The location near the Piazza del Popolo is absolutely great. We did all our sightseeing on foot - a nice walking distance to both the Vatican and the Colosseum/Forum area.
We had breakfast included, they have juice, some cereals, standard Italian white bread rolls, salami, prosciutto and cheese and a wide selection of sweet pastries which is part of every Italian breakfast. Just make sure to note that you can order your espresso or cappuccino from the waitress. Much better than what u get out of the self service machine.
The hotel is in a nice old building, very well maintained and clean. Way above what you can find in Italy a lot of times.
Really the only downside are the small rooms with the almost too tiny bathrooms. That is even for local standards. But since you probably don't come to Rome to spend much more time than what you need for sleeping in your room we didn't find that to be a problem. Just think twice about it if you are much above 1,90 m (6 ft 2 in) in height ;)
Overall we would recommend this place anytime.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is situated in a pedestrian area near Spanish Steps and Popolo Squares, which is extremely quiet and just few meters far from the big Villa Borghese parking. What makes the hotel unique among the others in the capital city is the building fascination; it is in fact a beautiful 1700 palace. Moreover, the hotel is one of the few that, being located in the centre of Rome, can offer advantage our rates. ... more less
