We began our trip to Europe in Rome and were lucky enough to have stayed at this hotel.
This is a 5 star property housed in the remains of ancient Roman baths. There is one bath preserved and on show in the basement.
Our initial impression of the hotel was exciting... a large circular fountain in the square, opposite the Basilica Maria which would create the lovely view we saw from our gorgeous front room each day.
The front desk staff were efficient and helpful and upgraded our room because the one we booked was not ready for us and we had requested early arrival.
The room was wonderful. Very large with Italianate furniture and ample built in closets. The bathroom had marble clad walls, floors and counters with more than enough space for 2 people and had a shower and bathtub.
We noticed in other reviews that this hotel has experienced problems with flooding from the showers and indeed we found this out the second last day of our stay. We think that it is a construction flaw ??? but housekeeping answered the call and mopped up as best they could that evening and returned early next morning to rectify the problem.
No big deal we just continued to use the bath tub.
We enjoyed the beautiful buffet breakfast served on the 1st floor dining room each day. Fresh fruit, juices, cereals, breads, pastries, cakes, cheeses, meats and eggs together with a hot dish which could be ordered from the menu.
Hot tea and coffee was plentiful. Service was excellent.
The pool was small but ample for a late afternoon swim after a hot day of touring.
We found many great restaurants within a very short walking distance of this hotel.
We attempted to travel on city transport on our first day but were thankfully deterred because they were so over- crowded. Pick pockets do their best work in conditions like that, so we took taxis wherever we needed to go from then on.
Rome was hot and crowded while we were there mid- August but we loved every minute of our time and would without hesitation recommend the Boscolo Exedra for a luxurious stay.
