Let's start by saying traveling with 6 people on a 10 day trip around Italy isn't easy! Finding somewhere that everyone wants to stay isn't easy either! This hotel was a great value. Everyone could agree on that! The location, perfect! We walked to the train easily (5 minutes) and went to The Vatican one day and the Collessium the next. We walked back from the Collessium which was long, but we saw TONS of sites! The map they give you at check in is very useful and the ladies at the desk were helpful in directing us! We at some declicious food while in Rome and this hotel was the perfect central location to what everyone wanted to do! The rooms are small.... but again, who goes to Rome to sit in their room?? Two other people we were traveling with were in a double bed room and it was even smaller than our one bed room. Stick with the one bed! The breakfast was good and was in a cute little room on the roof top. We enjoyed sitting on the roof top with the wine we bought while in town and hanging out. It was very peaceful! You can tell it is a small hotel because everything is small... but it was nice! Perfect stay in Rome!

Room Tip: Stay in a room with ONE bed. They are small but not a small as the two bed rooms!

we were recommended this hotel by a family member who has previously stayed there a few times... the staff were very helpful - particularly Francesca. A perfect base for sightseeing, literally 5 mins walk from Trevi Fountain or to Barberini Metro. The roof terrace is lovely for breakfast (ask for a cappuccino and they are happy to do that for you, plus fresh home made ricotta cake) and evening drinks (free wine/prosecco/water is a lovely touch). Great local restaurants - Hosteria Sofia just round the corner is a must... Car service booked from hotel is friendly and professional. Can't wait to go back!

A small very well presented hotel in a quiet area yet only 5 mins from the fountain and steps. All Staff were excellent and recommended great restaurants and the local Jazz club(Gregory's) which is a must for any Jazz fan or cocktail fan! The desk staff were knowledgeable on the areas to visit and were very friendly. Rooms were a good size and very clean, the only complaint was that in our room on the 4th floor (top) the shower was a little weak and slightly strange layout. The complimentary evening drinks were very welcome. Roof top although small was absolutely fantastic place to relax, a real treat. Breakfast was a good quality buffet with excellent fresh coffee. Free wi-fi worked really well and was reliable and Sky TV was a plus.

Spend three nights at this hotel and from our arrival to departure the staff were fantastic (Gabriel on reception was exceptionally pleasant and very helpful.

Our room was very clean and comfortable and the lady who cleaned it very pleasant and it was much appreciated.

Lovely hotel situated centrally in Rome within walking distance from the Spanish stairs. There are a number of good resturants on the street. The service on the hotel is excellent and friendly. Very nice terrace with free wine, water and chips. It is not modern, but everything works and the rooms are nice and clean.

Just spent four days in Rome----in 97° heat – the staff, atmosphere, air-conditioning was all so splendid..... Excellent rooftop lounge, stocked mini fridge, very spare luxury but extremely good value. It was extremely good practice not to have to worry about the complimentary wine, beer, water and the cheer with which amenities were provided was top notch.... Just a few blocks from the Spanish steps, easy access to the Pantheon and several fantastic museums....

Room Tip: The room at the back was very quiet, smaller than those on front – I missed not having a bathtub but...

Stayed 4 nights at this lovely boutique hotel in Roma. Well located, great breakfast + comfy, atmospheric rooftop lounge..
Friendly, knowledgable staff that really made my stay in Roma a memorable one.
A special mention for gorgeous Francesca at front of house, who ensured everything was in place for me + who went out of her way to make my stay a pleasant one. Highly recommend this lovely establishment..
