We enjoyed a weekend away in Rome and chose Hotel Boccaccio due to the location . Hotel Boccaccio is found down a side street and very close to Trevi, Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps and that area of Rome.
The hotel itself is the owners home and she lets out some of the rooms . We had a room with our own bathroom but the shower was tiny .. I am only 5ft 4 but the shower cubicle was too small for me. The shower curtain did not really do the job and as much as I tried the floor always got sopping wet.
This is an Eco Hotel so the towels, sheets are not changed everyday and the towels are also very very rough and worn.
The other main issue I had with this hotel and something I had not thought about was Air Conditioning ... wow we missed this and next time in Rome I would always choose a hotel that offered this. The problem was even though we were down a 'quiet' side street at night this place seemed to come alive !! There is a bar and restaurants underneath and at night this place is so noisy so you honestly cannot sleep with the window open. We had to suffer ...
The best thing about this hotel was the location and even though we spent hardly anytime in the room I would choose to stay somewhere else next time as I noticed those little things like good toiletries, soft towels and air con really are worth the price to us.
