I arrived very late (because of flight delays and huge taxi queues; so didn't get to the property till midnight despite saying I'd be there at 8:30pm), and Marco was still so happy to greet us and show us our room! Thank you!
The location is great. If you connect Vatican City, Spanish Steps and the Colloseum, Surprising in Rome is in the middle of this triangle! It's a very safe area; I was comfortable walking around on my own at night, up until midnight even.
This is like staying at someone's home (you have your own room with ensuite and door lock) and you have a shared kitchen/breakfast area and have access to a stove & kitchen bench, fridge, microwave and dryer too. It can get noisy at night because you're on the main road, but we were so tired that the noise/traffic didn't disrupt our sleep at all. Slept right through it!
The rooms are very tidy, They are cleaned everyday by Marco. There is no shampoo/shower gel though, so make sure you bring your own.
There is free wi-fi too. Very fast connection too. :D
