ancient quarter, Although it is very pricey (40 euros for two drinks and Dinner 150 euro +) it is first class and well worth it if you can afford it.
Breakfast was decent, not for the lack of choice but is as good as anything you will find in the area.
We will stay here again, my only advice would not to book direct as we saved over 50% by getting it on another site.

Room Tip: we had Superior Room 559, it was a corner room , very large, sunny and back a little from the square. very quite.

As many have mentioned, this is a great location for walking to almost everywhere in Rome. However, do not expect a 5 star experience. Our room was fine, though a bit threadbare. The door lock was very hard to operate. Service from the hotel staff was adequate but not more. No one to help us with luggage or door upon arrival. Front desk staff was most occupied with higher priorities than serving customers. Two very bad experiences: Late one afternoon at the roof top bar it was almost impossible to get served, even though it was not crowded. The server walked by us several times, carefully avoiding all eye contact. We even moved tables, trying to be served. Finally he acknowledged our presence and we had the privilege of paying $38 for one glass of wine and a beer. We had arranged a car to the airport with the concierge, confirmed it several times, but upon checkout there was total confusion, no car, multiple people giving us incorrect information. Finally we were able to take another guest's car (which had arrived early). Would have been better and cheaper just to take a cab. Also, coffee at breakfast was cold most days, and for some reason this was an impossible problem to solve. My sense is they have management (and ownership) that doesn't care much about their guests' experiences. They rely on their location for business.

Can't get a better location for a hotel in Rome! Pricey but definitely worth it if you are able to get one of the newer rooms! Service was satisfactory and the breakfast spread is pretty decent. Lots of fabulous restaurants very close to the hotel. A taxi stand right outside the hotel is also great if you don't feel like walking!

Room Tip: Rooms in the older part of the hotel are terrible. Mine did not even have a window. Other members of the team had rooms in the newer part of the hotel and these are fabulous!

Stayed here for 3 nights and got back Saturday the 26th. We were really lucky with weather about 22-25 degrees when it broke out from the morning clouds. The hotel is very pretty and grand. Concierge are incredibly helpful, couldn't do enough. Very friendly and no queue's for check in which is what I’m use to.
We got a white/yellow taxi from out front of the Fiumicino airport for 48 euro which was fixed rate for Rome. Quick and easy as trains and taxi wouldn’t have saved much we thought.
We were on 5th floor, room was perfect, comfy massive bed, hairdryer in bathroom not massively powerful but fine. Powerful shower, big windows and small balcony to look out over the Pantheon. Was quite loud at night being in the heart of it all so was quite difficult to have windows open as I kept being woken up, but they were the sounds of people having fun so didn’t bother me at all.
In every direction there was something. We pre booked Vatican and Sistine Chapel, Colosseum which I’d recommend (get the 3 in 1 ticket so you do it all) as the queues were massive. Did Pantheon which is more magical than we thought, amazing building seriously. Vinezia the Christmas cake as it’s known which we just loved to look at and every day we walked by deliberately and, the museum to the right of it of the first king of Rome. Do the lift to top as well as we missed this and probably regret slightly also and the cafe with 360 views before this lift, Navona with fountains and other Basilica’s, do this day and night as so beautiful, great restaurants there though as can sit out opposite the fountains, Colosseum, Forum and Paletine hill, Vatican, Sistine chapel, St peters Basilica which blew us away. Trevi fountain all light come on when dark and it gets so busy but again worth seeing day and night, walked to the tiber river, Spanish steps where you just have to be careful when someone shoves 3 roses in your hand and says free. As they’re not free and wasn’t happy with the few pennies we gave him. Easier to just say no really or just don’t latch on like I did. Hold onto cameras tightly, had a couple of looks but overall if you secure things well and hold onto camera with strap around wrists then we didn’t have any issues at all. Saint Eustachio around corner which was great for breakfast and amazing coffee. Then with Pantheon behind you, walk up and past the church on the left you have Della Palma, don’t miss this, twix, profiterole, strawberry cheesecake, nutella etc...amazing!
Would stay at this hotel again as perfect location to walk everywhere and amazing break away. Rooftop you shouldn't miss, yes expensive drinks 13 euro for a glass of wine but you get almonds, olives and nuts and an amazing view with the best sunset which we got ;-).

Room Tip: Had a side view to Pantheon which was great but as side street a little loud with windows open but great view. Higher is better I'd think from reviews.
