We came to Rome on our Honeymoon, and had never been before. I made the arrangements for this hotel online (via email), 2 months before I arrived. I was a little nervous about that, but Angela (our hostess) was awesome, and greeted me by name when we arrived! we got there early, and the people leaving our room were just checking out. We needed to wait for it to be cleaned before we could check in, but Angela let us stow our bags there, gave us a priceless detailed map (that was better than the one from my guide book, by far!), and showed us the lay of the land (and several restaurant recommendations) so we could go have lunch while she cleaned the room. The location is spectacular! We walked from Piazza Navona to the Pantheon (which was literally around the corner). The room was spacious, clean, and had several outlets. The wifi had a strong signal, and the simple breakfast Angela prepared was great. I cannot say enough good things about the location. We walked everywhere: spanish steps, trevi fountain, pantheon, the capitoline, the colosseum, all from the hotel.
The ONE* draw back was the noise outside (especially in the evening). I think it's something that goes with the great location though, I mean, because the hotel is near everything, people are walking by and because restaurants are close you can hear diners. The rooms are not on the first floor and that helped a bit with the noise, but I noticed it a bit at night. During the day, though, it was fun to open the window and watch people pass :)
All together, the hotel was one of the best, and Angela's recommendations are spot on which makes for a fabulous introduction to Rome. It was worth every penny in my book!
