My wife and I, celebrating our 60th birthdays in Europe, spent 4 nights at the Hotel Rosetta in mid May 2007. We had room 7 which was on the 2nd floor inside corner, just above the most wonderful little restaurant one could want. More on that later. Our room , average in size compared to our previous 10 days in Paris, Florence and Sienna, included washroom and shower was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had two windows overlooking the small streets below that gave a intriguing look upon Italian life passing by. Any street noise was shut out when the windows were closed. The price was very low compared to other offerings when we were booking, but worth double. The location was a few minutes walk to all the sights of ancient Rome. The only public transport, buses just outside the main doors, we used was to go to the Vatican/ St Peters, and to the train station on our leaving. It is amazing close to everything and so much more.
The staff at this hotel were wonderful. It is family run with some help. Special kudo's to the young daughter, ( we apologize we do not remember her name) and to Gianni. They spoke great English, as compared to our Italian, and were willing and able to provide any information and suggestions to assist our visit to Rome.
The restaurant downstairs. At the recommendation of Gianni, we tried this wonderful place the first night we were there. Sufficed to say we were impressed. This was Italy!! We tried a different location the next night, but came back the next two nights. The meals are wonderful, staff are great and they serve a wonderful red wine. Our meals were long, delicious, entertaining and the whole bottle of wine later, it was only a few steps home!
We would most definately recommend this hotel to anyone wanting the Rome experience. We will be back for sure!!
