I booked this after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor as a present for my husband and I must say we were not disappointed. We arrived to the hotel early and asked to leave our luggage while we started looking around Rome, however our room was ready so we were able to book in early unpack and start seeing the sights by lunchtime. The hotel was very easy to find after a short walk from the Termini, also very near 2 Metro stations. The room was very clean and a really good size, i thought the pillow menu was very good, I was able to get a softer pillow at the same time my husband prefers a harder on so we both got a good sleep.There are also lots of lovely restaurants along the Via Urbana, we didn't have any problem finding a good place to eat without having to travel far.The breakfast was very good with lots of choice. The coffee available at the hotel all day was also a really nice touch as sometimes you just want to have a sit down with a coffee at the end of the day. The staff were very helpful, friendly & efficient, a special mention to Elena who help us navigate the metro. Also it was a really nice touch to receive an email prior to arrival. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for somewhere central as the Colosseum & Roman Forum were close by and we were able to walk everywhere except St Peter's which we were able to find with easy thanks to Elena's Metro guidance. I'm glad the hotel didn't have a bar or restaurant in the building as i think it would have changed the experience, but not having them in my opinion it made it a more comfortable homely place.
